Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

My rating: 2 out of 5

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?

Despite the gorgeous cover Incarnate just wasn't the book for me. I found it incredibly slow and it failed to hold my interest.

The idea about the constant cycle of reincarnation was pretty intriguing although I couldn't quite get my head around the fact that Sam sometimes came back as a woman and sometimes as a man. However, I just didn't feel anything for the characters. I usually quite enjoy the far out there fantasy type stories but I just couldn't get into Incarnate at all and struggled to even finish it.

Sadly Incarnate was just not my cup of tea.


  1. Ugh this is the second time I read a review about it being slow. Im not really too keen on reading this now, but still ill have to try and see it for myself. so sorry that it wasnt as good sas the cover. Great review nonetheless.


  2. Thanks Lalaine, you might find differently as I said it just wasn't my cup of tea.

  3. It does have a gorgeous cover, but I'm sorry it wasn't for you. I have a copy from netgalley so I'm still planning on giving it a go in the next week or so. Will let you know what I think! :)
