...a satisfying and enjoyable sci-fi/fantasy novel. McKevitt develops anintricate universe where parallel worlds are connected by a fracture.One world is the modern world as we know it and the other world isfilled with kings, clans, and magic. McKevitt creates original beingswho live in the magic world, especially creepy are the Couton, creatures who feast on your memories.
Mixing a perfect blendof lively characters, action, and adventure with a touch of mysterythrown in, Fracture is a page-turning story not to be missed.
From the Author
McKevitt says; "FRACTURE, is a fantasy that is set in two worlds, one similar in ways to medieval times, the other in present day small town America. Fracture not only represents the separation of two worlds but a deeper look into the lives of a man who kills for a living and a young woman who realizes her life has a different path, one that entangles them both in a destiny neither will be able to walk away from."
4.0 out of 5 stars Fracture (The Secret Enemy Saga) by Virginia McKevitt, April 17, 2012 By Karen Doering "Parent's Little Black Book" (Clarkston, WA USA) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME)
This review is from: Fracture (Kindle Edition) The Kingdom of Potwain is a parallel universe to our own. They believe in separation for the good of both universes. A very interesting new world well thought out and described. How they maintain that separation is the main premise at the start of this story. In order to keep the two worlds from interacting they must send someone to our world, a man with many skills to keep the two worlds apart. How he interacts with the inhabitants of our world is interesting and compelling.
I enjoyed the separate world created within the Kingdom of Potwain and the inhabitants. It was an interesting new world and the only thing I was disappointed in was that we didn't learn more about this world. Hopefully in the next of the series we will.
Ms. McKevitt has created a YA novel with interesting and complex characters who relate to each other well. The storyline is good and flows well. The dialogue was realistic and moved the story forward well. The action scenes played out with good descriptions so the reader is able to imagine what is happening. The book is well written and is appropriate to the targeted age group and audience.
Overall this is a very good book that addresses many issues young people have without a "preachy" attitude within the context of a great action packed and fun story.
I've had this book on my to be read list for awhile and resisted reading it as it's not really my genre. However, the story is compelling and an exciting adventure with characters I learned to care about. Thank goodness there are two more books in the series!
A smartly accomplished and compelling plot! Talent and imagination meet technique in the unlikeliest of places.... the "Fracture" between two worlds.
The characters are driven by McKevitt's own hand. Built by her obvious vivid imagination you will come to know them personally. They will pull you in to the story not chapter by chapter but paragraph by paragraph.
McKevitt's writing style is freshly surprising and flourishes with touches of realism that make the "Secret Enemy Saga" a double edged tale that lingers long after the last word is read.
McKevitt's thought processes are well formed and believable. Maybe too believable.
The ending left me wanting more ...... Thankfully, Book 2 is in the works! Keep writing McKevitt!
Good story but....While I understand this is a fantasy it should still have a reality. I found it beyond belief that the humans that met the "Lion Man" immediately accepted him & they instantly trusted him & became friends. The heroine loses her parents and appears to be hardly affected by the loss except to want revenge. There's no funeral - just an immediate journey with Lion Man. While the town of Blessing is supposed to be a small town there's almost no information on the town or other residents. The story is interesting & compelling and I will most likely purchase the next in the series as the writer does leave you wanting to learn more about the parallel kingdom & the characters.
Fracture is such an awesome read! I love the characters! Virginia has brought them to life & they are so real. Tegrin & Kristina is just drawn together so that you can see they are soul mates, meant to be together forever! I love the plot to this book it has a twist that kept me rivited to this book where I had a hard time putting it down. Even before I read book 2, The Hunted, I could tell this series had become one of my favorites! It`s a story that captivating! Couldn`t wait to start book 2
Fracture: The Secret Enemy Saga by Virginia McKevitt
Review of Fracture: 4/12/12
With this book set in a parallel universe I found myself being drawen into this new mystical world created by Virginia and also by the characters as well. To be honest I found myself stunned by the amount of description within this book that brings forth the story as if it were a movie before my eyes. With the story taken place in the Kingdom of Potwain and the motive that drives her characters, Virgina has created a world all her own filled with action, adventure, and a little bit of romance.
More then once I found myself on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen next. The attraction of this book draws you in word by word and will make you not to want to put it down before you finish turning to the last page. I fell in love not only with her story, but her characters and you can't put a price on that.
Another great, one of a kind book that will leave you breathless with rapture. At least for now...!
