Kevin James Breaux's sequel to Soul Born kicks off twenty years after the first story ends. There is enough back story to keep the 'uninitiated' in the loop, but it can also be read as a stand-alone.

From the get-go, I was hooked (maybe because I'm already an 'initiated'), and had me up well past my bedtime to see 'what happens next' to the ensemble cast. It was good to see Tala (the Elf) again and the return of one of my favourites, Zian, the werewolf. Back too in one form or the other is Opal, the misguided mage. And then there is the new cast, each with unique personalities that jump out the page and drive the story forward.

I look forward to the next in the sequel.

I liked SO many aspects of Blood Divided. The the plot is great and the writing is rich and descriptive, but there is so much more going on.

Blood Divided, the follow-up novel to Soul Born, is an exciting and wild return to the kingdom of Illyia, 20 years after the events of the first novel. Even with the time difference, the reader is seamlessly allowed to discover what changes have occurred in our "absence". I loved that there is no laborious re-telling of the first installment to get readers "caught up". We discover how the past connects with the present right along with the characters. We also experience the emerging horrors as they occur. As in Soul Born, the action is well described, vivid, jarring, and bloody. As a "reformed" mmo gamer, I could appreciate the imagery that seemed to follow the "Death Knight" and Mage.

This time around, we meet new characters, and revisit with the veterans of book 1. I have to say that I am seriously impressed with an any author that writes characters who are are not typical archetypes, but are combinations of traits such as good, evil, vanity, desire, love, selflessness, and self-loathing. I have to admit that the first time around I was not a fan of seeing the flaws of my favorite characters, but now I totally get it. Also there is no all powerful, super hero, warrior class, half-god to save the day. I liked what that said about the nature of the common person's bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. I could also appreciate that Mr. Breaux writes female characters that do not make me want to pull my hair out in frustration. The are not simpering, weak or helpless nor are they unbelievable powerhouses of aggression.

Blood Divided is the second in the Soul Born Saga from author Kevin James Breaux and is my favorite so far! I have been an absolute fan of Kevin's work since Soul Born, absolutely loving his way with words. My favorite thing about the first book was that, while definitely following the epic fantasy tradition, there was no clear line between good and evil. I was happy to see this continue in Blood Divided, a fresh and different way to go with the fantasy genre. It helps create characters that are so much more believable, practically jumping off the pages, much more than just words on a page. There was a very interesting mix of characters in this book, many falling into that gray area between good and evil.

This is the kind of book that you fall into and become a part of the world in which it is set. You feel for and with the characters and you live in the story with them. There are twists and turns, sadness and anger, honor and betrayal, and no small amount of intrigue. I love a book that makes you both love and hate the same character throughout the story! This book had a bigger cast of people involved in the story, all of whom were completely developed no matter their role in the story. The twists and turns of the first book melded seamlessly with this book, with surprising resolutions to many of the questions from the first. The next book in the saga will be Flesh Ended, and I absolutely can't wait for it!

Well all I can say is that I am a big fan of the first story "Soul Born" and of course the author Kevin. I was surprised when I read the original story because it was full of unique characters and a lot of exciting scenes. Each page gripped me. So I was looking forward immensely to the second book in the series.

Blood Divided didn't fail! It engaged me from the first page and Kevin has again created new and well rounded characters. Each are flawed either by greed, the desire for power and they are all superbly written.

The writing as with Soul Born is fast paced and edgy giving you the chance to take in what is happening and to imagine these events as they unfold.

The storyline has definitely built on all that was created within Soul Born. We are drawn this time into the world of royalty, and again we see the effect of magic on the world of Illyia. As readers you meet those who are evil, characters who are confused about their responsibilities as well as their purpose and I think we definitely get to see the physical as well as mental changes to certain characters such as Tala.

Kevin has always had a great ability to layer characteristics and surprise you with some new information at any time.
I loved this book. If you have read "Soul Born" then you no doubt had a lot of questions you wanted to have asked and this book doesn't just do that it creates more questions. All I can say is that the ending surprised me and left me biting my nails wondering what will happen in the next book.

I have been fortunate to talk to Kevin about this book while I've been reading. He is always there to talk to you about how you find the book and little insights into the characters which I always helps as well as makes me think. I do think it helped me to engage with the settings as well as the characters.

Blood Divided is a fantastic read. Like Soul Born it is a must read!!
