With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent
Series: Soul Screamers #7
Release Date: 03/26/213
What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It's time to kick some hellion butt... After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever. But then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything she has....
So I've always heard that the Soul Screamers is a must-read series but I never picked it up though I don't why I didn't because IT IS FLIPPIN' AWESOME! I seriously blew through all seven books in one week (that's good because I don't know what would happen if I had to wait for the last book to come out). Reading the series from start to end without waiting seem to make me sad now that the series is over. But that's okay! 'Cause we're here to talk about the awesome-ness that is With All My Soul. (I'll be talking about this book but also the series in general)
My favorite part about this book/series? The characters. Definitely the characters. All of them are so well-written and three dimensional, and surprisingly enough, I actually like all of them! (even the evil ones) Kaylee, though stubborn and smart, doesn't make dumbass decisions like some other heroines. Her greatest flaw/quality is perhaps loyalty to her friends. That gets her into a lot of trouble but creates really great friendship among the gang. Tod, my favorite reaper doesn't actually become the love interest until the middle of the series (if I remember correctly). Tod is always there to peep/stalk someone and he's always the funny and humourous one. I will not go on about how great Tod is just because we'd be here for a while if I did that. Other notable characters were Nash and Sabine, etc. I mentally yelled at Nash a lot throughout the book but now I do kinda like him. Sabine is my favorite nightmare and that is all I have to say about her.
The plan on beating Avari was so smart! I respect Kaylee, for thinking of that. It is one hell of a plan! I won't go into detail and spoil for you guys. But, BRAVA KAYLEE WOOHOO. Proud of ya, girl.
The ending of this series was definitely satisfying for me. Though it is sad for me to see them go, I think it tied a nice end to this series. I will always keep them (especially Tod) in my heart forever. It ended nicely and still gave you room to think beyond the end :3
I have nothing negative about this book/series. Just praises! (Though there were a few times I was a bit upset/broken over the romance)
If you haven't read it yet (which is probably only a few people), you need to go out there and read it! You won't regret it! Well-written and satisfying, With All My Soul is the last book that ended the whole series with one big BAM.
