I voluntarily accepted an ARC from the author. This does not affect the contents of my review, or my opinion.

This book continues where The Gift-Knight's Quest ended (click the link to view my review of TGKQ). The Crown Princess' Voyage (TCPV) is the sequel in this series, and it would be a challenge to understand this book without having read the prequel. In this book familiar characters return, and new characters are introduced, in order to get us to (what I believe/hope) will be the third and

I love a good scandal surrounds the throne story and this one didn't disappoint! Chandra is even thought to have killed her own family when the book begins.

I should have read book 1 first, as I believe I was missing bits and pieces that would have made for a better grasp on the characters and the world itself.

Love the nod to the Lock Ness monster :) at least that was how I saw them! I'd love to hear the author confirm or deny that is what they were based on.

4/5 stars for an interesting read!

“‘Honestly, I fear we’ll nourish a beast, or drown in bottomless waters. The ocean is not a proper place to die.’
‘Then fear enough for both of us, because I don’t.’”
– The Crown Princess’ Voyage by Dylan Madeley

(I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Crown Princess Chandra Kenderley is a powerful sorceress, a liar and a betrayer who allegedly stole leadership from her royal father by murdering him in cold blood. At least, that’s what she’s being falsely accused of

I enjoyed this read although I found it difficult to get to grips with the many characters initially. It was worth the time spent though. The author does a good job of introducing them and explaining background. I did feel as if I should have read the first book although there is enough description of characters to make it a standalone. The plot develops into a number of battles and subplots within the main story. I found the two female protagonists interesting, one being a witch and the second ...more

An enchanting story with good twists and turns

This is a sci-fi fantasy action/adventure story with mysticism, witches, goddesses and other amazing creatures. It is book 2 of a trilogy and I didn't feel that I'd missed something by not have read the first book as this story appears to standalone. A wonderful world is created and enriched with many characters and creatures that at times I struggled to keep tabs on. In the end I stopped trying and just took them as they came. The two principal

The thing I enjoyed the most about this book has to be the worldbuilding. The style eased the reader into a fantastic world using a contrast between the main characters who happen to be a witch and a goddess. Alathea, the goddess, was the better of the two in my opinion because I found her struggles and character development to be so relatable. Chandra, the witch, was also an enjoyable character just for the way that each of the two stand up for what they believe in. As the book progresses, we ...more

‘The Crown Princess’ Voyage’ is book two in the ‘Gift Knight Trilogy’ but the story stands alone. A tour-de-force of intrigue and conflict, the narrative follows the aspirations of two female protagonists, Goddess and witch Alathea hell-bent on changing the world, and Crown Princess Chandra who fights for her rights, her people and her country. Each woman is supported by a cast of believable characters; so many, in fact, I struggled with who was who in the beginning few chapters. However, all ...more

Renewing Ancient Battles

The Crown Princess' Voyage may have begun the new world war, but the heart of the people will come together like no other time. This book is full of sea voyages, battle scenes on the water and land, and cunning war tactics to take advantage of the land’s resources. When Chandra is invited to a strange land by a mysterious invitation, she has no idea what she has set into motion. Ancient wars are being renewed with a vengeance, yet the people, led by Derek, are not going

I loved the historic elements entwined with the fantastic magical elements, and you can’t go wrong with a goddess as a main character! There are lots of characters, and lots of action, but the women are kick-ass and believably strong. Alathea is a wonderful character, and her complex personality shone through her different interactions. The author did a good job of weaving in the earlier events of this series so someone picking this book up wouldn’t get lost.

This is an interesting and well thought out tale with likable characters. Book one set the scene and introduced you to the people and lands. Book 2 takes you on a journey. The personalities of the main characters develop well. All in all, this is an enjoyable read.

What a great book; I thoroughly enjoyed following the swordsmen and sailors through this epic realm. A few monsters, a little magic and a lot of action.

*This book was gifted to me by the author. The below review is my honest opinion*

I hate to not like books that authors gift to me, but I fought to finish this one.

This book picks up where the previous book left off, a new princess and her angry subjects.

This is almost starting to feel like Game of Thrones but with worse characters, less world-building, and little to no fantasy. The main reason I enjoyed the first book was because I actually cared about what

Note: I received this book from the author in return for an honest review.

The only criticism I had regarding the first book was the difficult transitions between past, present, and speakers. This is resolved in The Crown Princess’ Voyage, making the read much smoother and more enjoyable.

Whereas the first book spent a lot of time focusing on world building and the lore of the world, The Crown Princess’ Voyage is able to sweep forward with the story, already having a solid foundation.

The main
