Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent is one of my favorite series ever. Although this series is Young Adult I can recommend it to everyone. Kaylee, Tod, Nash are intriguing to read about. What I love most about this series is that Soul Screamers does not follow your standard HEA format. This isn’t your standard boy-meets-girl series with some paranormal elements thrown in. There is incredible character growth that book 1 I was Team Nash and by books 4 and 5 I was Team Tod. The journey that Kaylee, Tod and Nash experience pulls you in and you find yourself along for the ride. I cannot stress how emotional these books are. I laugh, I cried, and I found myself lost in the world that Rachel Vincent created. These books and these characters are so well written, imaginative, and full of heart. I rate this series 5.5 stars*
