YA ReviewMy Thoughts

 

Note: this is the third book in the YA  Fractured Light Series. If you are new to the series check out my thoughts on Book 1 and Book 2

I am a big fan of the Fractured Light series. The second book, Fractured Soul left off with such a sad ending that I was a little nervous to pick up this book. A good amount of time passed from from when I read book 2 to book 3 and as soon as I started reading I remembered the sad events that took place, and I was heartbroken again along side Llona. Fractured Truth has a darker feel than the first two books. Most of the characters are dealing with some kind of darkness of their own and it shaped the story. I really liked the continuing themes of light v. darkness. And what I liked most about Fractured truth was that it wasn’t so much good v. evil. The lines became blurred as each of the characters really tried to find out what was going on personally and where they would fit into this huge battle.

There were all kinds of new creatures added to the Fractured Light world. We got to meet the witches that had something to do with “the shadow” from the second book. We also got to meet some Lycans and of course there was lots of page time for the dreaded Vykens.

I love Llona. She really makes the book for me. I think she is so fiesty and she really stands up for what she believes in. But at the same time, she really embodies the goodness that Auras are known for. She just does it in a different way. I also loved seeing her interact with Liam more. I was the biggest Christian supporter in the first two books so I was wary of Liam, but we saw a completely different side to Christian in Fractured truth. Is he light or dark? That is something you will have to read to find out, but I am telling you this. You will be on the edge of your seat the whole time you are reading Fractured Truth.

It is nonstop action from the first page to the last. The book starts out by capturing an enemy by way of jumping out of a plane. How is that for starting with a bang?! The world that Rachel McClellan has created never ceased to fascinate me. I love watching the Auras powers, and I loved seeing Llona finally get to teach some of them how to defend themselves. This is not your average vampire or werewolf YA. Rachel McClellan has created a rich, detailed and UNIQUE world full of action, mystery and plenty of bad guy butt kicking. Her writing brings the world to life and she has created an impressive amount of depth in her characters and story themes. All of the books in the Fractured Light series are great. Fractured Truth is an epic conclusion, but I would love to see more from Llona in the future. I just love her.

        I can’t wait to read it! Rachel is sending me a copy of Fractured Truth, and it will look sooooo good next to the other two! I love the hardcover editions of the book 🙂
        Yes! I agree, I wish a lot more people/bloggers would take the chance and read this series.
