Publisher's Summary

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she's left bruised and devastated - and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they'll kill her.

Then there's Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy's bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else - he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn't figure out who she can trust - and fast - it's not only her heart that will be torn apart but civilization itself.

Critic Reviews

" Torn was an emotional ride that was filled with uncertainty and characters I absolutely loved! It was everything I was hoping the second book would be and much, much more!" ( Star-Crossed Book Blog)

Disappointed

One of those angst ridden characters that is often to stupid to live. It was promising but I wanted to bang my head on the wall to much to enjoy it

ehhhh

ok we obviously need a thesaurus so that another word to describe a house in New Orleans other than antebellum!!! omg if i had to hear the word antebellum being used to describe Brighton and her crazy moms house one more time..i mean really more than three times is just too much. and the word comfortable...ugh. The first book in this series was really great and hilarious...but this one...well it just really got on my nerves...repetitive and oh so PREDICTABLE!!! disappointed to say the least.

Just pure love for this series

Would you consider the audio edition of Torn to be better than the print version?

I really, really loved this audio version because the narrator distinguishes very well between characters and she really impressed me with her version of Tink.

What other book might you compare Torn to and why?

I believe I already mentioned this on the first book in this series, but she reminds me quite a bit of the Karen Marie Moning "Fever" Series. Both are all about the Fae, but what this book has that the Fever series is missing is TINK!

What does Amy Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings a different personality and attitude that you may not pick up if you just read the book through print version.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really enjoyed the part where Tink morphed into his human form and of course, the ending which I won't give away, but it is perfect!

Any additional comments?

I am so excited to read the 3rd book in this series! Counting the days! If you enjoyed any of Karen Marie Moning's books, then you will certainly enjoy this series!

This one was very hard to get through!

ok so I really wanted to love the story but the M.C. female made it so hard! The decisions she made had me sitting here shaking my head thinking... what an idiot! I really wanted to like the story but just couldn't get past screaming and throwing my headphones off at times. i will not be listening to another one of these stories. i dont think my nerves could handle it.

Love this series bummer is waiting 2 yrs for next

If you could sum up Torn in three words, what would they be?

It's Absolutely Awesome

What was one of the most memorable moments of Torn?

When Ren rescued Ivy

What about Amy Landon’s performance did you like?

She did a great job and you knew which character she was speaking as she can change her voice so expertly

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but it was too long for that of course I won't complain as I loved every minute of it

Any additional comments?

I had to wait almost 2 years after wicked for torn to see what happened and now it'll probably be another 2 yr wait for next in series and hopefully the final

The Plot Thickens

The Prince, Ren, Tink, and Ivy oh the endless back and forth. It was a fantastic book 2 I loved it.
There were some pretty trying times for Ivy but I really think she held up. Will it haunt her later, of course, she cares so much. The Prince is something else man he really makes for a good villain.

Tink later in the book omg he is just precious and Dixson LOVE!

I don’t want to give anything away so I will leave the review with I hope they can all get their collective revenge!

The narration again fantastic I love that each character has their own distinct voice.

Not for young adults

One of my fav authors. But this book is so not for young adults and teens. The sex scenes are pretty descriptive.

Predictable

Warning: There are spoilers in this review.

Usually, when I’m reading a book I think I know what’s going to happen, but I’m usually wrong. Not with this book. I figured out that the prince of the fae was going to parade around as Ren to trick Ivy. I also figured out that Val was double crossing The Order. All in all it was a good story.

Perhaps the most predictable book I’ve ever read...

Sure, all these YA paranormal romance stories are to some extent predictable, but with this book, it’s like she TRIED to make sure no one is surprised by anything. Slow moving. Still wearing a daisy bra and saying “donkey balls.” Wicked was intriguing - even if there are several parallels with the Lux series - and learning about the world and the characters was fun and interesting. Torn is just a filler for what I seriously hope is going to be a much better third book.

That being said, the imagery of sexual situations in this book (and in the first) is VERY well done and wholly exciting - in true Armentrout fashion - and I still love her and will read/listen to her work. I think this particular book just missed the mark for me.

Love this series

I decided to re read the wicked series again as JLA is one of my absolute favourite authors, actually probably my favourite if I’m honest. So far I haven’t found a book she has written that I didn’t love and have re read.
The first book in the series was excellent. It leaves you needing to know what happens next. I read a review that says it has too much sex in this instalment. I admit there is more than in the first book but for me it doesn’t take anything away from the story at all. It is obvious that Ren is really into Ivy and even though they aren’t my favourite couple characters from JLAs books they have grown on me and I found myself hoping they get to stay together and there’s a HEA here. Even re reading it for about the 5th time overall, it doesn’t ruin it knowing I already know the outcome. There are so many obstacles for the couple to face and more so for Ivy alone. I love Tink, he brings a great lightness and comedy to the story and it carries across into the 1001 nights series The Prince/The King/The Queen. You also get to find out about some of the characters get on after this series which is great. Overall I would recommend this Wicked series and the follow books. Cx

Loved this book

The story keeps you locked in, just like the last book, once you read it, it draws you in. What Ivy goes through is awful but faithful Ren is there, loved their journey. Can't wait to read the next book :)

Too much sex

The first book in this series was absolutely gripping so I was really excited when the second was published. Unfortunately there seems to be more sex scenes than dramatic scenes in this book and, although it later becomes apparent why the sex was so important, it really did get to me how much sex there was. It was like reading a young adult book crossed with a porn magazine.

Picked up after watching the movie

I needed to know what happen next after watching the Wicked Movie. BOY WAS I UNPREPARED! The books are a lot wilder in the sex scenes than I anticipated. Not that I’m complaining though. But yeah, be prepared for some hot and heavy content in the first half of this book.

I found the last few chapters dragged a little during her time in the room. But I can see why it was written this way. I look forward to seeing what PassionFlix might do if they film a sequel.

I also loved the narrators prince voice. Really helped me delve into the story deeper.

Not JLA’s best but still good

I’ve enjoyed this series so far and will jump straight into the next book so I must like it. Definitely not as good as her more recent works but still amazing.

Average

The story had potential but is a bit weak. Not sure if there is going to be book 3 as the ending was a big let down.

Amazing Trilogy - A must read

If you love a good Trilogy then this is perfect. Great story line, with great chapter cliffhangers.
