A Fractured Light - Jocelyn Davies

A Fractured Light (A Beautiful Dark, #2)
Series: A Beautiful Dark #2

Release date: 2012

Stars: 2/5

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.

After reading A Beautiful Dark, the first book in this series, I really was looking forward to this second book. The cover is nice, as was the first one! The book however, is a huge disappointment! It had a ton of awesome potential, but most of it failed hard, only the end is suprisingly good. The suprising twist in the end should have been there throughout the entire book, maybe than it wasn't that bad. The book starts good and ends good, but the middle is lost to me. It took me 3 weeks to read the whole thing. I just couldn't put myself to finish it. The whole choosing thing for Skye with boys and sides, we had that already in the first book. It was kind of boring and really that was what the book was about. We didn't learn more about the Rebellion or the Order for that matter. Maybe the fans who love the first book, will love this second book, but I really can't imagine someone enjoyed it. For me, I'm done with it.
