Publisher's Summary

In an epic political fantasy unlike any other, two women clash in a world full of rebellion, espionage, and military might on the far outreaches of a crumbling desert empire.

Touraine is a soldier. Stolen as a child and raised to kill and die for the empire, her only loyalty is to her fellow conscripts. But now, her company has been sent back to her homeland to stop a rebellion, and the ties of blood may be stronger than she thought.

Luca needs a turncoat. Someone desperate enough to tiptoe the bayonet's edge between treason and orders. Someone who can sway the rebels toward peace, while Luca focuses on what really matters: getting her uncle off her throne.

Through assassinations and massacres, in bedrooms and war rooms, Touraine and Luca will haggle over the price of a nation. But some things aren't for sale.

R-Rated Fantasy

The Unbroken is an R-Rated adult fantasy that questions whether the conquered should bow to the conquerers, or if the colonizers should acquiesce to the colonized. The author expertly weaves the question of what truly is a homeland when a person is stolen from one, but raised from nearly infancy in another. And is unwavering patriotism loyalty to one’s place of birth, or to the government who provided for them from not too long after birth? Also, we are shown just how little it takes to gain loyalty from those who are made to feel as though they have nowhere else to go. One can easily illicit gratitude by offering a starving man crumbs, even if they are the ones responsible for burning down his own bakery. The Unbroken feels like the movie Glory with under-notes of Sarafina. Filled with realistic depictions of war, devoid of insta-love, and filled with a sense a keen to urgent-dreariness, this book is ONLY for the strong hearted.

Could not get on with the story

Just lost interest, could not finish it. The narrator was a bit poor so story got lost.
