I received this e-book from Net Galley and was overly excited to read it. This is D.E. Night’s debut novel and after reading this, I cannot wait to read her future novels!
In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret…
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.
Goodreads – 5/5 Star
“To the one to whom this box is entrusted, signed the hand that left her.”
I was really excited to read this book ever since I first saw it. I love the cover and all things magic is awesome. This book is more of a middle grade novel, but I think all ages would enjoy it. This story reminded me a lot of Harry Potter and a little of The Magicians TV show. Ivy is quite the adventurous character she is like a female Harry Potter. While it does remind me a lot of Harry Potter, it is still unique in it’s own way. Unique potions and magical jewels, It’s such a wonderful and colorful story.
This is D.E. Night’s debut novel,full of fun adventures and is enchanting, beautifully descriptive, creative, and imaginative. I was glad to have found a new magical series to look forward to. You’ll be introduced to all kinds of new magical creatures and unique fairies and dragons!
I am super excited for the next book in this series even though The Crowns of Croswald isn’t even out till July 21, 2017, which is right around the corner. I can’t wait to continue Ivy’s adventures and see what becomes of her and her friends.
“All of this, sneaking in, stealing keys, using magic outside of classrooms, and a little book theft has you nervous?”
Be sure to follow D.E. Night on her
