Rating : 4 hearts




When Ambert gets a hold of a notebook containing The Regime’s fatal flaw, all eyes lie on him as he searches for an answer to stop Dreamers and The Regime from war. If he wishes to keep his friends safe, he can’t let them discover his secrets — including his past with the elusive Commander.
He’s not the only misfit in the crowd. Branded as an oracle, Calista has nowhere to hide. Her dreams predict the future, and they now might be the only key to saving Wes’ sister and protecting the growing rebellion. If she learns to trust the rebel lurking inside her.
One false move won’t just get them killed; it’ll fracture the growing resistance. Ambert and Calista must find the truth lurking in their creativity-centered world before The Commander splits apart their friendship — and with it, the rebellion itself.


Splintering Reality is told from Ambert’s point of view as well as Calista’s.

Ambert tries to get closer to his late mother by reading the newspaper she left him. He’s going to discover a lot of things, good and not so good. Ambert is a lovely boy, he is passionate, sensitive and protective, yet he doesn’t want to hurt anyone and is willing to sacrifice himself if necessary. I like him, he’s a brother who loves Enya, he leaves Calista a little bit, but deep down he still loves her.

Calista is sad because Ambert spends more time with Enya than with her. She also discovers important things about May and will soon have to learn to become brave. Which is not yet the case. I’m less attached to Calista, it’s probably because of her age. I hope she will grow up in the next volume and mature because sometimes these reactions annoy me. She’s sensitive, but she watches people die and get attacked without reacting and that irritates me.

I love Enya very much, she is a strong young girl, who protects those she loves.

We also discover new charming characters and others less so.

Wes hasn’t changed much, even though we’re discovering some things about him.

I liked Splintering reality, the characters get deeper into the problem and they will try to save the world. But my God, this ending is just awful, the wait for the next volume to be long.

Quick word: A second volume that immerses us in the atmosphere.


Splintering Reality est raconté du point de vue d’Ambert ainsi que de celui de Calista.

Ambert essaie de se rapprocher de sa défunte mère en lisant le journal qu’elle lui a laissé. IL va découvrir un tas de choses, bonnes et moins bonnes. Ambert est un garçon adorable, il est passionné, sensible et protecteur, malgré tout il ne veut faire de mal à personne et est prêt à ses sacrifier si besoin. Je l’aime bien, c’est un frère aimant pour Enya, il délaisse quelque peu Calista mais au fond il l’aime quand même.

Calista de son côté est triste car Ambert passe plus de temps avec Enya qu’avec elle. Elle découvre aussi des choses importantes sur Mai et elle va devoir vite apprendre à devenir courageuse. Ce qui n’est pas encore le cas. Je suis moins attachée à Calista, c’est probablement dû à son âge. J’espère qu’elle grandira dans le prochain tome et qu’elle prendra de la maturité parce que parfois ces réactions m’agacent. Elle est sensible mais elle regarde les gens mourir et se faire attaquer sans réagir et ça m’énerve.

J’aime beaucoup Enya, c’est une jeune fille forte, qui protège ceux qu’elle aime.

Nous découvrons aussi de nouveaux personnages charmants et d’autres moins.

Wes quant à lui n’a pas trop changé même si nous découvrons certaines choses sur lui.

J’ai bien aimé Splintering reality, les personnages rentrent plus profondément dans le fond du problème et ils vont essayer de sauver le monde. Mais mon dieu, cette fin est juste atroce, l’attente du prochain tome à être longue.

En bref : Un deuxième tome qui nous plonge dans l’ambiance.
