Convince us to read the book: Incarnate has to be one of the worst novels I have read in the past six months. The plot has been done, the characters stereotypical, obviously made for a sequel, and the discrimination, fear and hatred aimed towards the main character is discouraging and hard to pull away from.

Memorable or Forgettable: The idea that everyone except the main character has been reincarnated hundreds of times over the past thousand or so years is a bit hard to comprehend. Most of the major plot points were predictable and rather droll.
Cover: An engaging cover, the butterfly wings are attractive.

Popularity: 1P Yech! Forced to read it

Additional Comments: The opposition and hatred the main character faces is an immediate turn off as a reader. Having an abusive mother makes the main character seem to be asking for attention, and does nothing for her inner strength. The fact that Ana immediately falls in love with the first person she meets on her own is cliche and once again, predictable. I would not recommend this book for anyone to read as it lacks creativity, originality and any positivity.
