Review: Fractured by Cheri Schmidt

From Goodreads:
The Fateful Trilogy continues with Fractured.

They had thought they’d escaped most of the danger surrounding them, when in truth they’ve made it worse by unintentionally sparking a civil war amongst vampires. Many vampires want to protect them for discovering the cure to the curse binding their kind. However many more want to destroy them for that same discovery.

Ethan’s and Danielle’s struggle for survival intensifies while they sink deeper into the midst of this danger. The romantic fairytale bliss they once had will soon fracture under the pressure of the curse....

As stated above, this is the second book in this series and is not a stand alone book.  You really need to read Fateful before this book.

I enjoyed this book more than I did the first book.  I liked the first book okay, it was a decent read but the second book was for sure better.  I guess I like the mortality of the second book better.  Ethan is now a mortal man, being cured in the first book from the vampire curse.  I really felt his frustrations of not being able to completely defend and protect Danielle like he had as a vampire.  He becomes dependant on others and it really frustrates him.  I enjoyed the growing love story between Ethan and Danielle and their desires for a “normal” future with children.  And, as with the first book, I enjoyed reading a love story without love triangle.  It was just Ethan and Danielle working together against the world.  I didn’t have to pick sides or choose between two hot guys.  J

While this was a pretty clean book, it isn’t one I would put into the hands of my 13 year old.  There is a lot of sensuality which is, in my opinion, more appropriate for the more mature reader.

I congratulate Cheri Schmidt on her success with these books.  They are doing very well as far as sales go.  You can pick Fateful up at Amazon on the kindle for .99 cents and Fractured for $2.99.  Awesome!
