My Soul To Lose by Rachel Vincent

My Soul To Lose

It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed and it's the worst day of her life.

Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit.

She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again. Everyone thinks she's crazy. Everyone except Lydia, that is. Another patient with some special abilities....

An eBook exclusive prequel to Rachel Vincent's SOUL SCREAMERS series.
I loved this prequel! I haven't read the rest of the series but it is definitely something I'm doing soon. Kaylee is a likeable character and even though I didn't think this book gave me enough development of hers as a person, I know that more is to come.

I loved how Rachel described the screaming, it is painfully chilling and entrancing. I would like to learn more about Kaylee's uncles because they seem like interesting characters even if we don't see too much of them in this book. Although most of the characters are a bit undeveloped, I think it is done intentionally with the purpose to bring the reader into the series slowly. I've been acquaintanced with the characters and now I want to get to know them.

I don't have much to say except that it ends in an amazing cliff hanger. I'm dying to learn more about these characters. In one sentence: "A smooth sailing intro to what appears to be a great story!"
