Wishlist Wednesday features books that have been on your wishlist for a long time, old or new.






INCARNATE
Jodi Meadows

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? 
 Heart 
 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?



c.j.'s thoughts
I've wanted to read this all year, ever since I saw the gorgeous cover.  The concept is also wicked original.  It takes something familiar, reincarnation, and adds a kink, new souls, that makes it totally new again.  There's definitely talk of romance, but it seems to focus on Ana's journey to discover the origin of her soul and to find her place in the world.  The idea of destroying reincarnation is just another exciting tidbit.  I want to possess this, hug it, and read it happily with some tea.

Earl Grey.  Lemon.
