Title: Untethered (Shielded #2) 
Author: Kaylynn Flanders
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing date: 20th July 2021
Rating: 4/5 stars

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.

My thoughts:
Untethered by Kaylynn Flanders is an enchanting, action-packed, adventurous fantasy story and is the perfect sequel to Shielded. This book picks up a few months after book one. Ren is now the King of Turia, and is finding his new role difficult. On top of all his new responsibilities and his lack of trust in those around him, he is mourning the loss of his father as well.

When a member of the royal family goes missing, Princess Chiara leaves to go find them. But with no magic and fighting skills under her belt, Ren goes after her to help. While on their travels, they discover the true power the mages hold over their kingdom and must fight to do whatever it takes to save it, before it’s too late…

This story is full of incredible characters and awesome sword fighting. It’s so well written and the world building is amazing 😍 It’s definitely a must read for fantasy lovers!
