The Mirror Souls
Like the rest of the Gaian race, Alana’s life is ruled by the Avalon, the superior race who once created Earth and returned to reclaim it after humanity brought it to the brink of destruction. Because of the Avalon, every Gaian faces the risk of being moved from Region to Region, over and over, with no warning. Alana has no pl
This was my first sci-fi read in a long time and it didn’t disappoint. Scott’s attention to detail is wonderful—it feels as though you’re in Alana’s shoes as she battles through one hardship after the next... constantly keeping you on your toes!
This book has a unique plot, great world building and well thought out, relatable characters. I was very impressed with this storyline and the direction the series is headed in!
I’m also intrigued by the romance concept here! Mirror Souls is ...more
Set up in the dystopian future world, this story captured my attention from the beginning!
I absolutely loved the world building.
The characters were so flawlessly sketched that you could relate to each and every one of them even though the POV was Alana's.
An Alien race called Avalons have taken over the earth to restore the damage done by Gaians(former earth natives). But it's not jus ...more
MIRROR SOULS was a non-stop race for the poor MC who never got a chance to take a breath! The author offers a new take on the concept of 'soulmates' amidst bigger issues. I kinda hate the whole soulmate silliness, but this one presents it in such a way that makes it lovely and new. Despite being MIRROR SOULS, I liked that they weren't completely mushy, that Alana and Aiden fought and kept boundaries and were mindful of their newness while wanting to explore exact ...more
Objectively, I thought the author did really well weaving the main storyline and the subplots together, and the mysteries were unveiled at a rate that kept me interested from start to finish. I was able to predict some of the twists, but some really surprised me. There were a few errors in the text and formatting, and at times the narrative felt a little choppy due to word choice or minor continuity issues, but they were few enough that the book felt polished over ...more
This book was a pure joy to read! I pretty much inhaled it in a 48 hour period (which says a lot seeing as I have a 3 year old who barely leaves me alone for two seconds lol). Alana is a character you route for. She is blunt and strong but also vulnerable and real. She's not just a cookie cutter character who goes through the motions but a character who manages to cling to who she is despite all that she's thrown into and discovers throughout the book. I loved that there was more ...more
The Mirror Souls is a story steeped in the best kind of unknown. Alana wants to live a different kind of life but when the possibility is presented, nothing is as it seems. There are so many twists and turns in this story, you have no choice but to hang on and enjoy the exhilarating ride. The build up is perfect because you see everything from Alana’s point of view. She knows what you know and when the answers are revealed, you don’t see them coming. So excited for Alana’s story to con ...more
The only problem was how it ends. Julia, how did you do that to me? I will definitely read the second.
Excellent from plot twists to subplots and overall storyline making this a page turner from beginning to end. Kudos to the author as this is one of the most original stories I’ve read, hence a must read not only for dystopian lovers. I’m fangirling, I know :)
The story centers on Alana and her Mirror Soul, Aiden. In their world, Mirror Souls are considered a threat to society because when together, they create an energy that can affect and alter what is called the Processing - a medical procedure meant to alter a person's personality and mindset.
I absolutely loved the chemistry between the two protagonists and what it could cause, ...more
This fabulous book kept me fully entertained during a time when escapism is all too important. I would highly recommend this one!
But when Alana finds a little silver device in her pocket, which she wasn't suppose to have, translocates her to another country. There she finds, even if she doesn't know it herself yet, meets her Mirror Soul. From then on a high pace story ...more
The story almost immediately starts with an incident that leaves you to wonder where things will go, and from there on, it picks up steadily. While it's not the typical fast-paced edge-of-your-seat kind of read, Julia ...more
Alana Cain is a free spirit who discovers that her seemingly dull life is fraught with lies, not the least of which is that she is one half of a Mirror Soul pairing.
The Mirror Souls is the opening salvo of a series that bristles with imagination and characters that may ...more
