The start of "Crown of Feathers" was rather heavy with all the information the author was giving the reader and for a while I was wondering whether it was worth persisting, or not. However, I am glad I did because the book improved A LOT! Veronyka was a worthy protagonist - strong, compassionate and intelligent. I thought she was a great role model for girls. The other characters were varied and complex and the stories of Sev, Tristan and Val, that weaved through the novel, were interesting. However, Veronyka's story was definitely my favourite.

The world-building was rich and detailed and it was obvious that Nicki Pau Petro had put a huge amount of time and effort into creating her world. I was touched by the bond the animages had with their phoenixes and I loved the descriptions of these majestic birds. Before I had finished the novel I wanted one of my own.

Full of intrigue, adventure and magical creatures, and with an unexpected ending, "Crown of Feathers", despite its length was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I look forward to the next book in the series. ( )

Crown of Feathers is a book I got from my Owlcrate subscription book box. I decided each month I should read one or two books that I got from the subscription so I can reduce my TBR books.
While I was reading, I was listening to the audiobook through my Audible app.
I can say about myself is that I am new to the fantasy genre, and I think "Crown of Feathers" os one of the exciting and intriguing worlds I've read until now.
Phoenixes are fantastical creatures that I like. For me, it is a very innovative story about those creatures.
The other thing I liked about this world is that most of the rulers are women. I also, like the excerpts of the history that explains the back story.
Each character has its secrets, and not everything is reviling, and there are more secrets to be vilified in the next books of the series. The twists and turns make this book a page-turner.
I have the sequel, and I will read it soon because I want to find out what will happen to the phoenix riders, Veronyca, Tristan, Sev & Val. ( )

This particular read caught me by surprise. While the very beginning of the book was quick to catch you and pull you in, the beginning-mid to the actual mid slowed down for me, but it was building the world and the characters in an amazing manner. Once the middle hit everything started falling into place. Character connections and revels started coming to light that completely flew over my head in the initial part of building the world until just the right moment when they connected and it just made you sit back and go "WOW, how did I not catch that" And that very last page, that reveal was so head turning and just mind blowing, I didn't know how to react.

The story didn't fall into the YA instalove nonsense and I could not be happier about that. The story focused on the actual STORY and wasn't a YA romance novel being disguised as fantasy. So many YA books fall to this and its frustrating so for this not do that is amazing. The relationships that are "present" are building slowly and naturally and that flows so much better with the story, but its not the focus.

The characters are all so well written, every character is like-able in their own way, expect for Val she gets negative points because she mean and rotten as hell. The character I liked most was Tristan, he started out as a hot head but then slowly his real personilty shown through and he was just a big sweetheart.

*Spoiler*
The way Tristan was written for handling the reveal of who Nyk really was, was amazing. I was so thankful the author did not go the route of making him turn into some mean, angry, unforgiving brute. He listened to Veronyka and he understood her reasons and why she did what she did, he didn't dismiss her or her concerns and he didn't make her feel bad about them. The aftermath of the reveal and how it was handled was so amazing and it just made Tristan's character even better for me. ( )

More than anything, Veronyka longs to be a phoenix rider. The only problem? The riders disappeared nearly two decades ago, and even in lands outside the oppressive empire, animages like Veronyka and her sister Val are treated with suspicion.

Even though life is tough, we don't start the story feeling too down for the sisters, cause guess what, they've found a pair of phoenix eggs! So, the eggs hatch, Veronyka bonds with her beautiful bird, and then it's off to the hidden enclave of phoenix riders to train....Or not.

Right in the beginning, there is a huge twist, which I was not expecting.

While this is first and foremost Veronyka's story, her journey is connected with those of Sev and Tristan. The POVs felt well-balanced, in both intrigue and importance to the story. And even though soldier Sev and phoenix rider Tristan know information which is secret to Veronyka, this information is rarely shared with the reader until Veronyka discovers it for herself. Honestly, this was one of my favorite things: getting to see different sides to the action, but still feeling invested in the big reveals.

Lots of Phoenixes, names with the letters K and X, and stubborn horses. Sadly, no epic training montage. ( )

This has a really cool twist, I mean the idea enters the head, but with so much going on and how the main character's story collide together, you kind forget about it. Veronyka is one cool cucumber, Val is a bitch, Triston is wishy-washy, and Sev is closeted. Oh Yeah, Trixxy is the wise, crazy, secretive old lady. I loved this cast of characters and the side line narrative in each chapter. ( )
