Book description: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.
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.(taken from Goodreads)
Objectionable: Some making out, I don't remember anything further than that happening. Some injuries, hatred and attacks. Pretty much killing someone by pushing them after stabbing them. No language that I can remember. The whole reincarnation thing. A Janan that is supposed to be like a god, but no one really knows who/what he is.
Thoughts:This book is so unique! I can't even begin to explain what it has. Souls being reborn (not a huge fan, but okay it's definitely a mystery), an adventure just started, lots of cool technology and new ways of life in a slightly different (but still cool) world with new creatures and familiar mythical creatures like unicorns, Phoenixs and dragons. Then there is also a town that is very strange. The beginning to end was enjoying. The first 10 or so chapters were especially interesting then the last couple too. Apart from the reincanration I really had no problems with this book and Ana's story is one that might be our own. She's searching to find a place where she belongs in the world...when no one wanted her. This was a very enjoyable book and I would recommend to YA+ girls. I couldn't wait for the sequel which was an equal in beautiful covers and exciting plot-lines! Review coming soon of that one.
Characters:Ana was a nice character and I like her. Sure there are some points where I want to shake her, but there are others where I just want to hug her and take her somewhere safe. Another thing that was nice about Ana was that we are experiencing everything with her. It's new to us? Well it's new to her too. And in some parts in the first couple chapters where she is trying honey, learning the lies that Li told her weren't true and just learning how nice some people can be? Those are so sweet!! I really liked Sam, he was really sweet and loyal. Apart from those two there are some that gave me the creeps and others that made me smile. I thought the characters were pretty well done, not the best maybe, but still pretty good :)
Cover:I love it. The color, the butterfly that plays such a big part in the story...it's really beautiful.
