One thought on “The Shattered City

  1. Leonie

    I enjoyed this second book in the series just as much as I enjoyed the first one.The character development was particularly strong, and the story became complex satisfyingly so I became extremely attached to several characters, and enjoyed following their journeys as the stakes rose higher and higher.The Creature Court itself is a fascinating concept, and makes for a story full of surprises and twists In this book, The Shattered City, there were a lot of almosts where the character looked as if [...]

  2. Celia

    This was a fantastic follow up to Power and Majesty as per the blurb, Velody is the Power and Majesty of the Creature Court the fantastical band of shape shifters who protect the city of Aufleur each night from the terrible threat in the sky She s trying to be a better leader to the Creature Court than they have had before, and to inspire their loyalty and trust, but the threats they are facing seem ever increasing Velody feels the incredible pressure of her position, her friends are also drawn [...]

    Not as many surprises as in volume 1, but still rather enjoyable As much as I love the beautiful cover, really, after reading the book I wanted to see the flame dress than I wanted to see the museum dress But I guess you have to have your actual protagonist on the cover at some point Greatly entertaining juxtaposition between serious dramatic plot points and such one liners as The kitchen table required to be stared at a great deal and Licking blood from your fingers is hardly an accident My fa [...]

  4. Estara

    There was just too much of an emotional mess and teenager like behaviour by the main characters to make me enjoy the second book as much as the first one and I just decided to spend my money elsewhere I especially got annoyed at Ashiol s ennui and angst I could understand it in the first part because of the horrific happenings, but here he became like a spoiled pouting boy who ran from girl to girl because the first girl was unhappy with him.I do have to admit that I think the worldbuilding top [...]

    Tansy makes me so cross I got this book at Easter and, as I m in the final throes of reading for the WA Premier s Book Awards, dutifully put it neatly on the shelf as a reward for later Then I was sitting at the table and had no book in front of me so I picked it up and thought, I ll just read the first chapter And then I read another chapter And another And I couldn t put the darn thing down Most CROSS Tansy I wasn t supposed to be READING it then Don t read this book without reading Power and [...]

  6. Liza

    I liked it, but not as much as the first one, for some reason It felt ponderous Maybe it s a Middle Book Syndrome thing It just felt like a whole lot of camping in tents.

    This review forms part of my contribution to the Australian Women Writers 2012 Reading Challenge All my AWWC reviews can be found here.The Shattered City by Tansy Rayner Roberts is book two of the Creature Court trilogy I reviewed book one Power and Majesty a few months ago.The Shattered City picks up where Power and Majesty leaves off I m finding that it is a bit hard to give any kind of plot synopsis of book two of a trilogy without giving away information about book one Suffice to say that th [...]

  8. S.B. Wright

    The Shattered City is book 2 of Tansy Rayner Roberts Creature Court Trilogy following on from Power and Majesty The third and final book Reign of Beasts is to be released February 2nd1.Don t let the cover fool you the Red Hot Chilli Peppers fifth album, Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic could have been an alternative title for this book Bloody action, liberal use of Animor magic and some very saucy sex scenes and the sugar well there s honey cakes.In my review of Power and Majesty I stated that I felt th [...]

    Velody, dressmaker and Power and Majesty of the Creature Court Fae , creates a beautiful dress for Isangell, Ducomtessa of Aufleur ruler of the city state in which the story is set In Power and Majesty book one Velody began having problems with shadows on her skin and in her vision these problems have continued Ashiol, the other King of the Creature Court and Isangell s cousin, struggles to retain a shred of his sanity Rhian, Velody s friend, hides a secret for which she believes she cannot be f [...]

    This book gave me all the feels.Seriously, what an amazing ride from start to finish Not only does Roberts have amazing and beautifully fleshed out characters, but she really knows how to take shit hitting the fan to a whole new level The level of chaos and destruction in this novel is staggering, and the world in which Velody wishes to protect is shattering with no hope of survival Until she has the best sex ever in an attempt to save it That s right, you heard me, SEX.I m not going to lie, I t [...]

  11. Melina

    The middle book where everything falls to pieces .To be honest, things were dissolving at the end of the first book, but The Shattered City just amped everything right up to a heightened level of oh my goodness, that can t happen Can it We start the book with a lot knowledge about Aufleur and the Creature Court than when we opened the first book We know about the many festivals which keep Velody, Delphine and Rhian in work, we know about the power plays and violence and alliances within the Cre [...]

    I read this about 10 weeks ago, and I m not sure why I ve left it til now to actually review it I think it s because I read it too fast, and was then a bit shell shocked I couldn t face reviewing it immediately, and then I kept putting it off so now the review isn t as good as it might have been, but I can at least tick it off my to do list and move it to the bookshelf, rather than having it staring at me accusingly from the shelf above my computerTansy is very very mean to her characters If you [...]

  13. Maren

    I m even torn on this one than I was on the first book of the series It kind of has the quality of a train wreck rather horrifying, and yet you can t really look away.The good Amazing character development good, bad, twisted, complicated, incredible character development For everyone, not just the main characters you really want to hate some of them, but you just can t It s a bit frustrating, actually.The really not sure The plots and subplots get plottier and subplottier The traditional litera [...]

  14. Kaia Landelius

    Yes, this will be the most substantial and well thought through review you have ever seen It goes like this I ve read this book three or four times now It s so amazing to see it in print, without the MAKE WRITE GOOD notes in the margin So yes, I m slightly biased, but I will still say this Delphine is awesome, Heliora is heartbreaking, Rhian is beautiful, Poet is creepy and I still want to bone Ashiol PS Every single of these three or possibly four times __________ s death has made me cry A lot [...]

  15. Nancy White

    I gave the first book in this series somewhat of a rave review Basically I said that it s not the best writing in the world but it is an awesome story.I feel mostly the same way about the second book in the series The ending was frustrating, I think the first book had a bit of a conclusion than this one did Although I suppose I m getting used to this thing people are doing where they don t end their novelsAnyways, it s good stuff and I really enjoyed reading it I could barely put it down It was [...]

  16. Yvonne Boag

    Velody now leads the Creature Court but knows better then to trust any of them The nox battles have taken a new form, growing harder to deal with and having repercussions that none of them can foresee The Creature Court is fracturing and Velody may have to make a decision that is then she can bare.It starts slowly building towards a sinister air As I read I found myself reading faster and faster to find out what was to come It is a fabulous series that it rather different then anything I have r [...]

  17. Clinton

    I feel like Ive been way too negative in my reviews lately But this book has to have one of the dumbest cast of characters I have ever seen Normally its only maybe one or to characters who ooze stupidity in a book, but The Shattered City signed up all its characters for that role Im not going to spend time going over all the stupid choices each character made, because I honestly don t have that kind of time or motivation The book is interesting, you just look past the obvious flaws if you want t [...]

  20. Marianne

    This was a bit of a slow start as I didn t quite recall all the details from the previous book But, once I got back into the world of Aufleur I sped through There were a lot of interesting character and plot developments I really liked Heliora this time around and her journals diary entries were definitely high points The ending was also rather interesting.

  21. Matt

    Enjoying this fantasy story The huge amount of festivals in Aufleur seems to be an impossible burden for any society to carry However, if one must suspend credibility in one area, Not quite sure why all the sex implied and realised has to be present The story works very well without the tawdriness.

  22. Adrielle

    3.5 starsI found this better than the first in the series In this installment Velody is Power and majesty, she is the head honcho of the creature court However, they are still up to their old tricks, there is division and in fighting but they are slowly learning to work together.

  23. Melanie

    An entertaining follow up book, that had me wondering what could possibly happen next A decadent, dangerous world of which I can t wait to enter again.

  24. Katharine (Ventureadlaxre)

    Oh how utterly amazing.Any country who doesn t publish this series You re utterly crazy.
