PSA: This review is for book THREE in a series. It will contain spoilers for books 1 and 2 because even the summary of the books is going to do that. If you haven't read books 1 and 2 in this series (Incarnate and Asunder) then why are you here when you could be reading those books?

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.
Ahhhh, Jodi Meadows. Will your wonders never cease?
Jodi Meadows has a way of torturing her characters. She's very much of the "What is the WORST thing that can happen? LET'S DO IT TIMES TWO" author variety. And it's wonderful. It causes such an intense emotional reaction as our beloved characters go through hell. I've been so attached to these characters for so long and they got the ending they deserved, despite the suffering.
Infinite was every bit as action-packed and romantic as the previous two books. Things were happening and moving almost constantly, but we still got to watch Sam and Ana be cute and adorable. I love how Jodi balances the two elements and makes sure we're never lacking in either, but you still never quite know what's next.
As a third book in the series, this is pretty much everything you could want. It's not near and clean but I still felt content, like I could say good bye. Sam and Ana and all of their friends got the endings that were right for them and that made sense. It was a fantastic end of a trilogy and did everything I wanted it too.
If, for some reason, you haven't finished this series yet? Work on it immediately. If you haven't read this series, again, why are you reading this go start it immediately!
