andlt;b andgt;Seraphinaand#8217;s first love made her immortaland#8230;her second might get her killed.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Incarnation is a new series that introduces a fresh mythology perfect for fans of bestselling series like The Immortals by Alyson Noel and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the worldand#8217;s riches, but at a very high price: innocent lives. Centuries ago, her boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered a method of alchemy that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, jumping from one vessel to the next, taking the humanand#8217;s life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what sheand#8217;s done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Then sixteen-year-old Kailey Morgan gets into a horrific car accident right in front of her, and Sera accidentally takes over her body. For the first time, Sera finds herself enjoying the life of the person sheand#8217;s inhabitingand#8212;and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until sheand#8217;s his again, and every moment she stays, sheand#8217;s putting herself and the people sheand#8217;s grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing thatand#8217;s eluded her for centuries: true love?

Synopsis:

People say ‘love never dies’… but love might be the death of Seraphina. Seraphina has been alive since the Middle Ages, when her boyfriend, Cyrus, managed to perfect a method of alchemy that lets them swap bodies with any human being. Sera ran away from Cyrus years ago, when she realized that what they were doing—taking the lives of innocent people—was wrong. She doesn’t want to die, so she finds young people who are on the brink of death, and inhabits their bodies. When we meet Sera, she has landed in the body of a girl named Kailey who was about to die in a car accident. For the first time, Sera falls in love with the life of the person she’s inhabiting. Sera also falls for the boy next door, Noah. And soon it’s clear the feelings are returned. Unfortunately, she can never kiss Noah, because for her to touch lips with a human would mean the human’s death. And she has even more to worry about: Cyrus is chasing her, and if she stays in one place for long, she puts herself—and the people she’s grown to care for—in danger.
