This is the third book in the Rebels of Sandland series, a dark high school romance series set in the UK. Being set in the rather gritty world of urban/suburban London is just one of the many things that makes this series unique.
Finn, the hero of Fractured Minds, is introduced in the first book in the series and I’ve been waiting desperately for his book because a) I knew I’d love him, and b) I knew he’d destroy me. He did both!
For those readers who aren’t comfortable with the hero bullying the heroine, here isn’t a ton of bullying in this book. There’s some hot and cold/push and pull, but only because Finn is desperately trying to protect his girl from a very bad man. If anything Finn himself is bullied by a surprising new force in the Sandland underworld. I don’t want to spoil the twists and turns of this book, but they grabbed me by the throat. I was so very afraid for Finn from start to finish!
There’s a ton of angst, a shed-load of tears, and some incredibly beautiful moments waiting for you in this book. Trigger warning for child abuse (done in flashback and not graphic).
I’m so impressed with this series, which is going from strength to strength. Finn’s book could be read as a stand-alone, but you’ll get more out of it if you read the whole series. You won’t be sorry!
