About the Book
by Kaylynn Flanders
Published: July 20, 2021
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
For fans of Sorcery of Thorns and Furyborn comes the thrilling sequel to Shielded about a world in a deadly magical war and the newly crowned king and feisty princess who must defeat the deadliest of foes before there’s nothing left to save.
Although King Atháren’s sister, Jennesara, saved Hálendi from the Gray Mage, the reprieve came at a steep price–the life of their father. Now Ren rules over a divided kingdom, with some who want him dead, and a Medallion that warns of worse trouble brewing in the south.
As second born, Princess Chiara is the perfect Turian royal–perfectly invisible. She longs to help restore peace on the Plateau, but with no magic and no fighting skills, she doesn’t stand a chance against a mage. So when a member of the Turian royal family goes missing and Chiara finds a clue about the rumored resting place of the mages’ long-lost artifacts, she decides it’s time to be seen.
As Ren’s and Chiara’s paths cross, they find the depth of the mages’ hold on the Plateau is more powerful than anyone suspected, and that they must learn to trust themselves, and each other, before the mages retrieve their artifacts and become too powerful to ever defeat.

Shielded was such a fun read and Untethered did not disappoint. It is adventure from beginning to end. I enjoyed new characters we’re introduced to and it was nice seeing others from Shielded.
Chiara is sick of waiting for someone to go out and look for her father who she knows hasn’t just gone missing. She has a bad feeling and with the help of her grandmother she finds herself on the path to not only finding her father but looking for the mages’ long-lost artifacts. She’s determined to find the answers even if it takes her into enemy territory.
Ren leaves the castle to find Chiara and bring her back to Hálendi but when their paths cross and she convinces him to continue on her journey he knows he can’t leave her. He will protect her and in the process he realizes he feels more for her than he thought.
This ya fantasy has love, betrayal, and found friendships. It’s full of adventure and intrigue. I thought the pacing was well developed and I enjoyed the characters. I thought the ending wrapped up this duology well and I will miss these characters. I hope we’ll get to see more one day.
I definitely recommend these books to anyone looking for a great YA duology!
