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.

Fissure the second book in the Chronicles of the Interred series picks up where the first book left off, with Baxter and Jack recouping from their adventures and battle with Declan. Declan Ashdown had been caught in a time loop for 122 years, and once released had determined to have his revenge against the Time Bender Baxter. So after Baxter and Jackson… her healer… had defeated their enemy, believing it was the end of their troubles. They attempt to heal, and find some normalcy. Although with both having lost so much, including family and those they love….there is an anger and hurt that appears to come between them initially. These strong emotions, on both sides have Baxter and Jackson attempting to protect the other at their own detriment and by going to extremes. But soon the two are joined again as one when having to face those who called themselves allies, but certain facts surface to make them wonder who they can trust but one another! Plus an old enemy returns by causing Fissures (small breaks) in time, in order to destroy the Time Bender once and for all.
I really, really enjoyed this book! the first presented a unique aspect on the paranormal YA and had a fast paced plot which left me breathless by the time I finished it. Fissure did not disappoint. Ms. Almodovar has a talent for telling a story that moves quickly and is full and rich…but in a way that seems effortless. As a reader, I can feel myself becoming lost in Baxter and Jackson’s adventure, while (and I actually caught myself doing this…) (physically)…holding my breathe in anticipation on what will happen next!
I enjoyed the interplay between Jack and Baxter. I will be honest in the first book, (before I knew better) I was actually rooting for Declan and Baxter uniting,…but trust me that quickly change…but I remember feeling as if Jackson was…,lol idk…an intruder… BUT again that was BEFORE I discovered Declan’s true nature! Now the tenderness and fierceness that Baxter and Jack have in desiring to protect one another, the tenderness in the way they speak to one another…just how they are…I love… plus Jack is such a hottie with his green eyes and black hair…I love how the author describes his effortless ability to be swoon worthy:)
I was also surprised at several revelations as the story evolved! (Attempting to not share spoilers is difficult!) Lol
Fissure was well written, fast paced full of intrigue, twist and turns and on the edge of your seat moments that is sure to thrill! I truly recommend to those who enjoy romance and adventure with Paranormal elements!
