I love the Soul Screamers novellas. They give such great insight into the other characters. I am not a Sophie fan but I'm not supposed to be! She is vain, selfish, and totally stuck in her own bubble. But her bubble is burst in this novella! She sees a soulless reaper appear in the school hallway and screams, taking her into the netherworld with the cute new guy, Luca, she just met.
Sophie freaks out and wonders if she is going crazy like her cousin. We get to see her perspective of the netherworld. She fights through some crazy obstacles and runs into some old characters. She is very snarky and witty. I enjoyed a bunch of her lines and had a lot of laugh out loud moments. Luca was hot and interesting too. I can't wait to see what he is up to in Before I Wake. A must read for all Soul Screamers fans but make sure to read it after If I Die, or you will be spoiled.
"If the universe was finally throwing me a bone-and let's be honest, it owed me the whole damn skeleton, after the year I'd had-I wasn't going to throw it back without at least taking a good look at the offering."
"I am not sacrificing a brand-new blouse to a bunch of venom-leaking thorns." Especially if taking my shirt off meant he would put his back on.
Rating: 5/5 Stars!
