REVIEW: My first impressions of Shattered Secrets was that I didn't like it very much. There were so many words thrown at me and everything felt like it went by in a blur. I actually think the way I felt was exactly/close to how Abigail felt. Having everything thrown at her and being expected to believe everything.

I do think the whole normal girl finds out she isn't so normal is a tad big over played. I would definitely compare this book to Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon. Which isn't a bad thing because I loved that book. But there are tons of books with this concept. At least this one was different and had three different planes to work with. It wasn't all just centered on Earth.

I did enjoy Derrick. He seemed very sweet and definitely sounded attractive. I am still wondering if Abigail's other ability is what makes him like her. I know he wondered that too but maybe her ability makes his own answers unclear even to himself. I do like he kicked himself in the butt too many times and tried to take on too much responsibility. I understand that he was bound to protect Abigail but sometimes too much is just too much.

Mark! EW! I didn't like him from the start of the book but I didn't see him becoming what he became either. He was overly aggressive and too full of himself. I really do hope he changes and, dare I say, comes back from the dark side. I promise you, there aren't cookies over there.

Abigail is one of the strongest main characters I think I have come across. Losing all the people she lost in the short amount of time and then being faced with the reality that she might lose her best friend too. It was just all too unreal and my head would have been spinning. She has so much thrown at her at once I have no idea how she even functioned properly.

This book is filled with emotions, lots of death and so much conflict. I almost feel as though I need to go back and mark every death. Most YA books don't have death. They might have a parent dying but that is always before the book happens. It was definitely a change of pace. And I am glad the author wasn't afraid to kill some people.

Overall, I gave the book 4/5 Kitties.
