Book Spotlight: Broken by A.E. Rought

Broken isn’t set to release until 2013 but I am already itching to read it. It’s Strange Chemistry’s first release for 2013 and I am telling you guys that I’m loving Strange Chemistry’s line-up. Wah, I really need to get my hands on this book. So to stop my babbling, let’s start introducing!

About Broken


Imagine a modern spin on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein where a young couple’s undying love and the grief of a father pushed beyond sanity could spell the destruction of them all.

A string of suspicious deaths near a small Michigan town ends with a fall that claims the life of Emma Gentry’s boyfriend, Daniel. Emma is broken, a hollow shell mechanically moving through her days. She and Daniel had been made for each other, complete only when they were together. Now she restlessly wanders the town in the late Fall gloom, haunting the cemetery and its white-marbled tombs, feeling Daniel everywhere, his spectre in the moonlight and the fog.

When she encounters newcomer Alex Franks, only son of a renowned widowed surgeon, she’s intrigued despite herself. He’s an enigma, melting into shadows, preferring to keep to himself. But he is as drawn to her as she is to him. He is strangely… familiar. From the way he knows how to open her locker when it sticks, to the nickname she shared only with Daniel, even his hazel eyes with brown flecks are just like Daniel’s.

The closer they become, though, the more something inside her screams there’s something very wrong with Alex Franks. And when Emma stumbles across a grotesque and terrifying menagerie of mangled but living animals within the walls of the Franks’ estate, creatures she surely knows must have died from their injuries, she knows.

I tried reading Frankenstein but I haven’t finished it but I am darn familiar with it. A modern Frankenstein? That gorgeous cover? That blurb? I am so in. Like I said, I will be waiting for this. If I can’t get an ARC or a copy from the author or to join a blog tour, I will absolutely buy it, whatever happens. Haha!

Anyway, there’s still no available book trailer for this but fear not! I will update you guys about eveything I hear about this book. Put it in your TBR and let’s all read it soon!

I'm a TV and film junkie. Be it American, Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese, I watch them all. No wonder I don't have enough sleep and hard drive memory. Hee. And oh, fangirling is my business.
