Yes! Brindi Quinn’s latest novel is here, and I couldn’t be more excited about that fact. If you haven’t heard of Brindi Quinn, then let me tell you, you are missing out! She’s one of my favorite Indie authors out there, so you’re going to have to forgive me for a bit of gushing.
Anyway, back to the point. A Crown of Reveries is the second novel in the Crown of Echoes series, which from the looks of things will have at least one more novel in it (who knows, maybe we’ll luck out and there will be more…).
Queen Merrin is a strong and confident woman, who has already gone through hell and back, all with the goal of saving her fellow queen (and friend), Beau. Now Merrin is about to embark on a new adventure, one that puts her squarely in the center of it all.
It’s all thanks to Nemophile’s Crown, and the abilities that come with it. It gives Merrin great power, but power always comes with responsibility and risk. Something that Merrin is about to learn the hard way.
“Run, lion queen. Back to camp, and don’t ever look back. Ever.”
In case you were wondering, yes I did have high expectations for Queen of Reveries, and yes, it did live up to my hopes! That’s always a huge relief, and it makes for an even better reading experience, if you ask me.
Queen of Reveries was a thrilling and fast-paced read. I loved reading every minute, as new details and twists came to light. I already knew that I loved the world and characters (but I still can’t get enough of either), yet even I was surprised by how much fun this book was.
I knew that things were darker than they appeared, in terms of Nemophile’s Crown. That had been hinted at for a good part of A Crown of Echoes. Yet it was still such a compelling part of this novel, and with good reason.
That was far from being the only element in this story that I found myself adoring. Merrin’s voice being one of those leading reasons. She’s such a quirky and bright personality, it’s impossible not to be endeared by her.
“I wasn’t well-suited for life where I was raised, so I set off in search of a new way of living.”
The last book ended on an alarming note, and thankfully A Crown of Reveries picked up right where it left off. That means it’s straight into a whirlwind and adventure! I adore it. As do I love the pairing of Merrin and Windley, but I imagine I’m not the only one feeling that way!
I’ll stop the gushing now, and just leave it at this: A Crown of Reveries is not a novel for fans to miss out on. If you’re new to Brindi Quinn, make sure to check out the first novel in this series, as it is worth it.
