My Rating: 4/5 stars
This story is a refreshing tale about reincarnation, and the author handled the topic very well.
Everything was flawless in this book. The plot was intriguing without being too complicated, and Jodi Meadow's writing style is lovely. And that gorgeous cover!
The only problem I had with this book was Ana. What a confusing character. One second she would be a fearless fighter, and the next second she would go cower in a corner and start whining. I understand that the author was trying to make this out as a character flaw, and give her room to develop throughout the span of this series, but still. No one is like that; the way she acted one second contradicted what she did the next second. I guess I should call them mood swings, but I don't think that is the correct phrase to use to describe how she acted.
I can't get over how beautiful the author's writing is. Her lyrical prose and the way she phrases things is so brilliant. It's definitely one of the shining points of this novel. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
Sam was, hands down, my absolute favorite character in this book. Being the sweet and shy guy he was, I liked him from the start.
Something that I wish the author did was give us more information on Menehem. He was a very important character, and I, for one, wanted more background info to get to know him better.
If you want a spell-binding, compelling read, you need to read this book. Incarnation is a very interesting concept, and if the author improves on Ana's character a bit more in the books to come, this series would be a spectacular read.
