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.

In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.

My Review:Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan


Fractured Light is the first book in the series. I liked it. Last year I had read Fractured Soul the second book in Fractured Light series and like it. I am going to read it again so I am ready for Fractured Truth the last book in the series I believe.

Fractured Light is a young adult book that is centered around Llona Reese. She is a senior in high school. Llona has lived her life on the run hiding from the killer who killed her mom. Llona lives with her Uncle after her dad died. Llona ia a Aura like her mom.
Aura can manipulate light and the Vyken want to kill Auras and take their power.

Most Aura are at a special place to get trained. Llona wants to finish at a regular high school. She is learning a little about her power but not much. When the moon is full Llona has lots more power and is faster and stronger. When the moon is a sliver she can hardly do anything. Llona really likes Christian.

May is a friend of Llona. May has lots of friends but she gets close to none. Where Llona has stayed alone but this year she has decided to be more outgoing.

Christian is a football player sometimes he acts like he really likes Llona and cares about her. He is always watching and being protective of her.

Jake is her Uncle that she lives with. Since her father died he mainly plays video games. He has mourned his brother. He is not much of adult for Llona to rely on. He has no job.

Llona's father has left her plenty of money to live on. When she thinks they need to move for safety they do. She picked the house in UT. This time she does not want to run away she wants to finish high school where she is at. So when scary things happen around her she hides them from everyone.

The setting for this book is Salt Lake City, UT. and Wasatch mountains.

Lots of high school drama on top of super natural powers. Llona is not the only one who is different. I like the characters and I want to see where they go from here.

I bought the book on Amazon
