I loved this book. Completely, utterly, LOVED it. First off, the whole idea of souls being reincarnated and recycled is such a fascinating concept for me. This story tells of Ana, who is a newsoul, and therefore is alienated from other people. She does not have the past five thousand years of experience like the other inhabitants of Range do. She's having to learn all of these things and skills that others have honed and perfected for thousands of years.
She meets Sam as she is making her journey from her childhood home to the city of Heart. Sam is a recycled soul, yet he doesn't alienate Ana like other people do, but accept her for who she currently is, not whose soul she replaced. Sam is such a great character in this book. I loved him.
The romance between him and Ana is perfect- it doesn't just magically happen, it takes some building and time and trust and I loved that.The masquerade chapter is absolutely my favorite in the book.
SUCH a good read! I can't wait to pick up the second one and see what comes next.
