Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Genre:  YA Fantasy
Newsoul Series, Book 1

Description (taken from Jodi Meadows' website):
NEWSOUL 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.

NOSOUL 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?

HEART 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?

Honestly, I think all the hype and build-up that I received from various bloggers ruined this book a little for me.  I had very high expectations for this book when I started it.  Granted, it's a great book and an awesome read, I just feel it didn't live up to the enormous expectations I had in the beginning.

Reincarnation.  How it's described in this book definitely makes you think.  It brings a lot of questions.  But as the story goes on, it's pretty cool to learn about.  And the romance between Sam and Ana?  Beautiful!

While I thought the emotions Ana experienced were well received, I feel like there weren't enough answers to all of the questions.  This is definitely not a standalone novel.  And will I read the next one?  If for the sole purpose of getting lost in Sam's and Ana's romance?  Yes, I can't wait...

  1. I hate when that happens, when there's so much hype about a book and then it doesn't deliver in the way you think it would.

    It happens to all of us at one time or another, unfortunately.

    I did love this book and would love to be able to read the second one. :)
