Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races.

Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?
Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed.
The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity's time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means—and even more important, a reason—for our survival.
Wells creates a compelling, fantastically complex post-apocalyptic landscape, adding thought-provoking twists to a classic story of humanity creating its own doom...With broad cross-genre appeal and an engaging balance of thematic depth and rip-roaring action, this winner will leave readers clamoring for sequels.

Kira has found the cure to RM and several things about her she didn't know. She now goes on a journey to find out more about who she is and more about te partials. She wants to find out more about what caused RM in hopes that it may just save the humans and partials both. She has people from both sides looking for her as she just may hold the key to the cure. Meanwhile Marcus is still on Long Island. Things are heating up on the island as the Partials are set to move in to find Kira and they won't allow any humans to stand in their way. He has to leave to find help and that help just may come from Partials. They both soon leran there is many secrets they have yet to find and several may just change their lives forever.
Kira has always been a strong girl but to me she really comes into her own in this book. She struggles to figure out just how she feels about her self and she tries to find a way to save both Partials and Humans. She has to make several hard choices in this book and she really grows from them. She never really knows who to trust and has to always watch her back. Above all she does the best she can to help everyone even when she is told she will have to pick a side. Even knowing the truth could hurt her she still works to find out things. Marcus is quite a bit better in this book as he steps up and tries to hold things together. He goes into danger knowing he could be killed just to help the humans even if that means he may have to go against some of those humans. Samm I really enjoyed in this book. He is out to help Kira and has a hard time talking to her. You get to really see inside his head and what his feelings are in this book.
I really enjoyed Partials and I enjoyed Fragments just as much. You really get to see more of the world these people live in and how it may have come to be the way it is. Lots of secrets are revealed many that shocked me and I didn't see the twist coming. In this sequel you get more of a depth for the characters. Many of whom you never really know what side they are on. By side I mean good or evil not Human and Partial. To me you really see both sides of the fractions in this sequel. The author does such a fantastic job sucking you in with the plot and everything you really don't want it to end. Even if you don't like dystopian books I would recommend you try this series. It has tons of action and you never know what will happen.The world create and characters will keep you on the edge of your seat. The only bad thing I have to say about this book is After the ending I can not wait to the next one. I have to know what happens next. I don't dare to guess cause the author has a wonderful way of surprising you.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy for review.

I am an avid reader. I was so disappointed in "Fragments" I read Isolation and Partials before this. Partials was very good but Isolation and Fragments were a waste of money. Everyone seems to be wanting to write sequels to their novels which is well and fine, but each novel should stand alone. I felt that Fragments just STOPPED with no ending. I spent good money for this so it was just sickening. Is there going to be a sequel? Couldn't Mr. Wells have finished this book and still written a sequel. Just very poor to say the least. Unfortunaterly I really enjoyed his writing and concepts but I probably have read my last! I would not recommend this to anyone!

Diving into a sci-fi I couldn't forget, Partials took me away. I knew the sequel would have loads in it, since the first book left off with the one secrets revealed at the very end...
1. Plot. This plot is very complex. There are some point of view of switches, so you must pay attention. Lots is going on so you need to be sure you read every single sentence so that you don't get lost or confused.
2. Characters. All the characters have grown so much. Now that all that was revealed in the last book, Fragments is just picking up the pieces of the last book with much more action. I really like that some of the characters took charge while others betrayed. There is even a new character who changes a lot of things.
3. Love interest. Love interest didn't go far, but some how some way it form a love triangle. At least, Kira is not bouncing back and forth between guys. Still, love interest does get complicated.
4. Action. There is much movement from place to place. Lots of fighting and on the run scenes. It gets your heart racing! I love the build up for such excitement and the scenes themselves are devouring!
5. Back round history. Now that the secret is out, there is much to learn about ParaGen and their motives. The reader get LOTS of juicy info of the planning that ParaGen is doing and has done.
Overall, I think that this story lives up to the first. It is much more define and the bigger picture is coming together nicely. An endless entertaining story, Fragments is great!

While Partials set the stage by detailing the apocalypse, Fragments expands this world and questions its limitations. Fragments is also a story of revelations and discovery and is charged with genuine emotion and drama.
Where Partials was centered around Kira’s perspective, Fragments is centered around the perspective of multiple characters. Their different perspectives provide a clearer, bigger picture of the overarching themes of this book which is how to get along despite differences and dealing with moral dilemmas.
This book is well written with great plot and character development.

At the end of the first book, I was captivated. The human population had been decimated by the Partials and was slowing dying out. Kira had managed to save a baby — the first baby to be born and stay alive in twelve years. As if that alone wasn’t enough, we learned a hidden secret — one hidden so deep that not even the person it was about knew. Kira is a partial! Not just any partial, but a new model that doesn’t have the same limitations or programming.
The book follows Kira as she searches for answers – what is the cure, how is she a partial, who is behind all of this? During her travels she finds herself responsible for Afa, a lone human surviving in the Partial portion of the city. Afa has learned to survive by staying hidden – well, there’s no hiding when with Kira. Samm and Heron eventually join Kira and Afa.
I wish I could delve more into the plot of the book, but I can’t without divulging too much. All I can say is that Fragments gave me a more in-depth look at each of the characters. I was taken beneath the skin of human or partial and into each character’s soul — it is very hard to hide the ugliness of evil or the beauty of good when looking so deeply.

This is a wonderful novel with a great story to tell. The series is terrific! I was shocked by reviews that felt that the book was fragmented. The book is clearly part of a series. A very good one by a very great author. I was so wrapped up in the story that I did not read these reviews untill I finished the series. I loved the story. While most books in a series are written to stand alone personally I wish they were not. Being an avid reader I frequently get frustrated because I have to reread information because of that. I am stuck rehashing old news. When I really just want to know what will happen next. I didn't notice anything missing because I read all of the books in the series in order as they were meant to be read.

I absolutely loved this book and the storyline. Beautifully written, I could imagine everything. The one thing I didn't like, which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, was the explanation for the virus outbreak. It wasn't clearly explained and although I understand it, Dan Wells should have come up with something much better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Bought the books in the series so far! It rare for me to really like a book enough to reread over and over. And when that happens I like to buy them, so I did. To me its different from the stuff I usually read so I really liked the series. I cannot wait till the third book comes out in the spring!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It's a great book. It's not childish, it's full of adventure, with a romance that is built up to slowly. It's very realistic, both in the way it deals with the end of civilization and how it deals with the end of life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
