Torn (The Unraveled Kingdom #1) Read Online Free - 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.

This review may also be found at Books, Vertigo and Tea.
TORN had already landed on my radar when I received word that a copy would be arriving. And it was not long into the book that it solidified its spot among many other anticipated releases and immediately took precedence over my current reads...

Review from Tenacious Reader: http://www.tenaciousreader.com/2018/0...
Torn by Rowenna Miller was just a joy to read. I loved the concept of integrating magic with sewing and quickly found myself swept away into the world and character of Sophie. She is innovative, independent and loyal, though he...

6.5/10 - Reviews at Pages Below the Vaulted Sky
This was a bit of a disappointment. While I liked the first 1/4, the rest of the book didn't quite match up with the expectations I had going in.
Torn tells the story of a dressmaker named Sophie who has the ability to add charms (things like luck, pr...

I'm very glad I didn't see the "for fans of The Queen of the Tearling" line in the blurb, because if I had, I'd never have read Torn. I am pleased to say, however, that even if you hated Tearling (like I did), you can still really enjoy Rowenna Miller's debut (also like I did)!
Torn has a...

What a delightful book!
There was just so much in here that brought me joy. I devoured this book in a single day. So how to tell you about TORN? Well... imagine if, in revolutionary France, Danton had a seamstress sister who could work magic. TORN is a fantasy novel that centers socioeconomic conf...

DNF @ 24%
I was so excited for this one. Magic, political intrigue, rebellion/revolution... I was so ready, but this book just didn't hit me right.
It was a bit slow for my preferences. I tend to like a faster pace, so this i...
