Book Description

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. But she never felt ready to face them---until now. Defying the Auran Council and everything she's been taught, Llona must learn to use her power over light as a weapon if she wants to survive.


Editorial Reviews

Review

The first emotion that I felt when I started reading Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan was...sadness. From the very opening of the story, I felt sad. I could feel the sorrow and sense of loss that main character Llona Reese goes through at the funeral/cemetery. It was at this point that I knew that this was going to be a promising read. If the author is already able to conjure up this emotion in a matter of a few pages, I knew that there was only more to come. I really enjoyed how McClellan introduces the characters in Fracture Light. Their interactions with each other were so addictive to follow. You could already see the budding relationships forming, which is always exciting to watch unfold. And of course, a Young Adult book is never complete without at least ONE character to hate...enter Brian. I mean, what a jerk! How he talks to Llana made me clench my teeth. Again, another sign that this was going to be a great read. EMOTIONS! McClellan does such a great job developing her characters throughout the book. You could really imagine them all as real people, not just an imaginary person in a book. Love, love her writing style. I found that McClellan s concept of light very interesting and that it reminded me just a little bit of Buffy The Vampire Slayer s sister Dawn, who was the key disguised as a human. For those of you who were die hard Buffy fans, you ll understand what I mean once you read the book. I love those stories of you can t always see what s staring you in the face type stories. My mind went on different tangents throughout the book trying to decipher who knew what/who Llana was...like I was playing detective, but one who didn t finger the right culprit. Good thing I m not really a detective! Reading about the dark figure was totally creeping me out! There aren t that many books out there anymore that can creep me out, but Fractured Light was among the few that did. It probably didn t help that I m home alone most nights, up wayyyy late reading in the almost dark, alone...hearing noises...feeling eyes watching me...eep! McClellan is such great story teller. She provides the reader with such vivid descriptions of this shadow creeper, that this book was seriously giving me a complex. I really felt like something or someone was watching me! This is such a fantastic, suspenseful read! Each chapter will keep you guessing until the very end, when everything you ve been questioning is finally revealed. I encourage everyone who loves a good paranormal suspense read to give Fractured Light a read. You won t be disappointed, and maybe...JUST maybe, you ll be looking over your shoulder every so often, or peeking at your window for a shadowy creeper... like I was! --Chapter by Chapter

"The publisher isn't lying about that 'edge of your seat' stuff. This is seriously addictive reading. Believe me, if you like YA paranormal romance, you'll be hooked. ['Fractured Light'] offers a new take on vampire-like creatures and introduces some fresh and imaginative paranormal ethnicities while allowing the characters to struggle against the dangers of power lust and societal bigotry." -- Serena Chase, USA Today --USA Today

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Fun Read February 24, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I found myself reading Fractured Light late into the middle of the night, telling myself I'm almost finished just a few more pages. I really enjoyed this book despite the fact that it followed your typical Paranormal YA story line of where there is a girl who has powers but is hiding it, a guy who falls in love with her and she with him but they are forbidden to be together and of course the dangerous enemy. I loved the uniqueness of the Auras, the characters were very likable and it was all incredibly fast paced that I couldn't help but love Fractured Light.

I loved Llona's character especially when she burst out of her shell and refused to be weak and scared of the Vyken and took control of her life. I really found the Light to be very interesting and am interested to see what more Llona learns about the Light and how her powers will grow in the upcoming book. Another person I really loved was May I thought it was pretty awesome how McClellan made Llona's closest friend an undiscovered fury. I can't wait for the second book to see how their friendship develop and really hope we get to see more of what May can do as well.

I also liked Christian, I wasn't a fan of the mixed signals he gave Llona but at the same time I can see why he was so conflicted. I 'm interested to see how things develop with the two.

Another thing that I found very predictable was knowing who the Vyken was. It was very obvious from the moment the character appeared although I wanted to think otherwise because I figured it couldn't be that simple. Nonetheless it didn't take away from the plot for me in a twisted way I actually was interested to read how the antagonist toyed with Llona.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great YA book - Kept me guessing February 11, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I really enjoyed this YA novel. Something about Llona drew me in from the beginning. She is living with her Uncle as her parents were killed (at different times) by a Vyken. A Vyken hunts Auras because if they drink the blood of an Aura then they can walk in day light. Problem is, you don't really know who they are. All that Llona knows is that she thinks one has found her, probably the one that killed her parents, and she is tired of running.

All the way through this novel I kept asking myself - is it him? or is it him? It wasn't until the very end that we find out for sure who the Vyken is that is after her. But upon learning that secret, we also learn another secret - one that I don't think Llona really processed at the end of this story, but I am sure will show up in the next book.

I really liked Christian and Llona's relationship too. It would be so hard to hold back from a first love, especially when you are sure they have feelings for you too. I like the way that they learned about each other and from each other. I have a feeling that Christian will show up in another book as well.

Llona could do some very creative and interesting things as she learns to manipulate her Light. I can't wait to see what she will do in the future! One of the things that I really liked about this book is that it really kept me guessing. I sort of knew who the Vyken was, but had no idea what he was going to do next. I didn't see the ending coming at all - but it was pretty cool!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Addicting Read! Highly Recommend! February 5, 2012
Format:Hardcover
This was my first ever book I got to read via netgalley, so I was really excited. I first heard about FRACTURED LIGHT on a contest with goodreads, I believe? Since then, I've really wanted to read it. The description sounded interesting and the cover made me that much more interested in reading it. I had to read this on my computer because I didn't have a kindle at the time but let me tell you, once I started reading this, it didn't matter. I finished it in a matter of hours...I just couldn't stop reading it. (It seems like I say that a lot, doesn't it?) But it's the truth - there are so many books that I read that just draw me in and don't want to let me go.

This book is about good versus evil, a very typical thing, right? We meet Llona (which I just LOVE this name, by the way) who has lost both her mother and her father so she now lives with her Uncle who is only about ten years older than her, so he's more like an older brother. Llona is an Aura, just like her mother. Aura's carry the light and they're only female. The darkness, or evil, that hunts Aura's to kill them are called Vyken's - which also killed her parents. But now there's one haunting her...

Llona is so different from any other Aura, including her mother. Aura's don't fight and they never have the urge to fight but Llona wants to fight, she feels it in her blood. She wants to learn how to use the light as a weapon. The amount of willpower and fight Llona has is very encouraging. Woman empowerment. I've read a lot of YA books and I have to say, she would be one of my top role models, if I had to choose.

Christian, a new boy at school suddenly becomes someone of interest not just for the reader but for Llona. But so does the brand new math teacher Mr.
