It's said the eyes are the windows to the soul, but that's a lie. They are snapshots of a time yet to come–the future of the person to which they belong.
Cyclop Blaine stands out in a crowd with his pale skin and mismatched eyes, but it’s his ability to see the future that really sets him apart. The unusual gift makes him an invaluable asset to Tyler, his adoptive father and leader of the Victory Street Gang. It also means Cyclop must hide what he can do from others. Once, a man he knew only as Master controlled him, using him for experiments. Cyclop has no desire to return to that life.
But he may have no choice. A man claiming ownership over him haunts his dreams and waking moments, leaving him no choice but to go back to the past he thought he had escaped. Cyclop must face this man, along with his past, if he wants to reveal his own future.
Snapshots is a young adult science fiction book about facing one's past in order to move forward in the future.
M.B. Mulhall rated it four stars.
Snapshots is an interesting tale of a boy with a power and a past he can't explain. Cyc only wants to belong, to be human and know he doesn't belong to anyone but himself. The story takes some unexpected twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages, eager to get to the end.
Lynne keeps the story interesting and different from most of the other YA stories that are out there right now. It a nice change to see a male main character as well. They are rare in current YA lit. Snapshots was a pleasure to read!
