I was sobbing while at work reading this, I was not expecting what I was reading at the time. It was a million love stories rolled into one. Knight and Luna have a fairy-tale romance that breaks your heart into a million pieces and puts it back together again. Broken Knight is everything you want to read. There is heartbreak, love, angst, fear, joy, anguish and love. LJ Shen has taken this up to a new level. A must-read.
You mustread this book, I started reading in the evening and kept going until 4am - I just could not stop. It helps if you have read the earlier books in the series as it deals with past characters. L J Shen is amazing, the depth to her characters and I was in tears near the end with what happened to one. I don't like giving spoilers so will just say this is a mustread, we got to really understand Luna and Knight, their fears and hopes. I loved seeing how the kids have all grown and also what the original 4 are now doing. I can't wait for Vaughan's story. I will be reading this again and again.
This book is outstanding, it's hard to think of the right words to express how good I think this book is. If you are a newbie to L.J.Shen you NEED to read her books and I won't apologise for your new author addiction. If you are familiar with her than you know that this book will be nothing but outstanding and don't need to read their this review to convince you to read this book. Yes it is a standalone and can definitely work as one, however it is part of a collection of books where you learn more about the other characters in this book, most specifically Knight and Lunas parents. Knight was an amazing character for me, I really thought he would screw up royally throughout the book but I just fell more and more in love with his heart and brokenness. Luna was perfectly imperfect and I think this story of their journey was beautiful and heart wrenching. L.J.Shen is a master of words and I cannot wait to read more from her.
OMG if ever I could rate a book 10 stars this would be one of them. I am a huge fan of LJ Shen and anything she writes ill read, so when she announced this book and the date it was due out the countdown began but the wait seemed forever but it was oh so so worth every second of the wait. This book is by far my favourite of hers so far and thats saying alot as I adore all her books and have read them all multiple times but this one. This one brought all my emotions out it left a huge lump in my throat as i seriously didnt want it to end. I loved Luna and Knights story it was a tale of childhood friendship that nothing or no one can break a tale of heartbreak a tale of growing up and finally seeing what has been right in front of you the whole time a tale of two tortured souls trying to find their place in this world, its a tale of losing loved ones and finding yourself in the things that person taught you. This story had me in tears, which i seriously did not expect. We got to see that Dean and Rosie were still as strong as ever but then the unexpected happened and it killed me . I felt like a era had ended that one HotHoles will never be the same again, but then at the end you see a glimmer of hope even amongst the tragedy. This book took so many unexpected turns but i loved every second of it. It was one hell of a beautifully heartbreaking journey. If you havent read any of LJ shens books start with Vicious and work your way through them that way you know each and every character , you will not regret it cannot wait for the next one . Im also hoping Dean gets another book but that might be asking too much lol A+++ Lj Shen pulls you in until your at the edge of your seat turning the page wanting to know what happens next, with each page as tense and raw as the one before it . Masterpiece in my eyes. She has outdone herself with this one but im sure ill be saying the same in the next one. A MUSTREAD FOR ALL!!!!
I went in blind with this book and I know everyone loves it but I wasn’t prepared for the shock of my life, and I’ll be honest I know when something I like doesn’t turn out as I expected, but I won’t lie, it takes the sparkle away from what I love most about this series and the series before them, so with that I nearly DNF but I needed to know what happened in the end, yes I am gutted but there’s no changing how everything has changed.
ahhh. My heart has never been shattered so brutally yet put back together so delicately. I feel as though I watched Luna and Knight grow up to be the adults they are through the rest of LJ Shen’s books, and nothing could prepare me for the love, heartbreak and overall growth of the characters and life that is Broken Knight. I stayed up almost all night to read this book in one sitting and days later, I still have not stopped thinking about it. It is a Must-Read!!!!
