Here is the summary of the book:
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? 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? Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.
Regardless of what is inside or how you are born, you can be anything you want to be if you put your hearts and souls into it. This is what Incarnate tells us in its own subtle way. This is the story of Ana as she tackles the world around her, being the only new soul or as the people around her liked to curse nosoul, has known all but contempt, loneliness and anger her whole life. Now at 18 when she finally leaves home to find her origins, Ana comes across a world that does not know what to do with her....it is upto to make a niche for herself....find why she is the only one....and maybe even let friendship and love inside as well.
Incarnate was one of the book that rightly opposes the quote "never judge a book by it cover".... because GOD THE COVER IS SIMPLY HEAVEN .... HEAVENLY and the story was equally such. I definitely loved Ana and Sam....come on what was there not to like! Ana is strong, determined, loyal and somewhat reckless when the moment calls it. She had all but contempt at the hands of those around her so it is but natural for her not to be trusting of others. All she wants to know is 'why?' and 'how?' is she there when all around her everyone is a reincarnated soul. She just wants to belong somewhere and I commend her for that.
Then there is Sam, he finds and rescues her. At first even he doesn't want to do anything with her but that slowly changes. He sees her as what she is ..... not a nosoul but a newsoul ... a person while new but still a person capable of feelings. Their's is a connection and rapport that builds up slowly through time. Sam is Ana's mentor and friend....the burgeoning attraction between these two is a sight for sore eyes. You can definitely see yourself rooting for these two as you skim through the pages.
I am so adding Jodi Meadows to list of favorite authors. Her's is a work of coalition, futuristic as well as fantasy. Incarnate while a little difficult to understand at first with the sci-fi element is a marvelous read. Through the pages you'll find everything you'll need, first experiences, adventure, action, mythology, trust, friendship, wonder and most of all love ...... I want to read ASUNDER NOW .....
