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 . . .
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It’s charming, romantic, funny, and a very easy read. I feel like the main thing I have to say about it, is that I wish there had been more.
The story follows faery godmother in training Ianthe, who is on a seemingly indefinite probation for doing some un-faery godmother like things. Unbeknownst to Ianthe, the king of the dark faeries, Briak, has been in love with her for centuries. When Ianthe gets put on an assignment that he is attached to, the two become close, though she doesn’t know his true identity.
I would have loved to see more world building. We got glimpses of Everland, the realm of the faeries, but there wasn’t much description. I would have loved to see more of it. It’s a very short read, so there weren’t really any subplots, and I feel like the author has lots of material here to add to the plot (especially with characters like Geldon, the troublemaking faery, and Mallory, one of the humans Ianthe is helping).
The romance between Briak and Ianthe was sweet, though I felt it was a little rushed. This was another result of the short nature of the book. Especially once we hit the end, it was like, suddenly everything was happy and good, even though five seconds before it was all shot to hell. I think the author could have put at least an entire other book in between the last two chapter. I’d read it.
I got super excited when the real faery stuff starting happening (The Wild Hunt, among other mildly surprising events) and then it was like, just kidding, the book’s totally over. Sad Face.
It’s not often my review is mainly “I just want more of this”. Changeling’s Crown is a very fun, quick read, with a heavy emphasis on romance, with some entertaining faery magic thrown in. If you’re a romance fan, add it to your TBR pile.
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.
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.
