    One thought on “Broken”

    1. The second book in The Enemy Inside series from Vanessa Skye, Broken, leads the reader willingly to the slaughter house only to be rudely shocked when things go awry. And awry they seriously go.I liked the insights into Berg's thinking this time. The way she thinks and nuts things out really sing to me as a reader as being very realistic. I drew the same comparisons and came to the same conclusions she did with the same information, it meant I was left with a strong sense of camaraderie with her [...]

    2. ReviewThis book whoah THIS Book!A little insight on the author of “Haunted Book Case”… I have been diagnosed with clinical depression/situational depression years ago. It is very important that I mention this prior to reviewing “Broken” by Vanessa Skye. . . as it is very pertinent to where my mind was just prior to starting this novel. I had a depression breakdown about a week before starting this book. Little did I know, when requesting this book for review from Net Galley, that I’ [...]

    3. Vanessa Skye has done it again with another amazing novel. Detective Alicia “Burg” Raymond is back with new suspects to chase, new criminals to catch and a surprise in her personal life that she never saw coming. I’m always a little hesitant when it comes to sequels. The second is always lacking something for me, it just never measures up to the expectations I’ve set for it as a reader. But this book? This book is amazing, just as great as Skye’s first novel. I was not disappointed. Bu [...]

    4. Very clear character arc. Berg may not be for everyone, and times I wanted to smack her to get her to realize the stupidity of some things, but I love that she's a flawed character. She knows she is. She thinks she's broken, which a lot of women can relate to (tho not as many have her background), and while she is to a degree, she doesn't act like a victim. Now and then she acts out, but she is trying to work through her issues and that's brave and commendable. And fucking hard!On cases, she's l [...]

    5. BROKEN is Berg’s book. Each chapter begins with a snippet of a song defining that chapter. No one can deny Berg is broken; the only question is if she’s broken beyond repair. Berg is fighting the darkness that led her to self- harm in the misguided belief that she’s worthless and what she deserves. Though she’s mistaken in her personal value, Berg has excellent instincts when it comes to justice and who’s guilty. The easing of the hateful, harmful voices in her head is countered by an [...]

    6. I received a copy of this book via NetGalley. Originally posted here: heatherreviews.wordpress/______________________________________________________________________Picking up where the first book left off, Detective Alicia Raymond is still working through her personal issues and her feelings for her ex-partner as two murders cross her desk. Feeling like there’s more to each case, she won’t stop until she finds the answers that she’s looking for.Her new partner has his own secret agenda, b [...]

    7. My View:Violence, sex addiction, relationship problems, office politics and crime – this book has it all! I think my appreciation of the characters and the back story would have been enhanced if I had read the earlier book, The Enemy Inside. There are many references to this earlier work and without this background I think it took me a little while to engage with this narrative. I struggled along piecing together the existing relationships, past misdemeanours and the serious and abusive histor [...]

    8. For the first few pages, I didn't think this was going to be very good, but when I picked it up again it was actually quite enjoyable. It was kind of like watching a well-written cop show on tv - you know that there's no way any real police work would get done with that many head case detectives running around screwing each other and yelling at each other and generally letting their personal lives intrude into every possible aspect of their work, but it's entertaining to see anyway. The plotting [...]

    9. I love Crime Fiction and was thrilled to get my hands upon this book late one Friday night. I finished it by noon the next day! I just loved it. The characters are highly believable, and I found myself (very quickly) caring for each of them. The entire story arc was brilliant, the twist towards the end of the novel was unseen until it was finally revealed in full. Isometric crime fiction is just grossly and gratuitously violent but The Enemy Inside did not fall into this category. Whilst shockin [...]

    10. I loved this so much. The pacing was great, the twists very clever, and the characterization made you unsure of motives, which added to the suspense. I don't want to give anything away, but the bad guys here are particularly evil, and although it wasn’t quite as much of a surprise at the end as the first book, it was still a fantastic read. Some scenes broke my heart, but the ending gives us hope for Berg and Jay. Now I need the third book!
