free prequel novella to the Soul Screamers series
Kaylee Cavanaugh seems like a normal teenager, but she is not. She lives with a secret that threatens to destroy her life. She feels when a person is going to die soon and on one occasion can't hold back ear-splitting screams and totally freaks out. Her aunt and uncle don't know what's happening so she is delivered to a mental hospital. Will Kaylee be able to go back to a more normal life?
Lately I heard a lot of great things about the books by Rachel Vincent and when I found this free novella I was happy to get to know her writing style and to decide if I enjoy it.
I was captured by "My soul to lose" from the first sentences on. Kaylee's ability is fascinating and creepy, the situation is so hard to handle for her and I'm super excited to read more about it. Her stay in the mental hospital is not whitewashed and to see her so helpless was very gripping. I enjoyed learning a bit about Kaylee and her life. This prequel was interesting, thrilling and the perfect entrance for the Soul Screamers series.
Interesting, a bit mysterious and just right.
The perfect mix of teen drama and paranormal mystery. After reading this prequel I'm super excited for "My soul to take".
