Publisher's Summary

In the week since Lela returned to Rhode Island, local news has been dominated by chilling sightings of human-like creatures running on all fours. Lela knows there's only one explanation: The Mazikin have arrived in the land of the living.

Needing to maintain the appearance of a normal life, Lela returns to Warwick High along with Malachi. At night they hunt for the Mazikin nest along with two new Guards. Jim, one rogue recruit, repeatedly challenges Lela's authority. Lela struggles to keep all her Guards on the right side of the law, but their mistakes come at a terrible cost.

As one painful revelation follows another, and the Mazikin start targeting those closest to her, Lela finds herself more vulnerable than ever. With an enemy determined to separate soul from body, Lela must decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect those she loves.

    "Just as good as the first"

    Just as good ad the first. A wicked twist at the end that made me want to kill the Mazikan (sp?) myself. Auuuuggghhhhh!

    Onto the 3rd!

    Side note. At 45, I never thought I'd enjoy teenagers books. So glad I am wrong on this one!

    Story
    "High school can be hell."

    It was okay for a second book, but I didn't quite like it as well as the first book. There was a little bit too much teenage angst for me. I didn't like the way the relationship went with Lela and Malaki, it eventually resolved itself, sorta. I don't mind teenage stories, but sometimes they are just a little to juvenile for me. I feel that if the author had not focused so much effort on the high school part of the book the story would have been much better. First book was way better and I suspect the third book will be too. I like the creativity with the different versions of hell and I probably will listen to the next book. Narrator is good.

    "better than the 1st book! Unusual YA"

    This is the rare second book in a series that improved upon the first book. My favorite part of the first book was the setting in realms of afterlife (aka Circles of Hell) that was unique with a interesting demonic "bad guy" to fight, and the romance story seemed really cliched and trite. The second book thrusts our characters to a modern day high school setting and that worked for me much better. There is still the higher stakes and the demonic bad guys to fight. It becomes a riff on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. There is better banter and more humor. The secondary characters are more fleshed out than in the first book and helped me have a greater emotional response to this book. The action is fast and believable. Our heroine gets to be quite the badass fighter. The romance seemed more believable and progresses through interesting maturation through the book, and seems to be at an appropriate level of importance in this more usual setting.

    Fine wrote a smooth, action-packed story with a lot of suspense and danger. This is a better meld of the high school genre with its inherent YA romance aspect than the previous book's dire fantastical setting did. The book is supplemented nicely with a unique paranormal plotline to add interest, tension, and lots of action.

    Audiobook note: Malachi's accent is awful. But the rest of the narration was solid. Nice emphasis during action sequences.

    If you could sum up Fractured in three words, what would they be?

    A great book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fractured?

    My favorite scene is when Malachi tells Lela how he feels after she gets hit by the van.


    Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Amy does a great job narrating this book. I've enjoyed listening to several other books read by her.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm dying for the next book to be released.
