Broken by Stace Lee is a very interesting novel that not only has romantic overtones but also has a running supernatural theme which twists in very nicely within the main plot. The main plot is really good and I truly enjoyed it, although it did seem to take sometime to get started with the “getting to know you” phase lasting nearly 80% of the novel. The final problematic part seemed short but to the point and some of the supernatural plot lines were not fully explained nor explored as far as it could have as the novel had much more potential which would have turned this good novel into a brilliant one. As far as first novels go, Stace Lee has had a brilliant original idea that is well written, flows well, holds your interest and definitely worth a read.
