Cait’s Review of “The Fractured Empire” by Robin D. Mahle

By: Cait Marie

Clark and Adelaide think their lives can’t get any worse. Until they meet each other. 

Adelaide — heiress to the wealthiest man in the Ceithren Empire — has felt a void since her sister’s death. Just as she’s resigned herself to the empty life her father chose for her, a relic from a world that shouldn’t exist plunges her into chaos. 

Clark — son of the greatest terrorist the empire has ever known — is still reeling from his father’s death. Since then, his life has boiled down to two things: his brothers and his next mission. When his mission to bring back a mystical artifact goes awry, he’s forced to choose between getting the job done and saving the life of a spoiled socialite. 

But Clark isn’t the only one after the artifact. 

He and Adelaide must work together to survive… if only they can manage to avoid killing each other before their enemies have the chance.


This book grabbed me from the very beginning, throwing me into this beautifully-crafted, intriguing new world. The plot is fast-paced and intense, making it hard to stop reading. And the characters… they’re all so unique and well written. I instantly connected to them and needed more.

Addie and Clark are thrown together on this impossible mission. It’s such an intense, fun adventure. And the snark between them is absolute gold.

This world Mahle has created is just incredible. It’s such a cool concept with the world split, and the details in the kingdom and the traveling come together so well.

I cannot recommend this book and series enough! I’ve now finished all four books, and am already about to re-read them. The complete boxset releases this Friday, February 12! Check it out here.*
