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.
