I found these series to be well-written, and very inventive and interesting reading. One good sign of a good series is that I found myself unsatisfied whenever I came up against the end of a book or short story. And that is my complaint; 'Fractured' could also be used to describe the confusing and disjointed path that these stories take. You would need to go to the author's website to try to figure out the timeline: The Fractured Series includes (in chronological order): the short stories 'Decode' and '318', followed by 'Defective'. The Fractured Legacy Series consists of: 'Better World', 'Legacy Code', and Paragon'. To make it even more confusing, you can buy all 3 of these stories in one book from Amazon; 'Legacy', which is described as, "Book 1" in the series. As of today, Book 2 does not exist. It is unclear when any new stories will come out, other than Kalquist letting us know on her website that she has "a lot of notes". So, I read them in the wrong order, which is not terrible, but it would have helped if I had figured the timeline out sooner. But worse, both series end rather abruptly, signifying that there is more to come, but who knows when? I would have felt a lot better if at least Autumn Kalquist was able to map out a plan for releasing titles in the future, but she hasn't. So, I'm left hanging, wondering if and/or when I will learn more about some of the intriguing characters that haunt this scary future scenario.
I'm leaving the same review on each of the books in the series.
The glimpse of the world as a whole that we get here is a stark one, and the character Lex is one that seems like she may have quite an edge to her.
4 stars, well written, SciFi, that dives into potential negative possibilities as we evolve our race, lifestyles and world.

Then the main character "318" tells us how much hate she has for them!
318 is a "Protected" and has super-immunity, which is what got her to where she is now. And once she meets Monroe, she wants out. But there is something else for her to do first!
The author packs a lot into a short story and I'd certainly like to know more about what happens to 318 in any follow-on novels.
The novel precedes the Defect series of novellas and the recommended reading order for the series is:-
1) Legacy Code Series: Legacy Code and Paragon.
2) Defect #1 and #2 (Short prequel novellas)
3) Short stories “Decode” and “318″
Can't wait to read next book.Enjoyable reading.
Would recommend to lovers of science fiction.
