Review: Infinite by Jodi Meadows

The Year of Souls begins with an earthquake—an alarming rumble from deep within the earth—and it’s only the first of greater dangers to come. The Range caldera is preparing to erupt. Ana knows that as Soul Night approaches, everything near Heart will be at risk.

Ana’s exile is frightening, but it may also be fortuitous, especially if she can convince her friends to flee Heart and Range with her. They’ll go north, seeking answers and allies to stop Janan’s ascension. And with any luck, the newsouls will be safe from harm’s reach.

The oldsouls might have forgotten the choice they made to give themselves limitless lifetimes, but Ana knows the true cost of reincarnation. What she doesn’t know is whether she’ll have the chance to finish this one sweet life with Sam, especially if she returns to Heart to stop Janan once and for all.

With gorgeous romance and thrilling action, the final book in the Incarnate trilogy offers a brilliant conclusion to the compelling questions of this fascinating world, where one new girl is the key to the lives of millions.

This is going to be really hard to do without spoilers!

I will start by saying that Infinite was a beautiful book, and definitely the end that this series deserved.

What Asunder expanded in terms of Ana's independence and growth, Infinite lets loose in an avalanche. In this book we see Ana's true strength and courage, as she makes decisions no one else can or will make. Despite opposition and doubt from even those closest to her, Ana does incredible things. I very much enjoyed the final piece of her character arc.

In Sam too, we see growth. One of my favorite things to see in books is the development of relationships after commitment, and Infinite definitely gave me that. While seeing a different side of Sam--both strong and broken--not everything is always sunshine and roses all the time, but that is life. I'm a big fan of Sam, and his unending loyalty.

One of the things I particularly enjoyed about Infinite, was it's clues. Jodi has been dropping clues about the finale of this book since the very beginning, and I didn't even realize it until a little way in. Well done, my friend. (hint, the cover of this book is very important)

All in all I think Infinite is a very solid and satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, and anyone who enjoyed the first two books will be far from disappointed. Also, the last line of the book is awesome!
