I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The Emperor’s Soul

Cover of The Emperor's Soul.

Wow. It’s not only the soulstamp concept that drew me in, it’s the mechanics of plausibly altering the past, and the basic assumption that everything has a soul, an understanding of self, and a dream. Love it. At the same time, it’s very much a one-gimmick story, so if you can’t get into the gimmick, you won’t like it โ€“ but at under 200 pages, you also won’t have lost much time. I’d recommend giving it a shot.
