Every side character she interacts with, she takes the time to learn more and more about them as well as the world around herself. What I found interesting is that she does have plenty of strong friendships within the course of the book, developing as the story climbs to its climax.
The story is a fastpaced one. For those who are into slower paced books with a lot in depth deep dives into the lore, it might throw you off a bit first. The action, the dialogue, and the character moments are where this book shines. Where it does have moments of the day to day of the mages and what they must deal with, they are mostly there to build those moments where the stakes are high.
Give this a try, especially if you are new into YA fantasy. I feel like this book will be a great start to getting you into the fantasy genre. I cannot recommend this book enough. This is a great debut novel and I will like to see more from Renee as she can only improve. Sep 02, Michelle Monaghan rated it really liked it. The story follows Rose and her best friend Tyson as they get transported to the magical realm of Lotheria. Here Rose discovers her unique abilities as a fire mage while Tyson must hide for his safety.
I found it easy to get lost inside this novel. Renee does an amazing job of creating this medieval world of magic and I really enjoyed how she kept her writing descriptive but simple, so you could follow the story.
You will read many novels that include people with magic, but it can often be overdone and reflect common stereotypes. The mages in this world are a refreshing change and their magic and history is crafted with such detail that it keeps you engaged.
My only criticism would be that some parts of the novel moved a bit more slowly than others which is where it lost me a little. Overall, this story was a light and interesting read with an imaginative and fun world to get lost in. Will eagerly await the next book in the series. Oct 16, Auburn rated it really liked it. This is most definitely a high fantasy novel. With an intricate world that has three dimensional characters that will really draw you in.
The characters go through some pretty tough things. So if you want a more non depressing high fantasy this may not be for you. For an 18 year old there is a ton of trials. I enjoyed the story but some of the plot details felt a bit forced.
Poor Tyson deserved better than just being thrown in for a plot point. Most of the story felt depressing for him. I call f This is most definitely a high fantasy novel. I call for a redemption arc where he gets everything he wants. Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was out of my norm as I wasn't expecting High Fantasy when I started. But it definitely had all of the world building you would expect. It was one of the best parts. I loved all of the background and magic.
I am a fan of magic especially if everyone has different types. If you want a high fantasy with 3 Dimensional characters that go through some very tough times then this may just be the book you should read.
Nov 04, John Clark rated it it was amazing. It's certainly a unique way of pulling your main character into another reality Having her fall into a river and come out somewhere completely unexpected. Rose is dancing on the edge of getting in big trouble here in our time by playing with fire. That troublesome fact is what makes her special in Lotheria, the magical place where she lands. Unfortunately, her best friend Tyson, is dragged along when he attempts to rescue her. While humanborn with magical ability are desirable in this new wor It's certainly a unique way of pulling your main character into another reality While humanborn with magical ability are desirable in this new world, those, like Tyson, who possess no such ability, are not and if found, are executed.
Rose must not only navigate the harsh and unfamiliar rules of the mages academy she finds herself attending, she must keep Tyson safe while learning to survive, not to mention deal with things like her ever growing fire powers and rune magic, the secrets behind the way the academy is run, and what part the mysterious and scary Half-Souls play. There's plenty of dark intrigue and tension in this story and they contribute to its being a very satisfying read.
Aug 22, G. Nair rated it it was amazing. Soon after she discovers her abilities, Rose is drawn to a nearby river which whisks her — and her non-magical best friend Tyson — to a fantasy world. There, she must attend a school for mages to learn how to control her abilities, while Tyson must hide away lest he be found out.
Unlike the fantastical world of Hogwarts, the world of Her Crown of Fire is more akin to Westeros — a harsh, medieval realm locked in the grip of a dark age sense of control and justice. Instead of being coddled and mentored, Rose is thrust headfirst into a fight for her day-today survival while learning about her abilities and — occasionally — trying to get back home.
All of this escalates as Rose finds herself drawn into local politics and class struggles against the system she has been forced into. There is never a morally unimpeachable answer to any of the problems Rose is faced with, which makes the book all the better. Additionally, there are some relationship aspects — particularly the concept of magical soulmates — that could use some elaboration, especially when it comes to Rose and her soulmate, whom she avoids for most of the book, which feels like unrealized potential.
But all of those complaints boil down to me wishing that the book was longer, which, at around pages, might bloat an already clean and satisfying storyline. Plus, this is set to be a series, so hopefully there will be more fantastic worldbuilding when His Crown of Embers releases in Nov 20, Alistair rated it it was amazing.
Alright where to begin, I admit at first I was hesitant. I just kept reading, and reading. Now Im not good with writing reviews, Honestly I usually just throw a star rating and leave it at that.
The world. I finished it in a day and now I must wait an unknown amount of time for the next. Apr 18, Jesse rated it did not like it Recommends it for: No one. Simply did not enjoy this YA trash at all. Poor writing style, characters, themes and structure. Not looking forward to 'His Throne of Embers' the next book in this series and will not be purchasing or reading. Renee April, after reading well over two dozen books with a VERY similar name and theme -please be more creative and captivating for your audience instead of trying to fit into a well worn-out mold.
More to follow on my blog. Jan 27, Bryan Fagan rated it really liked it. This is not the type of genre I read but I knew Renee worked hard on this and I was curious to see what she came up with. When I completed the book I must say I was sad to see it end. Renee April has such an amazing way of drawing the reader in it was over before I knew it and I'm a slow reader.
Her Crown of Fire gave me excitement, fun and a wonderful romance. But most of all her story gave me such rich and fulfilling characters I found it hard to believe this was her first novel.
This book has so many things. You will laugh, you may cry a little, but most of all you will be entertained. Jan 09, Dave Deickman rated it it was amazing. Her Crown of Fire was a hurricane, an incredibly unique story that has left me craving for more. The magic system was stellar, the world mysterious and full of dangers, with a hot-headed mage who has an incredible force over fire! Renee April forged and burnished brightly a vivid, fast-paced novel that should not be slept on!
