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.
Made me laugh! Can you say cat fight over a guy?!
I'm glad I don't have an ex who has an ex who is a living nighmare! That would freak me out if she used her powers on me. I'd probably have to drop kick her is she did that. Kaylee? No so much. She goes and tells Nash to tell Sabine (the nightmare) to stop her craziness. Maybe it's just me but that is not really standing up for oneself. Kaylee, herself should have been the one to go and talk to the nightmare...err I mean Sabine and to quit because she wasn't going to just hand over Nash on a silver platter to the nightmare. Kaylee was just no on her game, for me, in My Soul to Steal. A mixture of the inability to stand up to the nightmare plus pretty much everything else that happens just didn't make me all that happy or excited about this one.
One thing that did spark an interest was Tod's intense belief that Nash and Kaylee are not meant to be. That she should give him up completely. Hmmm...something is brewing with Tod!
