An Empire Asunder by Evan Currie is the second book in the Scourwind Legacy series and a fantastic follow up to Heirs of Empire. The traitorous General Corian is back once again, as are fledgling Empress Lydia and Brennan, now a cadreman-in-training. The Empire is in more perilous straits than ever before. With Mira Desol and the prototype Barr class ship missing in action, both the Empire and the Alliance are in an all out race to build similar ships to bring against one another. Though there seems to be an uneasy truce, all of that is shattered and the upcoming storm may be too much for the Empire to bear.
Will the Empire survive? Will Desol, Brennan, and Lydia be able to save the Empire before it is too late? If you enjoyed Heirs of Empire, you will adore An Empire Asunder. I had a hard time placing the book down and am already waiting impatiently for the next book in the series. What Currie does so well in this book is crafting amazing characters and immersive plot lines. I recommend this book highly with five stars and hope the next book comes out soon!
I received this book for free from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
