Publisher's Summary

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 11th 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.

    "Action Packed! A great Dystopian read!!"
    Where does Fragments rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely in the top 20 or so


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fragments?

    Finding what was in Denver. ( <----- Purposefully vague so not to give away spoilers)


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

    I haven't, but after reading this series I will go see her other work.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In a war between whats left of Humanity and the dying Partials, their only hope is each other; Will they work together to save whats left of mankind or destroy everything?


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a great continuity of its previous book. I like how she switches between characters, letting us know what is going on inside and outside of Long Island. I feel like this is very similar to the Divergent series, being that Kira is a lot like Tris. In Divergent Tris was constantly trying to give her life for the cause and Kira is doing the same thing. At every turn you find her saying she will sacrifice herself. I can't help but worry that it will end like Divergent, which will devastate me. I am currently about 1/4 into the last book, and my anxiety is getting to me. I'm so nervous that Kira or Samm is going to die I can barely stand it. This book for sure keeps you on the edge of your seat. I have grown bored with a lot of the predictable YA novels; and while this one is predictable at times, they still throw quite a few curve balls in.

    "A Huge Improvement Over the First Book"

    I thought the first Partials book was good but too drawn out. This sequel had some drawn out parts towards the middle, but for the most part each chapter had me excited for my next time in the car to hear what happens next.

    I would suggest listening at 1.5x speed.

    "A nice listen"

    I really like the author's ability to build a story. From plot to history, to culture, to character personalities.

    You could definitely tell that this is somewhat of a "in between" book laying the groundwork for the last(?) book in the series.

    I was very glad and impressed to hear Whelan vary the voices a lot more in this book than the previous one and her performance is -as always- perfect. I love the way she reads it and how she brings the characters to life.

    I did quite enjoy the storyline, however at times it felt like the author was dragging it out a bit and some parts just felt...as if they were meat fillers. As always he does a great job of writing characters that you like, dislike, love, hate etc. One thing that really struck me is his ability to keep a levelled, realistic balance between good and evil and hypocrisy in his characters. Nothing is ever just good or bad and even the characters best intentions can be compared to the "baddies" bad intentions. This is an admirable skill the author has!

    The only thing I disliked in this book is how the main protagonist becomes very annoying in this book. Half the time I had to think really hard to try and understand how she felt and why she was on the verge of tears half the time. There were however some really interesting, likeable characters introduced into this book and overall I did enjoy both the story and the performance.

    Has enough unexpected twists to keep one interested. I do hate it cliffhanger though so you will definitely need to have access to the last book

    "Not as exciting as the first..."

    I loved Partials and was excited to listen to this 2nd book, but to be honest I never made it to the end. It felt like the story was going nowhere. It was a lot of the same old, same old. 3/4 of the way through and they were nowhere closer to figuring out anything. I'm all for suspense, but you've got to give me at least a little something to keep me going. I finally gave up on actually learning anything for the story moving forward. Disappointing as Partials I loved so much I had on my ipad for reading and on audible to listen to.

    Story
    "Typical middle book - left you hanging"
    Where does Fragments rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a typical middle book. It gave you enough storyline to answer some of the questions and left you hanging at the last chapter.
    The storyline of the journey to Denver was predicable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dan Wells? Why or why not?

    I will listen to final book only to finish off the series. I'm sure the story could be completed in two books instead of three.


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

    Julia once again gave a great preformance.


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

    I did listen to this book over a period of a week, unlike the first book I don't think I will be relistening to it again.

    "Cool story, nice change of pace for YA"
    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I noticed strange with this second book is that the book introduces a new character, Afa but the narrator all of a sudden started speaking Haru's lines like she does Afa's lines. I think Haru is Japanese and in this book he has a strange accent that's definitely NOT Japanese. Other than that little thing the books are great!

    An excellent trilogy which does not stop being exciting and adventurous. Even though it is the second book in the series, it is just as gripping as the first (if not more so).

    "Wow, this series just gets better and better!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fragments to be better than the print version?

    As I have only listened to these books on Audible I cannot comment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    After the first book I couldn't see how this book was going to continue the storyline from book 1 Partials ... Oh I didn't need to worry it got better and better with more twists and more turns.
    You meet new characters and learn more about the different characters you met in book one.
    I love the strong female roles in these books not to mention the determination of Keira Walker.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As in the first book Julia Whelan brings a delightfully clear reading voice with the just the right amount of feelings.


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

    Oh yes I had to set an alarm as I relaxed and became totally immersed in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I hadn't read or listened to any books quite like this before apart from Partials book one and I'm loving them.

    I'm off to get book three!
