Book Review | Fragments by Dan Wells

Author Dan Wells is back with the sequel to the sci-fi blockbuster Partials, which Pittacus Lore called a "thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth's future I've seen yet."

After discovering the cure for RM, Kira Walker sets off on a terrifying journey into the ruins of postapocalyptic America and the darkest desires of her heart in order to uncover the means—and a reason—for humanity's survival.

Dan Wells extends his richly imagined, gritty world and introduces new memorable characters in this second installment in the Partials Sequence.

This book is an edge of your seat page turner. I loved getting back into Kira's journey, and just as in the first book, all of the characters were well written, and the storyline was enjoyable.
I liked the introduction of some new characters, and how we got more secrets opened up to us about the Partials, Para Gen and the expiration date.
The emotions in this book were running high, and I loved the balance between chaotic and dramatic moments, with more emotional moments.
If I had to pick one thing that didn't quite hit the mark for me, it was simply that I found Kira and Samm's storyline in this book, a lot more interesting than Marcus' and so on. Whenever it was a chapter focussing on someone else, I tended to find that was when I'd take a break from reading. It wasn't that it wasn't interesting, because each character's storyline was interesting and added to the plot, but I did find Kira and  Samm's the most enjoyable. Maybe that's just because they're my favorite characters, and I love reading about them.
Overall, this is a fantastic book, and I'm excited to read the next in the series.
