A Fractured Light starts out only a few days after the end of A Beautiful Dark. It comes out kicking and I was completely into it. Davies doesn't let the story start on a dull note, immediately getting into gear and I loved that. Unfortunately, after a little while, the story started to drag just a little bit. There was a lot happening, but some of it felt a little like filler. There were still important things happening, but in between those moments, there wasn't as much plot progression as I would have liked.
Thankfully, the last few chapters completely turned this novel around and had my jaw resting on the floor. There are plot twists that I didn't see coming until they were right there and I can't wait to read what comes next.
The relationship between Asher and Skye progresses, but I'm left with a strange feeling about it. Asher still gives the swoony feelings, but I'm no longer completely trusting him. Davies wrote him in such a wonderful way that even as I'm falling for his words, a tiny red flag goes up making me question the true motive behind his every word. Even with those red flags, I was still completely taken with him and his charm.
A Fractured Light was a good follow-up novel to A Beautiful Dark. There were places where it could have been better, but it was still a great read that had me constantly turning the pages. I can't wait to see how Skye's story ends.
This one picks up right where book one leaves off. I do think that they should have done what they did to someone else. Since of course there are three books there is no way that our main girl Skye could die. So that cliff hanger wasn't so bad once you think about it. Now if they would have stabbed Asher that would have been the cliff hanger from H***!!! So in book two we find out more about Skye's past as well as some VERY yummy info about someone close to her!!
"*I received a copy of this book for free to review, this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own. I also purchased books 1-3!"
The choice Skye has to make is not easy, and I love the way Davies handled it. Skye is trying to fit herself to only one side when she's clearly of both. This problem echoes in the romance as she loves Asher, but can't deny she feels something for Devin too. I would've liked more interaction between them. I thought a lot of time was wasted in the cabin. Sky didn't seem all that concerned that her aunt Jo thought she was missing or that her friend Cassie was seriously hurt. She stays there in the cabin just thinking things over and over.
Soon enough, she returns to town and then things pick up when Skye starts having visions of Devin. I thought she'd be over him after what he did during the first book, but things are never that simple. The fact is that under the Order's rule, Devin has no control over his actions. You see him struggle with this more in this sequel. His moments with Skye made me want to weep! It's so tragic. Skye feels protective of him, she still cares. Of course, this doesn't sit well with Asher. When push comes to shove, will he do what's best for Skye or the Rebellion? I'll leave that for you to read ;)
New characters are introduced in this sequel. Ardith and Gideon, both rebels, and Raven makes an appearance too.Read more ›
I am so happy with the second book, like really excited. The third book is going to be full of epic, it really is. Skye truly grows up in A Fractured Light. She grows in to her destiny and I knew where she was going all along. I didn't, however, see how things would turn out with the love triangle and I still don't. I, personally, am completely and totally on Team Devin.
I don't want to give away the obvious but you had to know after you finished A Beautiful Dark that it's impossible for the series to continue if she died so you just know she'll survive. So it really shouldn't be a spoiler or anything, especially given the summary! Because of Asher being the one to save her, they become extremely close and Devin hardly crosses her mind because really, her main focus is getting control of her dark elements. There's the problem of her light elements popping up, too...which continues the battle of will she choose the Guardians or the Rebels?
I don't know how much I can really say without spoiling a lot of things so this will be a rather vague review. Just know that I really enjoyed it, loved it to bits a pieces (even if it seemed slow to me but then again, this is probably because I am not an Asher girl). There are things that happen (closer to the end) that I didn't see coming. Things I'm assuming are coming in the third book and I can't wait to see if they're true. Oh man, I so hope they're true.

I read this book in less than a day. I had to keep going and get the next book so I could find out what happens. Don't start this book on a day that you have anything to do.Published 17 months ago by Amazon Customer
