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.
This has been such a surprising series. It's got action and suspense, but it also has a lot of human problems. It's about not being accepted by the majority, about finding your own place, about figuring out who you are. There was also a tweet I saw after Asunder came out that's kept me thinking about this series that had to do with sex and gender and love. It had to do with souls being reborn over and over, in male bodies and in female bodies, and how sex and gender weren't necessarily a factor in romantic relationships. Male, female, it didn't matter. What mattered was the person, what mattered was what's inside.
