If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) by Rachel Vincent

IfIDieThe 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.


Okay, you can tell by the description that this one was intense and emotional and… yeah. I’m not exactly sure how to review this one. So much happens and I don’t want to risk giving anything away. As much as I’d love to ramble on and on and on about how amazing this book was, this review may turn out to be shorter than I expect. *sigh*

Kaylee and Nash are starting to get back into the groove of being a couple. Their days are filled with school, friends, family, work and the normal craziness that is part of their everyday life. Then they find out that one of their teachers isn’t exactly human and Tod drops a bombshell that turns everyone’s life upside down.

Readers spend pretty much the entire book knowing that Kaylee’s living on borrowed time. They even know when, they just don’t know how. That’s not the only thing that keeps you on the edge of your seat while you’re reading If I Die though. It’s the reactions that the characters have to what’s happening. I’m not sure how I would handle the situation that Kaylee found herself in. I gained a lot of respect for her in this book, as well as some of the other characters. Of course, I lost a lot of respect for a few of them too… and not exactly the ones that I expected.

SoulScreamersVol3The events that took place in If I Die change pretty much everything. I’m going to try to hold off a little while before I pick up the next one, but it’s going to be hard. I think I can honestly say that as of this moment, this book is my favorite so far in the Soul Screamers series. It was probably one of the most emotional ones so far anyway. Those emotions weren’t all sad, but there were plenty of teary moments. I pretty much loved every single one of them. This is definitely a series that will be re-read.

    • I got them in volumes and I have all but the last one. That one is coming out in Volume #4 with two novellas so I’m waiting. (Gotta make my collection complete.) I like reading them like this though. I really wish that they would have kept up with the Volumes in the Morganville series. *sigh*
      And yes Felicia – you NEED to read this series. It is so good. I’ve been dragging my feet with it, but I’m so glad I’ve started reading it again.
