Just the pure concept of this series is amazing. It's so outrageously original it almost makes my head spin.
However, Asunder is not as good as the first book in the series. It's kind of boring at times and I couldn't find a character that I loved a lot or would make me smile just thinking about them. That reason alone is why I gave this book four stars. If there had been a character that was just a stand out character, I would have given it five stars.
This book relies on music a lot. Half the book is Sam and Ana droning on and on about music. Yes, I get it. They love music but I don't want to spent half a book reading about how Ana should hold her flute.
One thing that was awesome about Asunder is that whenever it got a tad boring to the point that I wished I could read something else, boom! Something would happen that would blow my mind or knock my socks off.
The ending was wonderful. It didn't end in a way that makes me want to bang my head on a wall but it makes me want to next book in the series right now.
