Broken Visions by Jessica Sorensen

Shattered Promises #3
     "Gemma thought Alex was dead, that she’d made an irreversible mistake and would never see him again. But then her father resets time and she’s given another chance to be with Alex, if she can save the world and get rid of the star.
     Gemma decides to follow in her father’s footsteps and attempt to change the vision of the end of the world. If she can pull it off, then maybe she can have the normal life she’s always wanted and Alex and her can have a chance for a real future.
     But changing visions is dangerous, and sometimes one small mistake can lead to disastrous results."

This book was so much better than the last two, and honestly it's about time.

The first two books the MC was terribly erratic and rather useless. I didn't care one way or another what happened to her, she yelled a lot and her and Alex were like freaking rabbits.

This book had much more story to it, Gemma was actually doing things with out other people telling her what to do, sure before when that would happen she'd complain but still do what she was told. Now when she has an idea and knows ways to help out, and she tells them no and follows through with her plans. She also earns some kick-ass fighting skills.

While I enjoyed the Gemma/Laylen moments, I am really glad the love triangle has dwindled a bit, though I am still fairly certain that sexy vampire Laylen still has romantic feelings for Gemma, and she seems to not feel them as strongly. But this book isn't as focused on the romance, well not entirely.

More mysteries are uncovered, and others are answered. Gemma's mom is bananas, to put things lightly. Aislin has more of a role in this book than she had before, in the other books she was just the one that transported people around and got salty at Gemma for Laylen giving her "do me" eyes. (Laylen is... just the best vampire character in any book)

More about Alex's past is uncovered and more of his human side shown though.

I really like where this book ended, unlike where the last one ended. I am really excited for the next book and I can't wait to see how this story ends.

  1. Your first couple sentences scared me off from this series. If you did not like the first two books why did you keep reading the series?

    1. I liked them, they were just corny and addicting.
