About this ebook

From the USA Today & International Bestselling author of the Saga of Crimson & Clover comes a gripping new epic fantasy world that will leave you breathless to the very last page.

A crown woven together by lies.

A kingdom with the power to unravel them.

Four Reaches. Four brides. Only a fortnight separates the young women from becoming reluctant queens of the usurper king, Eoghan Rhiagain.

Twenty years earlier, King Eoghan’s father cunningly devised marriages between the highborn sons and daughters of the oft-warring Reaches, sealing the unions before they could protest, shattering existing betrothals in place of forced alliances.

Now, Eoghan, the cruel boy king who stole his crown through murder, demands the eldest daughters of these unions. To accept is unfathomable. To refuse is treason.

The lords and ladies of the kingdom have no choice but to prepare their beloved daughters for the horrors ahead. But they’ll soon discover there are no longer any daughters left to present. All four have disappeared, painting the world with their rebellion.

Theirs is not the only rebellion. Across the kingdom, little fires light within. From the enigmatic sorcerers in the northern mountains, to the magi who both wield and regulate the kingdom’s magic, and beyond... to a place where two prisoners are not what they seem.

As the Reaches ready themselves to face the king, the kingdom hovers on the edge of chaos.

And there are many who recall, in candlelit secrecy, tales of a time before...

Rating: 4.5/5 Beautifully written, The Kingless Crown might just be the next best Fantasy Novel out there. Throughout the book, I felt that each word word was carefully chosen and each sentence was carefully framed. I’ve read many books that read like revised drafts. This was way beyond the final draft. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. If you’ve loved Game Of Thrones, you would definitely love this. It contains a great deal of characters which are all introduced at the start but the author eases them into the story, making it much easier to follow. The characters are well developed, the plot is well done. And it has a map!! It had everything you would want in a book. It’s got family dynamics, romance, action and much more. You hardly find books that have so much depth. It just makes the book worthwhile. I found myself deeply immersed in the story. There is so much. No filler chapters, no unwanted subplot. A series of suspense, chilling twists and magic to take you down the tunnel of enjoyment. I’ve loved it so much that I’m going to buy myself a copy of this book and wait for the next one. Thank you Sarah Cradit and Gladys Atwell for this ARC. Definitely one of the best ARCs I’ve read this year.

There are ways to introduce a series that take you completely out of one place and plop you clearly into the new world step by step as it unfolds in front of you. There may be some confusion or blurry parts but it all becomes crystal clear it's just a matter of time. This author is one who does that and does it well. The Pretender has done so much damage to their past, destroying histories without a thought. All of the secrets will come to light but it comes at a cost. The kids have found the courage their parents lacked and taken things into their own hands. Their individual journeys will take them to far away places with dangers they never realized. At the same time things are happening at home that leave them even more vulnerable. There are a multitude of things going on and this author makes us feel the total chaos, destruction, courage and determination to make things right again and the cost. This introduction isn't a quick read. It's one that will have you settling in for the long hall as you piece together the clues as their truths collide. It's going to be a wild ride as this author tends to do but oh it's so much fun no matter how hard she makes it getting to the end.

Having Read Sarah's books I was excited to read this book. I was not expecting to be pulled in to it so deeply that I didn't want to leave. Now this is a problem since I'm a mother to a 7 year old 😃 so I read until late at night. This felt like a version of Reign (the tv show) mixed with magic and battles and issues of Game of Thrones. So needless to say I loved it! Being on the next one!!!
