Asunder by Jodi Meadows Review
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Katherine Tegen
Second book in the Incarnate series
Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.
Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.
In this second book in the Newsoul trilogy, Ana discovers the truth about reincarnation and will have to find a way to embrace love and make her young life meaningful. Once again, Jodi Meadows explores the extraordinary beauty and shadowed depths of the soul in a story equal parts epic romance and captivating fantasy.
I was most excited to read this book out of all the books that came out in January! Incarnate left me dying for more and the wait for this has been killer. This was an amazing sequel. The storyline was epic. The characters were even better than before. It was perfect!
Ana surprised me in this. She really grew into an amazing characters. I loved how confident she was. She was so strong, never giving up on what was important to her. And, never letting anything affect her. I don't think the newsouls could have a better protected or leader. My feelings for Sam are a little mixed now. He wasn't bad as a character at all but, he had some moments that annoyed me. And to be honest I'm not sure why. I love him though and want these mixed feelings to go away. This had some great side characters. I loved that I didn't know who was good and who was bad. I hope to see some of them in the next book!
I think I loved Asunder's storyline more than Incarnate which is surprising. I loved all the action and suspense. I literally couldn't put this down. It was so fast paced and well done. I loved it. I had high expectations and this made them look easy. Overall this was beyond amazing. I could fangirl all day. It had everything an amazing sequel needs. I highly recommend this one! Even if you didn't enjoy Incarnate. Give this one a shot!
