4.0 out of 5 stars The Irish Banana Review, February 7, 2012
This review is from: Incarnate (Incarnate Trilogy) (Hardcover)
Not going to lie: It took me (what seemed like) forever to get into this book. I don't know if it was my headspace or something else, but I just could not connect with this book for the first seven or so chapters. I would put it down and come back over and over, but finally around chapter 8 I felt like I hit a turning point and there was no going back. After that? I was well and truly hooked.

Let's just address the obvious first, OK? The cover. It is, hands down, the prettiest cover I have seen in years. It's just stunning.

Second, I was so completely intrigued by the plot line that Jodi Meadows came up with. Reincarnation isn't a new idea, but the idea of a society built upon it where everyone has known each other for thousands of years? That is epic and a fantastic idea.

The world building in this novel blew my mind, as did the idea of how time was kept and years marked. I love the way each block of time is given a name based on what happened then. And all the creatures that Meadows created! Talk about incredible! There was so much going on in this novel--action, romance, drama ... You name it and Jodi Meadows delivered it.

There is something about Ana that I just adore. Maybe it's because she's so new and fresh and such an outsider, that I feel like she needs to be protected (even if Ana doesn't share my opinions of herself). I loved her interactions with Sam. They, to me, really drove the entire story. I loved their scenes and interactions. I also love that their love built up over time and wasn't the formulaic insta-romance that seems to be everywhere.

Incarnate is a breathtaking, inspiring read. Meadows takes you on this incredible journey, and I was grateful to be along for the ride. I can't wait to see what the next book in this series will bring.
