I fell so in love with the characters in A Beautiful Dark that I couldn’t wait for A Fractured Light to arrive and now I patiently wait for the third installment.
After the major cliffhanger in A Beautiful Dark Davies wastes no time starting us off. The only problem, I had a hard time with this plot. While I love the premise it took far to long for the storyline to develop. Skye was all over the place and Asher was so wishy washy that I thought he was turning into Devin. Devin and Raven were hardly used and there seemed to be no threat from the Guardians even though it’s talked about page after page.
Although when we reached the ending I felt there could’ve been a few more chapters bringing the danger closer to Skye, but the element of danger was missing unlike in A Fractured Light.
Don’t get me wrong, I fully plan to delve into the third. This may be just a sophomore slump.
When she wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings, Skye knows something terrible has happened to her. It’s not until she hears Asher, the dark, rebellious angel she fell in love with, that the memories come flooding back. She tries to put the past behind her, but she knows she’ll be forever haunted by the ruthless betrayal that almost took her life.
Skye returns home, but with the knowledge of who she really is, nothing can ever be the same. As she tests the limits of her newfound powers, Skye discovers that she’s capable of far more than anyone could have imagined. Both the Order and the Rebellion want her for their side as war between the factions looms. She can’t forget the terrifying truth she now knows about the Order, but something holds her back from embracing the Rebellion.
“A Fractured Light” picks up right after “A Beautiful Dark”‘s shocking cliffhanger ending and is perfect for fans of Lauren Kate’s “Fallen” and Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush saga.
