Malia returns home the hero of a war she can't remember. The valley burning under the Maddion's invasion, the fate of her late husband, the way she resolved the long-time distrust between the Taakwa people and the wolfish, winged Jegudun creatures--all of it has been erased from her memory. Malia hopes to resume training as her village’s next clan mother, but when the symb ...more

This second part of the trilogy is a good bridge between the other two. The others read as complete plots on their own, and although that’s true here to some degree, it cannot be read on its own. That is not a problem, since I was so captivated by the world and the people while reading that I wouldn’t have wanted to read it alone.

In this part, there are a host of new characters. Since so many of the Maddion died (or were never named) in the first one, that leaves room for us to meet more of them

Roland's extensive worldbuilding is on display in this sequel as we dive deeper into the culture and lives of the Maddion people, and Malia struggles to reclaim her memories before she loses herself to the magic which saved her people from their Maddion enemies.

This was definitely the same compelling read of book one, and a refreshingly less traditional fantasy world, built from the New World, rather than the old. For that element alone, this series is worth a read!

I loved SHARDS OF HISTORY and couldn't wait to see how this saga would expand. FRACTURED DAYS explores the new, tenuous alliance between the Taakwa and the Jeguduns (winged wolf creatures) who have recently learned they can create symbiotic magic. It also delves deeper into the Maddion culture, especially their treatment of women. Malia is still an amazing protagonist, but one of the Maddion women (Chanwa) emerges as a clandestine feminist hero.

I recommend both SHARDS OF HISTORY and FRACTURED DA

Malia, the Maddion, and the Jegunduns are back! I loved this sequel even more than the first. Wonderful new characters, such as Chanwa (wife of the Maddion's new Most Worthy), kept me turning pages through the night. If you liked "Shards of History," don't miss this one!

This trilogy continues to move quickly with Rebecca Roland's second book. Malia & the Taakwa & Jegudun have survived the invasion by the Maddion. As time goes by though, Maaliia finds herself in more trouble. She can't remember people or things she had done before. She is loosing her mind because of the magic she used to close off the valley behind the shield again. What will she do to save herself ? How will "the changer " help her ? This book makes one think about life & the choice ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I do know the author (she is the wife of a dear friend and has become a good friend as well) but my opinions are my own and based on my generally positive view of the fantasy genre.

REVIEW

Rebecca Roland has done it again in the second installment of the Shards of History trilogy (yes, trilogy. She is writing the third book right now). Fractured Days takes us back to the rich and colorful world of the T

The magic Malia made came with a price. She ensured the safety of her people from the invading Maddion, but as a result, she remembers none of the war or the part she played to end it. Now she faces an enemy from within, one which steals more and more of her memories until she fears she won't remember her world, her loved ones, or even herself. Across the magical barrier Malia erected, the Maddion people are crippled by their defeat and devastated by disease, while their women and servants suffe ...more

I am just jumping into this series, but already I know I am going to have to pop back and read the first book, as this one was so addicting I read it in two nights! I genuinely couldn’t put it down.

I love the world that Roland has built. It is full of depth, detail, excitement and truly feels real. From page one, I was immersed in the world and lives of the characters. It was also interesting to get the extra detail, from my guest post, as it showed just how intricate and real the world is to Ro

Good follow up on unsolved plots from previous book. I feel like this world is developed well and believable with real people who deal with emotions and problems like the rest of us.
