“For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken.
Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems.
When Ivy’s magic – and her life – is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.” The Crowns of Croswald by D.E Night.
Welcome to my first book review on Raising Lost Boys
I was browsing on Instagram , and looking through a few pages I follow, and I noticed quite a few people talking about this book. Recently James had built me a book shelf for my small but growing book collection, so I’m desperately trying to fill it. Even though I already have a long list of to be read books, I pulled this one ahead of all the rest. After going to the author D.E Night’s blog and seeing the trailer (Which was amazing) I quickly jump into the book and let my imagination take over.
To start off I was completely intrigued by the cover, Seeing the girls all bright I was excited to see if and what kind of magic was behind them. A lot of people who reviewed the book have said it is a mixture of a Harry Potter and Cinderella type feel, and they were totally right. Even though I loved this book , the only thing that was a con for me , was I that I was confused on a few parts during the first few chapters, but by the end of the book everything had straightened its self out so I understood better.
Minus that, this book had me guessing what was going to happen next, Every time Fyn and Ivy were together I was hoping Fyn would steal a quick kiss. I fell in love with the Magic, and the creatures throughout this book. From the perfectly put description I could imagine every thing from the dwarf to the Cabby’s. D.E Night did an amazing job keeping you on your toes through out the book and then left you wanting more at the end. It definitely had you getting the Harry Potter and Cinderella vibes through out the whole book, from the Ivy being a Maid to the school and a few other things in between. I honestly did not want to put this book down, trying to make dinner and spilling pasta sauce on it, James had me put it down so I could actually have a conversation with the family and not burn our food.
Finding out from her Instagram that D.E Night has now wrote a second book I am extremely excited to where and what Ivy’s next adventure is going to be. I am giving this book a 5 out of 5. I enjoyed this book so much and encourage you do grab it and dive in to the adventures.
Disclosure : I did this for fun I was not given or paid to write this review, so this is 100% my opinion.
