My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent and The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong

Summary: The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls for 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....


Review: Gosh I love Tod so much more after reading this book. He is such a great character, and I'm so happy that you got to see more about the reapers in this installment. The image you get of Netherworld was amazing, and I really want to explore more of it. The only real downside of this book was that I felt bad for Emma. She knows some stuff about Kaylee already so I have to wonder why they keep her in the dark. It seems to just be hurting their friendship. :/
Summary:

If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I'm as far away from normal as it gets. A living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. What does that mean? For starters, I'm a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control; I raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever.

Now I'm running for my life with three of my supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and we have to find someone who can help us before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

Review: Ummm wow? Yeah wow sounds pretty good. I'm so glad I picked up this series. The story was just as good (if not better) than the first and the characters were just as amazing. I'm really curious about who Chloe will end up with. She seems to have all of these tender moments with both guys it is kinda hard to decide who I want her to end up with. I really hope that in The Reckoning you find out more about the pendants. Leaving it at "they help protect against ghosts" isn't going tocut it as it is the focus of the covers.

Both books get a solid 5/5. I really recommend these books to anyone who enjoys reading paranormal stories.
