“ This is the type of story that sticks with you weeks after you’ve read it. It makes you think about life long questions that many of us have. I found myself quickly absorbed in the story line after reading just a few paragraphs!! Even though it is considered a young adult novel, people of all ages will definitely enjoy it."
Taking on the memories of others is a destructive process, one that quickly consumes the children involved until most take their own lives. As despair threatens to drown Thomas and Ashley, a distant hope keeps them from succumbing: If they can make it to their eighteenth birthday, their contract with the government will be fulfilled. Changing views on the morality of their role threatens to tear them apart, but the twins struggle to cling to each other and try to construct a fragile life above the weekly flood of horrors.
"Each chapter starts strong and ends with a cliffhanger, and I couldn't put the book down until the very end. Soul Mirrors presents a What If that left me haunted long after I read the last page. I highly recommend this book for those seeking an outstanding dystopian novel.
Haydon has redefined what I will consider being a five-star sci-fi novel."
"What if some people were able to instantly know everything about another person with a little bit of eye contact? What are the social and moral implication? What about the people who absorb other people's lives?
Wiley explores this and more in his book. He crafts a world both interesting and believable. The only real gripe with this book is that there isn't more."
