I read Greg Jackson's first book and it was hysterical so I bought Fractured: Athena Rising, not knowing what to expect. I love sci-fi and his twist didn't disappoint, with the hi-tech involved. The main character, Dylan King was an instantly complicated and likable girl...part precocious teen and part 18 year-old girl thrown into the survival of adulthood after a brutal life up until now. The characters in the book all had unique personalities, even in the Crow-like dark worlds they lived in. The author's twisted humor was sprinkled in here and there but this book was a little more edgy and grittier in tone than Mistletoe was. But it's the first book of the series, so I can't wait for the second part to see how Dylan grows and adapts to the fate she's been given, and I need to see what's real! There are political overtones that set the story that eerily mirror what's going on today, but I thought of it as a story of a lost girl trying to find herself in a horrible world as she's being hunted down for the technology in her she didn't have a choice to accept. It's dark and violent but it's definitely a very cool book.
