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.
Book Review: 1/2
I sort of have an addiction to this series, despite the fact that I never rate it very highly. There is something about reading things that are incredibly plausible that keep you entertained with a rather desperate curiosity. Fractured is the second book in the Slated series and it does not disappoint.
The world is incredibly interesting, which is why I have been devouring these books despite other reviews that question the levels of engagement in this series. I truly think Teri Terry has really built a world that is plagued with just the right amount of realism and with the ever lovely hint of make believe.
In Fractured we are exposed to more of the Loarders world, but we also get to see from the Free UK or the deemed terrorists. The fact that Kyla’s memory was purposefully jumbled so that she was able to hide particular personalities was fascinating. Whether correct or not, I became enthralled with the possibility of conditioning a new personality into a person so that it could be hidden due to how our memories are stored.
The problem that I had with Slated was that it felt a bit long and the characters didn’t really hold my attention. Fractured doesn’t escape from the first books qualities, in my opinion. I was frustrated that a heavy emphasis was placed on a relationship that I didn’t feel anything towards in the first book. And, although I must admit it, there was no love triangle! And I think this one desperately needs one. There was a small essence of possibility at various occasions, but to no avail.
I do believe I will continue with this series, only one more book to go! And I am sort of desperate to see how everything pans out.
Have you read this one? What did you think?
