Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.
Until something does.
Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.
And so is someone else…
“Damn it, Tod!” He glared in the reaper’s general direction. “Do not sneak up on me in my own house–I don’t care how dead you are! Show yourself or get out.”
My Soul to Keep is a slightly better read than My Soul to Save. This is at least in part because it is definitely less side story than the last book. It still kind of feels like filler for what Rachel Vincent really wants to do with the story, but less so. There are some definite parts to this book that are very important to the rest of the series, though the entire events in this book rely on one single event in the last one.
This definitely feels like a teen drama/teen problem sort of book. My Soul to Keep is entirely focused on how everyone in Nash’s social circle has gotten hooked on drugs, and how Kaylee wants to save them all. The only reason this is paranormal instead of teen fiction is because the drug is paranormal in origin. Honestly, was a total bore for me. The best part of this book was the foreshadowing that happens for the rest of the series. It is so subtle, I’m glad I’m rereading this series.
After being the best person in the entire book last time around, Nash has turned into a fucking asshole, and I hate him. The crap he pulls this book is unreal, and I wish Kaylee would dump him for real. I don’t care what the circumstances are, fuck him. Some shit you just cannot recover from. On the other side, Tod is hilarious to have around. Pure awesome, and I love him. He has improved a lot after the idiocy he pulled the last go around. Also in relationships, Kaylee’s dad is trying to be a dad, but her thinking she is all grown up is getting on my nerves and getting in the way of their relationship.
While an improvement on the last book, I still was bored during this book. I’m still looking forward to the next book in the hopes that it is better still! This just felt unnecessary for the most part.
