I was blown away by The Crown by Lynne Stringer. This novel, the second in the series, was a far cry from her first novel, The Heir. All the characters were more fully developed; the internal and external struggles were more skillfully balanced. All the layers of subterfuge and plotting were skillfully woven together and solidly structured, making the science fiction elements more believable. The Crown continues to appeal to science fiction and romance lovers alike, but fans of action and mystery would also enjoy this novel. If you liked The Heir, you’ll love The Crown. Every word gets better, and I can’t wait to read The Reign when it comes out!
