I died on a Thursday-killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul. The good news? He didn't get it. The bad news? Turns out not even death will get you out of high school... Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering," she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed. Her immortal status won't keep her safe. And this time Kaylee isn't just gambling with her own life..
WOW! I didn´t think it was possible anymore, but Rachel Vincent gets better with every book and she started with great but now, it´s perfect. She always surprises me and amazes me. "Before I wake" is the best one in the series and I think that the finale, "With all my soul", will be even more fantastic. The storyline is perfect. I was bitting my nails through the whole book and the ending left me speachless. Kaylee grows into herself more, eventhough she doubts herself and hasn´t quite yet grasped the consequences of being undead, she is still the wonderful character we all love. Her relationship with Tod grows stronger and their love story just makes me warm. All of their conversations melted me into a puddle on the floor, especially everything that comes out of Tod´s mouth. Now, maybe I never truly liked Nash as Kaylee´s boyfriend, I still hurt for him. I understand how he feels and I sincerely hope that he would finally let go of Kaylee and fully embrace his love for Sabine who is still the same sarcastic and great self. I cried during the book and everyone who loves the series will too. It is breathtaking, sad and filled with love, regret and blood. Lots of blood. And death. I savored every page and I never want this series to end because every character has become like family to me.
