Summary/ product description:
“The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. 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.
My Rating: ê ê ê ê
When I read the title I immediately thought it was the last book in the series. It’s not. And that’s all I’m going to tell you. I won’t tell you weather Kaylee dies or not.
And if you haven’t read the first 4 books, read them or this won’t make much sense to you.
In this book Kaylee finds out when she’s supposed to die, so she does her version of living like she’s dying by trying to save people. Also Tod plays a bigger role later on…
My favorite character is still Tod. I love his humor and personality way better than Nash. He’s really starting to grow on Kaylee like he’s been growing on me. I’ve been Team Tod all the way! I really hope to see even more of him in the future.
I’m not sure how to review a 5th book in a series, but I think that each book has had a great continuation. This series seems more episodic that planned. I wonder is Rachel knew what she wanted to happen in book five when she wrote the 1st or 2nd one. I think that she didn’t because the incubus is new. Now we’re finding out more about the Netherworld and it’s creatures. I never even heard of a Syphon before read this!
This series is really worth reading! I recommend it completely! It’s fun, fresh, and sometime scary.
Cover Art Review: Both this cover and the cover of My Soul to Steal are beautifully done. The first three books had boring cover in comparison. I like having both a guy and girl on the cover. It looks like they’re dancing. The title is different than the 1st 4 books, and it’s white only. I like the green dress, but don’t like the shoulder part of it so much. The guy looks like maybe he’s trying to keep the girl from being suck away. Is it Nash and Kaylee, or Tod and Kaylee?
