  • Fire, phoenixes, and war - utterly spellbinding.

    This is a book that you will wish you could erase from your memory. Forget it all. Just so you can read it and be stunned by its magnificence all over again. Pau Preto has truly blown me away. Crown of Feathers is not just a book or a story. It’s a world. A world with a history, languages, culture, creatures, and war. We see this world from the perspective of the protagonist, Veronyka, as well as Sev and Tristan, two people whom Veronyka meets along the way. And then there are the phoenixes. Magical, glistening birds with the power to be reborn, and form everlasting bonds with their riders. The opening of this book was utterly hypnotising. There are no gentle introductions here. Val’s betrayal of Veronyka literally took my breath away. Call me naive but I absolutely did not see it coming, and from that point, there was no going back. I needed to finish that book – I can sleep another time! Pau Preto cleverly weaves in a second story, which is the recorded history of the time before the Empire in which the book is set. There are excerpts and proverbs at the start and end of the chapters which gently build up our knowledge of the Empire and the old wars, without invading the flow of the main narrative. I have to confess I was a little nervous of this book, to begin with, I’m not the best at following particularly complex narratives, but Pau Preto has perfected the balance between giving enough information for the world-building whilst also keeping the momentum up. The character development is exceptional; your emotions towards them ebb and flow. You feel their pain, rejoice in their successes, and feel the world beneath you fall away as you take to the skies on the back of a blazing phoenix. Spellbinding, enthralling, mesmerising, captivating – I’ll let you choose your favourite adjective once you’ve read this wonderful book. I absolutely cannot wait for the next instalment – I’m ready for more.

    Thanks for your feedback!
