Fractures (Echoes, #2)
They survived life on a deserted island.
They survived being hunted.
Now they must survive the truth—they are not who they think they are.
One minute they’re in Poland, subjected to gruesome tests they keep failing. No friends to support them. No family to claim them. No hope of ever living a normal life again.
Then suddenly, they’re trapped on an abandoned freighter in the middle of the ocean and forced to fight for survival. No food. No drinkable water. No way to get home. And strange memories of another life they don’t understand.
But how can they be living two separate lives, trapped in two separate places, at the same time? They’ll have to find the connection and uncover secrets that someone went to great lengths to keep hidden...if they’re going to survive long enough to find out who is behind it all.
Along the same lines as the first, where they alternate between two seemingly real places (island and Berlin), here they alternate between Poland and an abandoned freighter. The plot moves slowly, as they try to decide what their next steps should be, and Briola seems to be several steps ahead along the way.
Although I really enjoyed the first book, this one seemed to drag a bit. I would have liked more answers and moving along. I felt like this was almost a rehashing of the first book, where reality seems foggy and they are given two alternatives- and we are left with our questions for a long time. This book was told from Miles's point-of-view, but because of all the action, we only get through the surface and don't get a chance to really delve into his mind.
Overall, I was really happy to get some answers about what was going on. The conclusion here was satisfying, especially after the cliffhangers of the first book.
