Reincarnation

Featured Reincarnationist:

Sam from Incarnate

Sam is basically perfect. When he first meets Ana he has no judgement and it’s incredible. Their whole race was basically brought up knowing that they’ll just be reborn again when they die. When this one time someone doesn’t come back and Ana is born, immediately everyone hates her. She took away the opportunity for a good friend to be reborn. Sam finds this out and he doesn’t care. He treats her like anyone else even when the town isn’t behind him. He’s also an incredible musician which I loved reading about. I loved how his music was a huge part of who he was, it made him such an interesting character to read about.

Summary: New soul

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.

No soul

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?

This is the only book I’ve read about reincarnation. Are they any others out there?

  1. Deceived: Soul Keeper #1 is a YA book with several characters who reincarnate until the time is right for them to take on their challenge. I’ve read books 1 & 2 in the series and enjoyed them both.
