Asunder (Incarnate Trilogy)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The thrilling and romantic second novel in the Incarnate trilogy, a fantasy series about a girl who is the first new soul born into a society where everyone else has been reborn hundreds of times.
As a Newsoul, Ana has always felt alone. Some residents of Heart are afraid of Ana's presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable change and the unknown. When the people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself, but also for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Romantic and action-filled, the rich world of Asunder is perfect for fans of epic fantasy, like Graceling by Kristin Cashore and The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, while Ana's courage to expose the cracks in society and fight for what is right is ideal for fans of dystopian novels.

My breath hissed over the mouthpiece as my fingers found their places on the keys. The heat of his body warmed me as he leaned closer. “Here.” He nudged my right thumb farther down the tube. “And your chin.” He tilted my face up slightly, his fingers
the non-voice that had comforted me in the blackness, was being consumed. As I climbed, the sobbing and wailing grew louder, and I imagined the souls were calling me back, though whether to save them or die with them, I wasn’t sure. Up the stairs, I emerged into a spherical room. I didn’t stop running, and the entire chamber rolled under my feet as though I were trapped inside a giant ball. Remembering how the upside-down pit had sucked Meuric upward, I stopped while the hole was still on the
eventually a familiar shadow fell next to mine. My muscles felt like liquid as I lifted my hand just enough that Sam’s closed around it, and then his arm closed around the rest of me. The dam broke and everything spilled out. Sam hugged me so tightly I couldn’t breathe, or maybe the sobs choked me. He touched my hair and face, kissed me. His affection was featherlight, as though he was afraid of crushing me. I cried into his shirt even though there were other people here. Stef, Sine, Frase.
decision to come to.” Sine lifted her voice, glancing between Sam and me. “We agonized over it, trust me, but the fact of the matter is that Ana has not held up her end. By lying and withholding important information and items, she betrayed our trust.” “No.” Sam’s voice was low. Dangerous. “You betrayed her trust. She hasn’t been safe in Heart since she arrived. And would you have believed her, even if she’d come forward? People have tried to kill her; Deborl—a Councilor—and his friends set
