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.

I adore the Newsoul trilogy, so I’m sad to see it end. Both Incarnate and Asunder were strong books, and thankfully Infinite was just as strong of an installment. It really is a wonderfully satisfying end to the trilogy.

Infinite picks up shortly after where Asunder left off. Ana and Sam are dealing with the fallout of being betrayed and Ana’s exile. Heart and the area surrounding it is becoming increasingly unstable, Soul Night is quickly approaching, and anyone who supports newsouls is being targeted. Ana, Sam, and others set out to discover a way to destroy Janan before he can ascend and become immortal.

I’m always drawn to the fiery, hot-tempered characters, but Ana is a bit different. She is so sweet and innocent, yet she does have that fire. I go from wanting to hug and protect her, to being completely proud of her for being so strong and fighting for what she feels is right. I love the relationship between Ana and Sam; it’s so sweet and tender. He believes in her and is willing to follow her anyway. I just want to lock them up together and keep them safe. Unfortunately, the reality of her world is, she has to make a very difficult decision that may entail losing Sam.

Any answers I’ve had throughout the first two books were answered, and that made me very happy. I always wondered about the world itself and how it all came about, but I wonder no more. It’s actually pretty cool, but I’m not giving up the goods. I love how everything came together, any final puzzle pieces were put snuggly in place.

I remember almost not reading the first book because I was hesitant of the fantasy elements, but I’m so glad I went with it. The series isn’t bogged down with heavy world-building. In fact, it’s very easy to accept and get into. The plot was very interesting; I loved the way Meadows incorporated the reincarnation aspect into it. And of course, the characters get high praise from me. World-building, great plot, and awesome characters – three for three!

Infinite made me laugh, tear up a little, but definitely left me with a huge grin. The entire Newsoul trilogy is a solid read, and I look forward to more of Jodi Meadows writing.

  1. I’m really glad you loved this one, Christy! I’ve only read the first book but seriously want to pick up the second. I might get to it soon, since now I know that this one was as strong as the first (and second, which I haven’t read)! Lovely review. <3

  2. Yay Christy! I was hoping this would be a strong end to the trilogy and I’m so glad you thought it was. I’m super excited to hear we get answers for all our questions, there’s nothing I love more than finding out what I’ve wanted to know all along in the final book. So excited to get back to Ana and Sam!

      Meadows did a really good job at filling any holes and giving a glimpse of what the world used to be like.

      It’s not that I don’t like fantasy or anything, it’s just that the world-building tends to feel like a chore to get through. At least at first. That’s why I always give an UF series at least a 2 book chance. The first book usually bores me at times. And of course, I love paranormal!

    • Christy

      I usually avoid most fantasy because the world tends to be overdeveloped, but I didn’t feel that way with this at all; I thought it was on the light side. Definitely a matter of perspective. Just like people will talk about how dark and disturbing a book is, and when I read it, I wonder what was supposed to be so dark and disturbing. lol.

  3. I am behind in this series, but I absolutely love the world, and Ana and Sam. Hoping to start this one very soon, and I’m absolutely thrilled to hear that you were happy with the ending and that you got the answers you were wanting (I also have a lot of questions I’m hoping to have answered in the final installment!). Lovely review, Christy!

  4. I didn’t completely read your review because I’m still in the process of finishing this one, but I’m glad it ends satisfactorily! The romance is something I’m not a fan of and I thought there was too much of it so I keep holding it off, but it seems now I /have/ to continue, especially if it ends on a high note. Thanks for the review, Christy!

  5. There really are a lot of series enders this year, I actually forgot about this one, while I did enjoy Incarnate and the uniqueness of reincarnation in their world, but I kind of thought Ana and Sam’s relationship was a bit icky. So I guess it didn’t leave that much of an impression on me, but you can’t help but adore those covers, so freaking gorgeous. Glad the series ended alright with you though! 🙂

    For some reason the description of these just never really appealed to me, but now that the trilogy is finished and people are loving it all the way through, maybe I’ll give it a try. Every summer I try to binge-read a few trilogies and this one is definitely on the list of those I’d like to try!

  7. I really love this series. I think Jodi has an amazing writing style. I was happy with the ending, although I did find it predictable 🙁 But over all this series was quite pleasing for me. I enjoyed the first book the most. I did love Jodi’s world and her world building. Quite nice for a sci-fi/fantasy type book.
