NEWSOUL:  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.  NOSOUL:  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?  HEART:  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. Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

 When I saw the cover of this book, it was love at first sight. I just had to have it! The cover is beautiful and it will forever stay as one of my favorite covers. This story is unique. I haven’t read anything like it before. The author introduces me to a new concept - reincarnation. I have to admit that I was confused with the idea, but the story grew on me and I enjoy it. It was fun and adorable.

Ana is a girl that was born in a city where souls are reincarnated over and over.  She is the only one in the whole history of the city that has been born with a new soul. On her 18th birthday she leaves her house, leaving behind her abusive mother and her lonely life. Ana wants to find out why she is the only one of her kind. In this new and amazing journey that she starts she soon realizes that the answers to her questions won't come easy and she will have to overcome obstacles and fight for what she wants.

Ana, our female protagonist, grew up lonely, with no love and friendless. She is a really sweet girl, but is always confused.  Sometimes she was really brave and other times she was really delicate. What bothers me about her is that she complained and whined too much about her being a new soul.  I understand in the beginning, but she was constantly repeating it and making herself miserable with it.  I appreciated that she unfolded and discovered herself as the story progressed. Sam, the love interest, is really sweet, attractive, modest and passionate. I was totally in love with him, TOTALLY! He truly and honestly cared for Ana.

The characters and the plot were enjoyable. I felt that the story deviated more towards the romance and not Ana’s story but I did appreciate the love story. I LOVED the world building; the author did a magnificent job at this. Also her writing is flawless and eloquent. At the end of the story answers were found and the ending left me curious as to how the author is going to continue Ana’s journey. I would totally recommend this book to any of my fellow readers that are into fantasy and romance.
