Goodreads Synopsis:
New soul

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.

No soul

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 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.

My Thoughts:
Incarnate is a very unique read. It has such an interesting concept to it. Having the same souls reborn over and over. Knowing the same people lifetime after lifetime is mind blowing. But what happens to this perfect society that you have known for thousands of years when one of your friends doesn't come back and someone else replaces them?

Ana is the first newsoul ever. She is unlike anyone who has already lived. Ana has been segreated from the general population her entire life. They know she exists but they choose not to acknowledge her. At 18 Ana sets out to find answers for her existence. She wants to know why she is the first newsoul ever and will she come back when this life ends?

Sam is attracted to Ana. He cannot seem to stay away from her even if it causes her danger. Ana has always loved Sam even if she doesn't know why.

I really enjoyed Incarnate. It was a little odd when it first started. There are a ton of questions that come up throughout the book. Lots of drama and betrayal. But when Jodi starts to answer those questions she twists the plot and leaves us with more questions.

This was definitely an interesting read and I am excited to see where Jodi takes the story with Asunder. Hopefully my million and one questions will get answered.
