    I was pretty excited about Grey getting a POV in this because he was my favorite in the last book! Now, I was sad at first that we wouldn't be getting much from Rhen or Harper, but I will say, I really liked the new addition of Lia Mara! She was strong in so many ways!

    Oh man, so some crap goes down in this book that I wasn't too pleased about concerning Rhen. Some of his actions were, WOW! But I won't give any spoilers. Also, Harper made me irritated as well. I still don't understand why Jake wa

    Did I join Edelweiss just to hopefully get my hands on this before the release date?? Yes. Did I get a copy of it despite my expectations for the opposite?? YES I DID!!!


    P R E O R D E R E D and now the true wait begins . . .

    yknow even though the author has promised no love triangle I still feel like things are, ahaha, grey enough that I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD BE COMFORTED BY THAT STATEMENT OR NOT

    First and foremost I’d like to say, if you haven’t read A Curse so Dark and Lonely, please go read that before reading this. Or click !!HERE!! if you’re interested in watching my review on that!

    “There is no path here. I feel as though the curse never ended. The players simply changed.”

    I received an ARC of A Heart so Fierce and Broken at BookExpo, this in no way impacts my review. However, my review is based on an unfinished and uncorrected copy, please note that the story and quotes may differ from the final book. I’ll keep this review as spoiler-free as possible, but there will still be spoilers for A Curse so Dark and Lonely.

    I cannot start this review without saying how happy I am

    This was brilliant and cruel and perfect. I never saw the plot twist coming at the end, and it both made me feel better and broke my heart. I adore this series.

    It’s all about Grey... or at least that’s what I’m hoping for. I am pleased the released date is Jan 2020 and not three million years from now!

    CAN NOT WAIT!!!!! My health is super crappy I really hope I make it to 2020 so I can read this book.
    The previous book destroyed me ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY COMPLETELY.

    Edit: DAMN!!! This cover is EVERYTHING 💚😍 This is now Officially my MOST anticipated book of 2020.

    Someone pls pinch me because I got an e-ARC of this and suddenly I don't know how to function.

    Thank you Bloomsbury for sending me an e-ARC of this in exchange for an honest review.


    Wake me up in 2020 so I don't have to be in misery every day of my life that this book isn't out yet.

    Pls & thanks.

    I can't wait for Grey POV chapters (I'm not even sure they're happening, but I can't wait for them). I'm a TRUE hoe for broody captains of the guard.

    To be honest I only got to 70 pages in the first book before I put it down for no good reason but does that stop me from being excited. No it doesn’t.

    No love triangle??? That better not mean Rhen is thrown at us... you can’t just give Harper and Grey that intense chemistry and REFUSE to acknowledge it smh

    Filled with politics, alliances and new characters! AHSFAB was surprising as we’re introduced to new POVs which was more exciting in my opinion! Despite it having a pretty slow start, the book picked up almost halfway through!

    The storyline was intriguing and so different from Book 1! I quite liked how we got to see other kingdoms and how they worked. Strong female characters and a plot that will
