Waiting on Wednesday: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today!  This weeks book that we are anxiously awaiting is: Incarnate. It's written by Jodi Meadows, and its release date is January 31st 2012!

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.

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 suspicious and 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.

I still remember seeing the sale announcement for this book last year, and I've been dying to read it ever since. I was so struck by the idea of an entirely new soul in a world where all souls are reincarnated. The idea alone is killer. Match it with that gorgeous cover and what I've heard is gorgeous writing-- I don't know how much longer I can wait for this book! Luckily, we're supposed to be getting an ARC soon. We'll let you know just how awesome it is when we can!
