Incarnate by Jodi Meadows


Rating: BUY IT!

Incarnate was one of those books that I was honestly terrified to start, because I had heard so many fantastic things about it. I was afraid that it couldn’t possibly live up to my expectations.

I was wrong.

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?

Heart

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? Read more…

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

I cannot express how much I adored reading this book. I want to glue Cate and Finn’s hands together so they can never be apart. I want to tear the Brotherhood apart and save all the girls they’ve hurt.

And I want the sequel NOW.

Jessica Spotswood written The Book–as in The Book I Didn’t Know I’d Been Waiting to Read.  The one I stayed up all night to finish and the one that made me want to start back on page one the moment I hit the end.  It was that good.

The world she’s but diverges from our own only a little.  Witches used to exist freely in society, in fact they basically had control over everything.  People loved the witches, respected the Daughters of Persephone–until they found out about mind magic. That’s when the burnings and witch hunts started.  But 120 years later, the hunts still haven’t stopped.  Girls are being sent to labor ships and the Harwood mental asylum without a trial–though having one wouldn’t help them.

The Brotherhood lives in fear of witches rising up and overthrowing them.  Brainwashed by the Brothers’ prurient preaching, society lives in fear too–both of the Brothers and of witches.

The Cahill girls are hiding in plain sight.  Cate, Maura, and Tess are all witches.  Their father’s taken a back seat in the parenting department, spending more and more time traveling for business and heaping more responsibility on Cate.  The problem is Cate’s turning seventeen soon. And at seventeen you either get married or join the Sisterhood–the female annex of the Brothers.

Hiding her magic in the Sisterhood is not an option for Cate.  She has to stay to protect her sisters from the Brother’s spying.  But she’s running out of time to find a husband, and the fact the Cahill girls have lived reclusively since their mother’s death isn’t helping. Read more…
