She doesn't see dead people. She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally. 
Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.
Taschima's POV:

I started this series because well everybody seem to fricking love it. I figured I should give it a shot.

I started with doubts because  I didn't seem to get what would be interesting about a banshee, who's only power was to scream. Seriously. But I read it and while I didn't fall madly in love with it I can say that I picked up the second book right after, already finished it, and am in the process of reading the third. Holy cow. So yeah, it's addicting.

Kaylee, the main girl, is a pistol. She is strong and speaks her mind since the first few pages. She is my kind of girl. Nash is the main luve character. He is the athletic super star who seems to be inexplicably attracted to Kaylee. There's a good reason, don't worry. Also there is Tod, the dark reaper who doesn't give a shit about basically anything. Or so he makes you think. I liked Tod a lot in this book, he is just so much fun. The relationship between Tod and Nash is a... special kind of relationship. You'll see by the end of this book and I will discuss it further when I review My Soul to Save.

Overall I am still not impressed with the whole Banshee character thing. She screams!! Woohoo? I can't get over it still, but I do enjoy the adventure, the characters, and the overall plot. Plus the conversations between characters, specially when Tod is involved, are hilarious. Some people say the story gets even better after the third book, and I'm about to read that one right now. Maybe Kaylee will develop an awesome ability out of the fricking blue. Or she can leave Nash and go to Tod like any rational woman would... One can only hope.

  1. These are some of the best books I've ever read! I love them! Her screaming is weird, but it does get better/different. Hang in there. Check out the short stories that go along with the series as well.

  2. I feel the same way about the premise, but you make them sound good. Maybe I will give them a shot. :)

  3. While this series started off slow for me, it did eventually pick up. Team Tod!

  4. :dances: I'm so glad you find it as addicting! I admit the whole banshee thing is fascinating to me mainly because I grew up on those stories from my granny--and it DOES prove to be a power worth reckoning with.

    Tod still remains mine lalalala

  5. hhahhaahah sorry, Thinking about Ted.He was also the character that held my interest through the book.No I didnt LOVE the book.But I already have #2 on hold and am looking forward to it. Wonderful review

  6. your last sentence ...from someone who has read the series... all i can say is XD (smug laughter in the background)

  7. I want her to be with Tod too!! :P
    AND BOOK 3 is AMAZING!!!!

    Krazyyme @ Young Readers

  8. I also preferred Tod over Nash. Nash is nice and all but Tod is far more interesting.

  9. I remember you posting about not knowing if you would read this one or not. I'm happy that you decided to give it a shot after all!

    Thanks for the great review, you have inspired me to try to read this one soon!

  10. Haha! I tend to fall for the goody-two-shoes nice guy as well and I'm totally Team Stefan in The Vampire Diaries) but I jut might like Todd when I eventually get down to reading this series. Great review!
