Reading Level:Young Adult
Publisher: Katherine Tegen
First book in Newsoul series
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
This book seriously made my life. I've seen some pretty nasty reviews on goodreads. Personally I have no idea what these people are thinking. I adore this book with all my heart. The cover is beautiful and I love the butterflies on each new chapter. I will say the storyline wasn't extremely fast paced. For people who fall head over heels in love with characters its perfect. Sam and Ana spent so much time just talking and learning things about each other. I saw in reviews that a lot of people didn't like that. I loved it. You can just see the characters connect. I love how music is plays such a big part of the story . It makes me wanna go learn to play something. In the beginning I wasn't sure how I felt about Ana. Shes defensive about everything but I can see why. She's a new soul. She took someone else's life and everyone hates her for it.I'm the kinda person that believes everything happens for a reason. So Ana was born for a reason and I can't wait to find out why. I love Sam. He's just a sweetheart. He doesn't care what Ana is. He likes her for her and he doesn't care what anyone else thinks. Lin is the most manipulative person I've ever read about. I really liked Stef but I seriously hope her and Sam were never a thing. Overall this is honestly just one of those books you need to read. Why? Cause it amazing. That's really the only explanation I have :). I obviously have strong feeling about this. So read it or I'll hunt you down <3. 5/5 Stars
