Banshee Giveaway - "My Soul to Save" by Rachel Vincent

I have a great giveaway for you today to celebrate the launch earlier this month of  My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent, the second book in her urban fantasy Soul Screamers series. There are three (3) copies of My Soul to Save up for grabs and you can find the giveaway guidelines at the end of the post.

This terrific young adult series began with My Soul to Take in August 2009 as the launching title for Harlequin Teen's new young adult imprint. You can read more about the new imprint in the guest post from Harlequin Teen editor Natashya Wilson. You can also read the guest post Rachel did here at SciFiGuy.ca last year about the series called "Why YA and bean sidhes?"

Soul Screamers
The last thing you hear before you die.

You can read an excerpt of My Soul to Save here
Bookcover Copy:
When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies.

So when teen pop star Eden croaks on stage and Kaylee doesn’t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can’t cry for someone who has no soul.

The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls for a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld—a consequence they can’t possibly understand.

Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk.
Trailer for My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers Book 2)

  1. I haven't read Rachel Vincent's YA yet, so I can say right now my favorite YA book is Strange Angels, followed by Betrayals.

    I am looking forward to reading My Soul to Take (which I have) and hoping to read My Soul to Save (hoping to win). I love Rachel Vincent's adult series (shifters).

  49. I read so many books that they are all my favorite in their own way. But if I had to choose it would be Vampire Daires series/ Night world series.
    I have read My Soul to Save which is one my favorite b/c it is totally different from any book I have read and I hoping to win the Second b/c I'm anxious to read if it so good like the frist that I loved.
