If you liked the first one, you'll like this one too. It adds more intrigue and more world building, tilts some of the info you got in the last book in an interesting way and was a fun romp. This series is by no means a masterpiece of literary wonder but it's entertaining and a fun blend of fantasy and romance. This one actually begins to build more on the fantasy too since the last one established the romance but the relationship does continue to grow as well This one also ends on a bit of a cliffhanger in that it is clearly setting up a third book that should be just as interesting, but not so much that I felt cheated. Though what's to come does loom enough to make you want to read the next one so long as you have enjoyed the romp thus far.

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** The Forbidden Heir by M.J. Scott Book Two of the Four Arts series Publication Date: November 7, 2017 Rating: 4 stars Source: Review copy provided by the author Summary (from Goodreads): She fled to save her life, but surviving what comes next might destroy everything she believes in… The royal witches of Anglion have always been bound to serve their country. But Lady Sophia Mackenzie, whose unbound magic and near claim to the crown made her a target, was forced to flee Anglion, leaving behind a dead assassin and shattered loyalties. Now she finds herself in Illvya, where the magic is everything she’s been taught to fear and the only person she can trust is her new husband, Cameron. Sophia and Cameron must navigate a strange world of illicit temptations, dangerous threats and political intrigue, where as a royal witch Sophia is both prized and reviled. As she begins to master her powers, the factions seeking to control Sophia close in, and her magical and emotional bonds with Cameron are pushed to the limit. To survive long enough to claim the future she seeks, she may have to choose between love and loyalty, and hope the price of her choice is one she can bear. What I Liked: The Shattered Court was one of my favorite adult books back in Spring 2015. To this day, I've reread it so many times, I could probably quote the book. I'm a huge fan of adult fantasy romance and the book really clicked for me. The Forbidden Heir has been a long time coming and I found that I wasn't disappointed at all. While I loved The Shattered Court more, I was completely hooked on this sequel and I'm dying for more. The Forbidden Heir picks up pretty much exactly where The Shattered Court left off, with Cameron and Sophie fleeing Anglion and seeking asylum in Illyva. They are granted asylum but they trust no one, especially since the Illyvan customs on magic are strange to them. Cameron and Sophie must be on guard at the Illyvan magic school and at court, where there enemies are both familiar and unfamiliar. To protect themselves, they must make choices that could put everything they worked for at risk. Much of this novel takes place in the Academe, where Cameron and Sophie are granted asylum under strained circumstances. They decide to train at the Academe and take classes to strengthen their skills, while they are lying low. But tensions are very high, especially when an envoy from Anglion arrives, demanding that Cameron and Sophie return. Sophie is a valuable commodity to Anglion, and not just as an heir to the throne. This story was packed with action, political intrigue, scheming, and high stakes. There was a different feel to this book, compared to the first book. In the first book, everything felt confined to Anglion and Cameron/Sophie's bond. But this book takes the story to bigger, broader heights. More important figures come into play, like the emperor, who has taken an interest in the young couple. This book is told in both Cameron and Sophie's third-person POV, which I'm always a fan of. Dual POV in romance novels really works, and the author does a great job with both. I also love third person narratives and this was well-written as well.

This is a marvelous book. The world building is unique and complex. The characters are well developed and likable and there is intrigue for days. If you've read the first book in the series it only gets better in this one. Highly recommended and already eagerly awaiting the next.

A rushed, obligatory sequel. Couldn't finish. So disappointed as the first book was pretty good. No attempt at decent editing, repeated content, poor sentences. Bummer.
