THE SHATTERED COURT was one of those books that drew me in with a gorgeous cover, and was left to live up to expectations. Luckily, though not without issues, THE SHATTERED COURT was an enjoyable fantasy novel, set in a world very similar to historical England with the twist of magic to make it more interesting.

BLOOD KIN was one of those books that I really didn’t want to put down as it hit all of my buttons for an entertaining story. It had the intrigue and danger of a spy novel, intense action scenes, and a romance that evolved organically over the course of the story. One of the most exciting scenes for me was actually not very big on action as it took place in a opera hall where people went to watch and be watched. It felt intense and scary as every action was noticed and being analyzed. The wrong actions could spell failure in Holly and Guy DuCaine’s mission. This scene expertly shows how Holly’s spy world has just as much danger and nuance as Guy violent Templar knight world.
