    A bit of a slog. The lore was interesting, but it really was "Info Dump: The Book". It could have been great with some editing. ...

    I had the good fortune to get my hands on an early version of Crown of Feathers, and I immediately fell in love with Pau Preto's beautiful writing. I loved the characters, especially Veronyka and her complex relationship with her sister Val. Fans of action, romance, magical characters,...

    The sort of epic high fantasy that fills up your imagination and heart. Veronyka is a tender soul - I felt for her in her loneliness and betrayal then joy and friendship. So many elements of this story are done beautifully- Veronyka and Val?s complicated relationship and definite...

    Ughhh I have no idea what to say this book! I liked it a lot, but my brain is very tired and I'm still sick which makes writing coherent thoughts hard. Crown of Feathers follows several young protagonists: Veronyka, Severo, and Tristan. There's also some intervening parts that help...

    Synopsis Veronyka is a war orphan who was raised by her deceased grandmother and her older sister, Val. Veronyka and her sister are "animages", and have the ability to communicate with animals. This is not uncommon in the world they live in, but ever since the war their kind have ...

    DNF @ 36% Crown of Feathers has a cool concept on the surface, the cover is beautiful and (eek!) cute phoenixes. Unfortunately that?s where the excitement ends in this one. I found the plot to be typical, the characters undeveloped and overall the tone of the writing to lack excitem...

    Mini review: Trigger warning: Mention of death and war. Up till the point I read. DNF I received this E-ARC via Simon and Schuster Canada and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Crown of Feathers has been getting a lot of buzz and excitement. When I saw it on Netgalle...

    I have only one thing to say: the book does start slow, and soon you?ll drown in historical details and characters. It?s really hard to keep up in the beginning, it?s not an easy read. I compared it to Game of Thrones and I stick to this comparison. I kept reading because I did t...

    My Video Review: https://youtu.be/jHpJd5Op9oM At first, I wasn?t going to do a review, but I think I might film one now. This is interesting because I had some big problems with pacing, but I ended up having a fun time and enjoying the drama despite the first 50-ish pages being...

    Hold on and buckle up guys, this is going to be a long one. First off, it took me 4 days to read this book. FOUR DAYS. Now you may say, "okay, Denia, what's the big deal with that?" Well, I could've read another two books in the time it took me to read that book. It's not so much ...

    There are very few books I could name that feature phoenixes, and even less that feature them as predominately as this one does. This is where my interest for the book stemmed but every other element about it is what kept me so intrigued throughout. The story line, and the whimsical...

    Crown of Feathers is the book you never knew you were longing for until you discover it and come to the realisation that you had been craving a tale about fierce Phoenix Riders for some time. The first instalment of a new epic high fantasy adventure series is reminiscent of Game of Thr...

    Five Feather-Crowned Stars! Plot: 4.5/5 Characters: 4.5/5 Writing: 5/5 When I realised that this book was not only about phoenixes but also phoenix riders I knew I had to read it. I probably love phoenixes just as much (or maybe even more) than I love dragons and I really hoped thi...
