Soul Fire joins Alice nearly a year after her sisters death. Alice still visits Soul Beach but both worlds are rocked when Tim, Meggie's boyfriend turns up dead. Even more confusing is he lands on Soul Beach. Alice knows there's a connection between the two deaths and she knows that the killer is getting closer. Upon Tim's death she stumbles across a website about Tim and Meggie, the host is convinced that Tim is innocent. Alice is shocked that there is someone else out there who also believes Tim is innocent. With the help of Lewis she tries to track the website host down. Meanwhile on the beach someone wants Alice's help and she won't refuse.
I liked Alice more in this book, she's so lost and sees everyone as suspicious, she doesn't know who she can trust. Her parents want her life to go back to normal so she begins hanging out with her old friend Cara. We do see a change is Alice, she becomes more carefree and enjoys life a bit more. But Soul Beach is always at the back of her mind. She knows there are people there only she can help and that responsibility hangs hard on her shoulders. Alice feels responsible for the people on the beach, especially her sister's friends. I liked how Alice's relationship with Javier developed, he was so hurt inside. He covered it up with sarcasm and jokes. She tells him she will help, and this makes him more hopeful. I also liked how she and Cara became close friends again, they're great together. She's the sensible one while Cara is reckless. Alice's character seemed so much more developed in this book and I can't wait to see what happens next.
I won't talk too much about the other characters as they're all suspects and at points I thought each of them could be the murderer. By the end of the book, I think I know who the murderer is but I could be wrong. I hope it isn't who I think it is as they are very awesome but alas, it could all be an act on their part.
I loved Soul Fire, It was an excellent addition the the trilogy and now the standards are high for the final book. I cannot wait to see what's revealed then, there are so many little clues that make every character a suspect, so much could change in the next book and I'm so excited! Soul Fire is a great mystery novel that engrosses the reader from start until finish. Oh and that cliffhanger just makes me what the next book even more! I really recommend this series, it's unique! I love the way they are written and Kate Harrison is an author to look out for!
Nearly a year has passed since Meggie's murder and Alice's parents finally realise that Alice is spending far too much time online. They have no idea that she is wiling away her time on Soul Beach in the arms of the gorgeous but dead Danny. By setting down rules, Alice has to find another way to get to Soul Beach. On top of that, a newcomer to Soul beach has changed everything about Meggie's murder. Alice embarks on a rather dangerous mission to discover who really killed her sister.
Poor Alice, she is really struggling to appear to move on in the way her parents want. Luckily her friend Cara, comes to the rescue and helps to rekindle the relationship. Alice is finally getting out of the house and spending time with people who are alive.
I really do love Soul Beach. The concept behind it really calls to me and I honestly hope that a part of Heaven resembles something like this. It is just gorgeous. Everyone is just beautiful,on the inside and out and you long for a dip in the sparkling blue ocean.Not content with just one gorgeous setting in this book, the author takes us to another as we embark on a thrilling adventure in Barcelona. I came away with a yearning for the exotic. Barcelona has definitely been added to my list of future holiday destinations.
It is impossible to warm to any of the other characters outside of Soul Beach, as you don't want to be lulled into a false sense of security and be ridiculed when you discover they are the murderers.
My only niggle with this book, is that I would have liked to have seen us move forward in finding Meggie's killer. Instead I felt we gained more possible killers instead of losing them. I have a theory about who might have actually done it and I am really hoping am I am wrong. I also came away with more questions unanswered. I want to know the truth!
So we may not have discovered how Meggie died, but we do find out how another character died, which was lovely to discover. Alice really saves the day in this book.
Alice is a bit like a supernatural crime solver, bringing peace to many as she searches eternally for the truth. I really do like Alice, yet I can't help but wonder how she will cope when her time at Soul Beach ends. I am not convinced that real life will be able to compete.
Another cliff hanger ending to leave us desperate for the next book. It was good to be back on Soul Beach with the beautiful people and I long for my next visit. Well done Kate Harrison, you have definitely earned your YA stripes.
Alice develops as a character in the course of this novel, and it's easy to be on her side and root for her as she digs through evidence and theories to try to figure out who's responsible. Her parents worry about her immersion in the virtual world, creating a further complication when her laptop is confiscated 'for her own good'. Her relationships also develop further in this instalment, although there is much more focus on mystery and threat than romance.
As with Soul Beach, our narrator is Alice, ensuring we see everything from her perspective and are emotionally tied to her. This is broken only occasionally, with a passage from the murderer's point of view, showing us how much danger Alice is in as the murderer seems obsessed with her as well as Meggie. This is a tense read, and the fire theme is a good match for this level of intensity and potential danger.
Overall, I'd recommend this series and can't wait to see where it all ends up in the final book. I'm hoping that Soul Beach itself will give up its mysteries as well as the crime angle.
