REVIEW: Incarnate

Book: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Release Date: January 31st, 2012 by Katherine Tegan Books

Pages: 374 (Hardcover) 
Source: Library

New soul
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.
This is going to be a short review because of these 2 very important reasons --
1).  I don't really have anything to say about Incarnate.
2). That is because I never finished the book

The only reason I am doing this very short review is because Nicole insisted for me to write (at least) a short review for this book. 

Sarah's Review:

The idea of this story was really good. That was the reason I picked up this book. Being reborn is an amazing thought and just makes you curious. It pulls you into it. Let me tell you: Its. A. Trap.

Four reasons why:
1). The way the author writes is boring.
2). The main character is boring.
3). The plot is boring.
4). The character's background is predictable and boring.

Basically everything is boring.

I like to give books a chance. I have read through some very uninteresting books just for the sake of recommendations. Those books make me sleep. This book just annoys me. It makes me sigh from frustration how the author makes main characters so idiotic. Ana is special. She never experienced anything. I get that if she was raised with a frustrating mom she would be wary of people. But if someone saved her life (not once but twice) she should stop being so.. so.. stupid. Sorry, stupid is not the right word. Its lack of common sense. She doesn't have any sense at all. Since she doesn't have any, go on instincts. But NOPE, the author makes her dumb/derpy and it makes me go >:-(

The Summary:

Yeah, sorry if you were expecting a good review and etc. This is kind of like a RANT so I'll just label it as one.  If you wanted to know, I only got to around 100 pages and have forgotten a lot of the book so ignore the mistakes I made. Comment if you read it and I missed some big action scene where the book suddenly becomes interesting! And if you loved it and you're angry about my criticism, too bad. This is my opinion but I do have to admit: I might have been too harsh. I am an ACTION/ADVENTURE type and this book lacked it.
