    1. ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Soulprint by Megan MirandaPublisher: Bloomsbury USA ChildrensPublication Date: February 3, 2015Rating: 4 starsSource: ARC sent by the publisherSummary (from ):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.

    2. 3-1/2 stars, rounded up. Alina Chase lives in a future where a person's soul can be identified from life to life -- reassuring news for some, but not for Alina. Her soul was a notorious criminal in its previous existence, and Alina is paying for its crimes. She's spent her entire life imprisoned on an island, cared for only by rotating strangers. On her seventeenth birthday, she's offered the chance of a lifetime -- escape. But taking that chance will test her in ways she could never have prepar [...]


    3. I'd decided to take a pass on Soulprint, or at least wait for reviews to come out. The title sounded New-Agey and the plot like sci-fi. Then I read a rave review on from Ashley of Nose Graze and decided to give this book a try for review.I'm so glad I did. Soulprint is an excellent thriller with a super-cool premise, but it's also a story with philosophical themes, well-developed characters, and a touching romance. There are sci-fi aspects, but if you're not a fan of that, the science isn't a h [...]


    4. Thankfully this book was better than its cover. I had a lot of fun reading this, the plot is very unique which I always appreciate in YA. The characters were fine. I feel kinda neutral towards them all, but I suppose that is better than an irritating heroine. The first 50% left me entranced, but unfortunately the second half of the book was a little too slow for me and my interested started to depart. Overall this is a decent read with a cool plot, the second half left something to be desired bu [...]


    5. 4.5 StarsWoah! I was surprised by how much I loved this book! I hoped to like it but didn't think I'd end up giving it 4.5 stars.It totally hooked me to the point where I COULDN'T STOP READING! I read the whole thing in one sitting. I felt like there was always something happening, always a trail to follow, always a mystery to solve. I couldn't even stop to take a breath, it was just ACTION THRILLER MYSTERY ROMANCE.I also loved how the book was built on hacking and technology. There's barely any [...]


    6. *I received a free ARC of Soulprint from Bloomsbury USA Chidlren's via Netgalley in exchange of an honest and unbiased review*Soulprint is a riveting story set in the future, where re-incarnations are proven and some characters actually get judged by their past lives.This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog(un)Conventional Bookviews


    7. This review was originally posted on The Moonlight Library SUMMARY Alina Chase has been contained her whole life on a private island – cared for, but not cared about. Because she has inherited the soul of a notorious teen criminal, June Calahan. And the world fears June has left instructions for Alina to continue what she started – throwing the world into chaos. WORLDBUILDING Wowser! The worldbuilding in this was so subtle and intense. Souls are an actual thing, and soulprints – like finge [...]


    8. 3.5 I'm so torn about this one! I really enjoyed some aspects, but I felt (overall) the book was really really slooooow. I just wanted to move on! CUT TO THE CHASE. (Um, hum, yes, that is an incredible lame pun since the narrator's name is Alina Chase, but there is nothing as beautiful as a lame pun, yes?) It's a really fascinating premise.cally reincarnation with a sci-fi twist. No soul ever "dies". You just get reborn into someone newwhich means you have a string of lives. These lives are docu [...]


    9. Soulprint(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Bloomsbury Publishing Plc (UK & ANZ) and NetGalley.)This was an okay sci-fi story, but it dragged.I felt quite sorry for Alina and her parents. It was awful the way the government took away her freedom and family because of something that she had no control over. It must have been awful for her parents to realise that their daughter would never know freedom or a normal life.The storyline in [...]


    10. The premise of Soulprint is, while not altogether unexplored, a fascinating one. It explores reincarnation, in a world where science has proven that it is, without a doubt, the way our souls work.How much of who we are is based on the soul, and how much is based on how we’re raised? It’s the ever-present question of nature over nurture.There were certain elements of this story which were really well done, with some aspects of the world-building appearing really well thought out.But then ther [...]


    11. 4.5 starsMegan Miranda won me over as a reader with Fracture so when I saw Soulprint up on Netgalley I requested it before even reading the summary. I have to admit… didn’t make a difference because when I read the summary, I just wanted to read it that much more. Miranda combines a great story with the idea that souls don’t die when someone passes on, they actually migrate to a new personInteresting, right??Alina has been held prisoner for 17 years on a remote island because the governmen [...]


    12. This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdI received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review THOUGHTSI have an odd fascination with past lives and reincarnation. I don't know. I just like the idea that this life is not your only life. This book takes place in a society where there are records of a person's past lives. But the society has discovered that those who were criminals in a past life are more likely to become criminals in this one. So, when cr [...]


    13. Soulprint took me by surprise in the best possible way - the beginning was slightly difficult to get into, but once I got into the story I found myself struggling to put it down.Megan Miranda's Soulprint is set in a futuristic America where the technology for soul-printing has become possible. Soulprint allows you to be tested to see whom your soul belonged to in previous lives, and might just be one of the century's most prized discoveries as there is a clear correlation between .Alina, our pro [...]


    14. Soulprint osui ja upposi. Kun kemiat kohtaavat niin oi sitä lukemisen autuutta! Megan Mirandan kirjoissa on se jokin joka vain kolahtaa minuun niin lujaa, etten voi olla rakastamatta lukemaani.Mirandan kirjoitus ja kerronta on sellaista mistä nautin aivan suunnattomasti. Se on kiireetöntä, vakaata, pohdiskelevaa ja sukeltaa syvälle hahmojen persoonallisuuteen tehden heistä monisävyisiä ja aivan äärimmäisen mielenkiintoisia. Aivan kuten Fracturessa, tässäkin kirjassa hahmot tekivät [...]


    15. **Slightly Spoiler-ish**”Maybe there will be a consequence for my choices in the next life. But right now, this is the only one that matters.”Soulprint by Megan Miranda felt new. Innovative and invigorating. A story that sparked and inspired my imagination with questions and ideas. I love when a book does that! Seventeen year old Alina Chase has been confined her attire life for her own protection—so she is told. Protected from people that want revenge for her past life. Revenge for what h [...]


    16. idek what rating to give this. it made so little impression on me it could be anywhere from 1-3. it was ok but the twists were way predictable to me and the concept, which sounds so cool, was really badly delivered imothe plot is basically that souls are transferred from one life to the next when you die (this is scientifically proven somehow and has been common knowledge for at least 3 generations). this girl, june, found a study that proved that souls that are criminals in one life are almost [...]


    17. Set in a time where anything is possible, Soulprint explores that possibility of past lives and souls that never die, that never truly go away but instead, regenerate after death into someone new. Someone who can be punished for mistakes you may have made.Always being fascinated with the possibility of reincarnation, it was no wonder the synopsis for Soulprint appealed to me. The what ifs of it all were too appealing to ignore and so, I picked this up already being familiar with Miranda's work a [...]


    18. I’d like to thank NetGalley and Bloomsbury Publishing Plc for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.This had a really promising premise: soulprinting. In the same way that fingerprints are unique, so are souls. This means a soul can be traced from reincarnation to reincarnation, and that consequences of previous lives end up spilling into the present one. This is what happens to Alina. Because she had the misfortune of hosting June’s soul and because June was conside [...]


    19. This was a pretty clever premise and it was executed fairly well. I liked the non-stop action and the general feeling of uncertainty about the situation really came across in the writing. Alina, Cameron, and Casey are all interesting. The way their back stories are revealed is a sort of slow, delicious torture. The only downside was the passages of long science-y stuff. I hated biology and genetics when I had to take it in school and I still hate it. I ended up skimming those sections. All in al [...]



    20. Before reading this book I was very intrigued by the plot of this book. But to me it fell a bit flat. I enjoyed reading the book but it didn't seem memorable to me. I guess that I expected more. I wanted to learn more about the different lives of the souls, have more context. What do they remember from past lives? How does it affect them? I expected flashbacks, deep inner conversations from the soul, recognizing other soulsSome aspects were just a bit too predictable and I was left wondering why [...]


    21. 4.5 stars because I loved the concept so much. :-) My review can also be found HERE‘Most souls are free of their pasts. Of their crimes and transgressions, their love and hate. Because a soul has no memory, and that’s a scientific fact.Still, most people agree it’s better not to find out who you once were. And if you do find out, it’s best to keep that knowledge to yourself. Because while the soul has no memory, the world does, and that is usually enough.’ Loc 70Thank you to Netgalley [...]


    22. divabooknerd/2015/01/sSoulprint lured me in from the first chapter, in an unexpected and engaging storyline that kept me enthralled. It follows the story of Alina, a girl who inherited the soul of June, a traitor to her country for hacking the database of a soul registry where infants were tested to scientifically determine their past life. Her life has been plagued by media speculation, that if she were ever freed, Alina would continue the work of June. With one former escape that nearly ended [...]


    23. While Soulprint brings up some interesting questions – how are we shaped by our pasts? how are we shaped by our environments? – I was ultimately not thrilled by its execution.In the world of the novel, here are the things you need to believe for this book to make sense to you: that there are souls, one; that souls are reincarnated (and are immediately reincarnated upon dying, but only travel short distances because reasons), two; and that there’s a study that claims a high level of corresp [...]


    24. (I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.)Soulprint dragged too much for me. I felt sorry for Alina. Being imprisoned and having your freedom taken away from you for something that you had no control over is awful. I felt sorry for her parents too. They knew what sort of life she would have, and they tried their best to stop it from happening. It must have been horrible for them knowing they hadn't saved her. The pacing in this was really really slow, and i was bored b [...]


    25. A bit slow for the first half or so, but interesting enough that I really needed to know what was happening and really great in the end.Review to come


    26. Well, well, wasn't this the pleasant surprise! I honestly didn't know what to think of this going in, and figured it was going to go one of two ways: Unbelievable and silly, or thought provoking and exciting. And thankfully, it was the latter.The thing that made it really work for me is that no one completely understood how the soul worked. I liked that they admitted that, because I think anything else would have been really hard to believe. In Soulprint's world, souls move on to another body af [...]


    27. Alina Chase is imprisoned on an island for something she didn’t do. She is locked away for something her previous self in a past life did. But not everyone wants Alina locked away. A group is coming to break her out, but she doesn’t know what they want from her. Or from June, the girl she was in her past life. And what if she can’t help them?I had wanted to read Soulprint right away. I really enjoyed Megan Miranda’s first book Fracture and she is quickly becoming a seasoned author who wr [...]


    28. Megan Miranda writes great YA thrillers, so I was excited when I received this book from Bloomsbury Australia. Thanks Bloomsbury! :)Alina Chase is seventeen and has spent most of her life hidden away from the world. She lives on an island, separated from the rest of the population for her own safety. Every facet of her life is controlled and she's constantly watched. See, she lives in a world where the soul is reborn after death. And she happens to have the soul of a criminal. June Calahan was a [...]


    29. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs** 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 corrupt [...]
