Changeling's Crown is the story of Briak and Ianthe -- a fey lord who knows exactly what he wants, and a faery godmother who can't seem to do anything right, no matter how much she tries. When their paths cross -- that is, when Briak makes sure their paths cross, everything Ianthe knows about herself is called into question. Does she dare to follow where her heart is leading her, or will she held back by what her society tells her she ought to be?
On the surface, this is a fun, attractive, sometimes light-hearted novella: the ups and downs Ianthe is struggling through are a comedy of errors, the sort of 'so bad it's either laugh or cry' days that I know we can all relate to. Threaded throughout, however, is a more serious, darker tale of lies, deceit, and the knots that we often tie ourselves in trying to please others, ignoring all the while what our hearts are telling us about ourselves. It doesn't hurt at all that the chemistry between Ianthe and Briak is steamy . . .
This was a cute story about faery godmothers, in particular on named Ianthe. She has good intentions; they just always seem to go amiss. She has one last chance to help a human couple before the Faery Godmother Board strips her of everything. Biak is the Dark Faery King who is captivated by Ianthe and wants her for his bride. However, he knows that she will be somewhat difficult to win over, since he his considered "dark." This sums up the entire plot-boy sees girl, boy likes girl, boy realizes girl is something special, and boy tries to catch girl. Cute story, I read it in about an hour and it won't take all of your brain power. POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT******I'm not sure if the author meant for Ianthe's heritage to be a secret or not, but anyone who has read books involving the fae will immediately know her heritage. It is right in the title*******END SPOILER ALERT.
While this was a short book Revezzo did a good job with her characters. I wanted to smack Geldon, he was such a prig. I enjoyed the scene with Ianthe on the poor possessed horse-that was a tribute to Revezzo's imagination. I'm not sure why Ianthe's parents never shared her history with her, but I guess it was because she wanted to be a faery godmother. I'm really not sure what else to say about the book, because it was short and the plot basic.
If you're looking for a cute book to read at the beach or something light then this is an excellent choice. I look forward to watching Revezzo as she continues to write.
Ianthe is a fairy godmother in training. Well, kinda. After the Snow White fiasco, she’s been waiting for her chance to get out of the penalty box and back in the game! Unfortunately, her latest assignment isn’t cooperating, and there’s a sexy human that she can’t help but feel drawn to. Humans are off limits though—so it’s a good thing Briak isn’t really a human. He’s the ruler of the dark faeries, and he’s ready for his happily every after—with her…
“Did I mention I love troublemakers?”—Briak
This was a cute love story for fairy tale fans. It reads like a fairy tale so that you’re in the world with not much description for the magical elements, you have some higher level lessons to learn (balance between “good” and “bad”), and it’s a fast read with insta-love, fairy godmothers, and a bit of happily ever after thrown in.
Since it felt like we’re tossed into this new world in the deep end with no floatation devices, I was confused through most of the story, trying to figure out the magical rules and mythology as well as the relationships between the characters. By the end, everything is explained, and it made sense since the mystery and all major questions were answered—but I was still left puzzled about some aspects.
Ianthe is a bit on the clueless side, but you can’t help but root for her as she tries so hard to be good at something that’s she’s pretty bad at. Training to be a fairy godmother for her is like having a clumsy person with no coordination skills trying to train for the Olympics. But bless her little faery heart, because she’s trying! I didn’t end up loving Briak as much as I usually do with anti-hero romances, but it was entertaining seeing two sides of him as he tried to get the girl while causing mischief and mayhem.
In addition to the low-heat romance, there’s also some higher level musings on the role of good and bad in the world. Sure, Briak isn’t apologetic about his dark role, and that’s actually one of the things I liked about his character. He’s accepts who he is as well as Ianthe. As someone who isn’t very good in her career, she needs all the support and help she can get! As he notes, you can’t enjoy happiness and joy unless you’ve also experienced sadness, so he and his people play an important role in maintaining a balance. And with that reasoning, who could deny the guy his happily ever after?!
Overall, this is a cute read with some funny, romantic, dark, and thoughtful moments and a 3 out of 5 for me!

I give it 4.5 fangs.
Changeling’s Crown by Juli D. Revezzo is a stand-alone book. I would suggest this book for adults, but could be read by young adults.
Isanthe is a fairy god-mother in training. Or is at least trying to be. It doesn’t seem she is very good at it. Her spells don’t always work and she sometimes has thoughts that just aren’t right for a fairy god-mother.
Briak is the Dark Fairy King. He is everything you would expect from a dark fairy. But he loves Isanthe. He must convince her that she is not meant to be a fairy god-mother, but should be his queen.
Without giving away any spoilers, if you like magic with romance, then you will like this book. I do hope Juli writes more books like this one.
