Trigger Warnings: Animal cruelty; Animal death; Child abuse; Child death; Gun violence; Miscarriage
As the explosive conclusion to Teri Terry’s Slated trilogy, Shattered certainly did not disappoint. Action-packed and full of drama, Shattered was the most amazing ending to the Slated trilogy that I could have ever wanted.
In Shattered, everything that we think that we know about Kyla and her past is questioned multiple times – to the point where we don’t know what is and isn’t true anymore. Once again, this left me questioning everything that was happening, and I was always predicting what I thought would happen next, and who had had what significance in previous parts of Kyla’s story.
Just like its two predecessors, Shattered was constantly unravelling more and more questions throughout. As I was reading on towards the ending, I was wondering how all the questions would be resolved – if they would be. But everything wrapped up so neatly at the end, and in such a lovely way!
For me, the most incredible part was the ending – and by ending I mean from when the tension multiplied by about a million when Kyla was given the key (so a significant chunk of the book 😂). As soon as I got to this point, I only stopped reading when I really had to, and even when I wasn’t reading it, my mind was whirring with what could happen next, and if I would be reading the ending that I wanted to.
All of the character arcs in the Slated trilogy are incredible – each character changed so much in such a short space of time. Some characters are completely unrecognisable when you compare them at the start and at the end of the series.
I also love the titles and the back covers of the three Slated books. I feel that the titles are like a metaphor for Kyla’s new, slated personality, and the back covers are illustrating the titles.
I’m definitely going to be buying Fated once I’ve finished the remainder of the books on my bookshelf (8 to go!), as I’m desperate to know what happened before Slated started.
