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...
In the sequel to Slated, Fractured is just as thrilling, if not more so than its predecessor. Kyla's memories begin to come back bit by bit and she will have to find a common ground from who she was to who she is now, given everything she knows and what she has been through to get to this point.
I've always felt a lot of first books are an intro to a series, and so it's understandable why there wasn't a ton of action that happened in Slated, but that changes come to this book. Kyla knows so much more than what she did, is not as blind to information than she once was, and it helps her as she journeys through this next arc of a story.
Not only is this about Kyla discovering more about who she is and the things she did, the role she played throughout the last few years, but she is determined to find her love, Ben who was taken and slated before she has had the chance to get to him. She'll need to find and help him remember who he is, and who she is.. That is a not an easy task to be achieved and she'll need the help of others if she wants to pull this off.
Teri has a way of world building that makes you want to read and read to discover every little bit of information she has to offer. Her characters in this series are compelling, full of depth and understanding. The world she brings us into this crazy world and it makes you feel like in another universe, it could be our world instead. It's close to home with realistic concepts. I am always fascinated by the things that go on, the things we discover and characters we meet.
This was another great installment. I look forward to the final conclusion coming 2014.
