The Crimson Crown is book four in the Seven Realms series. It’s definitely a series that you want to read in order. It’s a high fantasy series, and it’s one of my FAVORITES of all time. If you haven’t read this series yet, you really should!
Since this is the fourth book in the series, I don’t want to get into to many specifics. The series follows several characters, but the main two are Princess/Queen Raisa, and the infamous street lord Cuffs. I also love that there are duel perspectives from these two characters in the story. There is action, betrayal, love, royalty, and did I mention WIZARDS!
This is an extremely well written series, the way everything seamlessly comes together through the four books is amazing! The world building is fantastic. It didn’t matter how long it was between books as soon as I started one I was instantly transported into this world and it all came back to me. It’s one of those kinds of series. And the characters. Oh the characters. I loved all of them. The minor characters were extremely well developed. I even loved to hate the villains! I’m going to miss all of them so much!
These books got better as the series went along! I can’t say enough good things about these books. I just LOVE them. Do yourself a favor… READ THEM!
