Goodreads Summary: 

The stunning conclusion to the Incarnate trilogy, a fantasy series about a girl who is the first new soul born into a society where everyone else has been reborn hundreds of times.

Ana knows that soon life in Heart will be at risk so she escapes with her friends, seeking answers and allies to stop Janan’s ascension and keep the other Newsouls safe. But only she knows the true cost of reincarnation and the dangers she’ll encounter if she returns to stop him once and for all.

Romantic and action-filled, the rich world of Infinite is perfect for fans of epic fantasy like Graceling by Kristin Cashore and The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, while Ana’s courage to expose the cracks in society and fight for what is right is ideal for fans of dystopian novels.

What I Thought:

I’m so sad that this series over!  Infinite is such a good ending to the series, and there’s something about this series that makes me want to read it over and over.

We definitely see more of the world that Ana lives in, and we learn so much more about Ana and Sam and everything was resolved so well!  We finally learn why dragons don’t like Sam, and why the Sylph act the way they do around Ana, and the connection to phoenixes, and it all came together so well!  Range as a whole is so real and imaginative, and I just love how everything is described.  And Cris!  Oh, Cris.  Cris is pretty awesome in this book.

As much as I enjoyed Infinite, I’m not sure how I feel about the ending!  It really does fit so well with the book, and I can’t imagine a better ending for the series.  But at the same time, I expected something…different.  I’m not quite sure what but I think I expected something more than what actually happened.  I did like the epilogue as a whole, especially one part of it that made me so, so happy.

Infinite has such a different feel than the other two books- I think there is a certain darkness to this series, and it just feels different in Infinite than it did in Incarnate and Asunder.  There are some sacrifices made in Infinite, and maybe that’s where my feelings about the end come in.  It’s not surprising, and yet, I still wasn’t expecting it.

Let’s Rate It:

I didn’t love Infinite the way I loved Asunder, but I still really liked it!  I loved seeing the world being Heart and everything just came to life.  Infinite gets 4 stars.
