Inhaltsangabe: "This book was absolutely enthralling." The Kindle Book Review
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. But she never felt ready to face them until now. Defying the Auran Council and everything she s been taught, Llona must learn to use her power over light as a weapon if she wants to survive.
The first emotion that I felt when I started reading Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan was...sadness. From the very opening of the story, I felt sad. I could feel the sorrow and sense of loss that main character Llona Reese goes through at the funeral/cemetery. It was at this point that I knew that this was going to be a promising read. If the author is already able to conjure up this emotion in a matter of a few pages, I knew that there was only more to come. I really enjoyed how McClellan introduces the characters in Fracture Light. Their interactions with each other were so addictive to follow. You could already see the budding relationships forming, which is always exciting to watch unfold. And of course, a Young Adult book is never complete without at least ONE character to hate...enter Brian. I mean, what a jerk! How he talks to Llana made me clench my teeth. Again, another sign that this was going to be a great read. EMOTIONS! McClellan does such a great job developing her characters throughout the book. You could really imagine them all as real people, not just an imaginary person in a book. Love, love her writing style. I found that McClellan s concept of light very interesting and that it reminded me just a little bit of Buffy The Vampire Slayer s sister Dawn, who was the key disguised as a human. For those of you who were die hard Buffy fans, you ll understand what I mean once you read the book. I love those stories of you can t always see what s staring you in the face type stories. My mind went on different tangents throughout the book trying to decipher who knew what/who Llana was...like I was playing detective, but one who didn t finger the right culprit. Good thing I m not really a detective! Reading about the dark figure was totally creeping me out! There aren t that many books out there anymore that can creep me out, but Fractured Light was among the few that did. It probably didn t help that I m home alone most nights, up wayyyy late reading in the almost dark, alone...hearing noises...feeling eyes watching me...eep! McClellan is such great story teller. She provides the reader with such vivid descriptions of this shadow creeper, that this book was seriously giving me a complex. I really felt like something or someone was watching me! This is such a fantastic, suspenseful read! Each chapter will keep you guessing until the very end, when everything you ve been questioning is finally revealed. I encourage everyone who loves a good paranormal suspense read to give Fractured Light a read. You won t be disappointed, and maybe...JUST maybe, you ll be looking over your shoulder every so often, or peeking at your window for a shadowy creeper... like I was! --Chapter by Chapter
"The publisher isn't lying about that 'edge of your seat' stuff. This is seriously addictive reading. Believe me, if you like YA paranormal romance, you'll be hooked. ['Fractured Light'] offers a new take on vampire-like creatures and introduces some fresh and imaginative paranormal ethnicities while allowing the characters to struggle against the dangers of power lust and societal bigotry." -- Serena Chase, USA Today --USA Today
