Shattered by Via Mari is the first book in the Torial Affair series which also a spin off of the Prestian Series. I highly recommend you read that series first though this can be read as a stand alone.
There is some overlap from the end of the first series time wise but it’s a very different story since we are following Jenny and Brian which I really enjoyed. I liked the different prospective and finding out more details on the trauma Jenny endured and how Brian was involved with protecting her and more.
Jenny moved up my list of amazingly strong female characters quite a bit as I was reading all she has done and experienced at a very young age. After feeling like I knew her as Katerina’s best friend I got to know her as an individual and I’m so glad I did.
We start to see Brian’s carefully placed walls start to crumble the more he learns about Jenny. We also find out what makes him tick, his pain and happiness from childhood and how dominant he really is.
I throughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait to get to the next one and see what happens.
