“With what I did yesterday, I should be dead: zapped by the chip they put in my brain when I was Slated.” Kyla shouldn’t remember anything from before she was Slated, but dark secrets of her past will not stay buried. Caught in a tug of war between Lorder oppression and the fight for freedom, her past and present race towards a collision she may not survive. While her desperate search for Ben continues, who can she trust in this world of secrets and lies?
Overview *Contains Spoilers*
This was an amazing second book in the Slated trilogy! I often find that books in a series decrease in quality but Teri Terry’s writing still manages to capture my attention right from the word go. If you enjoyed “Slated” you will adore this book. It’s packed with more action than the first and Kyla begins to learn that not everyone is as they first appear. She matures in herself, and there is a definite progression in the development of her character between the first and the second book, and even throughout Fractured. She starts off as a girl who doesn’t know who she is and then learns of her identity before she was Slated. She also begins to think for herself, rebelling against what she has been told “Rain” would do.
Kyla is forced to take sides in this non-stop action thriller and although it is constantly packed with action right from the first page, the last few chapters are paced perfectly. They force you to continue reading as you want to know what is going to happen next.
I would highly recommend this book to teens, particularly if you enjoyed Slated. I would read Slated first, though, as I feel without the background knowledge gained in book 1, Fractured won’t make a whole lot of sense. You can check out my review of Slated here.
