Broken Banners is a thrilling, fast-paced fantasy tale. It is the second novella of the series A Reaper of Stone. Reviewers compare it to the works of Brandon Sanderson, Sarah J Maas, and Joe Abercrombie. It is recommended for readers who enjoy epic fantasy, myth and legend, action, and/or stories with a strong female protagonist.
Slaughtered and left for crows, soldiers of the King’s Army lay dead in a field. A grim reminder: the king’s law ends at the gates of the capital.
Elinor fought for what she believed and now she is an outcast. No soldier will follow her. No officer will stand with her. Yet when she finds her brothers and sisters slaughtered, she cannot turn her back on them.
Long ago, they swore an oath. Not to the king, but to each other.
And woe to those who break that bond.
An unfortunate decision. A life altering consequence. In this story you follow Aldis and Elinor, two leaders of the kings regiment’s in their struggle to lead and maintain honor (or in some cases what’s left of it). The cover is eye catching, and I really enjoyed con’s character. The main drawback being that as soon as I really got into the story it was over and I have to wait for the next one. I would post a longer review, but as this is a novella any more and it would give away the entire story.
