Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
What I noticed first as I opened my mail, was the stunningly gorgous cover. It is simply breathtaking. And so soft :) I like it a lot. Also liked that the book is purple. But I did not like the butterfly.. I like butterfly wings, but I do not like their bodies (A)
Then I started reading the book. I liked Ana right away; but I couldn't get used to the writing so fast. Took me 50+ pages, but I never felt like giving up, because the story was so interesting. Then, after those pages, it was very easy to get lost in the book. Which I did.
Ana is an amazing character. She is 18, which I'm happy about, and she is the only one in this world who has not lived for 5,000 years. Which makes her quite the outsider. But I kind of think it would have been a bit different if she hadn't been living with her horrible mother; Li. She was just so terrible. Evil. And I am very glad about what happened with her near the end ;)
But even so, Ana is smart, and kind, and at times brave, and she is sweet. I found her to be a great character :) I really did love Sam. He was interesting, and so kind, and cute, and just amazing. <3 Wish we had gotten to know him more. But hopefully we will in the next books :D
There were many other characters in this book that I liked as well, but it was also so very confusing. I like the plot, with the whole being reincarnated, but it really confused me that they all got new and different bodies each time they died. As in, once a man, then a woman, etc.
I really did like the plot. Where they lived, all the creatures that lived there. Liked them all. But felt like we didn't get to know them very much. Hopefully in the next book :) I did, however, not like the "Temple." And Jaran. Found that to be silly, since I do not believe in God :p But I do get that many people do so. I just don't like it very much.
I really enjoyed the romance in this book. It took forever before anything happened with it, but when it finally did, I really loved it :) So sweet. Although, I just read someone's review of it, and they didn't like that they seemed to just fell in love with each other. And I guess some people won't like that, but I LOVED it :) I'm tired of books with love triangles, or books where the couple aren't together :p
So this book was really great for me. Amazing plot, great characters, awesome love story, and not an evil ending ;) Although there was this part near the end with the Temple that didn't really make sense to me :p And I felt like it would have been better left out. But then, it might make more sense later ;)
Anyway, this is an amazing book, and you really should read it :) I am so so so so excited for the next one. <3 Needs it.
