My Soul To Take Teaser by Rachel Vincent

Rachel Vincent is one of my favorite Urban Fantasy/Paranormal authors ever and her werecat series is one of my favorite reads. Now, she has written a new YA series. It is called the Soul Screamers and it centers on a teenage bean sidhe (banshee). Here is a little summary from Rachel. Caution!!! once you read about it you will want NOW! I had this posted as one of my WOW's earlier this year. Check it out here.

My Soul to Take is available for pre-order at Unfortunately there isn't any cover art yet, but when there is I will let you know

Soul Screamers:

Kaylee Cavanaugh is a high school junior who thinks she’s losing her mind when she’s struck by the grim certainty that someone near her is going to die–and by the irresistible urge to shriek in response. But when it turns out that she’s not crazy and people are dying, Kaylee becomes determined to stop the deaths she foresees. Especially when they begin to hit close to home…

WOW!! sounds amazing right? Now here is the teaser that she has given to us to keep us wanting for more and I am hooked.

My Soul To Take, teaser:

Nervous sweat gathered on my palms, and for once I was glad I couldn’t talk. I swallowed, my throat clenching around the scream scalding me from the inside. The gray haze was darker now, though no thicker. I could see through it easily, yet it tainted everything my terrified gaze landed on, as if the entire gym had been draped in a translucent cloud of smog. And still things moved on the edge of my vision, drawing my eye in first one direction, then another. I would have given anything to be able to speak in that moment, not just to warn Emma - because that was evidently a moot point- but to ask Nash what the hell was going on. Could he see what I saw? More important, could they see us?

This sounds too amazing for words and I cannot wait to read this series. Any additional information can be found at Deadline Dames on Rachel's post, or you can visit Rachel's blog and web site too! Below are links to her amazing werecat series.

Even before you posted the teaser I was drooling at the thought of getting my hand on this book.

I can't wait to see the cover art.

Your welcome! I am very happy to promote Rachel Vincent because I love her Werecat series. It is really cool that some authors are also creating series for the YA market. Authors like Kim Harrison, Michelle Rowen, and lili St. Crow

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
