Review: A Fractured Light by Jocelyn Davies

A Fractured Light (A Beautiful Dark, #2)
A Fractured Light (A Beautiful Dark #2) by Jocelyn Davies
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.

    This picks up right after the other ended, and while it has only been a short time, I had already forgotten some details, but it gets you right back to speed. 
    There is a lot of tension in this one as Skye comes back home, with her aunt because she suddenly disappeared, at Devin because he tried to kill her, with herself at all of the guardians around and the fact that she is still out of control more than she wants to be. 
    But Skye is getting more control, becoming more confident even through the confusion and tension with others. I admired her for that. 
    Her relationship with Asher is still fun to read about. We get to see a slightly darker and deeper side of him in this one that I totally appreciated. And then his lighter, joking side also came back out and that kept things from getting too bogged down and completely serious. 
    For the most part this one it is mostly character development and build up of the tension. 
    Luckily I got the next one from Harper to review so keep your eyes peel over next few days for it. 

Bottom Line: Good second book.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Could you forgive someone who tried to kill you?

  1. I had a hard time liking this one so I didn't continue reading it. I'm glad there's better developments on the characters though; because that was my primary problem with the first book.

  2. I haven't tried this series, but I am glad there is character development.

  3. I do enjoy well thought-though character development, especially in these types of books, so I'm glad that worked out here. I don't know that I'll read the series, but it does sound good.

  4. I stopped reading after the ending to the first book (it annoyed me so much), but I'm glad to hear that this sequel is great and full of more character development!

    Nice review :D

  5. I'm curious to see how the third is, it's nice to see your reviews the ones after the other.

  6. Seems like Asher is a great guy--having an intriguing darker side to complete his fun-loving, humorous side. I can work with that :) I'm glad you're enjoying this series as it seems. I hope you'll like the next installments as well :) I wouldn't forgive for a murder attempt though O.o

  7. I personally am Team Asher, so I'm thrilled to hear that his relationship with Skye is progressing. Super excited to read this one now!

  8. I haven't read The Beautiful Dark books yet, but I like the sound of Sky's character, and Asher and Devin too! I see that book three is coming out soon, can't wait to see your review :)

  9. I'm glad book 2 wasn't a let down. I like a book with lots of character development. I'm hoping book 3 knocks your socks off! :)
