Pure awesomeness.

If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5)
No one wants to be this teacher's pet…

The entire school’s talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr Beck. That is, 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. Anything.

If I Die was an extremely fun and entertaining read. I couldn't put it down no matter how hard I tried. Rachel Vincent will drag you into the world of paranormal creatures.

I must say, my opinion of the characters have changed, A LOT. I used to love Nash, but little things made me pull away, dislike him. And who was there to make everything better? TOD! Sigh, I want him. He is kind. He is caring. He is gorgeous. He is supportive. He is what I, and all girls out there, want. HEAR THAT BOYS?! You wanna girl? Read this series. Learn what you should and should NEVER EVER do! Just to help, I've made a short list!

- Have a best friend who is a girl. Who is your ex. Who you shared a passionate relationship with. Who wants to get back with you. Who is hot. You hear? Never.
- Don't inhale Demon-breath, in other words please don't do anything you'd regret later on.

Sabine, as always, was a real pain. I really couldn't bring myself to like her. She had her occasional moments of brilliance, I'll give her that, but I still didn't like her. Her personality didn't really appeal to me. Kaylee, on the other hand, is an enjoyable main character who I loved to read about.

There was scenes that had me swooning and smiling like never before! There was a special conversation in particular.....It's spoilery so I made the text white, highlight:
“Only two years dead, and it was getting harder for me to feel…anything. I was starting to slip into the darkness. The numbness. And the worst part is that it wasn’t even scary. I was losing myself, and I didn’t even care. Then I met you, and at first I didn’t understand what had happened. What had changed. All I knew was that I wanted to be near you. Then you helped me with Addison, even though it nearly got you killed—I nearly got you killed—and I started to understand how special you are. But by then, you were getting serious with Nash. With my brother—one of few people in the whole world I still gave a damn about. So I tried to stay away. I tried so hard.” His voice cracked on the last word, and my heart cracked with it. Tears stood in my eyes, but I was afraid to let them fall. I was afraid to even breathe for fear of missing a single word. "But you kept pulling me back. You’re the brightest thing I’ve ever seen, Kaylee. You’re this beautiful ball of fire spitting sparks out at the world, burning fiercely, holding back the dark by sheer will. And I always knew that if I reached out—if I tried to touch you—I’d get burned. Because you’re not mine. I’m not supposed to feel the fire. I’m not supposed to want it. But I do. I want you, Kaylee, like I’ve never wanted anything. Ever. I want the fire. I want the heat, and the light, and I want the burn.” You see what I mean? :)

The cover that is shown above is the UK cover, so don't get confused. It's pretty isn't it? I love all the UK covers, I think they look better than the US ones. Hmmm, what do you think?

Anyway, Rachel Vincent has done an amazing job creating a believable and exciting world that will have you wishing it were real. I can't wait to read Before I wake, I believe it's going to BRILLIANT!

I rate this book:
5 Falling Books!


  1. I just barely started this series and love it!! I've been captivated by Tod right from the beginning. I'm not sure which covers I prefer, I think that both sets are beautiful!! Thanks for the review!

  2. I've read the first two in this series and they were awesome!
