I finished up My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent while I was on my honeymoon this week.
Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.
See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.
And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.
It’s been a while since I read the previous book in the series, so I don’t remember how I left off feeling about Nash. But in this book, I felt so bad for him. He wanted Kaylee to forgive him and for them to be back together. And then throw in his ex showing up, who is still fighting for him and who he has to defend—both against her actions and against himself.
And I really didn’t like Sabine, the ex-girlfriend. What a *itch to show up again fighting for Nash back. It’s not her place. I get that she loves him and thinks that only she can be good for him, but I’m not one of those people who buy that whole “Alls fair in love and war” thing so I didn’t like her character at all.
I really want to know what’s going to happen between Kaylee and Nash. Tod gave some very good advice, although I’m not sure I liked it and I want to know if Kaylee is going to follow it or not.
Thank goodness I have If I Die in my hands to start right now!
