I thought this was a rare case for Aliera to be able to do that. I don't recall anyone else remembering their past lives. And Aliera only knows because Sethra helped her remember. And Sethra helping her could mean Sethra just showed Aliera some bits from the Dzur Mountain memory banks. And even if it was Aliera herself remembering, that could be tied to her bloodline, or the fact that she is now and was then a very powerful sorceror/ess.
