With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent

Oh dear, this book turned me into a blubbering mess. No joke. With All My Soul is the last book in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, so don't read the review if you don't want the previous books to be spoiled! As I was saying, this book turned me into a blubbering mess. But that's a good thing. It made me FEEL things. And the feels where intense! I could easily see the entire thing as I read it. I flew through the pages. I could not read it fast enough. The book was amazing and the perfect ending to the series. Rachel Vincent has shown, yet again, how amazing her books are!

The main character is Kaylee. She's an extremely powerful heroine, though not in supernatural powers alone. She has a strong will and will do anything for those she loves, as is proved by this book. While her strength shows in the previous books, she simply shines in this one. She makes choices no person, much less a teenager, should have to make. She makes HUGE sacrifices. Which is saying something. Kaylee has made many sacrifices in the past, but these are much bigger. Kaylee's a smart cookie though. Let me tell you, she knows exactly what she's doing, even when she thinks she doesn't. She's strong in ways many heroines (or heroes) are not. She's by far one of my favorite characters. The other characters in this book really shine and show their true strengths. From the hidden goodness in Sabine to the obvious humor in Tod. From the buried strength in Nash to the suppressed kindness in Sophie.

I love the story. It's incredible. The characters are so well developed and everything they do, say, and feel are well thought out and well done. Everything happens for a reason. Because of some of the characters, you really need to listen to the wording used. You'd be surprised what one or two words could do or mean. These stories are deep and I can relate to the characters. They feel things that real people feel. At it's core, it's a story of a girl who finds strength in herself and those around her. A girl who takes and uses that strength to make hard choices and tough decisions. And while in real life, many people don't have to make as difficult or life threatening decisions, people do have to make decisions. Especially while growing up. People have to find strength in themselves. And this story shows that very well. For more information, check out the author's website and Facebook page as well as the Facebook page for the series. This book is amazing and I have to say it one last time. It turned me into a blubbering mess. I'm terribly sad to say goodbye to the characters in the book. I want to go up to Rachel Vincent and say "What happens next?" But the story is beautifully resolved and I bet her next book/series (whatever it may be) will be just as amazing. I give this book a full and complete five stars!

What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America?

It's time to kick some hellion butt…

After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

But then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything she has.…
