Throwback Thursday Review: The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott

The Shattered Court (The Four Arts, #1)The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved reading The Shattered Court! This book has been on my to-read list and I finally picked it up during my last trip to the library. For some reason I thought this was a YA novel, so at first the description didn’t have me as excited as if it wasn’t a YA novel. I’m just glad I picked this book up!

I have to say I loved the characters and the dynamic between Sophia and Cameron. The only thing I wish this book had is a map! Seriously, a map would have helped when reading about Anglion, the traveling that takes place and Illvya. Keeping a mental map while reading about these different places, especially with the type of travel done, is not the best. I think a map would have also helped with the world building in this novel. We don’t get to see much of this world that M.J. Scott has created and that sucks. Whether the world building just wasn’t the greatest or Scott did this intentionally to make the reader just as ignorant of the world outside Anglion as the characters, I don’t know. In my opinion, I hope it’s the latter. I will be following this series and can’t wait for book 2!
