ASUNDER and PRODIGY release today!

Oh wow, guys—how AMAZING is it that we have not one, but TWO books launching from Pub(lishing) Crawlers today? (And with such stunning covers, too!)


Needless to say, we are buzzing with excitement (and pride! So much pride for our authors!). It’s an incredible accomplishment to launch a book, and it’s just as incredible, challenging, and HUGE to release a second. We at Pub(lishing) Crawl are just so thrilled to have Jodi Meadows and Marie Lu on our team!

To celebrate this AWESOME day, we’re giving away shiny new copies of Asunder and Prodigy! We’ll also be featuring a special author-focused post later today. So stay tuned!


Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.

Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.

In this second book in the Incarnate trilogy, Ana discovers the truth about reincarnation and will have to find a way to embrace love and make her young life meaningful.


June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

Are you guys AS THRILLED as we are? (Because you should be—you really should be!) Well, don’t miss out on your chance to win copies of these books! Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below, and head back here later on for PART 2 in today’s Happy Hour release festivities!

    In both the characters kept me really caring, really emotionally invested in the story, and in both the world-building was perfect – made sense, was unique, and a perfect place for the story:)
