Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author CS Morgan.
A young man is being questioned in an interrogation room. He does not know his crime but he knows why he is there. A young woman is brought in and introduced as his RECESSIVE JUDGE. She has the folder with the sundial emblem. They hold the results of his SOUL SCREENING, the government's new initiative. As the young man reflects on recent events, it soon becomes clear the crime he is about to be accused of was committed in a past life and he knows only too well how dire the punishment will be. All this is a year from now. The existence of the soul is scientifically proven. Our past lives are real. Our past crimes are real. Now we must pay for them.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This was an enjoyable sci-fi story, about a world in which the human soul was discovered.
Alex was a strong character, and I could understand why he didn’t want to be screened, his attempts to leave the country weren’t the most well thought out though.
The storyline in this was about the invention of a machine which was able to scan the human soul, and to generate pictures of past lives. Those who had committed crimes in their previous lives were then punished for them, even if they had done nothing wrong in their current life. We then had Alex trying to run away to France to avoid the scan, and meeting an interesting character called Idris. The pace in this was pretty good, and I liked the little twists.
The ending to this was a bit of a cliff-hanger, and I liked the twist which we got thrown.
