Asunder Review

416 pages

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.

This is an exciting second book in the Newsoul series full of heartbreak, romance, and action at all turns. Although Ana has grown a lot since Templedark, she still struggles with the same insecurities that plagued her before. Ana now has to not only stand up for herself but also for the newly born newsouls. It's hard to take sides in this novel because on one hand you have the citizens of Heart who are used to always living and then you have the newsouls who haven't been allowed to live the lives they deserve. Both sides of this situation are easily seen in Ana and Sam's relationship since they both have a stake on each side of the issue. The newsouls being born have created fear amongst the original citizens of Heart and this is turn festers into anger. You can literally feel the terror and the mob mentality in Heart when they try to decide what is to be done with the newsouls. There is so much more going on beneath the surface and more secrets are revealed although these secrets also bring up more questions. By the end of this novel there is so much more I needed to know about what could really be going on in Heart. I can't wait for the next novel to come out so I can see exactly where Ana's path is taking her. I definitely recommend that you read this novel if you like utopian or dystopian fiction but make sure to pick up Incarnate first.
