Have you ever wondered where fairytales go once they're created?
It's been eight years since Story Sparks last had a dream. Now they're back, tormenting her as nightmares she can't remember upon waking. The black waters of Lake Sandeen, where her Uncle Peter disappeared decades before, may hold the secret to Story's hidden memories, or a truth she'd rather not know. On a bright summer afternoon, Story and her two best friends, Elliott and Adam, take a hike to the lake, where they dive into the cool water and never reemerge. What they find is beyond anything they've ever imagined could be possible, a world where dangers lurk in the form of Big Bad Wolves, living Nightmares and meddlesome witches and gods.
Now Story must remember who she really is and somehow stop two worlds from ultimate annihilation, all while trying not to be too
distracted by the inexplicable pull she feels toward a certain dark-eyed traveler who seems to have secrets of his own. The fates of the worlds are counting on her.
A book review is going to be difficult for me to do for this book. I mean, I think I just read one of the most amazing books I have ever read my entire life, and trust me when I tell you that is a lot of books. Fractured Dreams captured my heart and I hungered for more and more with every turn of the page as I wanted, no needed, to know what happened next. The plot was original, the characters love able and with twists and turns I wasn't sure what would happen next. The only thing I didn't like was the info dump. I felt lily there a little too much unnecessary information at times, the story could had continued without some of it. All in all, I loved this book and I can't wait for the next one!
