Review: The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott

Monday, May 4, 2015
Why I chose this book:
A few weeks back, I saw Brittany from Please Feed the Bookworm write a review raving about this book. The cover is GORGEOUS, you guys I mean, look at that beauty... and it's fantasy! You guys know how I love my fantasy books. So I knew immediately that I had to have it. Luckily, the publisher was nice enough to grant me access to the title. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Synopsis:
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. (Goodreads)
