Fragments: Partials, Book 2

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?

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.

    "Kira Walker is annoying"

    I'm sorry actually, I'm not sorry but I can NOT stand Kira. That "I want/have to save the world (but really she only wants to save humans)" persona was ANNOYING!! As the book's protagonist I kept thinking when is Heron going to kill her. I LOVE Samm I loved him from the first book and as his character developed more in the second book I fell in love with him. He should have been the protagonist. The overall story was good minus Kira's annoying refusal to accept she's a partial and her constant sympathy towards humans. The way I see it there's good and bad on both the human and partial side. Although the truth came out that in fact the humans created and released RM which resulted in the near extinction of the human race her urgency of wanting to save them pissed me off. The only reason why I am even reading Ruins is because I want to know what happens to Samm along with Heron, Ariel, Marques and Xochi. I hope Kira dies in the third book, her death can result in the saving of both the human and partial race.

    Story
    "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.

    "Twice as good as the first book"

    I loved that this book was written from multiple character's perspective. Can't wait to see how it all ends in book three!!

    "Unique take on the dystopian story"

    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

    Story
    "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.

    A busy Mum and Accountant. Listen to books while driving to work or sunbathing is my guilty pleasure.

    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!

    Story
    "Keeps Gettin' Better!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fragments to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version, so I really couldn't say. I absolutely loved and the audio edition though!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fragments?

    Sigh... I have been trying to think of what to write without including a spoiler and I can't. So I'll just say this...Fragments is awesome and if you enjoyed Partials (book 1) you'll love this one even more. Superior Series!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the character Afa and really enjoyed the scenes he was in.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried many times while listening to this book. I enjoyed the first book in the series and this book is even better! I cared so much and was invested in several of the characters in this book (and series). I was very moved by their story and the choices they made.


    Any additional comments?

    I am waiting with baited breath for Book 3! March 2014 can't come soon enough...
