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.

Don’t worry if you haven’t read Infinite yet — this review isn’t going to spoilery. I mostly want to talk about the Newsoul series as a whole and how YOU ALL HAVE TO READ IT. (To catch up, read my reviews of the first two books, Asunder and Incarnate).
Looking at the series as a whole, I’m really impressed with how understated, beautiful and compelling Jodi Meadows’ story was.
I wish there was a camera on me as I turned the last page of Infinite and a slow, single tear ran down my cheek! Because that is the PERFECT illustration of how this story affected me.
It’s emotional, as you can see from the slow tear. It’s steamy (truly, I am still thinking about the masked ball scene from the first book). It’s action-packed. And it’s incredibly thoughtful — the themes of afterlife, nature and love are very present, but never IN YOUR FACE.
I thought Infinite was a perfect ending for a lovely series. If you haven’t started it yet, get thee to a bookstore or library. If you’re midway through, keep going with the next book! It’s definitely going to be a favorite of mine for years to come.
