Synopsis: Alina Chase has been contained on an island for the last 17 years—whether that’s for the crimes of her past life, or for her own protection, well, that depends on whom you ask. With soul-fingerprinting a reality, science can now screen for the soul, and everyone knows that Alina’s soul had once belonged to notorious criminal, June Calahan, though that information is supposed to be private. June had accomplished the impossible: hacking into the soul-database, ruining countless lives in the process.
Now, there are whispers that June has left something behind for her next life—something that would allow Alina to access the information in the soul-database again. A way to finish the crimes she started.
Aided by three people with their own secret motivations, Alina escapes, only to discover that she may have just traded one prison for another. And there are clues. Clues only Alina can see and decipher, clues that make it apparent that June is leading her to something. While everyone believes Alina is trying to continue in June’s footsteps, Alina believes June is trying to show her something more. Something bigger. Something that gets at the heart of who they all are—about the past and the present. Something about the nature of their souls.
Alina doesn’t know who to trust, or what June intends for her to know, and the closer she gets to the answers, the more she wonders who June was, who she is, whether she’s destined to repeat the past, whether there are truths best kept hidden—and what one life is really worth.
My Thoughts: I received this book early through NetGalley.
I loved this book. It was so good and it flowed so well. There were no parts in the story where things were moving slow. Something was always happening. I liked the idea that someones soul just keeps getting reborn and you can somehow have a part of that persons thoughts in your mind like Alina and June. I loved Casey and Cameron’s characters, however, I was not a fan of Dominic. I thought he was a psychopathic jerk and half the time I wanted to slap him. I liked the way that the clues just kind of showed themselves to Alina and they were able to get to exactly what it was they needed at that time. I was happy with the way that this story ended and that things kind of wrapped up but I feel like it was left open enough so that there could be a second book in the future. I am really happy that I was able to read this early and I can’t wait for everyone else to get to read it and love it like I do! I also can’t wait to buy the actual copy and add it to my book collection!
