Review- Broken Prince (the broken ones 2)

Title: Broken Prince (The Brokrn Ones 2)
Author: Jen Wylie
Rating: 5/5
Summary
Sometimes, when you're broken, you can heal on your own. Sometimes, you need the help of your friends, your family, and the people you love. Keeping those pieces together when the world seems intent on ripping you apart is the greatest challenge of all. Especially when the ones you love, the ones who hold you together, start falling apart themselves. Arowyn and her family continue on their journey to return the Elven Prince, Shael, to his homeland before he fades and dies. A journey full of triumph and horror, love and sorrow, rips them apart with every fighting moment, and yet brings them together as a family. They don't allow the prophecy to rule their lives. Some don't believe, some don't care. Prophecies aren't written in stone. Events can change. People can change. They are only words. From besieged cites, to the elusive Were and wild Fey, nothing quite prepares them to face their deadliest of enemies, one they didn't know existed.

My Review
* I received this book form the author in exchange for an honest review*
I read book one for a read to review and the amazing Jen Wylie was kind enough to send me book two. Since I was so in love with book one I was very very excited to read this one, and I am now even more in love with this series! A truly epic fantasy filled with adventure prophecy and most of all the lengths people will go for the ones they love....our family.
On the surface this may seem like just a story of a strange group of people who have some how become a family, on a long journey to return one of their own home before the unthinkable happens, but it is so much more than that. The prophecy adds a back round and a mystery that is beautifully woven in with my most favorite part of this book, and that's the deep love, understanding, and loyalty these characters have built with each other. I absolutely love all of these characters and I am constantly in awe of how such a diverse group of people can come together and show such strength and support in times of need. The layers that constantly form make this story more and more fantastic and epic with every page, and I want everyone to know Jen Wylie's writing is beautiful and captivating.
It fascinates me how beautifully tragic this story is, I felt so many things I was whipped from heartbreak and loss to love and joy. I found the core of this story to be very relate able and it may seem odd since it is a fantasy land filled with Elves, Fey, Were, human and more but at the center our feelings and ability to know right from wrong is the same.
"Rot it all" why does this book have to be so awesome, I was so upset when it ended, I can't wait for the next because I want to return to this beautiful place and I want to know when they will be together again and if they will find the answers they need and deserve. Again I will say I CAN NOT wait for the next book and I really really hope I do not have to wait long!!!!!
Oh and also I must say this cover is beautiful I also loved book ones cover they are as hauntingly beautiful as the books.
