Kid View: Crowns of Croswald by D.E. Night (The Croswald series, book #1)
D.E. Night‘s Crowns of Croswald is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I’d say number four on my list, Xav’s Favs! I think my favorite character is definitely Ivy, I mean she is sort of hard to not like, she’s totally a daredevil! The reason I like her soo much is because you can never ahead of time figure out what she’s about to do until she’s actually doing it. She just makes the entire story more interesting and hard to predict. I definitely give it five stars but think it is more of a YA book than MG, so I’d say 12+.
The book is about a girl named Ivy who has worked in as a scaldrony maid for the last sixteen years thinking this was her destiny. But she has magic in her blood. And now she has to navigate through first year at the Halls of Ivy (magic school) without, 1. putting herself in danger, and 2. being expelled. Though those two thing may seem extremely easy to accomplish, that’s not true for Ivy.
P.S. I just found out there is another book in the series! OMG! I am geeking out right now!
This an extremely good book, a great book in fact, for audiences who love a darn good magical book! 😉
Here is my very own book trailer and it is the first I have ever made…;) I hope you enjoy:
