Soul Mates - by John R. Little - A very twisted and demented little tale
Soul Mates begins with a tragic day in Nowhere, Minnesota and a genuine OMG moment. As a father and a grandfather, I can honestly say there is no worse feeling than being totally unable to do anything in a dire situation which ultimately results in the death of a child.
It's nine years later when we are introduced to twins Alanna and Savanna Clark who run away from home at sixteen to get away from a life where their mother was killed by their father who is in prison for life.
Parallel to this story-line is the tale of Jeremiah Moore whose life long ambition is to be world class magician . Eventually Alanna and Jeremiah's paths cross in Seattle, Washington. Along the way there are numerous oddities which don't seem to make a lot of sense, but eventually it all comes together in a most unusual way. So much so, that I may have to read this book again later, just to see all the clues I missed.
Despite the title, Soul Mates, is not a tale where the characters live "Happily ever after." As a result, I think the author has given us a much better story. It is a book you need to be involved in. It's not a casual read. I wouldn't recommend reading this one in an area with a lot of distractions.
Soul Mates is one of those tales that looks like it's going to be about one thing and then throws you a curve ball you never see coming. It's is currently available in both paperback and e-book formats from JournalStone.
