New soul

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.

No soul

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?

Heart

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 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.
