Book summary: 
How do you know where to go when you don't remember where you came from?
Kyla's memory has been erased,
her personality wiped blank,
her memories lost for ever.
Or so she thought.
Kyla shouldn't be able to remember anything. But she can - and she's beginning to realise that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she's on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes...
Set in a disturbing future world, FRACTURED is an engrossing, fast-paced read that establishes Teri Terry as a master thriller writer.
       With all middle books or second books in series I've noticed some pattern, but mostly this happens in dystopians. While in the first book the whole idea is presented and you need to wrap your mind around something, second books leaves you to connect all the smaller things and mostly to get to know the main character and other characters too. This one follows that patter.

        While in the first book you get the whole idea of Slated was nicely presented in the first book and what I mostly like about this series is that's really believable. We got to meet Kyla better here and we get to meet not only her present but her past as well. After being Slated she got a new opportunity to get a new life and start all over. With appearance of some new characters, meaning Nico something changed inside of her. She started to remember, but at the same time she is not supposed to. That brings memory of another self Lucy and that past life and another person she once were - a fighter Rain. Kyla has to be all three and she has to balance herself not to be suspicious. It might sound complicated but it really isn't as the author managed to pull out that idea nicely so that you don't get confused. With all that, the whole idea of fighting back, she has another burden to carry - Ben. It still hurts not to know what happened but she is determinate to find out. Only the things is that the truth might hurt her even more.

        At the time when a lot of series suffer from middle-book syndrome Fractured continued with the same light it started in Slated. You'll enjoy while discovering the bigger picture and the inner characters. Now it's time to get the final show in Shattered and whit that title I can't wait to see more.

Rating: 5 stars.

Until the next time,

  2. OH, I absolutely LOVE when this happens! I hate when the middle book in a trilogy - which really has the potential the be the strongest - is weak, so to see a middle book done right is always a pleasure. I haven't read this series yet, though I certainly plan on picking it up soon. I'm thrilled you like it, Tanja! Great review! :)

  4. I haven't read this series, but I have been curious. good to know you loved the second book, because people do seem to find the 2nd in a series rather slow/unneeded.

    1. It wasn't as action packed as the first one though but I like that as I got to understand the history better :)

  5. I haven't read a dystopian series in a while. I would have said novel... but usually they're all at least trilogies, right? :) This one sounds good if you say the second book is just as exciting as the first one. Great review!

  6. I thought it was a good sequel too! I was expecting more action, but in the end I was okay with the not having that much of it. Looking forward to the final book now. ^^

  7. It's always such a relief when a middle book is as strong as the first. I liked how believable Staled was and am glad to hear we get that same sense in Fractured. So glad you enjoyed this, Tanja. Lovely review!

  16. Wow, you are so right about that pattern, Tanja! I'm thinking back over other dystopian series and your analysis is pretty spot-on. I'm glad you loved this second book and that it didn't let you down--I really must read the first one sometime.
