Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.Until something does.
Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.And so is someone else…
~ My Review ~
I found My Soul to Keep to be much harder to read the second time through, because I knew exactly who was going to die, who was going to go crazy, and the plot twists that pop in to blow your mind. Not that I didn't totally enjoy every minute I spent in the amazingly crafted world Rachel Vincent created, it just hurt my heart to know everything that Kaylee was going to have to go through, again.
Kaylee has finally served her sentence out for the last time she saved someone's life, and she is just about to get some much deserved Nash time, when she finds herself right in the middle of another life of death situation. I really feel sorry for the poor girl. She is always trying to do the right thing and making these impossibly hard decisions, and all the thanks she seems to get is a heap-load of guilt and a month's grounding. I really want to like her dad, but really, his parenting methods drive me nuts.
This chapter in Kaylee's story focuses on the jocks of her school getting addicted to Demon's Breath. Kaylee and Nash are trying to put a stop to it before it gets too late without narking on his friends, and they have to protect Emma and Sophie from getting affected second hand--without being able to actually tell them anything.
Some things I was able to figure out pretty easily, and others were a complete shock. I have a favourite moment that includes someone getting hit over the head with a universal remote. This isn't my favourite book in the series because of how sad I feel at the end, but definitely a great book and a worthwhile read.
