DARKSOULS
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.

SHADOWS
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.

LOVE
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.

Jodi Meadows has absolutely cemented her place in my list of favorite authors. Asunder was one of those books- you bloggers know what I mean.  It was a book I couldn't WAIT to review, and then wasn't able to right away, and then the book released and I had to move on to my ever towering stack of books to review and left Asunder behind.  Well, for my birthday I decided to pick a book I really wanted to read- and this was my pick!

I thought I loved Incarnate (and although the masquerade scene still trumps all) I really loved Asunder even more. Incarnate ended with a pretty big bang and I was concerned that this second book would lag a bit- not at all. This book was non-stop action and drama.  I am  not even kidding when I say I have absolutely no nails left after reading this book. And Jodi?  The babies?  You are a cruel cruel woman for involving innocent babies.  This mommy heart is going to explode from all the feelings.

There are hints of a love triangle in this book, but readers will be happy with what happens- I found it to be ... hmmm I am not sure how to put it without including spoilers.  It was shocking and excellent.  There are HUGE developments about the history and the whys of this story- and I found myself seriously sad that the story ended.  I cannot wait until the final book in this trilogy- Besides the gorgeous covers, I am really engrossed in the world that Meadows has created.

  1. I was enthralled and torn by the world created by Jodi Meadows when I read Incarnate. I am looking forward to finding more of a reading break in all my writing to finally get a chance to read Asunder. I need to make sure this is on my TBR list.

    Thanks for the great review.

  7. Incarnate was a huge favorite of mine, and still is. It has been a while since I had the pleasure of reading it, but I still remember the story and the characters, and that is a huge thing with as many books as I read. I have not read Asunder yet, and after this review and hearing how amazing Jodi Meadows Sophomore showing is, I think I need to hurry it up already!
