Book Review: Broken Aro (+Giveaway)

Open your eyes to darkness. What do you see? Does the darkness frighten you? Now imagine the darkness being the cargo hold of a slave ship. Your city has fallen. Your family is most likely dead. You don't know anyone around you, and some of them aren't even human. Giving up would be so easy to do, but not for Arowyn Mason. Not after being raised in a military family with seven brothers. Every great story should begin with a plan. Aro’s was to escape and to survive.

Escape comes, but at a price. As they reach the shore, Aro and the other survivors learn that freedom doesn’t mean safety. The slavers want their property back and will do anything to get it. The party uses every ounce of their brute strength, a hearty helping of cunning, and even ancient magics to keep themselves alive. Sickness, danger, and even love surprise them at every turn. Dealing with danger becomes their way of life, but none of them ever considered that nothing can be quite as dangerous as a prophecy. Running turns into another race altogether as her world falls to pieces again and again.

WOW..Just wow. It's been so long since i loved a book that much! I have actually already ordered it printed, because i really want to re-read it and have it in my small library.Come to me book! COME!

The book is exactly what i like. Fantasy in another world, with all those amazing races (elves,dragons,etc). Mystery and adventure surrounds the world and it's concentrated on the relationships between the characters (family and friends) and the story itself. Jen Wylie is an author who doesn't hide the truth about the world (there is violence,deaths etc) without being too graphic. When something is to happen, it will happen no matter if it would make it better to have a happy ending.

A book that makes you not only love all the characters, but get to know them so well. Even though you follow only Aro's POV, you get to chance through scenes to understand and meet all the characters and feel for them. And of course our main characters are all so well structured and in depth. I thought i was there with them through the whole story.

And there are dragons too :p

One of the easiest 5 stars i've given this year.
