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.
Oh, this was such an awesome book! There was romance, mystery, action, and fantasy, and how unique it is! Loved it! And Ana and Sam were so cute together, and they were great characters by themselves! I just devoured this book in less then 3 hours, I just had to keep reading, and yeah, that's how intriguing and must need to keep reading it was!
Ana is special, and very different, she's only had 18 years of life, while everyone else has had their souls around for 5000 years. and she's grown up with just Li around, and Li wasn't very nice to be around if you were Ana. And so when Ana sets off for Heart, and has some difficulties, well, yeah for Sam to be there! There were some sparks there!
As the book progressed, you could really feel for Ana, she'd had a tough life, having to teach herself how to read, and she spoke up when she heard conversations about her, or where the speakers didn't necessarily want her to hear, and that took guts, and yeah, she was just a wonderful character with a love for music!
The temple and what happened to her there, and what she did, well, that toughened her up a bit, a bit that she might need later one, seeing as there's going to be at least 2 more books. And yeah, all that happened after, well, the explanation we got, I want more, I mean, it was just starting to be explained, but no how's, or and real whys.
This was an excellent book, and I really want to read the next one, like, now! So read this book if you haven't yet!!!
