Fractured Soul Blog Tour








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 Review of Fractured Soul by Rachel McClellan

I have to begin by telling you I’m a fan of the prequel to this book, Fractured Light, so when Rachel asked me to review Fractured Soul for an endorsement, I jumped at the chance just so I could read it before it was released. Good decision on my part.
It isn’t often that a sequel comes along that’s even better than the original, but Rachel managed to do that with this book. I read the entire book in a couple of days, sneaking it in between when I was supposed to be working. I couldn’t wait to read the next chapter, and was disappointed when it ended. Not because I was disappointed in the ending but because I wanted more pages to read. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

In Fractured Soul, Llona and May decide to attend Lucent Academy, and idea presented to them in the first book by Aunt Sophie. Lucent Academy is supposed to be a safe haven for girls with gifts like Llona and May, but things aren’t always what they seem. Lucent Academy is under attack from some evil forces that desire the destruction of the Auras. In the midst of that, Llona is experiencing some dark feelings that go against the light. What seems like normal teen rebellion turns out to be something that threatens her very soul.

I’m not going to give away any more of the story than that, other than to say that not only do the necessary characters play a part (helllllo, Christian!) but that new characters are also introduced that I hope to see plenty more of in the next book. In fact, I’d like to see an entire book based on Liam and how he came to be.

Fractured Soul is a brilliant sequel, exceeding even the remarkable first book in the series. Fast paced, exciting, and intriguing, it kept me guessing until the very last page what would happen next. The ending was shocking and heartbreaking, but absolutely perfect as a lead-in to the next book. Fractured Soul will haunt your every waking moment between the times you’re reading it, and 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.

  3. Is there an author you would say has a similar writing style to this one? I will admit I'm scared to try new authors; I need encouragement! :P

    1. Okay, it took me a while to decide how to answer you. I honestly can't think of an author that I would say Rachel sounds like because she just sounds like her, I suppose. It's hard for me to give you other names but I will say her writing is really good, very clean and compelling. I'm a big fan of her.

    2. Diana, I'm not sure I could say I'm like anyone else, but I will say my writings are influenced by L.J. Smith, James Dashner, and Christopher Pike. I hope that helps!

      Thanks for participating in my Blog Tour, Cindy!

    3. I have to say, Diana, that though I wouldn't compare her writing STYLE to LJ Smith (again, just because to me she sounds like herself - original) the feel of her book is similar to LJ's, who I happen to be a fan of!
