Incarnate by 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?
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?

Set in the post-apocalyptic world, during the past thousand years people living in the Range  have been reincarnated over and over again. What makes the incarnation the most interesting compared to other books is the world building. It's when the people are reborn, they remember their pasts including who they are and what skills they posses. When Ana, the main protagonist is reborn, and they scan her finger into a system to see who she was before, nothing comes out so she is defined as newsoul. Ana lives away from society growing up, and when she's old enough she ventures on her own. Ana then meets Sam and together they search for her past.  It's also a little been considered a utopia but I don't care it's a beautiful bookl.

This book is a crosses several sub-genres of dystopian, dragons, science fiction, fantasy and romance. Compared to the majority of dystopian books out there published this one was my favorite. If I could give a book award for incredible world building it would be awarded to Jodi Meadows. After the first thirty pages into the book, it's where the real juicy parts of the story begin. Once further into the book I found myself unable to put the book down. This is a unique and interesting read and those who love dystopian books will be blown away by this original story.
