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.
Christian belief: None.
Other Beliefs systems: There is or are. (it depends on who you talk to you) a maker called Janan. And he has a temple. Not many people worship him. Most people don't even believe him. Most people think that he was here, and then he just left.
Violence: sylph are like ghosts I'm pretty sure, they burn you, and it's REALLY hurts. So Ana gets attacked and burned by them. Dragons kill people with acid, and they attack. Other people kill other people, or they try to. Typical revenge. hehe
Language: NONE! AMEN! At first, I thought there was going to be some, but there wasn't! YIPPEE!! (can you tell I'm happy?)
Romance: kissing. That is all. <3
Any other bad things: Laws are passed not letting nosouls into Heart, so Sam and Ana have to aruge against that. Ana's mother Li, doesn't care about her, and is cruel. Some of the Council don't like Ana because she's a nosoul. Ana's father left when she was born.
Comments: At first, I was a bit skeptical of this book, but as I got more into it, I really started to enjoy it. I loved the plot, it was very original. I loved Jodi's way of writing, she writes alot like she Tweets. ;) Fave Line: "Less talking, more kissing." ha! I lol'd when I read that. The reincarnation thing was very interesting, I hadn't read a book like that before. I thought it was interesting that every time they were reborn, they could be a different gender, and that they buried they're former selves. I liked it, it was something new and fresh to read. :) All in all, I REALLY loved this book, (all the way through the dedication and the acknowledgments) and I can't wait for 2!
5 out of 5 stars.
