Waiting on: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

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.

I loved Incarnate. There was music, dragons, utopian societies that are foiled by an anomaly (I LOVE it when anomalies foil things!), and Sam. And also, Sam's scruffy chin. It's practically a character of its own. One definitely worth mentioning.

ANYWAY, I'm going to have to reread Incarnate in order to mentally prepare myself to be a pile of shambles after Asunder, because Jodi Meadows is so, so good at writing the pretty things that we all want to read.

Not as much of a fan of this cover as incarnate (are those flowers around her eyes?) but it's still absolutely mesmerizing. Just another of those pretty HarperTeen covers we've all come to expect.

Asunder will be published January 29, 2012 by Katherine Tegan Books.


  1. Agreed, I like the cover, and it certainly is mesmerising but it's not as stunning as Incarnate's. Yep, I think there flowers... O__O

    I finished Incarnate a few days ago and LOVED it, too! I have some mixed feeling regarding the ending but overall, I still really enjoyed it!

    Bring on January 2013 ;D

  2. YES. YES. YES. You know how I feel about this.
    I will also be re-reading this before Asunder. My friend Leigh is reading Incarnate now and she's texting me about how much she loves it and I'm re-living all the Sam-ness thru her. It's truly almost as good as reading it myself because I REMEMBER.

  3. I still haven't read the first book in this series - I MUST get on track. I mean, I like utopian societies, dragons... clearly there's something wrong with me that I haven't picked it up. Anyway, great pick.

  4. I want this book so much it's sort of embarrassing.

  5. Oh girl, I am SO excited about this book. I loved Incarnate so much and I am pretty hopeful that I will LOVE Asunder. Great pick!
