5 Star Splintered by Curt Locklear is one ofthose novels that demand your
attentionbecause of its well-crafted and well-developed plot line.
Everythingwas connected so well, every character was so perfectly
drawnand described that I felt at one with them. The story itself
wasvery engrossing. You can feel the emotion right from
the get go andyou will find it till the very last word of the novel. Tabia Revneer - ReadersFavorite
What I admire most about this manuscript, beyond the cleanprose, is the depth and breadth of character development within the manysubplots. With each main character, although there are many to mentally holdspace for across more than three hundred pages, the writer delivers the rightamount of interesting specifics or perspectives to keep the reader grounded andinvested in each character. The dialogue is particularly spot-on. Tracy Crow
Splintered, the second bookin Curt Locklear's Asunder trilogy is a tale painted on a broad canvas, pickingup where the first book left off. From the burnedout homes of hapless families,lost to the lawlessness of war to the hallowed halls of the White House,Locklear spins a tale of the American Civil War with a brutal honesty seldomfound in period works. It is a tale told about people, neither completely evilnor completely virtuous. Just being people.
The story ultimately centers around the love triangle,readers began realizing will happen between Cyntha Favor, who in grief believesthat her husband had died in battle, her husband Joseph who had lost hismemories but is now slowly beginning to remember bits and pieces of his life,and Sara Reeder who has fallen hopelessly in love with Joseph.
A new set of characters has been added in thisbook, including a group of Texas Cowboys, driving a herd of mustangs to FortSmith Arkansas. Bruce Kuhn
