Review: My Soul to Lose (Soul Screamers #0.5)
Title: My Soul to Lose (Soul Screamers #0.5)
Author: Rachel Vincent
Rating: 2/5 stars
It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed and it's the worst day of her life.
Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit.
She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again. Everyone thinks she's crazy. Everyone except Lydia, that is. Another patient with some special abilities....
I didn't think this novella was amazing by any means.
Everything was pretty vague beause they weren't trying to give away too much, which is understandable, just annoying.
For being in a psych ward it didn't really seem like much happened to her. Everyone there was either trying to kill themselves or pretty numb it seemed, until the very end. I don't even understand why she talked to another girl there in the first place. The story was from the main character's POV though and I just she was pumped up on meds so maybe that's why everything described was pretty boring.
If I had just read this by itself to start the series, I would probably quit reading, but everyone is talking about how much they love this series so I'll still give it a shot!
This story wasn't horrible, I just wasn't a fan.
