If I Die by Rachel Vincent

The latest addition to the Soul Screamers world came out a few weeks ago and I had the pleasure of reading it on release day. It has however taken me awhile to figure out what to say about it since so much went on and ALL of it was spoilery. Here’s the description from Amazon:

The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.

But the next scream might be for Kaylee.

Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.

But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.

My first reaction after reading this book was “huh?” followed by “what!?” then followed by “wow!?” This is in my opinion the best book in the series. So much happened in the book with all the characters it was as if your head was spinning. Furthermore, you never knew what was going to happen next.

I don’t want to give much away about the book but since this is in the summary on Amazon I will talk about it a little: the fact that Kaylee might be dying soon is cause for insanity as a reader. I could not stop reading because you have no idea what is going to happen with that plot. I think that some readers may have to “settle down” after realizing the plot of the book but it is by far one of the best that Rachel Vincent has written. I am anticipating mixed feelings about this book from reviewers because there is change. Any time there is change in a series some people shut down and stop liking the series. I am not one of those people.

If you are looking to read a really good book then this is the one for you. The writing and plot are amazing in this one and we really get to see some things from different perspectives. I give this one a 5/5 and if it was possible I would give it more since I was obsessive about finishing the book!
