Review: The Broken Crown




The Broken Crown by Amryn Cross

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this galley from YA Bounds Tour for an honest review, and would like to thank them and the author for sharing

There are many aspects to this book making it an interesting read. The princess who can decide where she fits in and a secret that could get her killed. The story does include many religious undertones, but I do not think this is really something that takes away from the book. In fact I liked it for that reason also.

There are not many fantasies that can include a religious aspect and make it work. However the Broken Crown did. I recommend it to people who like to read fantasy, fans of authors such as Kiera Cass

Summary from Goodreads:

Princess Emilia Aurelius was only seven when she watched her mother die at the hands of her father—martyred for believing in the God of the Atlas Empire’s Insurgo rebels. At seventeen, exiled to a military outpost where no one knows her true identity, she’s vowed to leave her royalty behind and explore the truth of the Insurgo rebels her mother loved. 

When the Emperor of Atlas summons the princesses from each of the provinces to the imperial city to choose a wife for the crown prince, Emilia must leave her military life behind to join a royal court rife with cunning and intrigue. Navigating the waters of court politics and budding love are treacherous on their own, but Emilia fears for her life should anyone learn of her Insurgo sympathies. 

With an unlikely ally in the captain of the emperor’s guard, Emilia must uncover the truth of the Insurgos, start a revolution, and learn to become the princess she’s vowed never to be, all while protecting her heart from a prince who could sign her death warrant.

One thought on “Review: The Broken Crown

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It did have a good feeling of The Selection, and also reminded me of Rachelle Dekker’s The Choosing. I can’t wait for more!
