Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.
Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?
Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?
Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.
I saw this book during a book sale, and immediately grabbed it. To be honest, I only heard of Jodi Meadows because of The Orphan Queen, and I have heard mixed reviews about that book. But then I saw this book and I instantly knew I had to get it, because honestly, HAVE YOU SEEN THAT BEAUTIFUL COVER? Also, the summary got me all excited. Imagine a thousand of souls forever being reincarnated every time they die, but one day, someone died and did not get reincarnated. Instead, a new soul was born. Wouldn’t that start a chaos, because suddenly, everyone is afraid of no longer existing. Awesome huh?
I am happy to say that after days of not reading any FIVE STARS books, this book finally managed to lift the mood because it is simply amazing, and I cannot stop spazzing about it. Ana, the newsoul, was one of the best main characters that I have ever read about. She does not trust people really easily, and she has her reasons for doing so. And trust me, usually an MC would be like oh, I don’t trust anyone, but since this is a hot guy, I shall trust him but nope, not this particular girl. It actually took her awhile to trust people, and I loved seeing the bond that grew between her and everyone else.
Of course she was an outcast, because hey, she was part of the reason somebody truly dies, and after living practically forever, these people can’t seem to understand why would there be a newsoul. Everyone should seriously read this, because guys, you have not enjoy reading unless you read this book, seriously!
