Review of The Broken Crown by Amryn Cross


Title: The Broken Crown 

Author: Amryn Cross
Series: Narrow Gate Book 1 
Publisher: Trouvaille Books


Princess Emilia Aurelius was only seven when she watched her mother die at the hands of her father—martyred for believing in the God of the Atlas Empire’s Insurgo rebels. At seventeen, exiled to a military out post where no one knows her true identity, she’s vowed to leave her royalty behind and explore the truth of the Insurgo rebels her mother loved.
When the Emperor of Atlas summons the princesses from each of the provinces to the imperial city to choose a wife for the crown prince, Emilia must leave her military life behind to join a royal court rife with cunning and intrigue. Navigating the waters of court politics and budding love are treacherous on their own, but Emilia fears for her life should anyone learn of her Insurgo sympathies. With an unlikely ally in the captain of the emperor’s guard, Emilia must uncover the truth of the Insurgos, start a revolution, and learn to become the princess she’s vowed never to be, all while protecting her heart from a prince who could sign her death warrant.  
Rating: I just wanted to take a moment to thank Sara from YA Bound Book Tours for sending me a copy of this book for my honest review. I will be giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars. This book was very interesting between the politics that were involved and the roamces that was presented. The poltical structure was one of my favorite parts within this book due to the different kingdomes and their dynamics for the overall empire. The compotition for the Prince was not always at the forefront of this book and I was ok with that, it was more so the struggles of Emila for not only her people but her religion. This book reminded me of the Selection meets the book of Esther. This book is like the Selection due to the compotition for the Prince, however,  it is like the book of Esther because Emilia is sent to deliver her people.
