Soulless by Jacinta Maree @goddessfish @jacintamaree6

by Jacinta Maree

GENRE: Dystopian New Adult


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.


The world had turned to waste; immortality was never meant for man and it drove humanity to the edge of destruction. There had been plenty of stories about how the human race would end. Unlike the movies from Hollywood, there was no big bang caused by a sun exploding; there was no catastrophic moment where our world was flipped upside down like in a nuclear war or zombie virus outbreak. It was gradual, like a seeping virus that withered everything within its path until it ground us down into brittle, hollowed out cores. It wasn’t out to destroy our bodies; it destroyed everything we once treasured. Hope, love, compassion, joy… even our mortality. It was all gone. And now it mocked us with a peace we could never achieve: death.

I kept my hand behind me, ensuring Annie was safe before slowly creeping out. The steady thump of the Sweepers had almost gone silent as they walked further away down the block, but it was Annie’s sudden scream that spun me around. A dark shadow stepped up behind us just as a snap of red crossed my vision.
No! Before I had time to jerk my head away, the Sweeper lurched forward and snared me by the shoulder. My body seized underneath its grip as it hoisted me up from the ground.

“Run, Annie! Run!”

Annie squealed and pressed herself up against the building. “Nadia?”

“Just run!” I screamed as the robot reached over and took the shotgun from my hand. It crushed the barrel easily before finding the pistol in my back pocket. It smashed that one, too.

In its inhuman static voice, the machine said, “Corrupted identification code detected. Blacklisted threat. You are under arrest.”

“I’m not one of them!” I screamed as I wrestled in its grip. “Let me go. I’m not one of them!”

Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry, I don't know how to comment to each individual post *I'm a noob* so please excuse my bulk answer. Thank you Nikolina, Marcy, Lisa, Trix, Victoria and Rita for your wonderful comments. I am so pleased to hear you are enjoying the tour and liking what you see.

Clogo9372, thank you for your question. When it comes to the pros and cons of writing, I think the best part is just being able to create worlds, people and excitement using my words. I love to share these adventures with everyone, but I think I'm at my happiest when I am able to successfully translate what's in my head onto the page. It fills me with a sense of pride, especially if the scene was difficult or carried a lot of emotion.

The worst part in writing is the ridiculous expectations you put on yourself and the book. I've gone through the phases of believing sales were more important than the happiness of writing. And it is a dark place to live, because you are always comparing yourself to others. I love writing, the editing, the blank page, the writers block, it's all just part of the beautiful package. I guess it's more of a mentality towards writing that I hate. I write because I love it. Even if my work were never gets to see outside of my own laptop, I would still write.
