Four years y’all….I waited four years for Broken Kei by Jen Wylie and it was SO worth it. This book was everything I’ve been waiting for in The Broken Ones. I love Aro and Kei, and the rest of her boys. I love the world-building. I even love the sketchy dragon. Y’all I loved it all!!!
Please note that if you have NOT read the previous books in this series that there may be spoilers to those books in this review. Though I will do my best to limit them.
In Broken Kei, we have a very broken Fey boy and it broke my heart. Aro is at a loss without her Kei, but she is determined to save him, and save him she will. I love Aro. Everytime I think I think her character has matured and can’t possibly grow more, I’m proved wrong. This girl is always adapting and changing to her environment and what is expected of her. I loved seeing her expand and play with her new Fey abilities with Kei’s help of course 😉 It’s inspiring to say the least.
Aro is a force to be reckoned with. However she’s mourning and grieving in this book. With everything that happened in Broken Promise, she really didn’t have time to reconcile how much she missed Prince, and now how much she misses a pirate. And don’t get me started on the elf that is pledged to protect her life. He’s more than a little cray-cray.
As Aro and Kei move into the forest, it becomes clear that they must deal with the were who do not understand Aro’s use of their magic. While they pledge themselves to Aro and accept her as a pack alpha, I’m not sure how much I trust them. In fact, if I were her, I’d stay clear.
Y’all this book is packed full of action and twists and turns. I didn’t want it to end. And YALL!!!!! There is one plot point that nearly destroyed me. I cried and grieved with Aro and then I was angry. All I can say is I hope that this particular plot point takes another turn in the next book because I just can’t handle it….
Overall, if you haven’t already guessed, I loved Broken Kei. It was well worth the long wait to see more of Aro and her boys. I missed them!!! And if I’m not mistaken the next book will be the final in the series and I’m not ready to tell them bye. I’d be happy to read ten more books featuring Aro and her boys and this fantastic world Jen Wylie has created. If you enjoy epic fantasy, I highly recommend it!
