My Swoon for this week comes from:

With All My Soul
(Soul Screamers #7)

by
Rachel Vincent
First - The Blurb:


What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It's time to kick some hellion butt...

After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

But then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything she has....






Second - The Swoon:

My fingers curled around a handful of his shirt when he kissed me, and I stood on my toes to give him more of me. To taste more of him. "Mmm... I murmured when his lips trailed from my mouth over my chin, then down my neck. "I missed that."

"It's only been a few hours," he whispered, though no one else could hear us. "Shouldn't eternity make us more patient?"

"It's having the opposite effect. Knowing we should have forever makes me want a little bit of forever right now..." I pulled him back up, and my lips met his again. His hands trailed slowly up my sides, and I let the feel of him chase away the anger and sadness I'd been fighting for most of the day. For most of the past two weeks, in fact. Tod felt good. Tod always felt good, even when the rest of my world was falling apart.


Third - My Thoughts:

Well, I finally made it to the end of this series. It was quite a roller coaster ride but I'm happy that everything seemed to turn out all right for Kaylee and Tod. And her family and friends.

I will say that the last hundred or so pages messed with my emotions (some very intense moments) and kept me revirted to my seat.  I couldn't walk away until the very end. Until the very last word had been read.

Needless to say, I really enjoyed the story.

My Rating 4.5 out of 5
