Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.


I’m going to say it, how much fun is it hating Sabine? Oh she truly needed several ‘stinky dead fish’ slaps from me, but this is a good thing. How much did you ‘feel’ her manipulative ways in this book? Like REALLY FEEL how much you disliked her!

 I think I spent half this book upset with Nash and his close friendship with Sabine and half the book upset that Nash and Kaylee weren’t together. It made for a great read. I was like torn the whole time. The emotion you feel when reading this book makes the reader really feel a part of this book.

What Nash did to Kaylee in ‘My Soul To Keep’, was bad and quite inexcusable, but then awwwwww I found myself wanting to be there for Nash in this book. I just needed to boot Sabine out the way. Rachel has written Sabine very well!! Everytime Nash called her Bina I was feeling like Kaylee and Nash had no hope left.

Oh be still my heart from breaking when Sabine pointed out how Nash kept all her memories and sold only Kaylee’s...... this had me wondering about Nash......

 Rachel again, writes the Netherworld very well in this book and Avari is really having some fun. Well not fun at the expense of teachers, but he keeps weedling his way into the human world using whatever loop hole he can find, he really is on a mission to get Kaylee. He has major OCD with Kaylee. (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

 I really like Alec, he is a great character who is still on the bad end of the stick, poor lovey. I want to know more about him. Get him a chicky babe.

Tod! Now if he doesn’t have some sort of uber crush on Kaylee, well then I am not reading this book very well. Tod is all protective and I am trying to decide if his helpfulness is to push Kaylee away from Nash for his benefit or because he knows Nash and what he is capable of, even though he has a rather complicated, to say the least relationship with Addy.

 Rachel, you have my brain juggling all these Nash and Tod scenarios.

 Kaylee and Nash’s relationship is it based on love the kind that will last the length of their long lives or is it two people that through their connection feel as though they should be together? There are big obstacles that Nash has to overcome to be trusted again and Sabine is a thorn in my side and Kaylee’s. How brash is Sabine? She just shows the boobies off and throws herself at Nash.

 I am torn between wanting to tell Nash off for being an idiot with Kaylee and telling him off for being an idiot with Sabine and telling Sabine off for just being an idiot with both of them.

If this book doesn’t light a fire in your belly then you are emotionless.

 This series is really getting fired up, I hope Rachel has kept it stoked for ‘If I Die’?

Doesn’t that title make you think?



  1. Following your blog is not helping my to-read list... this sounds good! As always :S

  2. Hi Braine,
