With All My Soul: review

With All My Soul: review

Title: With All My Soul (Soul Screamers #7) Author: Rachel Vincent Rating:  4 out of 5 stars Release Date: March 26, 2013 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Age Group: YA Source: ARC from publisher       So here it is: the conclusion of yet another of my favorite series. Did all the YA writers get together to plot to torture us in 2013? No spoilers below, even if you haven’t started the series yet. My favorite thing about Soul Screamers: Kaylee has grown so much over the course of these books.

I am happy to report that the magic is back again for this latest installment of the Bloodlines series, which follows the problems that Alchemist Sydney Sage encounters as she tries to protect Jill, the spare to the vampire throne.

Wraith: review

Wraith: review

I picked up Wraith thinking I was in for a creepy story about a girl driven to madness by the haunting presence of ghosts. And while that was true in a sense, the overall story was much different than I expected. And I kind of loved that. Jane Watts is an outcast at her new school, all because she got into a very public fight with her best friend, Evan. Normally, that kind of public display would blow over in just a couple days, except in this case, Evan’s dead, and no one can see him but Jane. Her outburst in the hall earns her a permanent Freak label, as far as her classmates are concerned. But Jane’s okay with that. Mostly. She has Evan, after all. The sweet, protective ghost who lives in her room, and seems to want nothing more than to be her friend. She’s even learned… Read more »
