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.

Prepare for Emotional Torture
Yes, I loved the other three books, but the first half of this one is a heavy dose of emotional torture. The angst, jealousy, and fear is palpable and painful. I was ready to give up this series. Nash's xgirlfriend is a nightmare, literally, and I could have dealt with that if he wasn't such a royal pain in the butt as well. Even Todd is spouting crap disguised as wisdom. In the second half, the author lets us in on her clever little twist involving the Hellion of Envy, but by that time I almost didn't care anymore if Kaylee kept Nash or gave him up to Sabine and since that issue was never really resolved we have to wait for the next book.

My Soul to Steal
I've really enjoyed this series so far. This one is, however, my least favorite. Kaylee absolutely drove me crazy throughout nearly the whole thing. She wants Nash back and wants to give him her trust again but refuses to give him the chance to earn it. She's understandably hurt and feels betrayed, but she also understands that the things Nash did, and let happen to her, happened because he wasn't himself at the time. If she truly wanted him back, you'd think she would want to be there for him and help him through the healing process and give him a chance to prove his sincerity. I wouldn't have blamed Nash in the least if he had dropped Kaylee like hot potato for Sabine, who is supportive and non-judgmental in his time of need, rather than Kaylee who, at every turn, is pointing out his faults and reminding him of how badly he screwed up.
Yes, Sabine is a creepy character. But deep down, she's insecure and hurting. Because of who she is, she has a difficult time making friends. Nash is the only one who has ever given her a chance and loved her despite what she is. I really can't blame her for trying to get him back. Because of what she is, she has to try so hard for every nugget of friendship and love she gets.
Tod and Harmony remain my favorite characters. I love Tod's no nonsense, no sugar-coating way of approaching things and Harmony's way of treating everyone with the same love, respect and acceptance as everyone else no matter what they were born as.
All in all, this book continues the story nicely and I'm looking forward to October to find out what happens next and who ends up with who.
