Synopsis:

Welcome to Soulless.
We are the generation that laughs at death.

Reincarnation; what was once considered a gift of immortality has become an eternity of nightmares.

Nadia Richards lives in a world plagued by reincarnation, a system of recycling souls where all past memories, personalities and traumatic events are relived daily in disjointed sequences. Trapped within their own warped realities, not even the richest and most powerful are saved from their own minds unraveling. Madness is the new human nature, and civilizations are crumpling beneath themselves trying to outrun it.

Within a society that ignores death, Nadia appears to be the one exception to the reincarnation trap. Born without any reincarnated memories and with printless eyes, the hot tempered 19 year old quickly becomes the ultimate prize to all those wishing to end the vicious cycle, or for some, to ensure they could evade death forever.


Review:

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I loved the idea for this book so much more than I liked the actual book. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either.

I started off loving the writing style, the characters, and the amazing world building. But then the book started to go downhill. It became tedious and predictable. The characters started to get on my nerves.

The book ended in the worse kind of way. I am fine with a good cliffhanger. But this book just ends. Most book have some sort of natural stopping point, but here it felt like the author got to a certain page length and then just stopped writing.

I might read the next book, but I am not going to hold my breath for it.
