My review of Fracture

Fracture by Megan Miranda 
Release Date: January 17th, 2012

A wonderfully crafted story that will send chills down your spine.

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?

is a new take on the subject of death. With a touch of paranormal excitement, this book won't let you go until you've read the very last page.

This book had me fixed the whole way through. It has everything you want in a book; excitement, action, mysteries, romance, etc. There were many times when I felt that my heart would burst out of my chest! Yes! It was that exciting. The story is set in winter, and, by the way the scenes were described and used, it made me believe that I was out in the cold!

I don't think I enjoyed the main character, Delaney, as much as I could have done. For one, would you phone some random guy off a street if he claimed he knew what was wrong with you? Hmmmm? Second, she didn't make very sensible decisions. Most of the book was about her running off with some guy she barely knew. For those who don't like weak and helpless heroines, Fracture might not be your cup of tea.The character I loved most was definitely Decker. He is a fun and sweet boy who I just couldn't get enough of! 

Megan Miranda is so freaking awesome. I don't think a scene has ever impacted me as much as this one. I think it was the second to last chapter....All I could hear was my pulse roaring in my ears and my breath quickening. It's a great suspense/action bit in the book that I think you guys will enjoy.

Overall, Fracture is a fast paced and action packed book that you will not forget! I also recommend that you read this now!



  1. Wow, that's a great review! Thanks. I think I'll probably still read it, despite a weak heroine. I hate when that happens, but I guess it's sort of realistic. Not everyone is smart and brave and strong. The difference is that not everyone is the main character of a book. :)

  2. I'm not into weak heroines but this sounds like an interesting book. I'm always looking for something out of the ordinary so this might fit the bill. I'll definitely be looking for this one. Thank you for the honest review.

  3. I read a lot of different reviews about this book ,,, but honestly I just couldn't like it :)

  4. I have been intrigued by Fracture and at the same time torn not being sure if I want to take the plunge. Thank you for sharing your review and perhaps pushing me off the fence :)

  5. It sounded good, but I hate a weak hero so I probably wont read it

  6. Gosh! Why in the world am I the only person who seems to not like this book. I can say that I can tell why others would like it, and it did hold some elements that I enjoyed, but it was so darn depressing. Ugh. Oh well, I am glad that you liked it!
