Torn (The Unraveled Kingdom #1)

TORN is the first book in an enchanting debut fantasy series featuring a seamstress who stitches magic into clothing, and the mounting political uprising that forces her to choose between her family and her ambitions, for fans of The Queen of the Tearling.Sophie is a dressmaker who has managed to open her own shop and lift herself and her brother, Kristos, out of poverty. Her reputation for beautiful ball gowns and discreetly-embroidered charms for luck, love, and protection secures her a commission from the royal family itself -- and the commission earns her the attentions of a dashing but entirely unattainable duke.Meanwhile, Kristos rises to prominence in the growing anti-monarchist movement. Their worlds collide when the revolution's shadow leader takes him hostage and demands that Sophie place a curse on the queen's Midwinter costume -- or Kristos will die at their hand.As the proletariat uprising comes to a violent climax, Sophie is torn: between her brother and the community of her birth, and her lover and the life she's striven to build....

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this fantasy eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .

    Upon reading the synopsis, I thought this novel would float me boat. But I just could not finish it and had to abandon ship at 80%. Why ye ask? Well for a myriad of reasons:

    - Sophie – She is the main character and at first I really liked her. She was hard-working, dedicated, driven, intelligent, and fun. But basically she is a character who waffles forever, makes

    If fantasy literature often suffers from an over-fixation with Western European-inspired settings, a particular fixation with quasi-medieval settings is at least as prominent (even in stories that stray outside of the aforesaid geographic confines). Rowenna Miller's Torn (the beginning of a series, we're informed), while recognizably European, invites us into a world that is chronologically more akin to the Regency period, which is a change as well.

    Our protagonist, Sophie Balstrade, is a seamstr

    Original review posted on my blog From Ink to Paper

    I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I thought Torn was a fun book to read and felt that the story although not completely unique (there have been quite a few of the poor oppressed people trying to take over the wealthy out lately, however I still love to read them) it had unique parts to it. Never have I read a book where the power that someone has is that they can stitch charms into clothing! I mean

    Sophie Balstrade has used her talent as a seamstress to support herself and her brother, Kristos, and she’s managed to open her own shop even as others around her struggle to find work. Sophie’s designs have gained much attention, but it’s her talent for sewing charms into her garments that has really set her apart from other seamstresses. Sophie is proud of what she’s accomplished, but her brother Kristos, only able to find work as an underpaid laborer, see

  • Dee/ bookworm

    This book was heavily weighed down by politics. It was hard to keep everyone separate because essentially there were more than 5 groups of people, and there was tiers of importance, 2 being most important and then diminishing as the threat or importance diminished, but still a lot to keep straight. Also, I didn't really connect with the main character at all. She seemed secluded, almost snobby and self righteous.

    The story itself, if not weighed down, was interesting, but it was hard to get thro

    Torn is the first story in The Unraveled Kingdom young adult, fantasy series which features a unique take on magic. Readers are introduced to Sophie, a young dressmaker who has a special gift for casting charms through her delicate needlework. I was drawn to this book because cross stitching is one of my hobbies. The book is aptly named as Sophie finds herself torn in so many ways. Her brother, K
