Diving into a sci-fi I couldn't forget, Partials took me away. I knew the sequel would have loads in it, since the first book left off with the one secrets revealed at the very end...1. Plot. This plot is very complex. There are some point of view of switches, so you must pay attention. Lots is going on so you need to be sure you read every single sentence so that you don't get lost or confused.2. Characters. All the characters have grown so much. Now that all that was revealed in the last book, Fragments is just picking up the pieces of the last book with much more action. I really like that some of the characters took charge while others betrayed. There is even a new character who changes a lot of things.3. Love interest. Love interest didn't go far, but some how some way it form a love triangle. At least, Kira is not bouncing back and forth between guys. Still, love interest does get complicated.4. Action. There is much movement from place to place. Lots of fighting and on the run scenes. It gets your heart racing! I love the build up for such excitement and the scenes themselves are devouring!5. Back round history. Now that the secret is out, there is much to learn about ParaGen and their motives. The reader get LOTS of juicy info of the planning that ParaGen is doing and has done.Overall, I think that this story lives up to the first. It is much more define and the bigger picture is coming together nicely. An endless entertaining story, Fragments is great!
