Fragments (Partials)

Synopsis:

Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?

The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity’s time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means—and even more important, a reason—for our survival.


The Phoenix’s Perspective

At the end of the first book, I was captivated. The human population had been decimated by the Partials and was slowing dying out. Kira had managed to save a baby — the first baby to be born and stay alive in twelve years.  As if that alone wasn’t enough, we learned a hidden secret — one hidden so deep that not even the person it was about knew.  Kira is a partial!  Not just any partial, but a new model that doesn’t have the same limitations or programming.

The book follows Kira as she searches for answers – what is the cure, how is she a partial, who is behind all of this? During her travels she finds herself responsible for Afa, a lone human surviving in the Partial portion of the city. Afa has learned to survive by staying hidden – well, there’s no hiding when with Kira.  Samm and Heron eventually join Kira and Afa.

I wish I could delve more into the plot of the book, but I can’t without divulging too much. All I can say is that Fragments gave me a more in-depth look at each of the characters. I was taken beneath the skin of human or partial and into each character’s soul — it is very hard to hide the ugliness of evil or the beauty of good when looking so deeply.


Would I add it to the library?

Yes – I am excited to read the conclusion of Kira’s story, Ruins.
