Product Description:

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 Thoughts:

I so love this unique series.  The idea of bean sidhes, reapers, the Netherworld, proxys, Demon's Breath as a drug, it's all so new and refreshing.  It was so enjoyable to dive into this world again.  I've really come to love the characters of these books, and really connect with all of them on one level or another. Kaylee is a strong teen voice that is vulnerable and yet she manages to save the day over and over again.  Nash is a great male lead, you really connect with the relationship and feelings between him and Kaylee.  I absolutely adore Tod, he's so funny and snarky, yet you can tell he really cares for his family and Kaylee.  He's really grieving over the loss of Addy in the last book.

I knew that I really enjoyed this book when I had so many emotions going through my system.  I felt like the betrayal happened to me, the pain was mine, the tears and smiles and laughter, all mine.  There was so much action and suspense that it kept me on the edge of my seat turning the pages from beginning to end.  This series deals with alot of dark topics, death, addiction, sex.  There are alot of hard choices that these characters have to make and they are all done well.  I can't wait for the next installment in this series, I'm so excited to see where Rachel will take Kaylee next.

  3. Hi Angel,
    I just found your blog through a post at Ginny's blog in which we both won an award. Congrats, by the way.

    I love your blog and was so excited to land on this review of My Soul to Keep because I just finished My Soul to Save two days ago! I like this series a lot, too... and find Kaylee's teenage voice very real. I'm looking forward to reading this one! Thanks for the review. :)

  5. This is a series I really want to read! I didn't want to read any spoilers for previous books so I only skimmed, but this series is on my TBR!

  6. Hey RA, just wanted to let you know that if you thought this book was great (which it is!), wait til you read MSTSteal! I promise you, Rachel not only finds the perfect way to continue Kaylee's story, she raises the stakes in a way that blindsided me and blew my mind. She's incredible, and the series just gets better and better. --Natashya
