This review is spoiler-free, and safe even if you haven't read the first book in this series.
In my review of last year's Partials, I posted a handy check list to help readers decide whether the book was for them. If you're a fan of well-written science fiction thrillers or post-apocalyptic novels with strong heroines, this series is one you should definitely check out!
What do you need to know going into the sequel?

The story alternates between Kira and Marcus's point of view. We follow Kira (who is later joined by Samm and Heron) on her journey to find the Trust, and Marcus as he takes a stand and does what he can to save the people of Long Island. Marcus wasn't my favourite character ...more
Book 2 of the Partials Sequence
By Dan Wells
A Review by Eric Allen
A few years ago, Suzanne Collins wrote The Hunger Games, and while not terrible, it was not exactly the best, nor most original book ever to come along. It sold ridiculously well, and this, in turn, set off what I like to call the Dystopian Revolution. Think hard, you'll see the joke in it eventually, if not outright. Publishers saw that there was huge interest in Dystopian fiction, and many an aspiring writer saw their ch ...more
Just because of Samm. I remember when I read Partials - I was speechless and completely amazed. Dan Wells gave me exactly what I love in my post-apocalyptic novels - well thought fictional world, strong characters and captivating plot twists. I loved every second of it. Now, I finally made myself to read the sequel - and it was all because of Samm. Fragments has 576 pages!
It was kind of a... boring. One of my status updates while I had been reading was this: "And that' ...more
In Fragments, the narrative is split between Marcus and Kira, and I was very surprised to find myself enjoying Marcus’ point of view more. Far more interesting things were happening on ...more
Meh, it was okay. The writing wasn't bad, it was just really slow and really BORING… And slow and boring aren't the best of combinations.
I enjoyed Partials far more than Fragments… I disliked the slow pace, the lack of thrilling action, and the change to multiple POV's. I would have rather read Kira's POV alone - I wasn't interested in Marcus or Samm, they were positively dull. Not that Kira was exciting but she was at least somewhat mildly engaging. Okay, that's not true, sh ...more

So, we have a really popular book. Great reception, awesome cover, everyone seemed to love it. What do we do to boost the fame? Write a mediocre sequel, but here's the kicker..... USE THE SAME EXACT COVER! Woah! Amazing! I mean, of course, we can't use the EXACT SAME THING, so lets add another person in there, and change up the skyline a bit. WINNING!
This book was so badly thought out and researched, I want to cry out in anger... "Why ...more
However, this book was amazing. Even better than book one. And that's saying something.
Review to come.
COMMENCE SCREAMING AND RUNNING IN 3...2...1...
This book made me question my morals constantly. Insane moral quandaries are scattered throughout this book and it makes for an amazing, if frustrating read. The benefit to this style of writing however, is that there are no black and white characters. Every choice made in this novel has epic consequences and no matter who you help someone else will suffer for it.
I almost don't want to read the next book because I feel like everything is so dire that to have any hope at all would require a farf ...more
I feel like it drags at parts, there are unnecessary scenes, and it could have been 100 pages shorter. However, there are so many cool plot developments and we get a lot of answers!! I really loved the ending and I flew through the last 50 pages like they were nothing.
I am confused on Marcus' character and the relationship between him and Kira.. along with other relationships that develop. I'm not really fe ...more
Thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK, Children’s for me giving this book to review.
Kira has found a cure for RM but it is not easily accessible as it means using the partials, now she is on a search across the country with Samm, Heron and an unhinged computer expert called Afa for a cure for both the humans and partials as well as answers to who she is and who know about her. Meanwhile back on Long Island, Marcu ...more
Detailed Review: Ok. Long story short. This book was... It was... It was just... Oh my god. I don't know what to say. It was just asd;flkjadflkjaposiu AMAZING. I'm on the verge on a mental breakdown. See what this book has done to me? SEE?!? After reading Partials, I did get a good impression of the author and we even interviewed the author! Yes, we interviewed the famous Dan Wells! (You should already know that if you're a ...more
Si no le puse 5 estrellas es porque esas 500 páginas de viaje, pistas contradictorias y desolación fueron muy largos (que no por eso menos interesantes) y a veces repetitivos.
5 Stars--the book had a profound impact on me. It touched me on some special level and lingered with me long after I'd finished reading it.
4 Stars--I loved this book. If I don't own it, I will buy it so I can read it again and again.
3 Stars--I enjoyed the book but may have had an issue or two with it.
2 Stars--I had more than a few issues with it.
1 Stars--I hated it.

Wells’ fictional virus was what kept me hooked to Partials, but the science takes a backseat in Fragments. That’s not to say that Well’s brilliant research skills don’t still shine through – Fragme ...more
First of all, the story is split up between Kira, Marcus, and Haru's POV. I was glossing over Haru's chapters a bit, but then had to go back and reread, because his stuff is very important! I loved getting Marcus's side to things. We actually get one cha ...more
There were many chapters that I skimmed at best. I could've done without 90% of the chapters with Marcus. I didn't think those chapters added much to the story. IMO, Marcus didn't add much to ...more
I loved the first book in the series, but 'Fragments' is not what I was expecting. For the most part nothing was happening in the story, to be honest. The characters had to cross America to find some answers, and basically the whole book was about their journey, how they go from one ci...more
