Title: A Heart so Fierce and Broken

Find the heir, win the crown.
The curse is finally broken, but Prince Rhen of Emberfall faces darker troubles still. Rumors circulate that he is not the true heir and that forbidden magic has been unleashed in Emberfall. Although Rhen has Harper by his side, his guardsman Grey is missing, leaving more questions than answers.
Win the crown, save the kingdom.
Rumored to be the heir, Grey has been on the run since he destroyed Lilith. He has no desire to challenge Rhen–until Karis Luran once again threatens to take Emberfall by force. Her own daughter Lia Mara sees the flaws in her mother’s violent plan, but can she convince Grey to stand against Rhen, even for the good of Emberfall?
The heart-pounding, compulsively readable saga continues as loyalties are tested and new love blooms in a kingdom on the brink of war.
I was pretty excited about Grey getting a POV in this because he was my favorite in the last book! Now, I was sad at first that we wouldn’t be getting much from Rhen or Harper, but I will say, I really liked the new addition of Lia Mara! She was strong in so many ways!
Oh man, so some crap goes down in this book that I wasn’t too pleased about concerning Rhen. Some of his actions were, WOW! But I won’t give any spoilers. Also, Harper made me irritated as well. I still don’t understand why Jake wasn’t that concerned about his sister either. But that’s okay because Grey’s and Lia’s POVs had me all in, and I was fully emerged in this story! I just really loved their dynamic together. To me it felt more real than Rhen’s and Harper’s did in the last book. Also, I loved Iisak and Tycho so much!
There are some interesting twists and wonderful dialogue. And that freaking ending! I seriously just need the next book already, because I’m very curious to see how everything is going to play out!
