    "better than the 1st book! Unusual YA"

    This is the rare second book in a series that improved upon the first book. My favorite part of the first book was the setting in realms of afterlife (aka Circles of Hell) that was unique with a interesting demonic "bad guy" to fight, and the romance story seemed really cliched and trite. The second book thrusts our characters to a modern day high school setting and that worked for me much better. There is still the higher stakes and the demonic bad guys to fight. It becomes a riff on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. There is better banter and more humor. The secondary characters are more fleshed out than in the first book and helped me have a greater emotional response to this book. The action is fast and believable. Our heroine gets to be quite the badass fighter. The romance seemed more believable and progresses through interesting maturation through the book, and seems to be at an appropriate level of importance in this more usual setting.

    Fine wrote a smooth, action-packed story with a lot of suspense and danger. This is a better meld of the high school genre with its inherent YA romance aspect than the previous book's dire fantastical setting did. The book is supplemented nicely with a unique paranormal plotline to add interest, tension, and lots of action.

    Audiobook note: Malachi's accent is awful. But the rest of the narration was solid. Nice emphasis during action sequences.

    If you could sum up Fractured in three words, what would they be?

    A great book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fractured?

    My favorite scene is when Malachi tells Lela how he feels after she gets hit by the van.


    Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Amy does a great job narrating this book. I've enjoyed listening to several other books read by her.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm dying for the next book to be released.

    As a visually impaired person), it has always been difficult for me to read books in print, but Audible makes books enjoyable again!

    "Slow start, but great read!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fractured the most enjoyable?

    The story was slow going at first but it really picks up. It definitely had it's share of twists and turns.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sarah Fine? Why or why not?

    YES! I WANT GUARDS OF THE SHADOWLANDS BOOK 3!!!


    What does Amy McFadden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's very good at portraying the teenage attitudes of the characters, both when she narrates the thoughts of the main character and when she reads the words of others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Not until it picked up, that is.
