Book Review: A Heart so Fierce and Broken

A Heart so Fierce and Broken


Rhen’s claim to the throne is being called into question, and Grey is the rumored rightful heir.  

Grey’s been on the run, but he may have to challenge Rhen for the throne for the good of Emberfall.

Thank you to Bloomsbury YA for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  


I often feel that the second book in the series is either the best or the worst book.  For me, A Heart so Fierce and Broken fell into the latter category. I enjoyed A Curse so Dark and Lonely, but it wasn’t my favorite.  What I did like about it, was the characters, and especially Grey, so I was very excited that this book focused on him. However, I felt like the Grey in A Heart so Fierce and Broken, was not the Grey I knew and loved in A Curse so Dark and Lonely.  

In fact, a lot of the characters seemed different in this book, and I didn’t really like any of them.  Rhen was an ass, Harper was lovesick over Rhen, and Grey was for most of the book a bit of a coward. The story was interesting and was the only thing that kept me interested. 

I will probably continue reading this series, but I sincerely hope that the characters get more likable.
