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.
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.
