If you follow me on Twitter then you know how excited I was to find Incarnate on my doorstep. This book was on my wishlist for AGES, and I spent a lot of time talking to Jodi online about how much I adore her and the gorgeous cover of her debut novel. Let me just say, she did not disappoint!!! Incarnate really deserves 5+ stars, but I only have a 5 star rating system. The only downfall was that sometimes things got a bit jumbled and I became a little confused, but otherwise, I have no qualms!!

The characters are freakin amazing! Ana (yes her name is just like mine!!!) is just adorable, and I felt so bad for her, not knowing who or what she is and having to live with a woman like Li, who is just AWFUL! She was like a sad, lost, puppy dog trying to find her way home, and I just wanted to reach out and give her a hug and tell her everything is going to be okay. Thankfully, I didn't need to do any of this (or feel bad about the fact that I couldn't) because Sam was right there, providing hugs and compassion! Oh Sam.. I have a special place in my heart for you! Sam is such a lover, he's so kind and takes such good care of Ana that I just loved him more and more with every page!! There are a lot of other characters that I really enjoyed too, like Steph! He/she is hilarious and awesome!!

The story itself is so original and crazy interesting, I don't even know where to start. First of all, it's pretty unlike anything I've read before. At first I thought it was a dystopian novel, but reading into it I discovered it's more fantasy than anything. There are dragons!! Albeit, acid spitting dragons that kill everyone, but still! DRAGONS! And there are creepy ghost-like creatures called sylph that burn people to death, and are basically unkillable! Jodi's writing is fantastic as well, I really felt like I was in Heart, and the world that she created.

I feel so lucky to have gotten a copy of this book for review, it was an amazing and beautiful read, and I absolutely cannot wait for the next one! The writing is fantastic, the characters are so relatable, and the world that Jodi Meadows creates is just awe-inspiring. If you're a lover of fantasy, romance, and some adventure you're going to fall in love with Incarnate just as much as I did!
