Megan Miranda has previously published three novels with Bloomsbury: Fracture, Hysteria, and Vengeance. A biology major from MIT, she is constantly thinking about the “how” and “why” of things, leading her to imagine the “what ifs.” These scenarios make up the basis of Soulprint—an edge-of-your-seat sci-fi thriller with a new world romance that’ll make you swoon.

Book Title: Soulprint

Seventeen-year-old Alina Chase has spent her entire life imprisoned on a secluded island—not for a crime she committed in this lifetime, but one done by her past self. Her very soul is like a fingerprint, carried from one life to the next—and Alina is sick of being guilty.

In Megan Miranda’s riveting new sci-fi novel, Soulprint, all Alina wants to do is escape from her containment. But her soul is deemed too dangerous to be free. When a chance to escape comes on the evening of her seventeenth birthday, aid comes in the form of three intelligent teenagers with very different agendas. The only thing they have in common is that they need Alina’s mind to get what they want.

In her past life, Alina was the famous June Calahan—the teenager who was able to accomplish the impossible: hacking into the soul-database, ruining many lives in the process. It is believed that June left behind clues as to why she did what she did and how to access the database again. Having access to the soul-database is unimaginable power, and these three mysterious allies want in just as much as Alina wants to prove her innocence. However, the only person who can decipher these clues is Alina because, whether she wants to admit it or not, she and June are very much alike. Now she must decide whether to use this power and her newfound freedom to her advantage or to fight to bring peace to a country that wronged her before time runs out.

This stunning thriller from acclaimed author Megan Miranda will leave readers wondering how far they would go to escape the past.
