Find the heir, win the crown.

The curse is finally broken, but Prince Rhen of Emberfall faces darker troubles still. Rumors circulate that he is not the true heir and that forbidden magic has been unleashed in Emberfall. Although Rhen has Harper by his side, his guardsman Grey is missing, leaving more questions than answers.

Win the crown, save the kingdom.

Rumored to be the heir, Grey has been on the run since he destroyed Lilith. He has no desire to challenge Rhen--until Karis Luran once again threatens to take Emberfall by force. Her own daughter Lia Mara sees the flaws in her mother’s violent plan, but can she convince Grey to stand against Rhen, even for the good of Emberfall?

The heart-pounding, compulsively readable saga continues as loyalties are tested and new love blooms in a kingdom on the brink of war.

In the sequel to New York Times bestselling A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Brigid Kemmerer returns to the world of Emberfall in a lush fantasy where friends become foes and love blooms in the darkest of places. (Add to Goodreads)

I originally read A Heart So Fierce and Broken back when it was first released in 2020, but for some reason never typed out my thoughts on the book. Since I just finished re-reading it to refresh before starting A Vow So Bold and Deadly, I figured I would go ahead and take a moment to share my thoughts on the book while it is, once again, fresh in my mind.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely is a book that I enjoyed so much. Not only because it’s a highly addictive read, but also because it is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. (I seriously can’t get enough of them.) It was definitely one of my favorite series starters, so of course, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on its sequel, A Heart So Fierce and Broken.

While the first book in the series is about Rhen and Harper, the second book is all about Grey, and a newly introduced character, Lia Mara. I loved Scary Grey from the moment I met him in the first book, so I was really, really excited to get his story in the second book. Especially after we discovered his secret! Grey is such a great character, and I really enjoyed following him on his journey in this book. I also really enjoyed watching his relationship with Lia Mara grow throughout the book. I like them both so much, and I’m so curious to see what’s in store for them, (as well as Harper, Rhen, and the rest of the crew), in the third book.

(Also, that ending of A Heart So Fierce and Broken was crazy! Waiting a year for the next book almost killed me!)

Overall; A Heart So Fierce and Broken was a great sequel to A Curse So Dark and Lonely! I am now very excited to get started on A Vow So Bold and Deadly, even though I am SO not ready for the series to end. If you haven’t yet started this series, you definitely need to do so! It’s so good, and I hope you enjoy it if you do decide to read it.
