    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 ...

    This fantasy was enjoyable and moving. Though I was able to predict some of the plot points and character actions, I still enjoyed this first book by Nicky Pau Preto. She starts her story years after a war, with three different young people, Veronyka, Tristan and Sev. All their elders ...

    Enjoyable YA fantasy read. Parts of it are very good indeed. The simple writing had me hooked quickly. Probably - as an oldie - 3.5/5 but I'm guessing YAs will rate it higher. Full review nearer publication. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    This series has the potential to break into my favorite fantasy series of all time. There were twists I didn?t expect, characters I instantly loved, a wildly entertaining plot, and fantastic world building. It was a bit of a slow start, but that also may have been because I was readi...
