Fractured Light by McClellan (ARC Review)

I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.

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.

In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Review Request.

At first this was a slow starter for me, and I feared that it would be like so many books I have recently read, one that I would have to force myself to push through, I think one of my main problems was that I was a little lost in the begging, luckily for me as I progressed through the book I was glad that I kept with it. Everything was explained and I found myself relating to Llona and the fact that she kept everyone at arms length in high school because it was dangerous. Both parents dead, she has lived a life relying mainly on herself.

Then to add to the fact that a forbidden love interest is thrown into the mix, you can't help but fall in love with the characters in the book as the plot unfolds.

I will say that I did find the big bad of the book to be predictable, perhaps it is because I read so much but either way it was still a great fight to the finish.
I am hoping there shall be more to read about in a sequel

Favorite Character: Matt. Just something about him was more memorable then the others.
Rating: 4 Stars!
