What I'm reading now Incarnate
This will be released January 31st, 2012
Cool Cover, right?
This is a story about a girl, Ana, who is somehow born outside the million souls that have always been reborn. Her mother calls her a nosoul while others call her a new soul. When she is born one soul that had been a part of the million never returns and it starts a sort of panic as to whether or not other oldsouls will also never return, allowing more newsouls to appear.
The book starts with, "I wasn't reborn." Catchy.
Ana is shunned not only but society, but also by her own mother and her father disappears after her birth. Her mother is hostile and unloving to the end.
After coming of age, she leaves her home and stumbles upon a boy who is an oldsoul and he tries to make her life better. There are some interesting twist and turns with acid spewing dragons and other creatures.
I had a hard time with this book, not because it wasn't written well, it was. I just didn't like the story. I had to force myself to read it. It just isn't my thing.
Besides being well-written, this is totally unique. I've never seen anything like it. If you like science fiction/fantasy YA and something totally new, this is for you.
Here's the blurb:
