My INCARNATE Review
Title: Asunder (Newsoul #2)
Author: Jodi Meadows
Year Published: 2013
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 Incarnate 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.
Why?: I absolutely LOVED Incarnate! So, of course, I am reading the sequel! Jodi Meadows created such a unique world and I want to know so much more about the world and everything in it!
Expectations: I expect awesomeness. I want more sylphs, dragons, centaurs, and more! I expect to learn more about the world and why it exists/happens/occurs.
Judging a book by its cover: The cover is stunning. I love the colors. It reminds me of Lisa Frank notebooks, which I think represents the world pretty accurately. I image it colorful and magical, but the people within it and the situations are very real and thought provoking. Underneath the cover, the hardback is blue with a rose on it. Maybe the blue roses will come back in this book.
