REVIEW: Fractured Suns by Theresa Kay

Fractured Suns (Broken Skies, #2)
We came in peace. Lie.
We had no role in the Collapse. Lie.
I have always been honest. Lie.
I never lied to her. Truth.

Reunited with her brother, and surrounded by Flint, Peter and her new-found grandfather, Jax Mitchell has still never felt more alone. The choice to follow Rym back to the city to find answers and see Lir is an easy one, but their reunion is cut short and Jax is forced to leave Lir behind. She finds herself traveling with some unexpected companions and heading back toward a place she’d hoped to never see again.

After being imprisoned—and tortured—on the orders of his uncle, Lir hasn’t seen daylight or linked to anyone in weeks. After a lifetime of connection, the pain and loneliness is almost too much to bear. Elated that Jax actually came, Lir finds renewed hope and strength to continue fighting his uncle's influence over the E'rikon, even when things look hopeless and Lir’s been branded a traitor by the very people he’s trying to save.

While Jax and Lir fight separate battles, their missions have more in common than they realize. It’s a race against time to stop men driven only by greed and power. But the people they trust the most might be the very people working against them—and "family" doesn't mean what it used to. Will they recognize their friends from their enemies in time to save the people they love or will they lose each other in the process?

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


This book takes place shortly after the events of the last book. Jax is still reeling from Lir's possible betrayal and coming into terms with her new abilities. With foreboding news, Jax must travel back to the town she intended to never go back to. At the same time, Lir is back in the city, being tortured by his uncle. But neither know who to trust and secrets will come to light, as well as the start of possible war.

This book definitely doesn't have middle book syndrome! So much happens! My crummy synopsis doesn't give this book justice. This book has event after event, and is definitely action-packed! I'm being extremely vague, mostly because I want you to be surprised, but there are so many twists! My mind was blown! Also, you find out so much more about Jax's abilities and the E'rikon!

I may be remembering wrong, but this book has a dual perspective, which I don't believe was in the last book. A majority of the book was from Jax's perspective, but every once in awhile we got to see from Lir's perspective. This really helped move the story. More stuff happened with Jax, but we really needed to see what was going on with Lir! I still love them both! They're great characters and very well-developed! In fact, all the characters, good and bad, and very well-developed! I also liked how we get to see new characters in this book as well as getting more of an understanding of all of them!

As for romance, there wasn't much. This book may not have middle book syndrome, but it does follow the aspect of most middle books where the couple is separated during the entirety. Not that there's no romance at all, Jax and Lir do see each other occasionally, but it's in the background, which is just the way I like romance. 

I loved Broken Skies, so I was excited to dive into this one! This is a fantastic sequel! I felt like so much happened and the characters were great! If you're a fan of sci-fi and/or aliens, please read this series! All the while, I will be waiting for the next book!

I hereby give this book
5 Wheels
Meaning: A new favorite!
