Synopsis:

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.

My rating: ★★★★☆

I'll pretty much read anything Megan Miranda writes. Ever since I read Hysteria, I decided that I loved her writing, and that I'd probably read anything she wrote. Soulprint just had such an interesting concept! I mean, being able to trace souls as they are reborn? How cool is that? However, the method of keeping track of all the souls, I'll admit, is quite questionable... with a lumbar puncture, you get the "fingerprint" from the spinal fluid? I don't know about that, but what I do know is how much I loved the concept! The soul is just something that has always intrigued us, and I just thought this was very cool.

I've mentioned many times before how I love stories where we have characters escaping from the government or other equally frightening/evil people, and this one was no different! After having spent her whole 17 years of life locked up for something her soul did in her previous life, Alina is finally able to escape her highly guarded island with the help of a couple unexpected people. Well, I really shouldn't say unexpected... One of the guys was awfully suspicious, and early on in the book I figured out exactly why he was so keen on helping Alina out. That plot twist, unfortunately, was not particularly surprising to me.

I really liked the characters, they were so diverse and interesting. You especially felt for Alina and all she's went through, being treated so unfairly for something that was done in her past life.

"Her soul may be mine, but my mind is my own."

The way she was treated, like a criminal, was SO frustrating! I just found myself routing for her all the way.

"Not everything comes from June, from my soul. Were are more than that--a combination of genetics and the soul and the experience of our lives. And something more, I am sure."

The romance was very sweet, too! I loved Cameron! And, well, I thought this was a really fantastic book. If you like thrillers with a little bit of sci-fi, this is definitely the read for you!
