About the Book:

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.

No soul

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?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.





Review gold new 2-min

Absolutely beautiful… poetic, fascinating and refreshing, the world of Incarnate is breathtaking…



In a world where everyone is constantly reborn, there are virtually no secrets because everyone knows one another. Envision never having to truly suffer loss or grief because you can expect to see your friends or family in their next life.  Now, imagine being born a blank slate. Not reincarnated.  No old soul. No familiar soul. You are alone, you are hated, and most of all you are unloved because you replaced someone else. This is the world and reality of Ana in Incarnate.


I absolutely adored Incarnate.  Maybe it’s because I am still on my cloud 9 high from Shadow and Bone, or maybe because it was an audiobook read by the hypnotic voice of Katherine Taub, either way this was another excellent novel with a refreshingly unique premise and incredible world. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Ana’s new soul and what that meant for her in a world where everyone else had lived many, many lives, with one soul, and so much more experience than she could ever imagine having in just one short life.


From the beginning you get to experience Ana’s anguish. She was never truly loved or even wanted. Her mother, whom I wanted to smack on several occasions, was nothing short of the ‘B’ word, and treated her daughter like she was below every other life form. She in a sense treated her like cattle. Ana’s story was truly heartbreaking, and stirred a lot of emotions within me, and I’m sure it may do the same for some of you. Thank goodness though she met Sam. Despite the age difference and experience levels, the two were great together. Whether they (Sam) were denying their feelings, or making beautiful music, their story is one that will stick with me for a long time.


Overall, if you crave some emotional depth to your stories, a descriptive world, and characters you can root for, I HIGHLY recommend Incarnate. I also suggest going the audiobook route because the narrator’s voice will put you in a deep trance transporting you to Range, a place you will never want to leave.
