The Sixteen - Book Review
What Happens Next?

The Sixteen: Soul Jumpers Series - Book Two is Book Two in the Soul Jumpers Series by Ali B. Usually, I would not start reading a series out of order but it was possible to do given the writing style of this book.

This book can stand alone, but I will definitely read the first book Iris Brave (Soul Jumpers) (Volume 1) to provide access to some of the back-story. It's suitable for Young Adults and Tweens, provides some paranormal activity and mystery, and keeps a brisk pace of activity.

Iris Brave is introduced to a group of soul jumpers and is as skeptical as any young person would be! Her father's been kidnapped, and it becomes up to Iris to save him. She is a engaging character, full of bluster, and just a bit of daring, but will she be able to keep her head about her and succeed with her plans? She thought she had lost her father, so she is very dismayed to find that this group has information that he is essentially still alive, at least his soul is. His soul now resides in another body, but there are those willing to kill to keep the secret.

Ali B. has done a great job building her world and her personalities. Her portrayals were very intense and I could easily envision the settings as if I was right there in the adventure with them.

The end of the book came too soon, and I am impatiently awaiting Book 3 to see what happens next. I purchased Book One to get the full scope of the characters. I enjoyed the tenseness and pressure she develops in her writing and was surprised at the ending - it was not at all what I expected!


All I can say is that if you love YA and Tween reads, this is one series you will definitely want to get started on.



NOTE: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and this in no way effects my honest opinion.
