I was given an ARC for an honest review
A crown is dangerous. A crown split seven ways is deadly.
One year after the death of her mom, sixteen-year-old Anabella Halt is living on her own and breaking all the rules. Life is tough but ordinary.
Until Ana learns her mom’s dangerous secret—she was the heir to a fallen dynasty on a world ruled by seven families. Her family was murdered one by one. Now, assassins are closing in, and Ana could be next.
With the help of a handsome stranger, Ana escapes to the place where it all began—a starflung world where magic and technology coexist. A place where Ana must navigate a tangled web of friends and foes to unmask her would-be assassin before it’s too late.
Travel to a glittering, dangerous world with political alliances and ballgowns, perfect for fans of Cinder and The Selection.
I really enjoyed Seven Crowns and it hooked me from the start. The protagonist Ana hadn’t had the easiest life growing up and was put into foster care after her mother passed and when her brothers couldn’t look after her.
After instances that don’t add up she is helped by those that knew her mother. With this help she escapes and finds herself on a new planet and having to navigate her way through those that want to see her dead as she is the lost heir to the throne.
The inclusion of politics throughout the book as she needs to learn who she can trust intrigued me. The relationships that Ana made between herself and Adam as well her friendships with Holden and Ophelia was lovely to read about.
The ending made me wanting to jump into the next book and continue the story. I look forward to reading the next book.
