I feel a little let down by Incarnate, given the hype surrounding this novel before its release. I enjoyed it a lot, but it’s not one of my favourites and I had problems with a few things.
Firstly, I absolutely loved the world it was set in. It was fascinating to read about, and there were so many new things to see and learn. I really hope we explore more of this world in the next book in the series, otherwise I’ll be very disappointed!
There were lots of questions that were brought up in this book, and by the end a lot of them had been answered but so many more had been discovered! I have mixed feelings about this, as it leaves a lot of room for the sequel, but I am dying to know what the heck is going on because I honestly have no clue!
I liked the main character, Ana, and felt sorry for her because of the way Li had brought her up. I did get quite annoyed by her temper tantrums that happened not just in the beginning, but throughout the whole book.
I’m confused about how I feel about Sam. He was really sweet at times, but he was also moody and annoyingly secretive. He was a 5000 year old bloke in an 18 year old body, and I have to admit that I had trouble with his and Ana’s relationship because, come on, she was 4982 years younger than him.
The writing style was good, but I wasn’t a fan of how most of the dialogue was written. It was very wooden, and drawn out and I think there could have been a more simple way to say things that would have worked better.
Overall, it was a good book, and I’ll definitely be reading the sequel because I love the world and the soul concept in general. I’m not sure about Janan, or any of that, but I look forward to finding out more!
