Shattered is a thriller with twists and turns that keep you reading and guessing. It's not essential to have read the first two books to catch on, as author Teri Terry expertly weaves the significant details of the first two books into this last one. Kyla is portrayed with depth and complexity and you desperately want her to succeed. Terry's vivid descriptions of the English Lake District are arresting and play an important role as Kyla's memories return.

Near the end, there's an overload of exposition, necessary perhaps to wind up the separate strands of the plot, but it feels rushed. Nevertheless, the finale in the trilogy is fascinating, well-crafted, and masterfully written.
