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.

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
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.
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.
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.
Julia once again gave a great preformance.
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.
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!
Always looking for my next great listen...
I did not read the print version, so I really couldn't say. I absolutely loved and the audio edition though!!
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!!
I loved the character Afa and really enjoyed the scenes he was in.
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.
I am waiting with baited breath for Book 3! March 2014 can't come soon enough...
I would say it ranks about mid-range. I liked it, but not sure I would re-listen to it again.
Probably when Kiera got to see the newborns, you could feel her heart swelling!
Same goes for question before.
Post- apocalyptic thriller!
I use audiobooks as means of an escape from reality. Nice to just relax with a book. Ienjoy a very eclectic array of genres...anywhere from chick lit romance to mystery to science ft. Just a common mother of three.
I love Julia Whelan. I have a medical background so this was not at all slow for me. The twists and turns, just when you think you know what's going on, just great. This world is just frighteningly real. Possible. Just so good. I haven't written many reviews lately but I really enjoyed this! A whole lot better than divergent series, in my opinion.
SO MANY GOOD ONES! Love. Sam, kira, heron(for some reason)...oh my efah was such a hilarious character, off much.
I love to check out her books, worst case scenario you get a well performed story. She's great.
I did, when it ended, I know it was a great book when you are just in shock and crazy the Tories go through your head, and that's all you can think about for hours. Also left feeling empty, like a breakup.
I usually prefer women authors for these types of books because their relationships are usually stronger, but Dan Wells really hit all emotion spot on! I will definitely be checking out any new books. Last thought, I am 32, so this was pretty mature, not whiny or childish. Loved it. Cannot wait for Ruins.
