What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It's time to kick some hellion butt...

After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

But then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything she has....

Saying good bye to this series was literally hard on me. Even when I bought the book on release day, I let it sit on my shelf for months till I was ready to say good bye. I was nervous as to what would happen to my favorite characters. Being that I have followed this series from the very beginning, even before I was a blogger, it was hard. I still remember the day I bought the first book. A store employee was putting books on the shelf’s and I said,” Excuse me, do you have any YA paranormal that isn’t vampires?” The girl chuckled and looked at her hand which  just so happen to have My Soul To Take. She said,” Here. Try this one. I read the back and it sounds pretty good.” I smiled, gave my thanks and bought the book. Hook. Line. Sinker.

Plot: I knew without a doubt that this plot would be filled with lots of tying up loose ends and a big showdown at the end.  Once I started the book it was as if I never left. Taking place in Kaylee shoes once again, the reader gets a first hand experience  in action and major decisions.

Love: Of course I love this LOVE! It’s a love that I have been rooting for. It’s consuming and breath-taking. To see what these two people have gone through and still come out on top, leaves me speechless. I adore how they shared moments of great love and sadness. But most of all, I adored how well it ended for them.

Ending. I anticipated the ending more than anything. When I was half-way through, questions began popping in my head. I wondered how in the end will they get peace. Through clever tactics and smart wording, Kaylee managed to save those she loves with a great sacrifice.

With All My Soul is gripping and successful. A creative story that promises deeper emotions and a superb ending, With All My Soul excels all prior installments. Completing the series, With All My Soul rocks!

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    Yet another series I still need to read Savy! I love Rachel Vincent, but I haven’t gotten into this series yet. Fail. I’m like you though, when it’s the last book in a series, I buy it immediately but then let it on the shelf for a while sit because I don’t want it to be over! Glad this one ended the way you wanted:):)

    I only skimmed your review. I’ve read the first and it was only okay for me. But I know from everyone loving the series so much that it probably just gets better and better so hopefully I can pick up the 2nd one soon and continue the series.

  3. I still need to read this series and you have no idea how much I really want to dive in here! 😀 So glad you enjoyed. Sometimes these ending books disappoint and so glad to see this one didn’t!

  4. I haven’t heard of this series before but after what you said, I’ll definitely have to give it a shot! I love how you asked for a paranormal with no vampires. Haha! I’m like you and don’t want to read any more vampire books for awhile. I wish I had heard about this series before. I took an ethics class last month that was supposed to be intro to ethics. It turned out to be a class completely devoted to the 7 Deadly Sins. I’m Catholic and know all about them but learning it the way we were taught in class was so interesting. So I bet I would love this series! Thanks for the great review. You have me hooked now 🙂
