A review by tiareleine
Incarnate, by Jodi Meadows


This book was... Interesting. I really can't decide if I liked it a lot. Maybe it's because I've been reading a lot of more serious books, and this one is a little more light-hearted, it didn't leave me with the same kind of impacted feeling as the last book I read (The Darkest Minds) but I still enjoyed it.

What I liked:
- Original plot. This is a good break from the usual YA fantasy plots. I'm getting real tired of fairies and angels and witches and etc. this book focused on people who were technically humans, but their souls were reincarnated whenever they died.

- Ana. She was a good character. I loved her curiosity, and that she didn't let the way her mom treated her crush her spirit.

- No love-triangle! I think that speaks for itself.

What I didn't like:
- the world building. It wasn't terrible, but I was a little bit confused sometimes. I had thought that they were some sort of fantasy creature, since the whole thing takes place in basically another world, but it turns out they're human.

- Lack of description. I like it when the author gives the reader some liberty on what the character looks like, but with this book I really had a hard time picturing any of them, because there wasn't much to go off of. Ana has red hair and was shorter than Sam... I'd imagined her as pretty tall until they said that. I don't remember anything about any other characters appearances. And I don't really understand what Sylph rare supposed to look like.

I do think that I liked it more than I dislike it, and am looking forward to the rest of the series.
