The Divided Twin (The Divided Series Book 2) by M. Billiter with Kyle Thomas – Review by Jana Teppih

The Divided Twin (Divided #2)The Divided Twin by M. Billiter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Divided Twin is the second book in M. Billiter’s series Divided that her son Kyle contributed to heavily. I would not recommend you to read it as a standalone as it is the same family as in book one, it is simply that the first book it was Tara, the mother, who was the lead, and in this one it was her sons, the twins Aaron and Branson. By giving us their story, from their point of view, Mary took us into a different direction and also the tone of the story changed into much more ‘young adult’.
If you have read the first book then you know that the series touches upon some very serious subject matters, the mental illness the most central one, and not only from the point of view of the person suffering it but also how it affects the whole family and their friends. As the writer has experience with this type of mental illness that is in the center stage of Divided through her son Kyle then it gets as real as it can and she approaches it all using facts and compassion that makes it even more real.
There are twists and turns and I think it is really the second half of the book when the story got so ramped up that I was left destroyed by the end. I have to say it was hard to keep Branson and Aaron apart and quite often I had to go back to the beginning of the chapter to be reminded of whose head we were in but at the same time I do understand it as they were identical twins and they both suffered from the illness though it took slightly different shape and form from one twin to the other and one of them acknowledge and worked with it and the other one not …
Thank you Mary and Kyle for tackling this taboo subject and sharing it with us! It is a story that will haunt me for days to come!

I was really looking forward to reading the second book in this series as the first one intrigued me so much and again I found it be a fascinating read. The twins, Aaron and Branson, are really complex characters and I have enjoyed trying to understand them. Again the book delves into mental health and I think the authors did a great job with writing about it. I loved all the twists and turns in the story – some of them very unexpected!!
Overall a good read, not my usual genre but a good storyline and complex characters kept my interest throughout.

5 out of 5 stars

The story The Divided Twin (The Divided Series Book 2) by M. Billiter with Kyle Thomas is a psychological thriller book. It is a story that pulled me in from the beginning and I was hooked. It is a book that had my emotions going up and down. The story tells the tale of Aaron and Branson. They are twins who are in their final year of college. There is also a third twin, David, who only exists in one of their minds. When their mother is diagnosed with cancer it sets off events that seem to tear the brothers apart. What does the future hold for Aaron and Branson? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me guessing what was going to happen next. You can feel the conflict and at times anger that was part of the character’s lives. I couldn’t help but empathize with Aaron and Branson as they had a hard and difficult childhood. This is a story that has heartbreaking moments as well as moments that will make you think. Don’t miss out on a story that you won’t want to put down until the final page. I found myself thinking about it even after I had finished the book. I would highly recommend reading it.

The Divided Twin (Divided #2)The Divided Twin by M. Billiter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book. This is the second book in this series which I enjoyed just as much if not more than the first. This is a well developed story that kept me turning pages to the end. I had no problem connecting with the characters. They made the story engaging and made it easy to read. They pulled me into the story with ease and made me a part of it. In this story we have Aaron and Branson who are identical twins. There is a third twin, David, but he lives in one of the other twins minds. When their mom gets sick, David starts really coming out. What will happen when he does? This story has a few twists and turns that left me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what would happen next. This is a fast paced page turner that I highly recommend.

Despite the distance between them, Aaron and Branson are united by a turbulent childhood they survived together. As they enter adulthood, David comes out of the shadows to wreak havoc on the real world—his idea of fun.

When their mom is diagnosed with cancer, the ties that bind the twins incite David to tear them apart at the seams.
