Review: Rachel McClellan's Fractured Soul

Fractured Soul Blog Tour Information

About Fractured Soul

Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her new found friends and home, but the dark plot threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat. This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page!

My Take:
Having not read the first book, Fractured Light, I didn't know what to expect. After reading this book, I bought the first because I enjoyed not only the story, but this writer’s way with words. The book is well-written and completely captivating. It reminded me a little of the Vampire Academy books, only I enjoyed these two novels much more.
In the beginning of Fractured Soul we learn that  Llona and May are now attending the Lucent Academy which is a school for girls with special "Talents." However things quickly go south as the battle to keep the students safe, specifically the Auras, begins. Llona's internal battle adds fuel to the fire as she rebels against the rules and sneaks out of the school at night. She meets up with some not so good guys, but is saved by a mysterious stranger!
This is an entertaining read and held my imagination from page one. I’d highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys supernatural stories. I’d also even recommend it to those who don’t, because this novel just may make a believer out of you.

What others are saying:

“I love these books! A kick-butt heroine and a hottie love interest, with a refreshingly original concept. Be prepared—once you start, these are hard to put down.”
Paula Cotton, book reviewer at

Fractured Soul is a brilliant sequel, exceeding even the remarkable first book in the series. It will haunt your every waking moment between the times you’re reading it, and it will stay with you long after you’ve finished. It’s an amazingly well written and engrossing story that I highly recommend—after you’ve read the first one, of course.”

About Fractured Light

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
