“Adventurous quests, prophetic stones, and forbidden romance! Who could possibly ask for more?” —Lindsay A. Franklin, Carol Award–winning author of The Weaver Trilogy
She’s only seventeen—too young to die.
But the wizard, the ambitious king, and their marauding Borags must be stopped. Fulfilling the prophecy is the only way to defeat them, and after scouring Argonia for the missing gemstones, Lyric and her companions are just steps away from the final, crucial battle.
If they fail, the world they love will sink into a dark night of destruction.
If they fail, they will almost certainly die.
But Lyric is a king’s daughter, and long ago she chose this path. Terrified or not, she will see it to its end, because sometimes, sacrifice is the only way forward.
Dark magic, tragic loss, and tender romance abound in this gripping conclusion to the Lost Stones of Argonia trilogy.
My thoughts: Battle for the Crown is a wonderful conclusion to the trilogy about Princess Lyric and her band of friends. I enjoyed reading more about their quest, as it takes the reader through quite the journey! The author does a wonderful job with the fantasy style world. While this is a great YA series, it's a wonderful, engaging story for readers of all ages! It has a wonderful variety of characters, as well as a lot going on throughout the course of the story. I highly recommend picking it up!
I received this book through Just Read. This is my honest review.
