Crowned
by Christina Bauer
(Beholder, #4)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: November 28th 2017
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis:

Beauty. Romance. Power. It’s all in the eye of the BEHOLDER.

At last, Elea has found the love of her life. Unfortunately, the evil Tsar Viktor is about to unleash an army of twisted mages bent on killing everyone Elea cares about… including the man who’s stolen her heart.


So what’s a powerful witch to do? Why, organize a league of magical warriors, of course!

Elea recruits and trains a fighting force to take down the Tsar. That’s challenge enough, but on the eve of battle, Elea realizes that her true enemies may be far more powerful than even Viktor: The deities Oni and Yuri could be out to destroy her as well. With major battles brewing on two fronts, Elea’s not sure that she’ll win, but with true love to inspire her, she’s certainly ready to fight.

4 out of 5 (very good)


Crowned is the fourth book in the Beholder series, and it does need to be read in order to get the full enjoyment from the storylines.

Elea and Rowan are true mates, and have shared their magick, creating hybrid magick. When the Casters throw the 'greatest celebration ever', Elea is chosen to speak with two trickster gods. They agree to help her end the tyranny of the Sire and the Lady, but at a cost. Elea doesn't realise the true cost of their help until it is too late.

This is a fast-paced book, with action on more fronts than Elea would like. Not only does she have to fight to find the Sword of Theodora, she learns more about her history, which is a shock in itself. Also, something has happened to Rowan, so she is fighting for their bond too. However, old friends that she thought gone for good show up, and help her along the way. And Jicho is also there, helping however he can.

Well written, this book has smooth pacing, and a storyline that will keep you turning the pages.
