Take 10: Myths Made Real, when the world of myth invades the real world
With All My Soul, book 7 in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, is scheduled for publication on April 1, 2013. Soul Screamers is an urban fantasy about bean sidhe (banshee) Kaylee Cavanaugh. Kaylee must balance her life as a high school student while trying to prevent the Netherworld from bleeding over into it. There are hellions, reapers and more out to steal her soul. Oh yeah, and we people are about to die, she starts screaming.
A Banshee is a woman from Irish mythology who begins to wail when someone is about to die. A banshee is considered by some to be a type of fairy or a representative of the Underworld. You can find out more about the Soul Screamers series at http://rachelvincent.com/soulscreamers.htm. Also, The Soul Screamers series has a huge following on Tumblr so check it out. If you are not reading the Soul Screamers series, you are missing a great paranormal series that has developed a complex mythology based on characters not typically seen in today’s paranormal romance; there are plenty of vampires, werewolves and angels, so I recommend that you try Soul Screamers for something new and very interesting.
