Review @KonstanzS - Newtimber: Fractured by Karen E. Hoover @karenehoover

Newtimber: Fractured

Genre:  YA Urban Fantasy

Publisher:  Trifecta Books

Book Synopsis: 

There was absolutely no way a black dragon hovered outside of Newtimber. Sianna rubbed her eyes, but the dragon was still there, clutching a round object that looked like a spotted egg. And then the egg fell, hitting the ground like an atomic bomb, sending out waves of a slow-moving fog that distorted everything it touched.

The citizens of Newtimber change. The old man down the street stretches into a screaming tree. Sianna’s skateboarding friend, Matt, transforms into a giant green dragon. Pegasus. Sirens. Griffins. Vampires. Zombies. Creatures from the myths of every culture come to life through the people.
Even Sianna changes, her skin becoming stone hard, and she gains the ability to travel from the human realm into the dimension of the fae, using it to free her father from prison and enlist his aid in battling the evil bent on taking over the world.

One person to heal a family, a town, and save the world. It seems an impossible task, but with the help of her new friends, it could happen.


~ About the author ~ 

Karen E. Hoover has loved the written word for as long as she can remember. Her favorite memory of her dad is the time he spent with Karen on his lap, telling her stories for hours on end. Her dad promised he would have Karen reading on her own by the time she was four years old … and he very nearly did. Karen took the gift of words her dad gave her and ran with it. Since then, she’s written two novels and reams of poetry. Her head is fairly popping with ideas, so she plans to write until she’s ninety-four or maybe even a hundred and four.
Inspiration is found everywhere, but Karen’s heart is fueled by her husband and two sons, the Rocky Mountains, her chronic addiction to pens and paper, and the smell of her laser printer in the morning.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!
***Received the ebook as part of the tour for an honest review

The cover is beautiful and Sianna definitely is looking like a warrior.  The green world and light just completes everything :)  Only thing off is her skin color, but it would probably look cartoony if they tried to fix it.

This is my first time reading Karen’s work, and I really enjoyed it.  This world she created is pretty cool.  I love how she mixed reality and fantasy together in this unique world she has created.  I definitely see potential in this series for greatness. A couple of the parts were a little slow for me, but for me this happens when a new world is being created and understandable.

There is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster at least for me concerning Sianna.  I laughed, cried, and cheered her on.  Her family and Matt are an amazing support system as well as the rest of her newly acquired family.  I can’t wait to see what happens next in this exciting new world especially with the changes I saw coming.

I recommend this to YA readers who believe in the Fae because you will enjoy this world.  I think I need to get this book in paperback to share with my students :)
