I bought this after reading My Daylight Monsters which I got for review, so having read Sarah Dalton before I have super high hopes!

I started it when I got it but when I saw it was one of the choices for up-coming group reads I put it aside. It was a good start so I can't wait to get into it again :)

I'm really enjoying this so far.

In fact, I'm thinking about buying it for a friend who has a penchant for dystopian novels even if the paperback's a little pricey.

I only started reading this yesterday and I'm around 14% into it at the moment. Loving it so far :)

Hi Griffin, you just have to contact the author here on GoodReads and let her know you're wanting to read it for the group read: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

In which case, what's the best order to read the rest? There's a few companion books, would you recommend reading them along with the Blemished Trilogy or reading them after?

Sarah Dalton (sarahdalton) | 5 comments Ooh, good question. I would read the series: The Bemished, The Vanished, The Fractured: Elena, The Fractured: Maggie, and then The Unleashed.

The two Fractured novellas actually follow the storyline and enrich the final book. They aren't essential reading, but I think they help everything into place. Not that many people actually read them though. Most seem to stick to the main trilogy. I'm thinking of putting together a boxed set with all of them in order.

I definitely want to read the next book in the trilogy, but I'd love to read the companion books too. Something about Elena made me want to know more about her, so her book would be interesting.

Sarah Dalton (sarahdalton) | 5 comments Elena was definitely one of my favourite characters to write. She started off as just a bully, and I planned to make her scenes a small subplot, but she ended up humanising the GEMs. I never wanted the world to be good versus evil, and even characters who are almost completely bad, like Mrs Murgatroyd, have reasons why they've become like they are.

With Elena's novella, I actually think it could have been a full length novel. I just didn't have enough time to make it one!

Anyway, enjoy :)
