Thoughts on My Soul to Lose
Honestly speaking, Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series has been on my TBR list for a long time and I finally decided to give it a shot and read it! I'm glad to have picked up Volume #1 because the book contains the prequel, the very first book and second book in the series which absolutely works for me really well!

For me, My Soul to Lose was pretty exciting to discover about who Kaylee may be and it sounded really creepy and frightening at first when you have no any clue or whatsoever happening to her current mental health. I felt like I was truly in a different dimension in her head with the prequel. I have to say it was kind of torturing too because it was difficult to cope with what Kaylee went through. What disappointed me was how it was mind-numbing at the point where I had enough of the situation of Kaylee repeatedly and constantly on the topic of not being a crazy in the head. Plus, her uncle and aunt may or may not have trusted her 'human' instinct and take her home.

Thoughts on My Soul to Take and My Soul to Lose
The friendship counts for this book so much I have to say the advantages of it. I enjoyed the way Kaylee and Emma are best friends. Kaylee isn't alone on this journey both in the human world and her other part of personal world. Emma's always been there for Kaylee to understand her and that Kaylee does not have to go through the mystery of her own madness.

The characters Nash and Tod are going to be intriguing part of the series as they are revealed in the two books. They introduced Kaylee to the world unknown to her but always been a part of her. She didn't know any information other than the circle of friends she created and she's already grateful for that as she has now discovered more about her peculiar self.

Now that Kaylee has the potential and much more aware of her ability, she uses it to her best intentions to save people. The purpose has been given to her to be alive and not someone hero but to fulfill a positive life living with her family and friends. Besides that the adventure continues as she faces greater obstacles to deal with in the near future. I'm already looking forward to that!

Somethings to ponder are some of Kaylee's thoughts need to be rational, especially to things that needs further consideration so that she doesn't blame herself solely responsible for the deaths of others. Others may think her reckless reaction may cause them more damage and demise but not every situation has to be her fault she couldn't save everyone.

With that, I'll end off this review and carry on with the next books in the series!
