Favorite Authors Month- Rachel Vincent

Written By: Kellie - Aug• 15•11

Week three! I am love, love, loving writing these Now we’re on to the super fun Rachel Vincent. She made my favorite’s list for her Shifters series but is now thriving with her Soul Screamers series. PLUS, she’s releasing the first book in a new Urban Fantasy later this year. Blood Bound.

She’s also really active on twitter, which is a lot of fun. On one day she’ll be telling the world how many words of her next book she wrote that day, on the next she’ll be sharing the secrets of how she rewards herself for each 1000 words written. It’s fun, makes you feel like you understand her writing process and at the same time makes the wait for her next book seem a little more bearable.

The Shifters series focuses on Faythe Sanders a were cat and all the political and emotional drama that comes along with the species. Personally I loved following all the inter-pride (group of werecats) politics, but there is also decent action scenes and of course an epic love triangle which personally, I ended up on the wrong side of *sigh*.

Next up she started writing the Soul Screamers books which follow Kaylee, a teen who recently discovered that she is a banshee. Whenever someone is about to die she literally screams in order to guide their souls to the right place. Plus, a book about banshees (bean sidhes) wouldn’t be complete without an awesome cast of supporting characters, the occasional grim reaper and of course, a bit of a love triangle. Just to keep things interesting.

I’ve been a fan of Rachel’s for a long time and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she’s going to come up with next. Shifters will always be my true Rachel Vincent love but I’m hoping Blood Bound will fill the void a little =) *literary swoon*

  1. I must say I only read Stray as I didn’t really like Faythe, but I’ll be lurking to see if you can convince me to give this series another try.

      Faythe isn’t my favorite UF heroine (maybe I’m biased right now though as I’m writing my Mercy Thompson- Patricia Briggs posts today) but I love the werecat society, a lot of the guys in Faythe’s life and I don’t minnnddd Faythe. Too each their own I guess =)
