The Year of Souls begins with an earthquake—an alarming rumble from deep within the earth—and it’s only the first of greater dangers to come. The Range caldera is preparing to erupt. Ana knows that as Soul Night approaches, everything near Heart will be at risk.
Ana’s exile is frightening, but it may also be fortuitous, especially if she can convince her friends to flee Heart and Range with her. They’ll go north, seeking answers and allies to stop Janan’s ascension. And with any luck, the newsouls will be safe from harm’s reach.
The oldsouls might have forgotten the choice they made to give themselves limitless lifetimes, but Ana knows the true cost of reincarnation. What she doesn’t know is whether she’ll have the chance to finish this one sweet life with Sam, especially if she returns to Heart to stop Janan once and for all.
With gorgeous romance and thrilling action, the final book in the Incarnate trilogy offers a brilliant conclusion to the compelling questions of this fascinating world, where one new girl is the key to the lives of millions.
What a thrilling, brilliant, beautiful conclusion to the Newsoul trilogy!
To be honest, I’d have never thought I’d like Ana so much when I first read Incarnate two years ago. What I particularly liked about her was the way she chose to live her life. She never took things for granted and perhaps because she was a newsoul, she questioned things that the oldsouls had never thought about. She might not be an eloquent person but she never used hardship as an excuse to not seek answers.
I also loved how this installment answered all the questions that I had about the fictional world and its setting. It was really satisfying for me to discover the connection between the sylphs and Janan, as well as why Sam had died in the presence of dragons for so many lifetimes. I also found it helpful to have read the e-novella, Phoenix Overture, before reading this installment. If you’ve been wondering about why Heart was located at a caldera or why there were remnants of white walls in various parts of the world, you’d definitely want to read this book. I felt really fascinated by the theme of births and rebirths and I was in awe (and in tears) when I read about the few sweet, magical moments between Sam and Ana.
Now that I’ve finished reading this series, I think I’ll never look at YA fantasies the same way as before. The Newsoul trilogy has opened my eyes to appreciate how a well-crafted story theme can add so much depth, power and complexity to the characters as well as the world setting.
As you can see, I’m a happy fan, and I wholeheartedly recommend this series to all YA Fantasy lovers!
Happy reading! 😀
