A new literary, sci-fi thriller from acclaimed author Megan Miranda.

With the science of soul-fingerprinting a reality, Alina Chase has spent her entire life imprisoned for the crimes her past-self committed. In an attempt to clear her name, Alina unintentionally trades one prison for another when she escapes, aided by a group of teens whose intentions and motivations are a mystery to her. As she gets to know one of the boys, sparks fly, and Alina believes she may finally be able to trust someone. But when she uncovers clues left behind from her past life that only she can decipher, secrets begin to unravel. Alina must figure out whether she’s more than the soul she inherited, or if she’s fated to repeat the past.

This compelling story will leave readers wondering if this fictional world could become a reality.

YA ReviewMy Thoughts

Soulprint is one crazy ride. The idea pulled me in right from the beginning. The idea that souls can live on in multiple live is nothing new. Reincarnation has been around for a long while, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this book is something overdone. Megan Miranda took this idea and ran so far with it that you will hardly recognize it. I love the blend of suspense, action/chase, science, and the layers of corruption that she wove into the story of Soulprint. It is one excellent ride!

The biggest mystery to me is why it took me so long to read and finish Soulprint. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish but for whatever reason it took me way longer to read than most books. That is still a mystery to me because I didn’t put the book down because I was bored. This book had me thinking and pondering the whole time, which was more than enough to keep me engaged and interested in the storyline. I was fascinated by the clues that June left Alina. Was she good? Was she bad? Just what the heck had she done that made them lock Alina down like they did.

I loved how unique and different this book felt. It had kind of an inception feel to it, even though it was really nothing like inception. It was part political thriller, part sci-fi dystopian, and a whole lot of interesting. I thought the characters and the plot were extremely well done. The romance was nice, but not the predominant theme of the book. It was just kind of there pleasantly swirling around in the background of this awesomely cool and intense chase that Aline, Cameron, Dominic and Casey were on.

Soulprint didn’t specifically state that it was going to be the first book in a series, but it was strongly implied. I, for one, really want there to be a sequel. I can’t wait to see if Aline will finally find her mother, or if it will be someone else entirely. Plus, there is the whole issue with Dominic. I think there is so much more about him that we have yet to learn. Bring it on! Bring it all on, Megan Miranda! I want more of the world you built in Soulprint.

    You liked this more than I did but I did like it. Glad this was such a great read for you! It really did have an interesting concept.

  2. Shannon Mizikoski

    I agree, I really enjoyed this one! I found it to be really refreshing, and I loved the characters, and the plot in general. I DO think there is room for a sequel, so I really hope you are right, I would certainly be reading it! Great review 🙂

    I have this one sitting on my shelf but I haven’t gotten the chance to read it yet. I hope that I can read it soon but I’m honestly not sure. It’s sounds absolutely amazing though! Don’t worry about it taking longer though, that always happens to me. When I was reading Shadow Study, I enjoyed it so much but it still took me AGES to finish. Lovely review Michelle!

  4. Heather Wood

    I loved this book! And I agree, I really hope it will be a series since the ending definitely left room for more books. Great review!

    Thanks so much for the review. It’s rare, but there are some books I really need to read slowly, which is the opposite of my favorite way to read (at the speed of light). Maybe I should slow down more, because I think sometimes the slow reads are the ones I appreciate the most.

    Great review! You had me sold on reincarnation lives, I absolutely love reading books with characters that are reincarnated. It is one of my favorites sets in books too read. Plus I’ve been dying too read a book by Megan Miranda for a long time now, because I heard just amazing things about her books. And this one looks and sounds totally fantastic and right up my alley! Thank you so much for the awesome post.
