A Broken Blade by Melissa Blair digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

The BookTok sensation from debut author Melissa Blair—now with exclusive bonus content!
 
"Gripping and fierce. This is much-needed fantasy with its fangs honed sharp by the power of resistance. Melissa Blair has built a tremendous world."—Chloe Gong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights
 
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.
 
Fans of fast-paced high fantasy such as A Court of Thorns and Roses series, The Inadequate Heir, and From Blood and Ash author Jennifer L. Armentrout, will enjoy the fierce female characters, sapphic representation, and fantasy romance of A Broken Blade.

Slightly Smiling Face“I enjoyed this story, like most fantasy series, half of this book was world building and getting to know and understand the characters so it did drag a bit because of that but the other half picked up with more action and the plot twist cliffhanger it ended with has me ready to read the next one! There’s a slow burn in this but it’s SLOW lol”
