Going into Incarnate by Jodi Meadows I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I knew that it was going to be a story about reincarnation and that the MC, Ana, was different in that she’d never lived before. But other than that I had no clue about the world that Meadows had created. So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that this was set on a whole other world filled with dragons and other fantastical beasts. It was a fantasy…and I fell in love.
I loved this story and found that once I started to read it I became lost in the world and didn’t want to put the book down. However, there were several moments where the story seemed to drag out and then the ending was just way too quick. There was lots of set up to get to the moment and then blink and its done. There was also a bit of a cliff hanger ending in that many questions where raised that will probably not be answered until the final book in the series.
Other than that I enjoyed Incarnate a lot. I loved learning about the world through Ana’s eyes and seeing her discovery all the riches that were created in the millenias that the other souls have lived. I enjoyed the mystery and am curious to see what the doorless building means and the heartbeat in the walls. I also wonder what will come of the souls effected after the ending of this book. Meadows did a good job of creating a world that leaves the reader curious about knowing more. There were some cliches but they don’t overpower the story. All in all I enjoyed this book and its one taht I would recommend. I am also counting down until book 2….are you?
