BEYOND MIDNIGHT: ASUNDER-The House of Crimson and Clover Book 3.5 by SARAH M. CRADIT

Broken and dispirited, the Deschanel family reels under the weight of a family curse. Lives were torn asunder, as their numbers diminished.

Amidst their pain, another prophecy takes shape. One laid by the ancient druidic Quinlan clan, in a time long forgotten. Seers across the family have borne witness to fragments. Distraught by the loss of her soul’s true love, Amelia begins to dream of an unknown man and a woman, designated by fate to live their story over and over again, throughout time.

Now, destiny reaches across the centuries.

In the family’s darkest hour, a reckoning with the Empyrean Senetat is fast approaching. Hope becomes the necessary consolation for grief, as the Deschanels come together to make their loved ones whole, in order to face this uncertain future as a united clan.
 
My Review:

Beyond Midnight: Asunder (House of Crimson & Clover #3.5)Beyond Midnight: Asunder by Sarah M. Cradit
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beyond Midnight: Asunder by Sarah M. Cradit is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In this latest House of Crimson and Clover installment we find the Deschanel family torn apart by a family curse which as greatly diminished their numbers. Those dealing with the pain and loss most acutely are Oz, Amelia, Jacob, and Tristan whose story is this book's main focus. Oz and Amelia are dealing with the consequences of their dream walking. Jacob is dealing with his and Amelia's breakup and Tristan is in full blown meltdown mode.
Each character will undergo life changing events before all is said and done and a new prophesy will be revealed.

As I complete each book in this series I often believe I have a clue where things are headed. I am always surprised when I open the next book and discover yet another avenue the author is taking us down. Big reveals abound and new doors are opened as well as new places to explore. The druid storyline is a new one and liked how easy that fit right in with this family. The author gives us a reprieve from the dark and heavy emotional ringer we went through in the last installment. I found this book had a healing atmosphere as each of the troubled characters featured found release, peace, new purpose and are set on the path they need to be on. It was also an epic love story in many ways. I loved that part of the story the best, since I knew deep down it was meant to be this way. As always I was completely involved with the characters and the story, and once more I read it all one sitting. Now I have to wait impatiently for the next book to come out.
