Summary (from Amazon.com):
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 suspicious and 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?
My Thoughts: Oh my gosh, I LOVE THIS BOOK! This book has all the things I love in it: fantasy, science fiction, romance, and reincarnation. Guys, these are my favorite things that I think about to make me not feel so bad. So, obviously, I adore the plot and I loved how the story progressed. I totally did not guess the end, and I loved it! Mrs. Meadows answers enough questions to satisfy my curiosity, while still leaving plenty of questions to be answered in the following books. The world is very well crafted and believable, and so interesting! I enjoyed learning about it with Ana. Which brings me to Ana, who is spunky and smart and lovably defensive. I think she grew a lot as a character during this story and I liked how she developed. Considering how she grew up, I think it’s understandable that she would be so afraid of the world and I think that her reactions are realistic. Now it’s Sam’s turn. I kind of love the stuffing out of him. He’s so very understanding and kind, but he still has a backbone. He is also funny and very sweet, and I liked how he approached his relationship with Ana. He is OLD, and his hesitation seems to stem from how conscious he is of his and Ana’s age difference. Personally, I think the two of them have a lot of chemistry and I see nothing really wrong with their relationship. Though I admit it brings up a lot of ethical questions, I think that adds to the complexity of the story. Anyway, I really can’t wait to see where the story goes! I highly recommend this book!
