Summary

Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.

Sworn to a goddess. One with her blade. A heart yet unbroken.

It would have been only one more year of training. One year in the dust and wind of the Calma Desert. But Gandrett Brayton’s fate storms in disguised as a beautiful stranger with a damning secret.

As he forces her into the service of the lord who tore her from her mother’s arms ten years ago to commit her to the Order of Vala, Gandrett is left with a choice: run, or work for the man she despises and earn the chance to see her family again.

Trained with all the weapons she can wield with her hands, Gandrett must learn that at the courts of the shattered kingdom of Sives, her sword won’t help her - especially when it is her own heart on the line.

Fae, magic, and a heart-throbbing adventure will keep listeners entranced until the last minute.

Shattered Kingdom is best-selling author Angelina J. Steffort's new young adult epic fantasy romance about a girl who's heart could change the course of history.

Brilliant start to this high fantasy series

I picked this up when it said fans of Sarah J Maas would like this and I am so glad I did.
This is an epic fantasy romance with a strong female lead you can admire.

Gandrett was torn from the arms of her family when she was just 7 years old and made to train with the order of Vala. This is a life long commitment forced upon where she will dedicate her life to serving the goddess. She has come to terms with this fate and grudgingly accepts by throwing herself into training and her skills as a warrior make her the best of the best.

Now she is asked to help the lord responsible for taking away from her family and help in retrieve his lost son.

Brilliant opening to this series and yet so much more to come and I can’t wait to delve into the rest. You will love this if you like Magic, high fantasy, the Fae and a strong female lead.
All huge ticks in my book.

Great potential male love interests and world building leaving you thirsty for more.

I listened to the audio version and was pleasantly surprised with the male narrators telling of this story.

5/5 as right up my street. No more on audible yet but delighted to see 2 more are on KU.

really struggled with the narration choice

The narrator himself isnt terrible by any means, but he just isn't able to do this particular story justice. I was unable to differentiate between different POVs, as all his characters sound the same. It was an interesting choice on the authors part to choose a male narrator for a book that has a female main character. Especially more so as there were multiple viewpoints and the voice never changes from that of a deep male voice. It t was off-putting and I couldn't get past that. if I go back to this book, it'll be via ebook.

I tried…..but couldnt.

I absolutely could not listen to the entire book. The narration was terrible. I tried changing the speed of his narration but that didn’t help at all. I listened to the first 11 chapters and just couldn’t do it anymore. I really wanted this to be a good book series.

Fascinating

Intriguing plot with lots of twists. I’m very surprised this the only book, since it’s seems there could be more in the world.
The characters are deep.
