*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Book one in the new Vampire Crown series. What incredible world building! We are transported to a world separated by a magical mountain that is due to come down. On one side we have a young woman bound to S'Kir as well as the Unseen Gods that is called by the mountain giving her importance. She also gives us a little romance throughout the book which is sweet and sexy at the same time. On the other side is the Vampire Kingdom that is currently putting a new Queen and King in power. This side tells the new Queen's story as she fights (and other things hint hint) her way to winning all of the challenges. This is an in depth story that will pull the reader in making them wonder what fascinating thing will happen on the next page. My only real complaint is that it is supposed to a RH novel though none of that was present but maybe it will later in the series. If you are a fan of fantasy novels that have some well-developed main characters then you should give this a shot. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
