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?
Reincarnation! The thing the people of Heart rely on when one of their own die. Coming back some time later with the memory of the past life, the people of Heart have seen to move on and learn from their past memories. Until one night when a baby is born and something out of the ordinary happens. She has "no soul." No recollection of a past life, and she is forced to start from the beginning.
Ana learns to become an independent girl, but one that learns to have a defensive attitude. Life growing up wasn't easy for her. Her mother treated her with an abusive attitude, that made hating her very easy for Ana. Ana sets out to find why she was created, and what her purpose in life is. Even if she is a "no soul."
This book was an easy read and the plot was enjoyable till the very end. The characters were lovable even though Ana does have a sharp tongue. The romance between Ana and Sam I found weird. It wasn't an all out romance but it was one that gradually grew as you read on. The thing I found weird was that up until the very end, Ana still gave Sam a defensive attitude even though she knew he wasn't trying to hurt her. I do understand that with her younger life living with Li was hard but that doesn't mean that everyone is like that and you should give a person a chance before you judge them.
Overall this book was a book worth reading. Filled with fantasy, adventure, action, and love, I recommend this book to all readers. It may not be a book that you would possibly love the first time you read but it is a book you will love the second time through.
I give this book 4 souls!
