Pre-Pub Book Buzz: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

The teen market is just bursting with new stuff! I have to say, I would have stuck to teen much longer had there been this kind of selection back then! It's really pretty awesome and there's so much crossover appeal these days as well. Any number of adult readers, myself included, have expanded their TBR stacks to include teen titles -- and many of our favorite adult authors are writing YA titles and vice versa.

Jodi Meadows's Incarnate is one I've seen popping up on other blogs. It sounds like a super cool concept and is one I'm anxious to dive into. Here's some info from the publisher's site:

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 Meadows's debut series and Incarnate hits shelves Jan 31 (so nuts that we're looking at 2012 releases already).
