This afternoon I finished reading Incarnate by Jodi Meadows for an Around the World ARC Tour.
Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.
Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?
Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?
Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.
This book dealt with reincarnation which was such an interesting topic. The idea that each person had been around for thousands of year with a new body but same personality and habits was a new one for me. And it had me intrigued.
I felt so bad for Ana. Her "mother" was so completely horrible to her and doesn't really deserve the name of mother. But I was so glad when she found Sam (although I do have to admit at times that I wasn't sure if there would so evil plan to him.) The dragons and slyths were also intersting bits of the story.
I don't really have much to say about the book. I enjoyed it. But I don't really have much to comment on! *shrug*
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
Incarnate will be released on January 31, 2011.
