There exists an ancient elven proverb, dating before the time of man. Life and death, like day and night, meet at a point where they blend into one. It is that brief moment when anything is possible.

There was a time when four sparks of life burned brighter than the sun itself. Megan was born with power, Lucien born with station. Autumn was born full of life, while Nathan w

Kevin Breaux’s first book in this series, Soul Born, had such a unique twist that I couldn’t wait to see what was in store for book two. Blood Divided did not disappoint. In Soul Born, we were introduced to the battle hero, Karn, the evil sorceress, Opal, and the beautiful elf, Tala. From this love triangle came, Megan and Nathan, Karn’s children with Opal, and Autumn and Lucien, Karn’s children with Tala. This is their story.
Breaux’s characters are more fleshed out in this sequel. He gives mul

I first heard about this book while browsing Goodreads, and saw that there was a giveaway listed for it. I immediately entered, and to my surprise I won! The cover is gorgeous and it is what initially caught my attention. Blood Divided is the second book in the Soul Born Saga, set 20 years after the first book. I haven’t read the first book, Soul Born but the author provided enough background/history of the characters throughout the book so that readers can don’t need to start in order.

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 ...more

I've never been a fan of dark fantasy, mostly because of the death and the horror. But Kevin Breaux's Soul Born Saga has changed that. The series has the perfect mix of fantasy, love, tragedy, betrayal, and magic--so much so that I have become addicted to reading them! The stories have amazing twists and turns you'd never expect, with a realistic ending that might make you cry.

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 "

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 a

Blood Divided is the next installment of the fantastic Soul Born series. It picks up 20 years after the events in the first book (which you really should read before reading this). We see a few characters from the first book and see how they have fared in the time since the first book, and we are introduced to the children of Opal and Tala. The plot soon develops that there is a new threat to Illyia. The characters old and new must work together to find a way to stop it. What happens is a fantas ...more

Excellent follow-up to Soul Born. Illyia has become a new place and so this is a new beginning, but ties into Soul Born well. Lots of suripises here. Great action. Some romance. Even a little something for us horror fans. You can see how Kevin's skils as an author have grown and I feel he is building up to something huge in the next book. I love how he is slowly telling the back story as he moves forward, it keeps me glued to the chair. Great job!

Another good addition to the Soul Born Saga, this book is set 20 years after Soul Born. It features 4 main characters, two sets of twins with the same father but different mothers, Tala (the elf) and Opal.(the mage)

Although the timeline is different, this book continues on seemlessly from the first due to the mix of old and new characters. Again, it is well written and what interests me is the combination of good/bad characters and the choices they make.

I didn't just enjoy it, I loved it. I had trouble putting it down. I look forward to reading "Flesh Ended". I am now an eternal fan!

Overall Rating - 3 & 1/2 Stars

ANALYSIS: Blood Divided is the sequel to Soul Born and as a book; I was a bit apprehensive as to how it would turn out to be. The preceding book was proclaimed to be a dark epic fantasy tale and promised much however didn’t quite live up to its promise for the reasons described in my review. This book however has another great cover and in this particular regard is a great follow-up to the first cover.

Blood Divided by Kevin James Breaux

Blood Divided is the sequel to Soul Born set 20 years later. Illyia has had years of peace but now political snafu is in the works. War will again be coming to the land. It centers around 2 sets of twins, one born to Opal and the other Tala. While the first book had shades of grey between good and evil the second book makes it very clear who is evil. That’s EVIL with all caps! The antagonist Nathan is a definite Blackguard or Anti-Paladin for all you gamers. Fo

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,

I really enjoyed this second book in the series. It was even better than the first. It was full of adventure,twists and turns and even some unexpected surprises. I found myself saying Whoa... I didn't see that coming... A couple of times. I would love to read book 3 to find out how it all ends. Do you have book 3 out yet? If so where can I get it? Would Amazon have it? Please let me know. Thanks for selecting me as a first reads winner of this book I truly enjoyed it and look forward to reading ...more
