Waiting on Wednesday #42: ‘Fragments’ by Dan Wells


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, Hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Dan Wells

Publication Date:
February 26th, 2013

Balzer + Bray

Hardcover, 576 pages

Author Dan Wells is back with the sequel to the sci-fi blockbuster Partials, which Pittacus Lore called a “thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth’s future I’ve seen yet.”

After discovering the cure for RM, Kira Walker sets off on a terrifying journey into the ruins of post-apocalyptic America and the darkest desires of her heart in order to uncover the means—and a reason—for humanity’s survival.

Dan Wells extends his richly imagined, gritty world and introduces new memorable characters in this second installment in the Partials Sequence.

Good Reads


Partials was soo good, and the world building was epic. So of course this is going to be one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts. Doesn’t the description sound so exciting? I love the cover too.

What do you think of my pick this week?
