{Synopsis} –In a fractured Britain, the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control. Parents buy designer babies and those with genetic faults are labelled Blemished and shunned from society.

Elena Darcey is just as perfect as the other clones, but there is something different about Elena, because she’s in trouble. After helping Area 14’s most famous criminals escape, Elena has to get out before her teacher– the formidable Margaret Murgatroyd –finds out that she is a sympathiser for the Blemished. The perfect opportunity arises as a beauty pageant promises the winner a trip to London. Will Elena cope with the cut-throat world of a beauty pageant filled with sabotage, violence and betrayal? If she makes it to London, will she find the safe haven she craves? Does she discover more than she'd expected after meeting the mysterious Jake Bloom?

The Fractured is the first part of a spin off series based on The Blemished, which will focus on some of the secondary characters and their stories. Part one follows the life of Elena as she experiences a life changing event.

{My Thoughts} – This is a short book that gives the readers of {the blemished trilogy} some more insight on Elena Darcy. If you have read the previous two {Blemished Books} you would know that she is a GEM and that she was created to be pure perfection. She is also one of few GEM’s that have a soft side for those that are considered the Blemished based on society’s ruling. I enjoyed getting to know her personality more and learning that it hadn’t been a fluke choice of hers when she had assisted in the escape that had taken place in a previous book. This book is a must read for anyone that is a fan of {The Blemished Trilogy}.
