Genre- Fantasy, Fairytale
Publication Date- June 21, 2014

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.

(no spoilers)

Fractured Dream is the first novel in The Dreamer Saga by K.M. Randall. The novel revolves around Story Sparks, a young lady who is tormented by nightmares that evade her memory once she wakes. She comes back home and takes a hike with her two best friends, only to end up falling into a-whole-nother realm entirely and discovering things about herself she could never imagine possible.

Fractured Dream is an incredibly complex YA fantasy. It has everything you could possibly want--humor, adventure, action and mystery, and it's LONG. I love thick books (and I cannot lie), especially like this one, where there isn't a dull moment to be found and not a second you wish you were doing something else.

The characters are all very well paced and equally amazing. Elliot cracked me up most of the time, and everyone else was utterly fantastic. I didn't want to strangle anyone that is framed in the light of a good guy--and that, for me, is very rare. There is always someone I can't stand--but not here. This is a wonderful story and I recommend it highly!

My Rating:

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.
