Crown of Feathers Reviews
Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto is a frolicking adventure about a girl who wants nothing more than to become a phoenix rider.
I really enjoyed reading Crown of Feathers! I loved the story, the fierce female lead, and the inclusion of phoenixes. While the pacing was on the slower side, I appreciated the depth this book offered.
Veronyka and her sister Val don't have much in life--they have a roof over their heads, a small amount of food, and a mutual desire to bond with a phoenix. Veronyka ha ...more
Crown of Feathers is a YA fantasy centered around 2 sisters in a land once ruled by phoenix riders.
I almost DNF'ed this book at 25%, in fact i did stop and read another book instead before picking it back up!
I was really interested in the concept going in and the first couple of chapters were pretty good but after that the story slowed and started to drag. It is pretty heavy on the description which i'm not the biggest fan of but i am really glad i stuck with this. Around the half way point this ...more

”From the ashes I rose, like a phoenix from the pyre.”
Praises from NYT bestselling authors:
"A fierce and incendiary tale of warrior women, sisterhood, and the choices that define us, all set in a soaring new world that readers will fall in love with. I couldn’t put it down."...more

"The unique and imaginative world of the Phoenix Riders had my rapt attention from the first sentence. Nicki Pau Preto is a bright new talent, and I can't wa
I am deciding to DNF, so no rating.
So. I was really, really excited about this from the time I received the ARC. The cover is gorgeous and the synopsis sounded awesome.
It started really strong, but as it went on I found myself bored. I'm not sure why- things were happening, but I just wasn't interested.
I may come back to it at some point, but it'll be a while seeing as my TBR pile is, well, special.
Ok the cover stopped me dead in my tracks cause there's only one thing I love more than owls & that's a Pheonix! *MAJOR HEART EYES* a world ruled by warrior queens?!?! a story about sisters at odds?!?! JEEEEEEZ! 2019 can't come fast enough!
Won an arc as a giveaway on Goodreads and couldn’t be more ecstatic!
Veronyka is a war orphan who was raised by her deceased grandmother and her older sister, Val. Veronyka and her sister are "animages", and have the ability to communicate with animals. This is not uncommon in the world they live in, but ever since the war their kind have been persecuted. Val and Veronyka want nothing more than to become Phoenix Riders, like the heroes who fought during the war.
After a terrible betrayal, Veronyka flees from her sister and finds a sanctuary for her kind, ...more
Trigger warning: Mention of death and war. Up till the point I read.
I received this E-ARC via Simon and Schuster Canada and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Crown of Feathers has been getting a lot of buzz and excitement. When I saw it on Netgalley I requested an arc to see what the buzz was about. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it.
The first few chapters were fairly interesting. There was quite a bit off info dumping but I found it to be useful to understand the world. ...more
