Area Info

When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies.
So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn’t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can’t cry for someone who has no soul.
The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld—a consequence they can’t possibly understand.
Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk...

Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 28

This second installment was a lot more para- and a lot less normal, which I found to be a good development. The humor was similar, but I thought a bit better. Tod is awesome in his sheepish, aloof way, and in combination with Kaylee practically unbeatable. I'd really love to see those two actually at it. x) Well, I guess I can hope for it to happen in any further installments.

I thought the new plot was interesting enough, although it was a bit less personal for Kaylee, and I'm not so sure if I like that better or not. Hm, I guess it doesn't matter that much. I hated to see that the adults were being stubborn jerks yet again, although I thought they are actually pretty cool from the first novel. Very disappointing. It was interesting to see how Kaylee managed somehow, though. I also liked that the whole warning from the parental units wasn't just for show, they actually were in really grave danger. It wasn't, like often in YA, that there is a warning issued but the hero/heroine gets somehow lucky and avoids everything, or gets away with some mere scratches. No, that was a really close call here, so points for that.

On the boy front, things are still not quite sorted out for me. I thought Tod gained many cool and cute points for trying to safe his ex, but I still felt him to be a bit too childish from time to time, and that's something that bothers me alot. Nash... kinda didn't stick out much this time, and I have to say I don't like him to be too stuck up most of the time. But he's protective, and supportive, and that gains points. Thus, I'm still not deciding on a team just yet. 😉

  2. You must read the next book immediately! Big game changer! As for this one I don't think it was my favorite but I did enjoy watching them try to save Addie even though I knew they wouldn't be able to. I found it admirable that Tod tried so hard and that Kaylee was also willing to risk so much to help someone. Nash was never a favorite of mine but he is sweet and protective at times.

  3. Ooh, I hadn't heard of this series until now, but the concept sounds pretty cool. I'll definitely be checking it out (and I love paranormal series that are more para than normal 😛 )
