Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is only just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues as 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 Kira knows she is a part of, a plan that could save both races. Her allies 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 they will both discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn’t even know existed.

Fragments follows Kira in her search to find answers to the cure, the Partial expiration date, and herself. Secrets are revealed about the Trust and what really happened eleven years ago. Marcus and the people from Long Island face war with the Partials.

So happy to have read this series, Fragments is even better than Partials. I loved that we get to see some of the other characters develop a bit more. Marcus is a favorite of mine now and I like the progress between Samm and Kira. So much happened in this book and I really can’t wait for Ruins to come out.

The sequel to Partials, the first book of the Partials Sequence. Fragments is the second book in the Partials Sequence.

As revealed by the first book, Kira is a Partial. She's not human, she's a Partial. In this book, her main job is to find the truth behind Paragen. She has been to some of the buildings of Paragen, but could not find the building with Paragen's top secret information behind the Partials and RM.

With rotating POV between the many characters -- Kira Walker and Marcus, who are the main characters in Fragments -- Fragments tells an entertaining story between the two sides. Partial and Human. The switching POVs were useful and a major tool of storytelling of Fragments.

Mr. Well's writing certainly has improved from the last book. It seemed to be much smoother and easier to understand than the last book, Partials.

The ending was ironic. But in a setting of uncertainty and life and death and darkness and light and right and wrong, good guys can become bad guys and bad guys can become good guys. Right becomes Wrong. Wrong becomes Right. Enemy becomes friend. And friend becomes enemy. Deception is everywhere in the future of Long Island and North America. Can you see beyond the deception?

Before Reading: My friend let me borrowed Fragments. It was nice of her to do that. I had only read Partials and was quite eager to read Fragments despite the fact I was already reading a book. I usually don't read two books at a time. My rule of reading: Article 1. Read One and ONLY One book at a time. Oops.

During Reading: I was a little confused by the events and had to reread many of the sentences/paragraphs over and over again.

After Reading: The First few paragraphs of this review and after the synopsis.

Characters:

Kira Walker: She is a good character. Her internal conflict? To choose/support humans or to choose/support Partials. She leaning more the the former, because of her upbringings and beliefs. As the plot unfolds, Kira is split between the decisions It rips her into pieces and and leaves her crying. With pressure from her companions, she is forced into an unbearable position that leaves her confused and sobbing.

Samm: Yes! He finally has the nerve to reveal his feelings. Some of his feelings were sweetly revealed in a minor character's POV. Samm is still awesome in Fragments, yet slightly distant, unfortunately.

Marcus: Wow! War and battle and blood and death has changed the personality of Marcus. He's figuratively on fire in Fragments. Marcus is Kira's boyfriend. With Samm in the way, will Marcus soon be boyfriend with ex in front of it?

Rating: Four out of Five
