Fragments Review

564 pages

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? Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed.

This is turning out to be an amazing science fiction series in which you don't know what could possibly happen next. The story is told from several perspectives, but it all comes back to Kira. Kira is strong and wants to help both humans and Partials, however, that journey is harder than she thinks. Kira is extremely conflicted between not knowing whether she identifies with humans or Partials. Most of the main characters return and all seem to grow in preparation for another impending war between humans and Partials. In this novel we are able to understand a bit more about the Partials and the war that decimated the human race. There is much more to the Partials than they're give credit for, and that went a long way to understanding them. There are so many unexpected twists and turns, that by the end I couldn't wait to see what else Kira and her friends would discover. There is a lot of action and adventure as everyone searches for answers that will help them survive. I definitely recommend reading this if you love science fiction novels but make sure to pick up Partials first.
