Bravery and Pain
If you enjoy heat and passion with erotica and danger you will find this to your liking. It is riddled with bits of history and twisted into a paranormal tale, full of greed, romance and a beauty that shines through in the form of Cecile…There is a deadly menace as well, creeping forward and devouring all that is pure and innocent. Inexorably the Jews are hunted and their supporters as well. The times were horrible for so many, leaving broken homes and families in the wake of Germany’s fury.

Lush and Poignant
This is thought-provoking literature that explores female sexual equality and the nefarious act of unwanted dominance in every form.

Unique Story
The story’s background is set during a dark and bleak time in history, yet Alia’s light shines throughout the novel. It will give you a sense of hope that good did exist during that terrible time—that brave souls reached out and helped at the cost of their own safety and even their lives.

Fantastic Book
This is a fantastic book of love and light…
Traci Slatton does a fantastic job of recreating Paris 1939 – 1942 with the fear and torture of occupied France. But the real stars of Broken are the characters: Alia – a fallen angel grieving after the loss of her child, Pedro – a Spanish Jew who becomes part of the resistance and Alia’s lover,  Josef – A Jewish musician who is also part of the resistance and Alia’s lover as well, and Suzanne and Cecile – a  Jewish widowed mother and daughter who live next door to Alia.
All of these characters come to life on the page but particularly Alia. She is the one who suffers the most in this novel all for the sake of saving the young widow and her daughter whom she has come to love in her years on Earth. Alia, after the loss of her daughter Ariel falls to Earth specifically during the time when the world is about to suffer because she wants to suffer herself and drowns her sorrows in the bedroom.
The love she feels for the young child and mother that are her neighbors causes her more suffering but this is a suffering she gladly goes through to keep them safe. She performs sexual favors for a high ranking German soldier in order to keep the little family under the radar as long as possible.  She turns in Pedro, knowing he will most likely die, in order to keep the small family from grieving the loss of Josef. In the end she even sacrifices herself in order to not only save them but also to redeem herself. I cannot even begin to describe the beautiful way this book is written and the deeper meanings held within its pages.
badge5v4To be honest there was nothing about this book that I didn’t like. It flows beautifully and it is one of those books that stays with you even after you are done reading it. For this reason I give this book five stars! I will reread this book more than once and recommend it to all my friends and, readers; I highly recommend it to you too.

Sucked me in on page 1
This book follows Alia, a fallen angel, who has decided to spend her mortal time on earth in Paris during the Nazi occupation. Daily she fights to warn and protect others from the atrocities of war. She fights for her good friend and neighbor and her daughter. She fights to protect those that cannot protect themselves.

This book was very good. It had me sucked in on page one. It was full of history and so it was right up my alley. It was also sad. Alia can see the future in small bits, but has no control over the fates of the others. And with a book based in a worn torn country, it is expected to carry some sadness for the character. While yes, it is a story it is also based in real life history.

Overall, the writing was good. At times it seemed wordy. It also had a lot of dialog that I had a hard time understanding, but that is expected since it is written from a Parisians point of view.

I definitely enjoyed the book with its good storyline and its history. The ending was awesome and something I was not expecting.
