Bent, Not Broken by Suki Sather
Delaney is an ordinary college student with good grades and a bright future in anthropology and a part-time job at the mall with her best friend for as long as she can remember. She loves music and is working to master Krav Magra. Her loving adoptive parents and three foster sisters are the center of her very routine, normal life.
Delaney also struggles with strange dreams and feeling lost and afraid, and though her Death Watcher is always right next to her, she has no clue he is there in the shadows protecting her, or the truths about her past that make it so important for her to be shielded in the stability and normalcy those who love her crusade to maintain around her.
The fight has only just begun in a war that has raged since the birth of humanity.
Can darkness conquer the light or will Delaney awaken and decide that ordinary is truly over rated?
I'm not sure why, but I had a hard time getting into this book in the beginning. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would since the blurb sounded so interesting. With that being said, I did eventually get pulled into the story and I ended up enjoying it!
Bent, Not Broken is the kind of book that I could definitely see becoming a movie. I think that having a visual would actually help with the confusion in the beginning of the book. I don't mind reading books that have multiple POVs but usually they switch at each chapter. At times, this book had them switching mid-chapter and that is what confused me the most.
The storyline was great and the POV confusion wasn't enough to make me stop reading! I would still recommend reading this even with the bit of confusion. There were also a few "scenes" that I just skimmed past because I'm not into reading that kind of thing but, again, it wouldn't keep me from recommending it. This is a very action packed book! VERY! If you're a squeamish type of person... well... WARNING! It is super detailed but that makes it so much better! 3.5 to 4 stars!
