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.
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.
Spoiler free even if you haven’t read the first book in this series.
Infinite was the best book in the Newsoul series. I thought it had a great, quick pace which the other two books before this lacked. My favorite thing was getting to see more of the creatures that were just mentioned in the other books. I was hoping that would happen after I finished the book before this one, Asunder. I also loved learning even more about the sylph and the dragons.
Sam has been one of the most boring love interests that I’ve read in young adult. It makes me sad to say that because I felt like I should be able to relate to him since he’s a musician like I am. Sadly, no. Sam and Ana’s relationship is perfect and cheesy and therefore boring to me. Until Ana decides to be independent and do something on her own that she thinks is right. Then they (finally!) get in a fight. That at least was interesting. The thing with Sam and the dragons kind of gets explained but kind of doesn’t. I didn’t understand it all the way but at least it was brought up.
Ana developed into a fascinating hero. The resolution was perfect. The ending was twisty, bittersweet, and satisfying like a nice maple bacon donut. There was only one tiny thing at the end that I wondered about. View Spoiler »I wanted to know what happened to the dragons! Did they all die? Where did they go? I loved the dragons and I was sad that I don’t know what happens to them. « Hide Spoiler
Overall, this was my favorite book out of the series with new creatures and a great resolution though sadly I could just never like Sam.
Content Rating: Medium, for some violence. There might have been a few make out scenes but I don’t remember for sure. They weren’t very long if there were any!
