Soul Mirrors is set in a world where some children are born special. Their eyes are unlike anything anyone has ever seen, and because of this, these children are able to "reflect" memories of others back to them. An interesting concept, no?
Twins Thomas and Ashley are even more rare, mostly because two Mirrors born to the same family is pretty much unheard of. And because they have this unique ability, the government immediately plans to squirrel them away once their powers fully manifest, only to use them as "tools of the trade," if you will. However, the horrors they're forced to endure come with a very heavy price.
I don't want to spoil anything about this book, because you just need to read it. Trust me. For a debut novel, I was certainly blown away by how awesome and unique it was.
The characters are relatable, no matter your age. You'll find someone you can connect with, whether it's the twins, their parents, or someone else, and knowing that makes the book so much more enjoyable. I always like having well-written characters who are flawed and fleshed out. Plus, you can't have a story where there are no unlikable characters, and you will find a few of them scattered throughout the book here, too.
Plot-wise, the story will definitely play with your emotions. I felt myself becoming so angry at certain parts of the book that I wanted to stop reading. I also found myself tearing up so badly that I did have to stop and compose myself before continuing the story. There was also a scene that triggered a plethora of negative memories, and I had to set the book down and take some deep breaths to calm myself down. It sort of hit home for me, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.
And that ending... whew! That's all I'm going to say.
Overall, I found Soul Mirrors to be an interesting and unique story that had me hooked from the very first page. I love stories that draw out a variety of emotions, too, and this one did just that. I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for more stories from the author, that's for sure.
If you like young adult books that have science fiction and dystopian elements, complete with a concept that is so different from anything else (at least from what I've read in the genre), give Soul Mirrors a whirl. I'd highly recommend it.
Five very well-deserved stars.
I received a copy of this book and volunteered to review it. All opinions are my own and not affected by a 3rd Party
I think, though, they're both right.
It killed me how clinically cold the story is on the fact that in the history of Mirrors in the Justice System...100% kill themselves. I was so hopeful that the built in support system the twins had would prove this theory wrong. You'll have to read to see how they did, in their own unique way.
Don't read this without tissues at hand. I experienced almost every emotion on this rollercoaster of a book. High joys followed by crashing lows of sorrow..... the author has mastered playing the heartstrings of the reader like Yo-Yo Ma plays the cello.
