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.

Incarnate is a unique book full of passion and new ideas. Look at that beautiful cover! Eye catching, it will draw readers in and the story will keep them there. Ana is a new soul, struggling to fit in and be recognized in the world she was just born into. Along the way she meets Sam, a boy her age with more to him than meets the eye. Sam and Ana have a acquired relationship at first as Ana settles into her new life. Eventually the two bond, and the book picks up page.

Readers will relish in this new idea about souls and reincarnation. Jodi Meadows creates a world where all bets are off and nothing is guaranteed. While the book is original and thrilling, I felt that something was missing. Maybe it is Ana's somewhat flat personality, or the writing style itself, but I would like to see more UMPH in a sequel. Meadows seems afraid of pulling out all the stops and just letting her writing flow through her. 

Incarnate is a great read, and fans will be expecting great things from Meadows in the future.
