This is a delightful YA fantasy story involving a young lady with magical abilities and a magic school where she finds herself belonging. This book feels reminiscent of Harry Potter, in all the right ways.
Young Ivy Lovely, care-taker of scaldrons (cute dragons that provide fire for cooking food for a castle) is content enough with her lot in life, though she secretly wishes for more. She shows talent for remembering her dreams, a photographic memory, and being able to perfectly s ...more
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are unique, as is the story. I get reminded of Harry Potter with the whole school and magic thing, but the author has managed to make it so unique and different. The description of the world is amazing. You get pulled into a mystical adventure right from the beginning. The cover is wonderful and the author is really nice, making the whole experience even better. I would ...more
In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret...

I absolutely loved the world created in this book. The magic and the way magic is used is totally unique. I loved the idea of a school of magic (it really did have some HP vibes) and I loved the characters! Ivy kinda reminded me of a mix between Hermione and Luna which made her totally awesome in my opinion.
It was an action packed, fun filled story and I definitely recommend giving it a read!
Why you say, when I've been dying to read this book since the first time I saw it?
Well, let's just say that I feel the author has this strange aversion against food??
I mean, Ivy's first day at school she skipped lunch (and breakfast, I'm pretty sure, since she said that lunch was the first time she saw the dining hall). Then, the second day, she also skip ...more
It comes off a bit like Harry Potter meets Cinderella. You have the ‘scullery maid’ who discovers she’s not what she thought she was and off to a new magical world she goes. Okay so that’s taking paraphrasing to the extreme but ...more
My reviews are always honest, because there truly isn’t a point in lying to yourself and others. Not all readers share the same interests and likes. So what I might like you might not, however, there is always and very thin line between bashing and giving constructive criticism. That’s the line where I stand.
The Crowns of Crosswalk is a delightful book. The book ...more
It was a fun read and definitely original. I was entertained the whole time. I loved all of the characters and all the magic! Definitely recommend this to anyone thats looking for a fun read!

What I liked the most about this book was it's setting. The descriptions and the world building were very well executed, making the reading experience ...more
3.5 Stars! This was quite a fun adventure! I keep seeing it being compared with Harry Potter and I definitely see why, it was Harry Potter meets Disney's "Tangled"!
I loved the world the author created with the unique magic of the "scriveners" and the "crowns", all the interesting creatures and the strange characters. I loved Ivy, the main character, but she came across like a middle grade charact ...more

The Crowns of Croswald seems set to become a new magical series in many respects similar to Harry Potter. However this in no way detracts from this enchanting and beautifully descriptive debut from D E Night. It was fun to read and I look forward to devouring more of Ivy's adventures as she tries to free Croswald from the dangerous clutches of the Dark Queen and discover her birthr ...more
