The Broken Ones
“SO GOOD. I am drowning in feels. If you haven’t read The Malediction Trilogy then I seriously implore for you to do it before this one comes out. This series is AMAZING. And it has an amazing book boyfriend (who is MINE) and excellent supporting characters. For me, it is Fantasy at its best!”
– The Reader and the Chef
The Broken Ones chronicles the ill-fated love affair between Marc and Pénélope as they struggle to navigate the complex political world of Trollus, where powers on both sides are intent on using them as pawns.
File Under: Fantasy
A prequel to the Malediction Trilogy
Below Forsaken Mountain, a plot is being hatched to overthrow the tyrant king of Trollus, and Marc is the right-hand man of its leader. His involvement is information more than one troll would kill to possess, which is why he must keep it a secret from everyone, even the girl he loves.
After accidentally ruining her sister’s chance to become queen, Pénélope is given one last opportunity by her father, the Duke d’Angoulême, to make herself useful: she must find proof that the boy she’s in love with is conspiring against the crown. If she fails, her life will be forfeit.
Marc and Pénélope must navigate the complex politics of Trollus, where powers on all sides are intent on using them as pawns, forcing them to risk everything for a chance at a life together.
Except being together may turn out to be the greatest risk of all.

– The Reader and the Chef
“I absolutely loved reading this book! It was so amazing to be in the world before Cecile, to see these friends together when Pénélope was still alive, when she and Marc were falling in love. That love changed the group’s dynamics, and I loved reading about it!”
– Words I Write Crazy
“Jensen’s ability to create a mood is nothing short of brilliant, engaging and full of torment. Her ability to track the political scheming and constant intrigues leads to finales that are both tragic and unpredictable. A wonderful addition to a brilliant trilogy!”
– Books Before Bandaids
“It was wildly unpredictable and wholly thrilling to read this book – I honestly couldn’t put it down because I was so busy, my eyes burning through the pages as I was afraid what might befall the characters.”
– YA On My Mind
“I do love the world. I love the intrigue, and the schemes, and evil plots. I love the magic and the messed up nature of it all. And I want everyone to go check it out!”

Praise and Reviews for The Malediction Trilogy:
“Stolen Songbird is an absolutely wonderful addition to the fantasy genre. The book is full of magic, adventure, outlandish creatures, and at its heart is one of the most touching love stories I have ever read … This novel takes a very old fairytale cliché, and turns it into a stunningly original and beautiful story.”
– Avid Reviews
“Overall, Hidden Huntress undeniably surpasses as a sequel to Stolen Songbird. I was blown away by the ending and cannot wait for book 3! Danielle L. Jensen has shaped an underground city of magical creatures into one of my most valued book worlds – and that makes me extremely excited for future works.”
– Life Writings of a Reader
“A completely fitting and engrossing end to a wonderful series. Anyone who hasn’t had a chance to start the trilogy, should pick it up as soon as they can – it’s a fantastic binge read!”
