Centuries ago, a group of Aranken mages left their homeland and became the ancestors of the Nikari. Now a Nikari prince will return, seeking truth and finding far more than he expected.
Shuri Fezenda has one goal in mind when he departs for A’rankin—to identify the culprit behind the conspiracy targeting Ivy, his brother’s consort and a man Shuri cares for deeply. But when he meets Prince Tynare’Or’Therar, Shuri’s world is turned upside down.
Beautiful and mysterious, Tynare draws Shuri like no other. The secrets he whispers taunt and tease, but Shuri’s treacherous heart races and his body responds when Tynare shoots him a knowing smile. And then Shuri meets Tynare’s twin brother, Nari, and in Nari’s kindness and blind eyes, he finds refuge and a love beyond anything he thought he could feel.
Torn between duty and confused emotions, Shuri faces an A’rankin on the brink of civil war and a foe he didn’t count on—the neighboring land of Shyrn. At the heart of the conflict, one question remains. Who is Tynare really, and who is Nari? Shuri is almost afraid to learn the answer.
Fractured Souls is book two in the Elemental Lovers series and picks up where Beyond the Rift ends, with Shuri heading off to the Eastern Realm in search of answers. What he finds is mysteries and intrigue wrapped around the fetching man that is Prince Tynare.
The world was just as vibrant as the first book, and although some things were confusing at first, everything is explained in the end. I didn’t like Shuri in the last book, and didn’t care for him much at the beginning of this, but he was redeemed in my eyes and I loved the relationship that built between him and Tynare. There is a lot of action and magic, though the A’rankins use the elements differently than the Nikari do. This gave even more interest to the story. We learn more about the nightwolves and encounter dangerous creatures trying to destroy the Empire.
Though this tale in the series is wrapped up, the epilogue leaves it open for a third book in the series. Though we don’t know whether the book would focus on the existing couples or a new pair, I am looking forward to it.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
