"I closed my eyes. Magic. For so many years I had dreamed about it, imagining it was something as beautiful as what I'd read about in old stories instead of the abomination my people told me it was."
I absolutely loved Bound, so I was extremely excited to start reading Torn. Kate Sparkes has such a creative mind. Her magical world is so detailed and her characters are amazing. We learn more and more about the characters as the book goes on. We are even introduced to a few new characters! Torn definitely does not disappoint!
Torn starts exactly where Bound left off. Rowan is safe in Belleisle, trying to learn how to control her magic. Aren leaves her there, in order to embark on his own journey. Aren needs to find his father in order to bring Severn's reign to an end. Rowan gets news of her family and allows herself to be led into a trap and captured by hunters. Aren, of course, changes his plans to go find Rowan. Let the adventure begin!
"I loved you before you had control of your magic. But there's something incredibly attractive about you as a true Sorceress."
I love Aren! He is changing for Rowan and you can really see it, in this book. This book is full of adventure, secrets, betrayal, love, friendship, and new bonds. Rowan and Aren can't trust anyone, not even family. There are a few surprises throughout this book as well! I can't believe how complex the story has become and how perfect it is tying together!
"Blood doesn't mean much. Most of my worst enemies are family members."
Many people find big thick books intimidating, but I love them! These books are huge and full of excitement. There is not one boring part! I was always on the edge of my seat, reading like it was the last book I'll ever read. Kate Sparkes had me so deeply involved with the story and the characters. It is going to be very hard for me to wait to see what happens. I need to get my hands on the third book. If you haven't read this series, you are definitely missing out on something really great.
