I'm not sure how I felt about Broken. I liked the story line. The characters were likeable and the mythology behind Ascentii Phoenix's shifting world was unique enough. So what kept me from enjoying it more? There were just times that the language slowed me down.I'm not sure I can explain exactly what I mean, but I'll try. I think what threw me the most was the terminology that was used to explain the aspects of The Carnelyan Pack world. The terms were kind of technical and formal, which made it awkward to follow. Of course, that could have been just me. The romance, action, mystery and story premise were more than interesting and kept me from turning this into a DNF experience. It also ended in enough of a cliff hanger that I'm willing to give the next book a chance when it's released.
