Review of Fissure by Marilyn Almodovar!!

By Marilyn Almodovar
YA Paranormal Romance

Baxter Jacobs just survived the worst Sweet Sixteen in history: buried in a coffin, hunted down by assassins, and losing almost everything that mattered to her. She’s ready for some normalcy, but “normal” won’t play any part of this Time Bender’s future.
Now that the immediate threat is over, Baxter learns just how much the English Council expects of the newest Interred. The pressure has her seriously considering her uncle’s offer to take her to New York, especially since she thinks it will keep her Healer, Jack, from overusing his abilities. Knowing the New York Council’s ranks are filled with beings using dark powers, however, makes her hesitate.
Before she can choose, the decision is wrenched from her. Fissures in Time result in a new battle with an old enemy. Someone she thought she’d lost reenters her life, and she’ll discover a web of lies woven into the fabric of Time…lies only she can unravel. Baxter will have to use her growing abilities to try and reveal the truth, even if it forever changes the reality she knows.

Oh.... My.... God.... That's what I have to say.... 

Also, you have to read the first book Interred to understand what happens in this book.  

Baxter is still reeling from what happened to her on her birthday.  All she wants from life at this point is to feel normal.  Unfortunately, she's very far from normal.  Jack, her healer, is at her side, making her swoon on a regular basis.

When she discovers little fissures in time, her world once again turns on it's axis.  To make matters worse, Jack disappears and she can't communicate with him to find where he may be.  Also, there are plans in motion that she and her friends must stop before anyone else is hurt.  It doesn't help that she has to deal with a future version of herself that may or may not be up to no good.  All she wants to have Jack back at her side, and know that he's ok.

I really really loved this book!  I thought Interred was awesome (which it was!), but this book was more awesome.. does that make sense??  When I saw the future Baxter I was like... wha?????? Totally threw me for a loop on that one... 

Baxter suddenly finds herself in a position where she doesn't know who she can trust and who is out to hurt her.  She decides to take the risk it's going to cause time, but it means trusting someone she never thought she would trust again.  

Great job Marilyn!!!  I can't wait to read book #3!!!!

Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.
As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.
To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.
As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.
