Entangled in a court ruled by tradition and intrigue, a young witch must come to terms with newfound power and desire and a choice between loyalty and survival. The royal witches of Anglion have bowed to tradition for centuries. If a woman of royal blood manifests powers, she is immediately bound by rites of marriage. She will serve her lord by practicing the tamer magics of the earth, ensuring good harvests and predicting the weather. Any magic more dangerous is forbidden. Lady Sophia Kendall, thirty-second in line to the throne, is only days away from finding out if she will be blessed, or perhaps cursed, with magic. When a vicious attack by Anglion's ancient enemies leaves the kingdom in chaos, Sophia is forced to flee the court. Her protector by happenstance is Lieutenant Cameron Mackenzie, a member of the royal guard, raised all his life to be fiercely loyal to the Crown.Then Sophia's powers manifest stronger than she ever imagined they would, and Cameron and she are inextricably linked in the process. As a witch unbound by marriage rites, Sophia is not only a threat to the established order of her country, but is also a weapon for those who seek to destroy it. Faced with old secrets and new truths, she must decide if she will fight for her country or succumb to the delicious temptation of power.

Lady Sophia Kendall is 32nd in line for the throne of Anglion and only days away from her Ais-Seann, the coming-of-age ritual that will decide her fate. If her family's magical powers manifest in her, she'll be hastily married off to a nobleman, her magic bound to his estate. But before the ritual can take place, Anglion is invaded and Sophia must flee the royal court, accompanied by Lieutenant Cameron Mackenzie, a member of the royal guard. However, that doesn't necessarily stop her magic from emerging -- and trying to consume her. The Shattered Court is the 1st installment of Australian fantasy author M.J. Scott's Four Arts series
