Ruptured takes place on Earth eighty-three years after the plant was invaded by demons. Humans are near extinct. Alana Devereaux is Platoon Commander tasked with hunting down demons and protecting humanity. However, much to her dismay, the Densare Council has sentences her to become a breeder.
Ruptured is the prequel to Anointed which I have not read, but have now put on my to-read list. It is a fast-paced and exciting novella that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Alana is a strong and worthy heroine. She is dedicated to the fight, almost to a fault. She is a good leader, proved by the loyalty of her squad. I felt sympathy for her situation; it would be very difficult and demeaning to endure.
Lieutenant Cade is a piece of work. I did not like the man. He may be a good fighter, but he is a chauvinistic control freak. It is understandable why Alana and Cade would bump heads.
I liked the members of Alana’s squad, especially, Luke and Quinten. They were both reasonable and dependable.
I enjoyed the plot. Maggie Mae Gallagher did an excellent job creating the mood and environment. Ruptured was believable and full of suspense. The ending left me curious about what is going to happen in the next book, Ascended.
