Fractured Dream Review and Giveaway

Fractured Dream by KM Randall
Published by: Booktrope
Published On: June 21, 2014
Genre: Fantasy
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.

My Thoughts:
If you love dark fairy tales, mysteries, and fantasies then this is the book for you. There is something for everyone in this book. The author did a great job of world building.  For those who like romance in their stories the author has even covered that base.  I am not a big fan of romances.  However, the romance in this book is not over the top.  I especially loved the idea of the character, appropriately named Story.  She is not only a hero in the world of Tressla, but also in her earthly world. Story is one of those characters I had trouble liking in the beginning of the book.  As the story progresses we see lots of growth in the character.  This made her more likable further into the book.  This is a really great book that I know young adults and adults will both like.
