One word to describe Before I Wake? Amazing. It’s the best and strongest book in the series so far. I found myself squealing with joy when a good thing happened to Kaylee, shaking with fear when she was scared, and tears came to my eyes when she was upset. Rachel Vincent keeps the plot twisting and turning so I could never quite tell what was going to happen next.
Since the series is already a good ways underway, Kaylee has already become a very strong heroine. Yet the author found ways to make her stronger. When there’s trouble, she doesn’t stop fighting until she’s won. She finds new and interesting ways to take care of them as well. Don’t get in between her and someone she loves, you might not make it out in one piece.
The author always found a way to make the plot interesting. The characters are strong and well defined. And I got sucked into the story. Add it all up and I give it five stars.
Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent “recovering,” she’s back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend.
But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed. Her immortal status won’t keep her safe. And this time Kaylee isn’t just gambling with her own life...
