Although probably not new, I did find the idea of a soul family intriguing. The idea that certain spirits would reincarnate over and over to reenact centuries long feuds and conflict kept me turning the page. Tying each soul to a particular element furthered the epic feel of the book. Adding a fifth element of the void as the catalyst for the breakdown each time made for a very karmic, thought provoking read.
The story is told with a series of flashbacks to half a dozen different time periods starting in the present and working our way back to prehistoric times. The elemental nature of the spirits did help them to be more recognizable in each of the various "flashbacks." Still the sheer number of them did weigh the narrative down a bit which may turn off more action or plot focused readers. History buffs and those fascinated by past lives, though, will devour this book in short order.
One aspect of this I loved was that the story or plot itself truly became the main character. At the outset we suspect that Hester may be our primary focus, and she is sort of, but the POV shifts away from her about 3/4 of the book allowing us to see through the eyes of not only the other souls in the present, but also their various incarnations through the ages.
Sherer does a nice job of tying up all these somewhat convoluted timelines at the end of the book and delivering a very satisfying ending.
