First in a new fantasy series from the author of the Novels of the Half-Light City.

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.

I am going to make this review short and simple!

This book was everything I wanted, and more!

M.J. Scott created a world where Females pretty much rule everything. And the best part? There is MAGIC!!! I love all things Witches. Throw in the whole King, Queen, soliders, etc. I am even more in love! This is the first adult fantasy novel I’ve read in a very, very long time! I miss my adult romance! In my opinion, THE SHATTERED COURT can also fall under the New Adult category.

Anyway, I loved this story! I cannot wait for the sequel! There better be a sequel! I am officially a fan of M.J. Scott and plan on buying her other books and devouring those!

Here is a little check list I created. The Shattered court has it all! READ IT!

Romance √ 
Action √
Magic √
Betrayal √
Kick-ass Females √
Swoon Worthy Male √
Sexy-time √
Suspense √

I say it again… READ IT!!!!! I HIGHLY recommend it!

5 Stars!
