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. Readers discretion: Adult language, violence and some adult scenes. For mature audiences only.
Five Boundless Stars
Soulless, is a fresh, unique story in the Dystopian genre. There’s so many stories in this genre, that sometimes it seems their all the same. But not Soulless.
This was a heart pumping, nail biting tale of Nadia. One who has never been reincarnated. And about everyone is curious about her and want to do horrific experiments. Until she meets, a psychotic pretty much genius, Diesel.
“Humanity didn’t have any love left for anyone, not even themselves.”
I loved Nadia and Diesel. You would think that Diesel would be one of those characters that you wouldn’t love. There’s so much standing against him. But who really is Diesel? in a world with no love, it’s hard to understand what your feeling.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I had actually seen Soulless often. But had never given it a chance till now. And yes I regret waiting so long. But usually the stories that you wait to read, are the best. This is the first I’ve read of Jacinta’s. Her writing was awesome and was able to draw me into the story. Enough for the sweepers to scare me through and through. The story is intense, You will just be fully immersed into it. Not even realizing the time or what page your on. That only happens so often.
Overall, I give this book Five Boundless Stars. It is totally worth more than Five. But again, that’s how the ratings work. I can’t wait to jump into #2, Soul Finder.
