Preview — Uncaged by Celia McMahon
Not every queen needs a crown.
After escaping Stormwall, Izzy and Fray have finally crossed through the Archway and into The Old Kingdom in search of allies. But finding a place within Fray’s former pack is harder than they imagined. When Izzy’s father warred with the Gwylis, it made a lifelong enemy of the Rowan name. Fray’s betrayal of siding with Aquarius in the war make
Oh. My. Heart. I think it is breaking. Why? I can’t even begin to answer that without leading to spoilers. But there is death, which is to be expected because we are at war, but I am not okay.
Celia Mcmahon does and amazing job at world building and storytelling. We have love and loss, traitors and heroes, more Gwylis and FIRE MAGIC! I d ...more
In the sequel to Unspoken, we finally get to see more of the world outside of the New Kingdom. We get to see the other side of the ravaged land and those affected by the centuries-long war. We watch as Izzy and Fray struggle to find themselves and hold onto each other as they try to build a new life beyond the Archway.
I love this world that Celia has created and was thrilled to be diving deep ...more
*Aesthetics ~ the covers for the whole series are so good! I love the color scheme and the cover art is just so beautiful.
*World Building ~ Izzy and Fray have left Stormwall and now they are in The Old Kingdom which is very detailed. I enjoyed learning about this land of Gwylis who aren’t voiceless, the Gwylis history and their way of life. We get a lot more wolves in this book as Izzy meets Fray’s old pack.
*Characters ~ I like meeting the new characters like Olio (he’s my fave). Sonia i ...more
If you haven't read "Unspoken," stop here. Do not pass "Go," do not collect $200 (I saw it first, and finders keepers). Uncaged is not for the faint of heart, and this review is going to contain spoilers. To really appreciate them, you're going to want to start at the beginning.
Now, on to the juicy stuff. We've got allian ...more
If you haven’t read Unspoken, you need to go do that now. If you have, then you need to immediately pick up Uncaged, because it is SO. DAMN. GOOD. This isn’t a “happily ever after” story, the prince does not get the princess, and ...more
I will be honest and say that the second book wasn't my favourite. I found that it got slow in some places and I wasn't sure where it was going. It took me a little longer to get through for this reason. There was a lot of what I wi ...more
Adult content, reader discretion advised. Please find more Beta reader or an assistant to grammar check and proofread. I am terrible at grammar so if I am distracted its noticeable. Izzy and Fray are meant to be. She needs to accept herself and accept the help of her loved ones. She is so hell bent on protecting everyone that Izzy is taking their choices away and pushing everyone behind stone walls.
A beautiful twist on wolves, princess and adventure. This is not your typical fantasy happily ever after. This is heart wrenching, breath taking and can’t eat shower or function without completion type of story. My love and heart goes out to Izzy... True Love and Adventure aren’t always happy..

Thank you to Celia McMahon and The Parliament House Press for an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not sure what to say about this book. I did like it better than Unspoken. However, some of the same issues I had with the first book carried over to this one. Two books in, I am still unsure if Izzy's kingdom is called the New Kingdom, Mirosa, or Stormwall. I felt no attachment to any of the characters (except Ghetee) (view spoiler)[welp. okay none of the ...more
Celia Mcmahon is a devourer of books and coffee. If she’s not busy buying more books than she can read or discovering new ways of being tired, you can find her scouring the world army-wife style for book ideas.
What I read: I read fantasy and contemporary with your occasional biography and horror thrown in.
Unapologetically addicted to jalapeno Cheetos.
What I write: I write ...more
