I bumped the rating up because I enjoyed the last 50 pages. I will be talking more about this book in my January wrap up.

From the moment the ship leaves port I knew I was in for a ride with many twists and turns. In Return of the Crown, the traditional style of storytelling runs the gamut of fantasy related imagery without feeling out of date, or overwrought with detail. There are lots of interesting creatures that Rayvn befriends as she makes her ascent (or descent) to battle the evil Zelera. The landscape of Ravyn's and Blade's trek involves a labyrinth of obstacles, each with its own unique character and degree ...more

I loved this book. I cannot find the words to describe my feelings right now, as I have just finished it 2 minutes ago. I find that this book can be aimed at all ages to be read, not just the YA. The plot was fast paced and action packed, there was never a dull moment. The plot also kept me on my toes, wanting to know what happens who the characters will encounter next. I also loved the magical factor of it- especially the unicorns! The characters were great overall as well. The magical creature ...more

I won this book as part of a Goodreads Firstreads giveaway.

There's magic (both dark and light), dragons, elves, talking wolves and all kinds of dark creatures in this wonderful fantasy journey. The storyline follows the coming of age of a teenager as she discovers her magical powers and that only she can save her kingdom from the dark foreces. The story moves well and keeps the reader engaged. It definitely sets itself for a sequel (which I would love to read if and when it comes out).

Definitely written for the preteen/tween age group, this being said it is fast fun read. The writing is good, the characters are well formed, and it is a classic good vs evil tale. The evil is truly evil with the hand wringing and crackles and taunting of her captives, they are entertaining and easy to root against with boos and hisses. While the good guys you cheer and root for. I enjoyed this read and escapades of our young hero's along with the magical characters they come in contact with on ...more

The Return of the Crown was an enjoyable read that took me back to my childhood in many ways. This is written for younger audiences, I assume, just by the tone and content in the story. It is fast-paced, and definitely never boring! You've got elves and sharks, unicorns, and harpies, and all kinds of magical creatures in this storyline. It follows a young girl, a Princess named Ravyn, as she goes on a quest to reclaim her kingdom, save her parents, and overthrow her tyrannical aunt Zelera.

Young Ravyn faces the loss of everything she knows when her aunt, practitioner of dark magic tries to wipe out everyone who stands between herself and the throne. The young girl is dumped on an island with no idea what has happened to her parents. She would have grown up alone if not for the elf Rowan who tended the island. Rowan ensured that Ravyn grew up to be an intelligent and resourcefu

Upon her sixteenth birthday, when her natural talents in the light arts appear, the fun and the quest begins. Finding her way back will be more difficult than she anticipated. With the help of old friends, and new enchanted friends, she faces new challenges, learning that magic is no

For me, this book started off kind of slow and it took a while for me to become connected to the characters. I didn’t really like the cover, and it took a while for me to figure out how old Ravyn was, and I wish I would have known this sooner so I could picture her better. But once I got into the story everything started coming together and I really liked the adventures and dangers Princess Rayvn and her friends faced. My favorite was the dragon and the Harpys. Actually, all of the magical creat ...more

I loved this book and had a difficult time putting it down. It has everything elves to wolves, unicorns to dolphins, and much more. Millie Burns takes a unique look at magic and magical creatures. I also loved that this book showed the power of compassion. Which may not be a magic power, but its results are just as powerful as a magicians. I enjoyed her book immensely and truly hope that there will be a second book.

This book is a well-written and entertaining adventure from page one until the last page. A fantasy tale, Burns relies on an old school, borderline fairytale premise, to create this story, which makes it wonderful for middle-graders. Infused with dragons, magic, and even a wicked aunt who steals the crown, it is a story of good vs evil. The writing is full of action, provides good imagery, but never gets bogged down in descriptive tedium.

Fantasy/fairytale 5 stars.
