Incarate by Jodi Meadows: Series review

Author: Jodi Meadows
Find the first book on Goodreads here!
SUMMARY (Incarnate):
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.
I received the first book, INCARNATE, a few years ago for my birthday, and I proceeded to read it in a day. I loved every minute of it. The way Jodi Meadows weaved together intrigue, romance, and fantasy elements just fascinated me. The concept with the reincarnation was totally unique; I've never, and I don't think I ever will, read anything like this.
Then Asunder came out a year later, and it was even better than the first. Although there were a few questionable things in this one, the great characters more than enough made up for it. You could see Ana's growth from book one, and her relationship with Sam and the other characters is great.
Now after reading Infinite, I am even more in love than when I first started the series. The trilogy ended wonderfully. A perfect ending to an amazing series.
Plus, there's dragons. How can you wrong with a book that has dragons?
Anyways, I highly recommend these books to anyone who loves dystopian and fantasy. You will not regret it!
CONTENT: Steamy kissing, one sex scene in the third book, but it is mostly implied. There is also some talk of sex. I think there's a little bit of swearing, but it is not bad if there is. As for violence, there's some kind of disturbing things, but none of it is very descriptive.

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer: Review

Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 4, 2014
Find it one Goodreads here!
Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard.

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.


 I don't think words will do this book justice. So my review will consist of gifs.



Cress was...

In short...

With a great cast of characters, magically interwoven fairytales, and a unique storyline, Cress is not a book to miss. I guarantee you will never read anything like it. Any fan of fairytale retellings will love this series!

CONTENT: Kissing, no sex, no swearing I can recall, and some violence, but it's not very gory.
