Shattered is the second book in the Open Heart series by Sharon M. Johnston. I really enjoyed the first book in the series (Divided) and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the sequel.

In this book the main character, Misha, is on a quest to find and rescue them before their evil twin kills them. A quest that by no means is as easy as I might sound. During this time we also get to follow Misha and her relationship with Ryder in more detail since half of the book is written from Ryder’s point of view.

After reading Shattered I do wish I had read the first book again before starting the sequel. I found myself feeling a bit lost and I didn’t recognize the characters even though this book basically picks up right where the first one ends. I do think it would have been much different had I read Divided again.

The book is very well written, and just like Divided, this book is full of surprises and twists. You can never guess what will happen next and I love it. I did struggle a bit with keeping Misha’s and Ryder’s POV apart. The dual POV also made the story lack a bit of depth and I kept wishing I’d been given more intel to Misha’s inner thoughts and feeling. It became a bit shallow at times. But still, a great book with such a different plot and the twists and turns this book send the reader on is amazing.

You can get the book at Amazon.
