Incarnate is a beautiful, enchanting tale about one girl's journey to find herself. Ana who lives in a world where souls are reincarnated over and over again, find herself isolated and alone when she's the first new soul to be born. Neglected and ignored by her own mother, Ana left her home to the city of Heart where she hopes to find the truth about herself.
Incarnate took me back to those days when I first read fantasy books. It's imaginative storyline just drew a spell on me. I love how the author creates the fantastical world where Ana lives. Seriously, after reading too much depressing end of the world scenarios, it's nice to loose myself in something that is so beautiful and once in a while.
The pacing is very slow so I do understand how some people got turned off from the book. But I think the author is simply building the momentum for the big reveal. Unfortunately, I think the book could serve as a stand alone as I don't see anything more to be developed as a series.
Recommended for: fans of high fantasy
Verdict: 4 stars.
