on April 27, 2012 :
Having read Embattled, I looked forward to reading about Em again as she was reincarnated as Jasmine Wade Berdin in Darlene Jones’ sequel, Empowered. I was not disappointed. The new Em (Jasmine) was comfortably familiar to me, yet completely new and refreshing. Jaz is beautiful, intelligent, and full of surprises.
Something tells her that she has been singled out by powers beyond her control, to do good works and fulfill a mission on Earth. To help her do this, she must find her soulmate.
The rub is that Yves, her otherworldly controller, is in love with her himself. I felt huge empathy for Yves although he and Jaz are literally worlds apart.
The author intertwines the lives of the characters in such a way that we feel just as comfortable reading about “the beings” as we do about the Earth characters. You’ll find action, suspense, and human relationships developed and woven into a story you won’t want to put down. Jones’ challenge must have been to make the story end in a way that was satisfying to everyone, and she accomplishes this very skilfully.
