There are people out there who don't die with their bodies. Their souls live on in the bodies of others. Some good, some bad-they are soul jumpers. Nothing in Iris Brave's world make sense anymore. Her father, Micah, is still alive-his soul survives in the body of a teenage boy. It is up to Iris and a group of soul jumpers called the Sixteen to save Micah. To do so Iris must take on the unscrupulous leaders of the Council. Can she save her father? Will she survive? (Goodreads)
I reviewed the first book in this series, IRIS BRAVE, here!
The first book in this series really captured my attention, especially with the really interesting way it ended, so I was really happy to get to read the second book. It was a fast read, with all kinds of twists and turns that kept me guessing. Iris is a really sweet character and I enjoyed the insight into her world and perspective on things. I do think that this works better for older readers--particularly with some happenings toward the end of the book--and I often found myself imagining Iris as at least a teen, as opposed to a tween, but it wasn't enough to distract from the book. The author's created a really unique and interesting take on things, particularly with the Council and their methods, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Iris's story!
Anyone had a chance to read these? Ever come across a book where you find yourself imagining the character as older than what's written?
