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.

Firstly thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book for review.

Before you pick this book up let me warn you that it’s a big book. Now that may seem really obvious but with the world of e-books it’s not as obvious as it used to be. With a paperback it’s pretty obvious the bigger the book the longer the story. But with ebooks it’s not really the same.

Story Sparks thinks she’s just a normal girl at college. She has her besties Adam and Elliot and life is pretty good. Story is on break from college so her and Adam decide to spend the day hiking. Before they get anywhere Elliot turns up insisting that Story needs him, that she’s in trouble and he’s there to help her. After she calms him down they all spend the day together but after a swim in the lake they end up in another world.

Here Story is forced to remember who she is and what happened to her many years before. Everyone is telling her that she must save the worlds from crumbling. Story doesn’t quite believe she is who everyone else think’s she is. To her she’s just a normal college girl. She can’t save the world.

She is forced to start a journey with her besties and this mysterious warrior to save the worlds. Firstly she must overthrow Brink who has taken it upon himself to rule this land. As the journey continues she is joined by many other characters who will wage a war with Brink to help Story to save he worlds.

There are many well known characters in this book but one that does stick out for me was Snow and Beauty. I absolutely loved the twist on their characters.

I really enjoyed this book.This book has a bit of everything. There are many moments that made me laugh and there were some  when I wept. You instantly love the characters and you find yourself cheering Story and her gang on to win.

About K.M. Randall

As a girl, K.M. always wished she’d suddenly come into magical powers or cross over into a Faerie circle. Although that has yet to happen, she instead lives vicariously through the characters she creates in writing fantasy and delving into the paranormal. When K.M. is not busy writing her next novel, she is the editor-in-chief of a blog covering the media industry, as well as an editor with Booktrope Publishing. She has a master’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University and a bachelor’s degree in English-Lit from Nazareth College of Rochester. K.M. lives in Upstate New York’s Finger Lakes region with her husband and her extremely energetic little boy. Fractured Dream is her first novel.
