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 was entwined with death.
Peace has come and gone The conflicts of old have returned-rejuvenated and driven. This is the beginning of the end. The children of Karn have come of age, and now they will take part in shaping the fate of Illyia.
Will they join forces, or with blood will they be divided?
Blood Divided is book two in the Soul Born Saga.
Some things the author has said about SOUL BORN.
"Blood Divided feels like a classic princess fairy tale until I turn it on its head and cover it in blood."
"Princess Autumn cared nothing of politics until her world was turned upside down and the softness she was used to became as coarse as stone."
is how the lands of Illyia become a dark continent. Not by the swords
of thousands of men but the vengeful soul of one."
"Four children, two mothers, one father; thousands dead."
Blood Divided Reviews and Awards
SOUL BORN awarded 7th place in the 2011 P&E Reader's Poll. Results page.
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." --Arely
"The world that Breaux created is full of political intrigue, betrayal, love and loss. If youre looking for a well established world and a cast of amazing characters, then I highly recommend the Soul Born Saga." --Short & Sweet Reviews
"I read a couple of fantasy novels, but this is by far the best fantasy novel Ive read in a long time."--Short & Sweet Reviews
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!"

About the Characters - from the author:
In Blood Divided we meet Vasche, the Captain of the Royal Guard, and one of the main characters of book three in the Soul Born Saga, FLESH ENDED. Vasche loves his kingdom more than anything. For every bit loyal he is he is also skilled in combat. Vasche has become one of my favorite characters to write and develop. He seems perfect on the outside, but he is struggling with some inner demons, which will become more obvious in book three.
Princess Autumn and the Sorceress Megan are two sides of the same coin. Their differences are clear as their similarities. Most important is their story of growth in Blood Divided. Both are struggling with what they were raised to become. When Flesh Ended begins Autumn and Megan will have both lost their innocence in a new vicious world, and by doing so have reached a new level in their lives, in many ways a juxtaposition from where they were when they met in book two.
I always say this. The Soul Born Saga is as much the tragic tale of Opal as it is a story of survival for Tala.
