I bought Jodi Meadow’s INCARNATE the day it came out last January and then it proceeded to sit on my shelf for reasons I’m not quite sure of. This is quite an imaginative fantasy–and concept–and I’m glad I finally picked it up.
Ana lives in a world where every soul is reincarnated–everyone but her. She is a new soul, born into a body meant for another, who failed to be reincarnated. As such, she is scorned (and feared) by many, including her own mother. Her journey to find out why she was born takes her through a wonderfully rich world populated by dragons and sylphs, thinking cities, dynamic characters, and quite a few twists. One perk of being slow to read? Not suffering the wait for the sequel, which comes out at the end of this month! Hooray for me.
