Review - Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent

Before I Wake (Soul Screamers, #6)


This is the second-to-last book in Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series, and after the ending to the last one, I had to buy this right away! (warning: contains inevitable spoilers for the earlier books in the series!) Kaylee is struggling to adjust to living in the human world whilst no longer being really alive, and her new job reclaiming souls is complicated when Avari, the demon of greed with a grudge, starts stealing souls again. She has her new relationship with reaper Tod, but feels guilty about what happened with Nash, who still hasn’t forgiven her for unintentionally getting him framed for her murder. But now Hell literally is breaking loose, all the group have are each other…

Again, I was completely hooked from start to finish. The characters are as complex and believable as ever, and fans of Tod will be pleased that we get to see a lot more of his and Kaylee’s new relationship. Kaylee’s biggest struggle is to find a reason to maintain a human life despite no longer being alive. Although the plot is perhaps a fraction less intense than If I Die, the shocking finale prepares us for what I can tell will be a rollercoaster of a final book! 

Rating: *****
