The Shattered Court Review






Title: The Shattered Court
Author:  M.J Scott
Genre: Adult/Fantasy/Romance/magic
Publisher: Roc
Publication Date:  April 28th 2015

The Blurb: Entangled in a court ruled by tradition and intrigue, a young witch must come to terms with newfound power and desire—and a choice between loyalty and survival.…

The royal witches of Anglion have bowed to tradition for centuries. If a woman of royal blood manifests powers, she is immediately bound by rites of marriage. She will serve her lord by practicing the tamer magics of the earth—ensuring good harvests and predicting the weather. Any magic more dangerous is forbidden.

Lady Sophia Kendall, thirty-second in line to the throne, is only days away from finding out if she will be blessed—or perhaps cursed—with magic. When a vicious attack by Anglion’s ancient enemies leaves the kingdom in chaos, Sophia is forced to flee the court. Her protector by happenstance is Lieutenant Cameron Mackenzie, a member of the royal guard, raised all his life to be fiercely loyal to the Crown.

Then Sophia’s powers manifest stronger than she ever imagined they would, and Cameron and she are inextricably linked in the process. As a witch unbound by marriage rites, Sophia is not only a threat to the established order of her country, but is also a weapon for those who seek to destroy it. Faced with old secrets and new truths, she must decide if she will fight for her country or succumb to the delicious temptation of power.

The Dish:  I was provided this book in exchange for a review .
This did not disappoint me at all, it does start out slow for a tiny moment and from there it picks up and its all action.

Lady Sophia is thirty second in line to the throne and is only days away from finding out if she will be blessed or cursed with magic. The palace is attacked and she is forced to flee with a bodyguard, he is Lieutenant Cameron a member of the royal guard (and happens to be the next queens f*** buddy) as they are fleeing the palace,Sophia's power manifest way stronger than she thought and in the process she and Cameron are linked in the process.

From there everything goes downhill, she is forced to marry Cameron (though neither objects) and is kept n close watch. she finds that she has many enemies mostly inside the same court and after a failed assassination she and Cameron are forced to run away a second time and where the run is only half the surprise.

This is not YA at all, it was categorized wrong, there is much sex and strong language so it's more adult.
I couldn't put the book down, i loved reading about this new world and of course it included magic which is one of my faves. Also female witches in power and held in high esteem though they are only allowed to use earth magic.

I Can't wait till the second book to find out how Sophia and Cameron get a long in what they believe to be an enemy country.


Overall Rating 5 Crowns
