A Crown of Felling is the third novel in Brindi Quinn’s A Crown of Echoes Series, and let me tell you: this is not a series you’ll want to miss out on. I know, I know. I’m horribly biased here, as Brindi Quinn is my all-time favorite indie author. But I still consider this to be the absolute truth.
After the last series of events to overturn Queen Merrin’s life, she is now (mostly) free of the echoes. They’re off searching for another powerful royal to corrupt, which is where the ‘mostly’ part of that sentence comes into play, as Merrin cannot allow that to happen.
Unfortunately, that isn’t the only problem that Merrin and her allies are going to have to deal with. Other truths are forcing their way to the surface, and not all of them are good. With these revelations come new trials, powers, and concerns for the future.
“Vita’s power was unlike anything I had felt before. The opposite of Exitium’s orphic nature, it was a feeling of continuous wonder and light.”
Holy cow. I went into A Crown of Felling with high expectations (how could I not, after the last two books?). I was not disappointed. No, that’s an understatement. I was blown away. This is, in many ways, the best novel in the series thus far.
This is the novel that truly shows the lengths to which Merrin can and will go in order to keep her kingdom and the people she loves safe. It was beautiful, powerful (no pun intended), and heartbreaking all in one. In short, it was perfect.
“I told you Ascian wasn’t our greatest foe. I really should have killed her when given the chance. “
There are so many twists in this novel, I’m honestly not even sure what to talk about next. Merrin’s character is such a bright spot in this world, and I love the narration of her story. It flows so perfectly.
Furthermore, this world is fantastic. And not just because it’s a fantasy world, to be clear. You can see Quinn’s world-building genius in every corner and detail, and it’s enough to make me want to read more about the realm.
Thankfully, there’s one more novel in this series, so I don’t have to say goodbye to this world just yet. Now to sit and patiently wait for the release of A Crown of Dawn.
