#BookReview of Empire of Shadows by @miriamforster


Empire of Shadows (Bhinian Empire, #2)


About the Book: 

Cast out of her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her—a school where students train to protect others.

 But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire’s capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could’ve imagined. 

More shocking still, she finds the boy she thought she had lost forever outside the gates of her new home.

Mara knew her life in the dizzying Imperial city would hold dangers. 

How could she have known that her heart, as well as her life, would be at stake?

Empire of Shadows will take readers on a spellbinding journey into the world Miriam Forster first introduced in City of a Thousand Dolls—a world with a divided society, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and deeply laid conspiracies.

About the Author: Miriam Forster learned to read at the age of five, wrote her first story at the age of seven and has been playing with words ever since. Her debut novel, CITY OF A THOUSAND DOLLS is being published by HarperCollins.

In her daily life, Miriam is a wife, a terrible housekeeper and a dealer of words at the local bookshop. In her internal life, she imagines fight scenes, obsesses about anthropology, nature shows and British television, and reads far too many books. 

Miriam is represented by Jennifer Laughran of the Andrea Brown Agency


My Review: First off, can I just say how gorgeous that cover is? It is just beautiful. This book just blew my mind. Mara was a great heroine. She was very determined and definitely a force to be reckoned. Emil was the love interest and so very sweet. The romance was light but so sweet. There are unexpected twists at every turns and traitors in highly unlikely places. The epilogue blew me away. It broke my heart but only because I realized how it connected to City of a Thousand Dolls. I highly recommend picking up "City of a Thousand Dolls", it's a wonderful series!!

Do I Recommend this book? YES!!!
