5.0 out of 5 stars Divided 5 December 2014
By M. Smith - Published on
When I find a character I like, I want the best for them. I want them to grow, to love, to live. I want them to discover strength within while acknowledging their limitations, faults, doubts, and pasts. For me, it's important that all aspects of a character's life be examined as deeply as possible. If not, their actions don't make sense and might seem self-serving.

Mellea comes into her own in this story. She proves her worth as a friend, a fighter, a lover, and a bride. Taken by her MECH father at the end of Bound, I was happy to discover he had a greater-good reason for taking her because he put her in contact with Dreya, relative to the Guardians and rebel leader against the MECHs. It was shocking to discover the bride of a Guardian was a MECH, even more shocking to learn she's related to the psycho woman leading the MECH armies, the Doctor. Dreya and the Doctor give new meaning to familial animsoity.

Leo changed a lot from Bound and I loved what I read about him. The most interesting was his devotion to Livolism, the belief every person has a spirit watching over and guiding them toward their destiny. (While the multiple mentions of Livolism might not seem significant to some, it is actually very relevant as Mellea discovers the hidden power of her water gem.) Leo didn't at all strike me as a free-will devotee of anything; he was unbelievably crass and rude and spoiled in Bound. His firm belief in Livolism was shocking and exciting. I loved reading what he had to say about it, and I loved his willingness to share it with Mellea.

I have to admit that the dysfunction amongst the Guardians really threw me. Bound hinted at discord but I chalked it up to spoiled children acting like spoiled children. Divided provided so much Guardian history and showed the discord in the Montarus family could ultimately be their undoing as well as what keeps them from taking back their home from the MECHs. I was happy that Dreya came along and helped set things to right in their family. After all everyone had been through, the peace that came with being and working together to achieve a common goal was a breath of fresh air.

There is so much I loved about this story. Not just the characters but the situations they were in. Emotions ran high and fast. Dialogue moved naturally and conveyed the unspoken extremely well. Bound had me falling in love with a YA series. Divided had me wanting more of it. Ms. Stevens' series about Guardians and MECHs is worth more than a passing glance or a quick read through. It should be savored, read slowly, and thoroughly enjoyed by the reader. I can't wait for the next book in this series, Ms. Stevens. I know you won't disappoint.

MECH's have taken over and the Guardian's have been dispersed. Mellea, who was finally coming to terms with being a bride to a Successor and finding her place with Leo, has been taken to a secret, underground location by her father. Mellea wakes up to an unknown world, her father has been turned into a MECH, but is trying to fight against the MECH woman who rose up against the Guardians, she calls herself Doctor. The Doctor has connections to the Guardians and has found a way to neutralize their powers. While in the underground facility one of the MECH's is trying to help by creating a serum to return the powers to the Guardians. Mellea must get the serum to the Guardians and make them believe in themselves enough to save their land and the people who look up to them.

An exciting, fast-paced sequel to Bound; I couldn't wait to see what happened after the cliffhanger! Mellea came into her own in Divided, finding strength within herself. Even though she wanted to do nothing more than escape from the Tower walls before, now she is doing everything within her power to restore the Guardians and herself to the Tower once more. Luckily, Mellea's water pendant survived with her, and she finds out that she can do amazing things with it. I enjoyed getting to learn more about the Guardian faith, Livolism, as Mellea develops her powers. Once Mellea finds the rest of the Guardian's and is reunited with Leo, Mellea becomes responsible for helping them realize that they must fight the MECH's. Drama unfolds as family ties within the MECH world are revealed. It was nice to learn the backstory behind many of the Guardians and their brides; Leo's history is revealed, helping to crack some of his outer shell. What I liked most is that Mellea and Leo are still working on their relationship through most of the story, no insta-love for them and no worries of a love triangle. I can't wait to see what happens next!
