Start your review of The Shadowed Crown (Kingdoms of Sky and Shadow, #2)
I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and The Shadowed Crown is a great sequel. There is a big event at the end of book 1 that changes everything and a big part of this book deals with the result of that event and what it means for all the characters. I enjoyed seeing how they all had to adjust and work with this new information. I can't say much about it for fear of spoiling things and that would be a shame as the twist

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an review for.

Even better then book one!! We are full of secrets in this new installment to this fascinating series. Himika is trying to figure out her place in this new world as well as how things will work with her men. This is challenging as something new seems to be going on every second no matter that they happen to do. Lots of story development with surprises and twists galore leading to another ending that leaves you

OMG!!!! Where to start? This second book in Queen Himika’s story was so GOOD!!!! I am so loving her newfound confidence in both her strength & in her men! There’s a few parts that had me misty eyed and parts that had me seeing red. I need the next book ASAP!! I need to know that all will be well in the Dragon world! So much happened and it would hate to ruin it for anyone so this is all I will say! ...more

It was... okay. But it was, let's be real, a romance. Epic Fantasy it may be, epic it was not.

The plot and characters are good enough but... it all feels like an RH that just happens to be in a fantasy world and giver her the perfect opportunity to just fall in love. And, of course, discover who she really she and what is she capable of and blah, blah, blah...

It felt a little... youngish, like, how could Himiko be so great and respected after giving a speech or two? That's just fantasy and I me

This book was even better than book one, this is an amazing series with magic, dragons, lots of love, and war with plenty of action, betrayals and more. This story has it all really, because it’s also humorous, romantic, sexy/steamy, and constantly kept me on the edge of my seat not knowing what was going to happen next. It just gets better and better as the series progresses and the characters evolve. The writing and detail is amazing and that ending! I look forward to reading what happens next ...more

And it keeps getting better!

Awesome series and I just love that they continue to incorporate characters and updates front the original series and how the priestess is getting on. The spin off was so seem less it almost feels like just one big series instead of 2. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together for both stories and hopefully we continue to get updates from the original as well as the ending for this series!

Love, love, love where this story is going, even though the ending left me a little sad. A lot of time passes in this book and so much happens. Can I just say how much I love Ezeru? I know he will steal my heart completely by the next one. I’m so glad about a certain death and the reuniting of other characters. But, I’m already a little empty at who isn’t there at the end. No death, not really a cliffhanger, just not there. I’m really looking forward to the next book. Love these characters.

Amazing book 2

The continuation of this series was amazing. The dynamics of the kingdom become more and more complex and draw you. The plot twists and turns are magnificent and draw you in. You can’t put the book down, you just have to know if they can make it and what will happen next.
Can not wait for book 3!

Oh my dragon babies

So in love with this series!!!! The magic, the dragon's and of course the Queen herself. This has to be one of the best RH I've ever read, because the world building and storyline are so unique, witty, intense, emotional and sexy, you can't help but fall in love with the amazing characters!

I feel like the action was lagging compared to the previous book. At times neither character nor plot development was guiding the story, but rather just meandering until something occurred.

Himika's harem continues to grow. Trouble with the Rock and Mist dragons seems like it will never end! What a mean cliffhanger at the end too! I can't wait for the next one!

Hard to put it down. Written extremely well with characters that feel like family. Love the enchantment of fantasy and beauty in exotic settings.

This book started to lose me. The plot started to slow down and it was a drag to finish the book. I won't be getting the third book, not unless I have nothing else to read..

Lidiya Foxglove grew up on a steady diet of fairy tales, folklore and fantasy and also reads way too much manga. Fantasy romance is her favorite thing in the world, but she likes it steamy. She also loves cats and tea--it's cliche for a reason!
