A New Review! Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan

I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice. 

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake. 

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger. 

If you enjoyed the Twilight series, you will enjoy this book! I think that the premise of Llona's powers are very interesting and unique. She shares a typical, relatable voice with her peers- even though she has the power to manipulate light. Though she sees her gift as somewhat of a curse, she realizes that in order to preserve her own life, and not share the same fate of her mother, she will have to look inside herself and realize her own strength. I believe that readers will be able to experience this story right along with Llona and will find the twists and turns to be quite an adventure! ~ Jess Haight
