No one wants to be this teacher’s pet . . .
Everyone else is talking about Eastlake High’s gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck, but Kaylee Cavanaugh has bigger things on her mind. Kaylee’s a banshee—her scream is a portent of death.
But the next scream might hit too close to home. Kaylee’s borrowed lifeline has almost run out.
Yeah—it’s a shock to her, too. So to distract herself from her own problems, Kaylee is determined to defend her school against the latest supernatural threat. That hot new teacher is really an incubus, who feeds from the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend’s delinquent ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren’t quite human either.
But Kaylee’s running out of time, and those who love her will do anything to save her life.
Soul Screamers: The last thing you hear before you die.
While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the last book in this series, I still adore the series as a whole. I read a review of this book this past week on My Overstuffed Bookshelf and when I came across this part of the review, my heart started pounding in excitement or anxiety? I have no idea. All I know is that I need to read this book.
Have you chosen Team Tod or Team Nash? Well, I thought I had until I read this book. Be prepared to have shocking discoveries and heartache as you turn each page. There are decisions to be made that can change the outcome for all characters involved that you won’t believe until you read about it. Secrets are revealed from numerous characters leaving quite a fallout on others in the book. Favorites of the series return, along with deaths to some you won’t expect. You will be cheering for characters you didn’t even know you wanted to cheer for.
I’ve already pre-ordered my copy of it but I’m more than a little anxious for it because I need to know what happens. I read on Rachel Vincent’s blog where she said that she never thought of a love triangle between Tod and Nash with Kaylee because there isn’t a choice for Kaylee since she has no idea about Tod’s feelings for her. I’m holding on to that for dear life and while I love Tod with everything that I am, I can’t for the life of me want Kaylee to end up with him. My heart belongs to Nash and I love that the romance between Nash and Kaylee isn’t perfect. I love that they have their problems that they’re working through and because of everything that they’ve been through, I want them to end up together.
And so that is why I’m looking forward to reading this book. I have to read this book. I need to know what happens and I need to know that Tod and Kaylee don’t get even closer than they’ve been getting so far.
For me, the love triangle was Kaylee/Nash/Sabine. Nash loved both of these girls and he made his choice in My Soul to Steal. To me, that’s what makes a love triangle, when someone loves two people and has a choice to make. There were quite a few times when I was scared (I still am) that he would lean the other way and I think that’s what makes love triangles so delicious. They keep you on your toes.
I’m hoping against hope that Kaylee ends up with Nash. I’m hoping with everything I have that what Tod said in My Soul to Steal is full of BS because I don’t buy it. You can read all about my thoughts on that in my review here.
Either way, this book comes out October 1, 2011 and man is time slowly inching closer to that release date. I needed it to be October 1st two months ago.
Team Nash for me! Mark your calendars readers, you won’t want to miss this one!
..and that’s your scoop!
