Publisher's Summary

Sarah Kozloff, author of Queen of Raiders, continues her breathtaking and cinematic epic fantasy series The Nine Realms with Book Three, A Broken Queen, and all four audiobooks will be published within a month of each other, so you can binge your favorite new fantasy series.

Time can heal all wounds, but not all wounds are visible.

Barely surviving her ordeal in Oromondo and scarred by its Fire Spirit, Cerulia is taken to a recovery house in Wyeland to heal from the trauma. In a ward with others who are all bound to serve each other, she discovers that not all scars are visible, and dying can be done with grace and acceptance.

While she would like to stay in this place of healing, will she ever be able to the peace she has found to re-take the throne?

Phenomenal Series Keeps Building Up Suspense

I started this series after looking around for another fantasy world to explore. This series came up several times. I'm so glad I started it. While the entire series moves at a somewhat slow pace, the story writing has been excellent. There has not been excessive magic usage to bail out the hero at the exact time (although this book has a bit more intervention by spirits). This book ends on a cliffhanger. I can't even imagine what material lies ahead as I thought the series could end with another chapter or two. l'm starting the final book immediately!

Masterful!

Each book in this series of four is more skillfully wrought and subtle than the last. The writing is superb, the characters rich in depth and humanity. You will absolutely fall in love with these wonderful people. Don't miss out on this!

I am sure if you got this far you know the story is addicting

I couldn’t help but immediately download this book after finishing Book 2. I did manage to rip through it in a speedy manner. The story is certainly addicting. I would say though the events are a bit slower in this book and a bit of a lead up for what is to come next so as a stand-alone this isn’t the favorite of the series.

New Lands, New Trials, and New MC

Not really "new" MC, but one that has to overcome harsh trials and build herself back up again, which can be gathered both from the third installment's title, and where book 2 left us.

Initially, as we get into the meat of the MC's journey in this book, I was dreading a long, drawn-out recovery like that in Book 2 of Megan Whalen Turner's "The Queen's Thief" series. Luckily, such was not the case here! I was surprised at how well Sarah Kozloff handled these events and pushed the story forward at a comfortable, reasonable, and believable pace. Bravo! I didn't lose interest for a moment! At the end of book 3, my anticipation for this tale's conclusion has ratcheted to new heights!!

I really like the overall pace of this series, and feel that each portion of the MC's life and the political climate/events of the world around her were presented in such a way that was both easily followed/understood and kept a listener riveted.

Again, the narrator. As discussed in my previous reviews of books 1 and 2, the narrator has massive theatrical talent and acting chops. It's amazing that the voice for each character (no matter how minor) can evoke so much of their personality, background, and emotion. Although, I must reiterate that "over-acting" is also present at times, However, I applaud Imogen Church! Wonderful job!

And I'm off to book 4!

Still amazing

I'm still loving this series! As always the narrator is magnificent in her ability to sound like a full cast, and I love and adore the characters especially the title character, and of course I still failed to make last more than a week... I look forward to the closing story. I hope the author is hard at work on her next book... I really appreciate the whole series being ready at once, thank you author for your marvelous work.

Overly Dramatic Reading Voice

I'm enjoying the story line of these books and looking forward to the next book. Unfortunately I'm finding it difficult to listen to the narrator. It feels like every sentence is read with great drama, which is often not necessary. I think I will need to buy the books to read then in a calmer voice.
