Fractured (Slated #2) - Little M's review


Fractured by Teri Terry

Fractured is the second book in a trilogy by Teri Terry. The first novel is Slated (careful, this review of Fractured has big spoilers for Slated. You can read M's review of Slated here.).
 
***********
 
Fractured carries on from Slated which is about Kyla who has been slated. Slated is where memories get wiped from your brain.  Fractured is about Kyla finding out about her past and experiencing memories she shouldn’t have. I think this book is incredibly hard to review because I keep thinking I’m going to give away spoilers or not say enough.

Nico wasn’t a main character in Slated but in Fractured he is. Ben, who was Kyla’s boyfriend in Slated is not so important in Fractured but he does play a big role. Kyla is still trying to find him. Some characters in Slated were nice and kind but in Fractured they’re not what I expected them to be. There are new important characters in this novel. I preferred Fractured to Slated because I think the characters progressed more in this book and you find out more about the past. There’s also more action, knives, blood, and guns than there was in Slated.

Fractured was one of those books that I couldn’t put down. I liked the way it was written with flashbacks/dreams which play a massive role in the novel. This was also the case with Slated.

I think this book has lots of good points and some bad points. The good points are that a) you just can’t put the book down, b) the characters keep you hooked and you can’t wait to see what they do next (they keep you in suspense). Some bad points are that a) Ben is not a big character and Kyla misses him so it’s quite sad and b) I don’t think there are any more bad points.

Slated fans will probably like it but there is a bit more action in Fractured than in Slated.  I loved that.
