I am very excited to be part of Rachel McClellan's Fractured Soul tour. Fractured Soul is the sequel to Fractured Light. I highly recommend reading book one before starting Fractured Soul. and right now you can buy Fractured Light, book one, for $2.99 on Amazon.com.
Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her newfound friends and home, but the dark plot that is threatening Lucent Academy, a school that's supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat. This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page
In Fractured Soul Llona is at
studying and learning about her Aura history. Because her Aura education is so
behind she feels out of place and alone. She doesn’t like the way the other
Aura’s behave and is having a hard time fitting in. I don’t want to say much
more because I’m afraid I will spoil the book for you. Lucent Academy
It had been 12 months since I read the first book, Fractured Light, and I had forgotten a lot of the story. After reading a few chapters all the details of the first book came back to me, but you really need to read the first book to understand what is going on.
The good news is that Fractured Soul doesn’t have second book syndrome. (When book one is awesome and book two is fire fodder) I think book two Fractured Soul is much better than book one. That being said I liked book one as well - the series is just getting stronger. (Read my thoughts on book one Fractured Light here.)
Fractured Soul had me so engrossed in the story I forgot it was dinner time and furthermore I didn’t care! I wanted to keep reading. I found myself needing to skip ahead in the story so I could satisfy the book hunger I was having. That gave me enough satisfaction that I could be a productive member of society and make some pancakes for dinner – a go to dinner for nights when I am engrossed in a good book.
What I liked:
That Llona made friends, fought for them and learned more about herself and her history as an Aura.
What I like MOST about this story is that it is a very good book AND it is clean. Free from swearing and sex. There is violence but nothing too graphic. Fractured Soul is about choosing good over evil and fighting for what you believe in until the very end.
I liked the introduction of new characters in Fractured Soul. They were not a distraction like some secondary characters can be, they enriched the story.
What I didn't like:
I liked it all.
Who would I recommend Fractured Soul to?
Anyone 14 and up that enjoys supernatural powers. While the Vyken are not vampires they are vampire like so vampire fans may enjoy this series.
PG, like I said, no swearing no sex.
I give Fractured Soul five skulls. It is exciting, fast and doesn't have second book syndrome that most sequels have. Llona is an Auran Superhero who is battling the raging war of good verse evil, in the world, and in her soul.
Rachel McClellan was born and raised in
a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When she's not in her
writing lair, she's partying with her husband and four crazy, yet lovable,
children. Rachel's love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first
possessed the night. For when the lights went out, her imagination painted a
whole new world. And what a scary world it was... Idaho

Fractured Light Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.
As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
