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.
LOVEAna 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.
OHHHHH, this book got me feeling all melancholy and sad and heartbreak-ish. SIGH. But, this is definitely one of the worlds I am in love with. If you’ve read the previous book, you would know that Jodi Meadows’ Newsoul series is about a bunch of people who actually keeps reincarnating over and over again. Basically, they’re indirect immortals. Cool huh? But imagine when suddenly one of them dies, and instead of reincarnating, a totally new person was born. *Inserts Ana* Yup, Ana is a newsoul. Like, literally new. Imagine the chaos, and stuffs. In the first book, Jodi talks about the reason as to why there was Ana, but it ended off with a whole lot of people dying, and they probably won’t be reincarnating thanks to the Templedark. It. Ended. Off. Like. That.
So what would the second book of this trilogy be about? Well, a whole new world of newsouls then. And that was scary, considering how many people despised Ana. But like I said before, I absolutely love this world that Jodi created. I kinda wish I was one of them HAHA. Asunder talks about the process behind the reincarnations and also, THE SYLPHS. The first time those sylphs actually listened to Ana’s music, I knew, I just knew that they weren’t that bad. That there was actually something good about them. HEHE god, I want a sylph.
Asunder was even better than Incarnate because there was so much more substance and adventure. And there was also a whole lot more danger, since little newsouls were popping out everywhere, and you’re just there like OH NO, THE POOR BABIES. Yeah, I was pretty much gripping my chair throughout the whole book, because I was scared of what would happen next. And the pace of this book wasn’t slow either. I kinda devoured it within a day, and I couldn’t take my eyes off the pages. There was so much action and danger and everything that goes BAM BOOOOM, that made me wanna protect Ana and all those little newsouls HAHA.
But man, Janan honestly scares me. And that ending. And also the fact that these people have no idea what really happened. And the romance between Ana and Sam. *melts into a puddle* HAHA. It was really intense, different from the cute little romance that they had in the first book. And I was totally rooting for them from day one, because PLEASE they’re totally cute together.
YES, I need the next book. Where is the next book, guys?
