My body is made of scars,
some were done to me,
but most I did to myself.

Keera is a killer. As the King’s Blade, she is the most talented spy in the kingdom. And the king’s favored assassin. When a mysterious figure moves against the Crown, Keera is called upon to hunt down the so-called Shadow.

She tracks her target into the magical lands of the Fae, but Faeland is not what it seems…and neither is the Shadow. Keera is shocked by what she learns, and can’t help but wonder who her enemy truly is: the King that destroyed her people or the Shadow that threatens the peace?

As she searches for answers, Keera is haunted by a promise she made long ago, one that will test her in every way. To keep her word, Keera must not only save herself, but an entire kingdom.

Review of A Broken Blade

Review (4.5 Stars): I first heard about A Broken Blade last year and I was so excited to get the opportunity to read this book for myself. I adored this exiting tale and I couldn’t get enough of the magical world that Ms. Blair created.  Keera was a great character that I instantly connected with and wanted to know more about.  A Broken Blade was a magical thrill-ride and I’m excited to see what happens next.
