Asunder by Jodi Meadows - ADVISABLE

Meadows, Jodi Asunder, 416 p. Katherine Tegen (Harper), 2013.  $18.  Violence: PG; Mature Content: PG; Language: G.  

The citizens of Heart have made lots of assumptions about Ana and her “newsoul”, making her out as inferior or not human and not worth existing.  After the disaster of the night of dragons and sylphs, however, it looks like more new souls will be born and some in the community will resort to murder to stop it.  The secrets of Heart need to be exposed, but first Ana needs to garner support and protect the other newsouls.  But if Heart entered into an evil covenant willingly, there may be no one to turn to.  

Asunder and the Incarnate series is a great next read for students who loved Hush, Hush, or Possession, or Delirium.  Ana makes a great main character - she is courageous and she knows when she needs help.  There isa some romance, but Ana would still live without it.  The answers do not come easy to any of the mysteries, so iIam looking forward to the next book.
