Fragments (Partials #2)
by Dan Wells

Goodreads synopsis:

This synopsis contains a spoiler for the first book in the series. If you have not read Partials, but intend to, do not read this synopsis.

Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is only just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues as 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 Kira knows she is a part of, a plan that could save both races. Her allies 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 they will both discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn’t even know existed.

I read Partials, the first book in this series, earlier on in the year (around when it was released). You can read my review for it here. I did quite enjoy it, but thought that the middle section was a little slow in places. However, the ending definitely made up for this, and it ended on such an exciting cliffhanger, that I have to find out what happens next! I'm hoping that now we're into the series a bit more, and the premise is fully set up, that book two will blow book one out of the water.
I have high hopes for this one, so I'm hoping that it doesn't let me down. There is a long wait for it as well, as it's not released in the UK, until March 2013!
