Fragments ( Partials #2)
by Dan Wells
Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence--it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?
Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed.
The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity's time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means--and even more important, a reason--for our survival.
Kira has found the cure to RM and several things about her she didn't know. She now goes on a journey to find out more about who she is and more about te partials. She wants to find out more about what caused RM in hopes that it may just save the humans and partials both. She has people from both sides looking for her as she just may hold the key to the cure. Meanwhile Marcus is still on Long Island. Things are heating up on the island as the Partials are set to move in to find Kira and they won't allow any humans to stand in their way. He has to leave to find help and that help just may come from Partials. They both soon leran there is many secrets they have yet to find and several may just change their lives forever.
Kira has always been a strong girl but to me she really comes into her own in this book. She struggles to figure out just how she feels about her self and she tries to find a way to save both Partials and Humans. She has to make several hard choices in this book and she really grows from them. She never really knows who to trust and has to always watch her back. Above all she does the best she can to help everyone even when she is told she will have to pick a side. Even knowing the truth could hurt her she still works to find out things. Marcus is quite a bit better in this book as he steps up and tries to hold things together. He goes into danger knowing he could be killed just to help the humans even if that means he may have to go against some of those humans. Samm I really enjoyed in this book. He is out to help Kira and has a hard time talking to her. You get to really see inside his head and what his feelings are in this book.
I really enjoyed Partials and I enjoyed Fragments just as much. You really get to see more of the world these people live in and how it may have come to be the way it is. Lots of secrets are revealed many that shocked me and I didn't see the twist coming. In this sequel you get more of a depth for the characters. Many of whom you never really know what side they are on. By side I mean good or evil not Human and Partial. To me you really see both sides of the fractions in this sequel. The author does such a fantastic job sucking you in with the plot and everything you really don't want it to end. Even if you don't like dystopian books I would recommend you try this series. It has tons of action and you never know what will happen.The world create and characters will keep you on the edge of your seat. The only bad thing I have to say about this book is After the ending I can not wait to the next one. I have to know what happens next. I don't dare to guess cause the author has a wonderful way of surprising you.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy for review.
