The Broken Lands (YA)

The Broken Lands. Kate Milford. 2012. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 455 pages.

I just loved, loved, loved Kate Milford's The Boneshaker. I can't say I loved The Broken Lands as much, but, I still really liked it. I think I loved the narration more in Boneshaker. With The Boneshaker, it was love almost from the first page, it definitely took me longer to connect with the characters and the story from this newest book. But. Once I started caring about Sam and Jin, I did care. Both books, of course, are about good versus evil, and being brave enough to make the right choices and stand up for good. And there were great scenes in both books. I continued to love the author's description and storytelling. I would recommend both books.

The Broken Lands is historical fantasy set in New York City in 1877.

Read The Broken Lands
  • If you love great storytelling and unique characters
  • If you love historical fantasy young adult fiction
  • If you're looking for a 'magical' or 'supernatural' book set in New York City
  • If you are looking for a little supernatural in your fantasy BUT you don't necessarily want werewolves or vampires or zombies
