The first book in this series introduced the characters perfectly but this sequel just picked the story line back up and ran with it. Dark themes set in a world that mirrors ours. If only we have this beautifully strong character in our world. AMAZING.

Wow. Talk about a tough subject to read about. This book is a beautiful blend of real world issues and science fiction.

Kaitlyn finally sees her potential in this story. She can now see why being brought back as a machine can be a blessing to others. Kaitlyn accepts who/what she is and embraces her mission. And makes her proud of herself. She is not a freak of nature - she is a solution to a problem. And hopefully she will continue to be in book 3.

This is very tough to read at times. It is hard

I am a big fan of Julia Crane's books... This is one of her best in my opinion. This is book 2 following Freak of Nature. If you read the first one you know by the end all you could think about was getting more.. Well this one delivers. This book deals with a tough subject but one that is real in the world.

In this book Kate goes on her first mission. Something I was excited to read about since she is, to me a super human. I loved Aaliyah and felt for her through the whole book. What happened to

Good sequel

While I liked this book, I found I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book. I'm not sure why, the characters were strong, the storyline was strong but I just didn't feel it

This book was so different to the first book in the series! I wasn't really expecting it to be until I read the synopsis and then I realised just how different it was going to be and how far it had developed since the first book! The plot of this book focused on an issue which occurs, but in my opinion, isn't talked about enough! It focused on human trafficking and I think this was such a brave step from the author! She put something which occurs every day to young woman and men and mixed it wit ...more

Omg... I really never expected this book to be so darn exciting. Yes, I knew I'd love it but it exceeded all of what I had hoped I would read after reading Freak Of Nature.

I love all of Julia's books and this book was totally anticipated. Not only by me but my daughter as well. She's a huuuuge fan and that's another reason I love Julia so much.. Back to the book.

Ok so I started the book thinking it was just going to be Kaitlyn and Lucas in trouble again or on the run.. I got much more than that.

Wow, just wow. This book was both hard to put down and hard to read. The subject matter is very difficult, especially when you truly realize how real black market slavery and abductions are in this world. It's something people don't think about, but it's very much so alive. This is definitely not the path I would have envisioned this series taking after having read Freak of Nature, yet it fits it beautifully. Kaitlin is not only an amazing engineering and modern technology feat, but her past mem ...more

This book is the 2nd in the IFICS series by Julia Crane. I read the first one and really enjoyed it. When this one came out, I couldn't wait to dive in.

This book wasn't always easy to read. It has some heavy subject matter. It's hard to believe that human trafficking exists in this day in age, but it does. It's also the fastest growing illegal trade.

In this story Kaitlyn, our partially robotic heroine, decides that she wants to use her enhancements for good. She sets out on the mission of taki

Once again, I was sucked right in to Julia Crane's IFICS world, with Fractured Innocence. It definitely had a different feel then the first book, Freak of Nature, due to the tough subject matter. Crane takes you into the gritty & raw world of human trafficking in America. Something some people aren't even aware of happening.

In this book Kaitlyn is going on her first mission. She finally is going to be able to use her skills out in the real world & make a difference in doing so. She's fre

I had a chance to Beta Read this book, and it does not disappoint!
Crane's writing style is so much different and unique in this book. It's still a Julia Crane book, but it's a new take and a new writing style. I loved it and can't wait for it to come out so this book can get the recognition it deserves!

This book had a subject matter that was hard to read and very graphic. It dealt with human trafficking. But, Ms. Crane did a fantastic job with it. Loved reading more about Kaitlyn, Lucas, and Erik. Enjoyed reading how Kaitlyn had grown a bit more into herself. Happy with how the book ended and eager to see where Ms. Crane takes Kaitlyn next.

This story blew me out of the water. The emotions felt while reading I was all over the place. The characters growth and new characters are purely amazing. The adventure even hard at times is well worth the read. Truly Julia Crane's best work yet.

Actual rating 2.5 stars.

I was hoping book two, ‘Fractured Innocence’ would redeem this series after my opinion on ‘Freak of Nature,’ the debut of this series, completely bombed. But unluckily, this was yet another lemon.

The beginning still had that annoying childish tone which did not gel well with Kaitlyn’s robotic nature, or the relationships and situations the novel started with. Not a good sign when I felt tense and squirmy with the first few pages...

Fractured Innocence is the fantastic sequel in the IFICS series. It is is sci-fi, dystopia, romance, and thriller all wrapped up in one cyborg package. It is also a far darker and more intense read than was the first, Freak of Nature. In this book, Kaitlyn has come into her own and living her new life in the best way that she can. Her humanity and her creation to be a weapon have come together to make her what she is today... a black ops-style soldier on a mission of good.

Picking up nearly where we left off the first time, we are back with Harrington, Lucas, Kaitlyn, and Erik and headed towards their next mission. Vance Dasovik -- the target, not a threat. There IS a difference.

Aaliyah is walking her little brother, Darrius, home when both are abducted off the streets of Detroit. Soon, Aaliyah is thrust into the bowels of hell, her innocence taken from her, and subjected to a sick bastard's base desires and torture. Her only concern is to survive s

WOW! That is my one word to sum up this book!! I was already a huge fan of Julia Crane and Freak Of Nature. It was different and very unique. It held my attention and was so intriguing.

With Fractured Innocence, I really had no idea where she would take us. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Kaitlyn would be going on a mission to stop a very vile man from continuing his disgusting ways of life in human trafficking.

What an Incredible book. I was already a fan from the first book Freak of Nature, but Julia completely captured my attention in this riveting tale. I was in angst reading this book it wreaked havoc on my emotions and that was only 50% through the book. I loved how Kaitlyn and Lucas’s relationship developed and how confident Kaitlyn had become. She was just dynamite in this book like a robot Xena. Kaitlyn was deadly her assignment making her so which leads me to my angst human trafficking. I was ...more

I was so excited to start this book and see what Kaitlyn’s first mission would be. As the book began, it was great to see that she was evolving even more as a person and in her relationships. Ailiyah’s journey through all the torture during the kidnapping, the abuses against her were unimaginable, sadly, these thing s happen to real children in this world. I sat through many parts of the story with my heart just crushed for Ailiyah. It was obvious that her inner strength was very great as she su ...more
This is a spectacular series! A breather of fresh air in the scifi genre. I had the privilege to by able to get an ARC of Fractured Innocence. It was in honest terms a gruesome story. The things that happens in Human Trafficking are scary and physical and emotionally scarring. I flinched when Aaliya did. She is a new character in the IFICS series. Things that happen to her made me sick to my stomach. This is an issue that needs to be addressed. She is brave and resilient. She deserves a much bet ...more

I am so happy that I came across this series. The first book did a great job at setting up the sequel. Kaitlyn has quickly became one of my very favorite characters in fiction. She is smart and compassionate plus a total badass.

In addition to Kaitlyn being awesome, I loved how much the guys around her supported and believed in her. They were quick to defend her and had total faith in her which made for some interesting relationships. I loved that I could cheer for the whole team.

Kate is now partnered up with Erik and they are on their first mission, find Vance Dasvoik, a leader in illegal drugs, weapons, and human trafficking. But this story is also about Aaliyah, a young girl that is kidnapped on her way home and put into the sex trafficking market by Dasvoik. Kate learns about her and makes it her mission to save Aaliyah.

This is a well written book on a very touchy subject. Trafficking is one of those topics that we seem to know about without really knowing about it.

I have followed this author faithfully through each and every book that she has written. When she wrote Freak of Nature that became my favorite and thought she could never top it. Boy was I completely wrong this book has totally surpassed my love of her writing. She doesnt have all the rainbows and unicorns in this adventure. She deals with a very real and gritty topic that has been discussed in the news. She maintains decorum in handling this controversial topic and doesnt down play the serious ...more

Excellent resolution to the cliffhanger at the end of book one! This book is action filled, socially aware, wonderfully tragic, and, of course, brilliant! I wouldn't expect anything else from Julia Crane. Kaitlin and Eric are a unique special ops team. Mercenaries, they are not bound by the constrictions of government agents. In this story, they've joined forces with some other ex military men, to kill a rich human-trafficking kingpin. The story takes you back and forth between the IFICS people ...more

Fractured Innocence begins almost where the Freak of Nature ended. So, if you have not read Freak of Nature, you might want to read it first. It will give you insight on what happened to Kaitlyn and why she is the way she is!!

Fractured Innocence is not as focused on Kaitlyn and her transformation - but is about her using her abilities to help others. It does show how Kaitlyn has feelings (which is odd for a person in her state) and how she helps others because of these feelings. Julia Crane has

The book fractured innocence continues where the first book left off in the hunt for Vance. In this book we see just how much evil this man can really do to a poor innocent girl named Aaliyah. My heart breaks for her and what she suffers in the book. I was also amazed by the courage and strength she has found by the end of the book. In this book we also see Kaitlyn and Lucas continue there relationship. We also meet several new characters Ace and Nick. I think this book overall was a very good b ...more

Fractured innocence is quiet different from book 1 of this series. The plot focuses on the illegal trade of children for sex and slavery. At first when Aaliyah was introduced I didn't know if I liked it, but I kept reading. The more the book progressed, the more action packed it became and more enjoyable. I was rooting for Kaitlyn to rescue Aaliyah. Can't wait for the next book if there is one.

In dem zweiten Band jagen der Cyborg Kaitlyn und Erik einen Mann, der Frauen entführt und verkauft. Vance der Verbrecher entführt Aaliyah, welche gerade ihren Bruder von der Schule nach Hause bringen will. So kommt die Geschichte etwas holprig ins Rollen. Die Entführung und der Verkauf von Frauen spielt in dem Buch eine große Rolle und wird beinahe wie eine Lehrstunde präsentiert.

Das Buch war leider nicht so gut, wie der Vorgänger. Vielleicht lag es auch daran, dass für mich so viel Zeit zwische

Well that was a very emotional and action packed ride. I wasn't too sure how I'd feel about the switch in perspectives but they worked out beautifully. I actually started to tear up a bit, and that normally doesn't happen. Can't wait to get the next book.

Kaitlyn's story is only beginning! I can't wait to see what's next for her, Aaliyah, and the rest of the team!
This is an amazingly written story. Syfi meets real world bad guys. But does good always win....?
