Seraphina's first love made her immortal...her second might get her killed.

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.

After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the world'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 human's life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what she's done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.

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 she's inhabiting--and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until she's his again, and every moment she stays, she's putting herself and the people she's grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing that's eluded her for centuries: true love?

After years of Cyrus' controlling love, and seeing everything there is to the world, Seraphina Ames has only one place left to explore: death. But running from the man who's only ever cared for her, is no easy feat especially since Cyrus has made certain that Sera would never be able to survive without him. Left on her on, even a suicide comes impossible, and Sera finds her 600 year old soul in the body of 16 year old's Kailey. Now Sera has not only Cyrus' indefinite pursuit of her to worry about, but also her longing for a new life with the human boy next door.
