holed up in Peter s cabin out in the woods Jace is still pretty busted up, but he is doing what he can to recover His relationship Flint, and well everyone, is strained because of the mental stress they have all been under Jax is still very broken from what Lir did to her, but she is holding herself together so she can be strong for those around her Jax is so bad ass in this book She has made the most progress as far as character development than anyone else When we first met her in Broken Skies, she was broken and fragile She needed her brother and relied so heavily on him Through Broken Skies, she finds Lir and gains strength from their relationship But in Fractured Suns, she pretty much just says EFF ALL Y ALL and handles things herself She is tired of every decision she makes being questioned and tired of everyone treating her like she is still this sheltered, fragile little girl Once she makes up her mind to take charge of her life and stop relying on other people for strength, she really starts coming into her own.What really makes this a five star book for me is the bond no pun intended that Jax and Lir share After everything that has happened to them and even despite the fact that are hardly physically together in this book, they still are there for each other no matter what Yeah, there are times when they doubt each other s motives or whether they can trust one another, but those thoughts are quickly pushed away When things start to get rough, they go to bat for one another Lir really steps up for Jax in this book Jax is dealing with some things, and even though Lir cannot physically be with her, he does whatever he has to do to take the heat off of her Jax is so much stronger in this book than she has ever been, but she still needs Lir It s not the same type of neediness that she possessed before where she had to have someone to be her strength, but now it is the type of need that you really only have with someone you truly love Lir knows that Jax can handle her own, but he doesn t want her to handle it on her own He wants to take what he can off of her and put some of the burden on himself because he loves her and he sees what she is going through They really are one of my all time favorite book couples because there isn t any BS with them They go through some tough stuff, but the bond that they share is something that even the best love stories out there can t come up with.So, there are a few twists in this book Mainly three big ones one that you can pretty much see coming, one that is a big surprise and came out of left field, and one that left me sobbing on my couch while my dog literally licked tears off of my face and gave me a WTF is wrong with you, mom look Seriously, the last twist that happens caught me so off guard As it is happening, I was like Wait What WHAT OMG WHAT and then proceeded to read one of the most heart wrenching moments in alien book history This last twist also supports my last paragraph on why Lir is so freaking awesome I won t give any spoilers, but what he does for Jax is something that is absolutely selfless that it left me speechless I just I just can t even talk about the scene right now Too soon The wounds are too fresh You re just going to have to read it for yourself.We also get some pretty kick ass supporting characters in Fractured Suns Most of them made some sort of appearance in Broken Skies, but now we really get the chance to get to know them There are three that really stick out for me Stu, Rym, and Trel We know Stu from Broken Skies because he was the son of the scum bag Lenny who tried to send Jax off the Breeders Well, he is back in this one, but let s talk about doing a 180 character flip Seriously, this dude goes from scum of the Earth in my head to being pretty freaking awesome Also, Lir s cousins Rym and Trel are back Rym places a HUGE roll in this book, which is so awesome because he is so funny He is my soul mate when it comes to making inappropriate jokes at the worst time possible Seriously, it s one of my super powers Anyway, I feel like these could have come from the same universe that Jennifer Armentrout s Daemon Black and his crew came from which is a pretty freaking big statement considering Lux is in my top 5 of all time favorite books Rym reminds me a lot of Luce from Lux, and Trel reminds me a lot of Ashley Both awesome characters in their own ways, and both really bring big things to the table Overall, this is a fantastic book I loved Broken Skies, but Fractured Suns knocked it out of the part when it comes to character development, action, and plot twists I couldn t put the book down, and since we are left on the edge of our seats, I will be anxiously awaiting book three I can t wait to see where all of my favorite characters end up If you are a fan of the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout, I absolutely recommend this book to you I recieved this book because I begged for it Okay, maybe not begged, but I did volunteer to review for honesty This is the second book in the series and can be catorgorized as dystopian sci fi ish This story was fast paced I couldn t put it down I literally stayed up till about one in the morning finishing it It was fecking amazeballs The growth of the characteres in this book was many layered and detailed I found the pacing faster than BS The plot wasintricate and the romance had I recieved this book because I begged for it Okay, maybe not begged, but I did volunteer to review for honesty This is the second book in the series and can be catorgorized as

book was many layered and detailed I found the pacing faster than BS The plot wasintricate and the romance had evolved deeply There are some differences in this book compared to the last one I will not go into many because if I start then I will end up spoiling it, and I just don t like to do that I will say that all the loose ends I wanted tied up in this book were Which is a major deal to me Sometimes I make a list because I m a teensy bit anal retentive Moving onThis book has a dual POV Do you know what this means I get to be inside Lir s head and that is pretty sexy to me I am constantly amazed by this authors talent when it comes to emotions Jax holds a lot of anger inside Its described so well I found myself getting mad too I call that emotional transfer This author is very good at it This book is suitable for ages 14 and up IMO but the little things, like a touch or a look are described so well and with wonderful innuendo that it seems as thoughhappens than actually does I found it a very mature and realistic relationship For teenagers who had to grow up fast with a shitty past At times Jax seems a bit reckless and very stubborn, but this is really who she is as a character so it was consistent in that aspect Lir hasresponsibility and this is different from the last book as well I enjoyed his internal conflict, what he wanted versus what was needed for his people.I found Lir s voice softer than Jax s this book around Which I contributed to his growth as a character love of Jax, thinking beyond his own grief from last book Lir s plot wasn t as strong as Jax s, again I assumed that was intentional since, you know, Jax is the MC and the author doesn t want to steal her thunder I can t go on It s spectacular Go forth and buy it when it comes out You must have this book in your mind before you die That is all Spoilers for Broken Skies 1 but the 1st paragraph is safe to read Oh you guys This book This amazing book I tear up even thinking about this story, because Fractured Suns was breathtaking It quickly pulled me back into the story and I found myself immersed in a world and surrounded by characters that I love And be prepared, because my emotions felt as though they were being pulled all over the place Happy and sad tears streaked down my face while I spent a good portion of the Spoilers for Broken Skies 1 but the 1st paragraph is safe to read Oh you guys This book This amazing book I tear up even thinking about this story, because Fractured Suns was breathtaking It quickly pulled me back into the story and I found myself immersed in a world and surrounded by characters that I love And be prepared, because my emotions felt as though they were being pulled all over the place Happy and sad tears streaked down my face while I spent a good portion of the story smiling This book was somuch fun It had peril, heartbreak, action, lies, betrayal, love and I was definitely glued to the pages But you want to know what the kicker was I m not one of those people who will read until the wee hours of every night because my kiddos wake up at 6am, or earlier if I m lucky ha But Fractured Suns refused to be put down I stayed up until 2 35am to finish, and it was so worth it If our only focus is survival, then we re no better than them Without compassionwithout forgivenesswe re nothing but animals Jax We get to jump right back into the story at Peter s cabin, where Jax is stuck because her brother Jace is healing from a broken leg Their E rikon grandfather, Jastren, is there along with her brother s boyfriend, Flint While her brother, grandfather and Peter are away gathering supplies, Jax gets a chance to go back and see Lir with Rym After their too brief encounter, they both find themselves fighting and struggling on their own journeys Without each other He lied He manipulated me He used me And when it came down to it, he made his choice Jax When Jax and Lir met for that first time after the bond had been broken, eeks I was terrified because I wanted to push them together and yell at them to kiss and make up But in all honestly, they really haven t known one other for that long Can they even trust each other Jax still harbors so much hurt from Lir s betrayal And with Lir not having a functionalkitu , he doesn t know how to trust others without being able to sense their feelings And as the story progresses, I fell evenin love with both of them Jax and Lir grow throughout the story and it made my heart so happy with the choices and decisions that they had to make No matter how hard they were Jax is still resourceful and savvy but her heart becomes something truly beautiful And Lir Swoon Charming, brave, smart and sincere, Lir is one sexy alien You would kill him for what he is, I say But you never asked what I was I smile sweetly and bat my eyelashes right before I place a single finger to his temple and send every bit of the fire raging through me straight into his head Jax So of course I was devastated when Jax had to leave Lir, because there is still so much up in the air But guess what In Fractured Suns we got to be in both Jax and Lir s head I loved that we finally got to hear Lir s thoughts To see what he thought of Jax, because I have been obsessively trying to figure it all out once I finished the last page in Broken Skies For a few of Lir s chapters, the story seemed to move at a slower pace, compared to Jax s crazy journey But in the end, it made sense thatwehad to understand the people he was surrounded with, what he had gone through, and how he wanted to proceed I get it, and itthan made sense If I stop to think, if I do anything but move forward I will fall apart And this time I won t be able to put the pieces back together Jax But there is one point in the story that I never saw coming Everyone was asleep while I readthatscene and I needed sob out loud To let out all of the pain But instead I had to bite my lip and allow the tears to continuously stream down my face Silently speaking the devastation I witnessed That twist left me in utter shock The ramifications, oh I m at a loss But in a twisted way, I love when books can affect me that intense That I can feel that deep of a connection to characters and their feelings I just wish it didn t hurt that much So yes, I definitely recommend this book and series I can t wait to see what the final book has in store for Lir and Jax ARC was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review Forof my reviews, please visit Click below for teasers Teaser 1Teaser 2Teaser 3 UPDATE 8

dazzled the first time through, and holy cow do you notice all the little subtle setups eventhe 2nd time around I m not saying it wasn t amazeballs the first time through, I m just stuck in happy land over here and amazed at all the little nuances that I may not have noticed b c I was a bit greedy when I first got this in my grubby little hands snort I know, shocker right Quite frankly, I m still reeling Ms Kay sets a perfect pace in this book not too fast that things get lost, but a steady build that keeps you clamouring foras you go along Jax is still as fiesty yet broken as ever.but you actually got to see her gain strength as the book went on Not without setbacks, but that s kind of realistic right And we get Lir POV Still totally in love with that alien boy I was soooooo worried at the end of book 1.I mean, most of me knew there was an explanation for the bond break, but I was so heartbroken that I wasn t sure I would be able to forgive him But I did While his role in the book is not as prominent this is still mainly Jax s story , I liked getting to learnbackground about the E rikon through Lir, and I felt like we got to seeof who he isthe struggles he s dealt with.And that brings me to secondary charactersand specifically how much I LOVED them Rym turned out to be so muchthan I was expecting I AM IN LOVE What s with these E rikon boys He was hilarious, and yet had his own depth Then there was the surprise of Stu Did NOT see that one coming, and yet his role fit so well Especially when we got to meet Ethan LOVED him and what he brought to the story Still learning to love Emily, but immediately fell in love with Gavin Can t wait to seefrom some of these newbies And then there s Flint.I did NOT expect how big his role was going to be in this book.So yeah.another book hangover book By the time the ending comes, my mind was just whirling with all that we d learned, and it s going to take a while to process it all If you fell in love with Broken Skies and how could you not , then you will not be even remotely disappointed with this book Solid characters, intriguing world building, fast paced plot, fabulous imagery, and an author that takes risks The downside Waiting for book 3 is going to be a bitch August 2015 OMG, I m starting this DDD Thank you so much to the author for giving me an ARC YOU ROCK Here s my review for the first book Broken

it would be quite a spectacle I wouldn t missed it This is how I pictured her in Broken Skies, even though this girl looks too innocent and doesn t do Jax justice I got a thing for redheads, you know Can t wait for Fractured Suns D 4 stars This eARC was provided to me by the author herself in exchange for an honest reviewFractured Sunspicks up whereBroken Skiesleft off and follows Jax as she deals with the consequences of the last book while still trying to survive I will say this was a good sequel, was it better than its predecessor No not really What was really different about this book was the dynamics of the characters Jax was interesting because her knee jerk reactions are now back in action and causes so 4 stars This eARC was provided to me by the author herself in exchange for an honest reviewFractured Sunspicks up whereBroken Skiesleft off and follows Jax as she deals with the consequences of the last book while still trying to survive I will say this was a good sequel, was it better than its predecessor No not really What was really different about this book was the dynamics of the characters Jax was interesting because her knee jerk reactions are now back in action and causes some easy situations to become VERY difficult Also in this book I could really see who the true villain was and might I saywowNow this sequel also holds a very annoying troupe that I really dislike It s the separation of the main couple because they are star crossed But surprisingly I wasn t annoyed with it in this book Most of the book was I missing the romance Yeah duh, I m a romance whore, but it was a bearable kind of missing It s just as good as the separation plot in,World AfterThe sole thing that I didn t really enjoy was the middle of the book It wasn t bad but it was slow and I have a lot of struggles reading slow books I thought that section of the book could really be spiced up a little, where it was a tadentertaining to read But overall I think this was a really well done sequel and once readers get ahold of it they will flip This book has some surprises in it that you WON T see coming I think the writing is just as spot on as it was in book one Another cool fact to know is thatFractured Sunsis done in dual pov, whereasBroken Skieswas not The change in povs isn t bad, if I had to say what it was and what it wasn t then I would say It s not anAllegiantbut aBloodlinesWith how book one ended itfor sureneeded that dual pov aspect I really enjoyed getting into Lir s head and learningabout him and his species I cannot wait for you guys to continue on with Jax and Lir s adventures because you won t be disappointed and you ll be very very surprised Full spoiler review will be posted after the book releases Wow You did it again, Theresa Kay This book kept

KAY, In the face of everything we ve been through, both together and separately, nothing matters right now but the fact that, for this moment, we are both breathing and not alone I don t even know where to begin I guess by thanking the book gods first because Fractured Suns isn t a product of Second Book Syndrome Fractured Suns is not a filler so if you loved the first book, Broken Skies, and you re afraid that the sequel will disappoint you please banish that thought rig DEAR THERESA KAY, In the face of everything we ve been through, both together and separately, nothing matters right now but the fact that, for this moment, we are both breathing and not alone I don t even know where to begin I guess by thanking the book gods first because Fractured Suns isn t a product of Second Book Syndrome Fractured Suns is not a filler so if you loved the first book, Broken Skies, and you re afraid that the sequel will disappoint you please banish that thought right away Second, thank you Theresa for not letting your readers down That looooooong time you took to release the sequel is oh so worth it D I already know that Theresa will drop a bomb but I didn t expect it to be this explosive Fractured Suns started with Jax already living in the woods with her brother, Flint, Peter and her grandfather At first I thought I have to wait ages for Jax and Lir s reunion but Theresa is full of surprises, she gave that moment to her readers immediately and introduced a deeper plot Turns out, Fractured Suns isthan just the love story of Jax and Lir Its action packed, dramatically written and fast paced New characters will be introduced, old ones will make appearance and the challenges that our main characters will face will be doubled Because this isn t about the two of them any the whole world, at least what s left of it, is at stake.I always knew that Jax was a badass and kind of a softie especially when in comes to the people she cares about But here at Fractured Suns, you will get to know her even better Jax went through a lot in this book I ll warn you now that it wasn t smooth sailing through the whole novel Jax is still understanding things about herself and going through all of this with trust issues I LOVE LOVE LOVE the character progression that happened Jax is still caring and badass but she absolutely grew up a lot in this book She learned, she made mistakes and she fought I just know that I will root for Jax whatever happens.Theresa Kay heard my prayers and gave us Lir POV s and it was golden Bond or no bond, she is my future and I will not let her go again Feeeeeeels, people Feels I have nothing but FEELS.I honestly can t say anything any without turning into a crazy fangirl who will just type nonsense about my love for Jax and Lir so I really have to stop right here Fractured Suns is absolutely satisfying and worth the wait Theresa Kay just proved why this series deserves to be on your reading list Though reunited with her brother, and surrounded by Flint, Peter, and her newfound grandfather, Jax Mitchell has never felt alone After going to the city to get some much needed answers from Lir, she is forced to leave him behind and return to the cabin where enemies from her past await But there are bigger things at stake than revenge, and she finds herself traveling with some unexpected companions toward a place she hoped to never see againAfter being imprisoned and tortured on the orders of his uncle, Lir hasn t seen daylight or linked to anyone in weeks, and the pain and loneliness is almost too much to bear But Jax s visit gives him renewed hope and the strength to continue fighting his uncle s influence over the E rikon, even when things look hopelessWhile Jax and Lir fight separate battles, their missions have in common than they realize It s a race against time to stop men driven by greed and power But the ones they trust the most might be the very people working against them and family doesn t mean what it used to Will they recognize their friends from their enemies in time to save the people they love or will they lose each other in the process
