Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith

The Book ✯✯✯✯✯


You know how sometimes there is a book from your childhood that you continue to go back to, crawl into the pages and find comfort like being under a warm blanket on a cold morning? Yeah. That kind of great. This is an oldie but goodie. Heck, I'm pretty sure this one was old when I got a hold of it as a kid. Now it's ancient. I'm totally kidding...kinda.

Crown Duel follows an incredibly strong protagonist. You don't actually like her much in part one. But that's the beauty of this novel. She's tough, she's difficult to get to know because she never softens. Countess Meliara will become whatever she needs to be in order to lead her rebellion and save her country. But sometimes, when the battles are won, different ones are waged at court as the world starts to rebuild. Here we find Meliara out of her depth, homesick, and vulnerable. And it is here that you love her. 

A land in trouble, and a young woman to save it. This is an absolute classic in YA Fantasy.  It is gold. You absolutely have to read it if you somehow have gone this long without doing so.

  5. I love books that never get old. The Harry Potter series is my childhood favorite and I still enjoy reading it over and over again.

    1. I think Harry Potter is just one for the ages. We have the illustrated versions at home to read to our toddler.

  6. I honestly wish I had the time to re-read some of the books that I loved years ago. I have them all just waiting to be read. Not read this book though.
