Incarnate Pre Reading
Year Published: 2012
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 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?
Why?: The concept of this book really intrigues me. I'm interested in how people live if they know of the lives they have already lived. It's kind of similar to the symbionts in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Amazon also has been telling me to buy this book for some time.
Expectations: I am expected to be blown away by how this world works. I want to see an interesting utopia that begins to crumble.
Judging a book by its cover: The cover is beautiful. I must add that if the cover wasn't so beautiful I don't know if the book would have stuck in my head so much. The colors and the eyes really grab me. Unfortunately, the book without the cover is a light purple and has a butterfly etched into it. Thankfully I will finish it before I go out on a boat and will have to be seen with such a book.
