Broken Prince

4 Stars/5

Aro, Kei, Prince, Bo and Cain are still on their journey to return Prince to his Elven home, before he weakens and dies. This is complicated with Aro having growing feelings for Prince, as well as dealing with the death of one the boys, meeting new friends and family and Aro mysterious powers seem to be gaining strength. However, there are many dangers in their journey, including a besieged city, wild fey, territorial weres and an enemy far deadlier than all the dangers they have faced combined.
Broken Prince is the second novel in the Broken Ones series, which is a really good YA fantasy book with an interesting plot, nice steady pacing and characters which make you feel like part of the plot. I really like Wylie’s ability to describe the different types of love the characters have for each other, from love between family, to the love between best friends and romantic love.

Aro and her boys just cannot catch a break as they always seem either close to death or trying to run away from danger, however, this does keep you on the edge of your seat. I love how the characters from the last book have grown and we get to find out more about them, although, I would have liked to learn more about Kei and Prince, as I feel we have only just scratched the surface of them. However, one thing I did not like is that I would prefer Aro to end up with Kei as he is nice and is a better person for her, and it also feels a bit wrong that there is romantic tension between Aro and Prince as he is decades, maybe even centuries old and she is a 16 year old girl.

I will definitely be reading the next book, even though I have no idea what will happen next. I recommend Broken Prince to fans of the first book, Broken Aro and people who like good YA fantasy.
