When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies. So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn't wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can't cry for someone who has no soul. The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad's ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend's loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld--a consequence they can't possibly understand. Kaylee can't let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk....

Also reviewed on my blog, The Vintage Bookworm. (www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com)
I can't believe it took me eight days to read this book. I had so much going on last week that I hardly had time at all to read! I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the first book, though it was still interesting to read. I really liked learning more about Kaylee's abilities as a bean sidhe, and more about the Netherworld. Though it is definitely creepy!
You learn more about Tod in this book, which I liked because you got to know him a little more and realize he does really care about others! I really liked this side of him.
Also, Nash. *sigh* I can't wait to read more about him in the next book. You can tell Kaylee and Nash's relationship has grown since the beginning of the first book, but for some reason I didn't see that much more growth in this book, but there was a lot going on, so that was most likely the cause of it. I hope there is more growth in the next book!
I really love Kaylee's character. She will risk her life at the drop of a hat to save someone else's, even if she barely knows that person! She risks getting killed, getting bad grades from skipping school, and getting grounded! I also can't wait to see what other bean sidhe abilities she has!
Overall, I don't want to go into too much detail and risk giving away the plotline. All I can say is though I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book, I did enjoy it and I'm looking forward to the third book in the series. Rachel Vincent is a fantastic author! She's definitely on my "authors to automatically read" list.

When a famous singer dies in front of her, in the middle of a concert, Kaylee Cavanaugh begins to panic. Why? Because when someone dies near her she instantly feels the need to scream bloody murder. And when she realizes that there's no soul to sing to she and her boyfriend, Nash, know that something is wrong. Really really wrong.
The confirmation comes when Nash's brother, Tod (who is dead and is a reaper) tells them that Kaylee is not screaming because that body is empty. No soul to sing to = No screams.
But that's impossible, right? Where is her soul and most importantly: who has it?!
The answers begin to flow in the form of one of the most ancient and incredible reapers: Libby. She tells them, thanks to Tod's obvious reverence, that the poor human girl had sold her soul in exchange of fame, beauty and fortune. And that she was there to collect what replaced
And that Addison Page, another singer who was becoming very famous too, was going to be the next one to die.
The only problem was that Addison had been Tod's girlfriend once and he still had feelings for her.
And that's how Tod convinced Kaylee to help him catch the culprit and how she dragged Nash into it too. Together they would discover that even the cute and safe face of a big family-friend corporation could hide terrible secrets.
Just like the first book, My Soul to Take, this book was amazing. Honestly. I couldn't stop reading and, in fact, I finished it in 4 hours, while I was waiting for my flight to take off. How? I'm not sure, I think I just kept reading and reading, and reading non-stop. And when I finished it I re-read it just to make sure it was as awesome as I knew it was.
And yes, Rachel Vincent had rocked my world. Again.
The characters not only kept evolving and growing but also they won more shades, more colors and a lot of deepness. Kaylee turns out to be a really strong, confident and lovely character that truly cares for everyone. Nash, although very supportive of Kaylee, is more reserved and very protective while Tod is more... Tod. What can I say? Tod is a whole new concept for me, I can't wait to read more about him.
My advice? Read the series, start with it right now and make your own opinion.

So Kaylee has known that she is a bean sidhe (AKA banshee) for only a few weeks now. What that means is that she screams when ever someone is about to die. But when she and her super hot boyfriend, Nash, go to a concert and the pop singer drops dead (literally), she starts to wonder what was going on.
It turns out that she sold her soul...therefore, Kaylee couldnt sing for her soul. She isnt the only one who sold her soul though.
With the help of Nash and Tod-the-reaper-and-Nash's-brother, Kaylee helps two more pop singers try and get their souls back before they die and spend the rest of eternity being tortured.
But Kaylee, once again, finds herself in danger while trying to help her friends. Not only that, since her dad is back from Irelad and watching her every move, helping the two girls will be a challange. Especially since he doesnt want her involved in the Netherwolrd...but what else is she to do?

Six weeks after Kaylee discovers her true identity, she and her boyfriend, Nash, attend a rock concert of a mega-star. Thanks to Tod, they're able to score backstage passes.
While watching the performance from the wings, they view the lead singer collapse on stage. When Kaylee doesn't start singing, she believes the singer will survive.
She is wrong.
The singer dies without a soul. When Kaylee, Nash, and Tod talk with the oldest reaper in history, they learn she's coming back to take the opening act, Addison's, soul. Addison and Tod used to date. He convinces Kaylee and Nash to help save Addy's soul.
When someone signs away their soul, there's a loophole - you can attempt to bargain with the hellions.
Kaylee can't willingly let someone suffer for all eternity. Soon she's lying to her father, tricking Harmony into teaching her tricks to use in the Netherworld, and sneaking out to uncover answers. Before long, Addy's sister signs a contract. Now the problem deepens and it's a race against time to save two souls.
Rachel Vincent writes another thrilling tale in the SOUL SCREAMERS series, filled with danger, adventure, and romance. It's a perfect paranormal romance series.
