This is another one of his novels that was turned into a movie featuring my favorite actor of ALL TIME John Wayne. There really is a lot going on in this book…The Apaches are uprising….Angie Lowe and her little boy have been left to fend for themselves on their ranch (which is on a watering hole that the Apaches frequent), the army is trying to get the Apache situation under control while trying to save the lives of the families around the fort and Hondo Lane is in the middle running dispatch for the army while trying to keep not only himself alive but also Angie and her little boy.
Lots of drama….Lots of gun play….Lots of all the things that make a Louis L’Amour western a Louis L’Amour novel.
Our main character, Ana, was never meant to be born to the Range. On the Range the people have been reincarnated over and over again for thousands ofOur main character, Ana, was never meant to be born to the Range. On the Range the people have been reincarnated over and over again for thousands of years. Then Ana comes along and is born in place of one of the million souls who have been reincarnated since the very beginning. There are those who view Ana’s birth as a sign of a new age. Then there are those like Ana’s very own mother who view her birth as a sign of the end. It’s very unfortunate that Ana is born into such an unforgiving world. In Incarnate Ana will face many things like dragons, assassins, and dangerous shadow creatures just to name a few. But Ana has her friend Sam there to help her and with his help she might even make it and learn why she even exists.
If you are a reader who enjoys reading dystopian novels you should enjoy Incarnate. The authors writing style is very understandable without being “in your face” obvious. The world that the author has created is of a place that is trying to move forward and keep itself protected in an unbelievably cruel environment.
Ms. Meadows has most definitely earned this 5/5 review. This author’s idea alone is really unlike anything that I have heard of much less read about recently in YA literature. Each and every character has their own very unique personality. Without giving anything away, our main character is very dynamic. definitely MVP of Incarnate. I can hardly wait to see how this series progresses and can hardly wait to get my hands on book #2.

Though I think in a few places Crossed dragged on a little bit. Nothing to terrible, just enough to keep it from getting a 5 star rating.
I think that as this series progresses Cassia just keeps getting stronger. Though I have to admit that there wasn’t much in the way of the “love triangle” in this book, meaning there wasn’t many Xander sightings in this book. I’m hoping he has a greater presence in book 3. The book is narrated by Cassia and Ky in alternating chapters. I did enjoy learning more about Ky.
Overall, I was really impressed with Crossed. The world that has been built-in these pages are beautifully described. I also really liked how the narration flows with such fluidity that I couldn’t help but keep reading. I think that Crossed is a really good follow-up to Matched and I can hardly wait to see how this series ends!

I'm happy to report that I know own all of the currently released Fever series.
What I really liked about this book was the author's writing style. Since this is the first book in the series your building a whole new world. That takes time and I think the author did an excellent job.
It seems that Barron's is my type of guy. Why is it that we're almost always attracted to the "bad boy?" He's tall, brooding and has an attitude. That totally equals out to HOTNESS.
Mac kind of annoyed me through out the book. Yes, you are learning something new about you and your sister and you don't particularlly like it but put your big girl panties on girly bird. As much as Mac did annoy me I did like that she was the primary narrator of the book.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the lead off book in this series. I have the rest sitting waiting for me on my shelf. I can hardly wait to read further and learn more about these characters!...more
