A sci-fi book with a race that spans across its galaxy. Once again, I was drawn to a book simply by a few key things. But seriously, this book is about a reluctant girl competing in a race through the cosmos to find a seal on one planet out of 1,001. And the winner is crowned Emperor. Oh, the race also turns deadly. My sci-fi loving heart was ready for this book. Trigger warnings: alcohol use, blood/gore, death/loss of a loved one, emotional withholding from a parental figure, murd ...more
More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/I greatly enjoyed Corwnchasers. It is an adrenaline ride of a sci fi with a lot of adventure and even a bit of romance thrown in. The characters are very relatable and the lead character is strong and has a nice character growth arc. The side characters are equally interesting and the plot, though not exactly original, moves briskly and in a fun fashion.

When it comes to my thoughts about the book... I didn't exactly have many. :( I thought I would love it more but it sadly didn't evoke any feelings from me. Things were happening and I kept waiting for that at the edge of my seat moment.
I do plan to read the sequel cause I find it hard to drop a series, plus I'm hoping I'll be more into it than I was in Crownchasers.
Thank you NetGalley and HarperTeen for the opportunity to read and review this ARC.
Crownchasers is an absolute blast from start to finish. I literally could not put it down. Loved the characters (well, maybe not Edgar), loved the flashbacks, and loved the action of the chase. This is easily one of my favorites that I have read this year.
I can't wait to read the next book!
