The Movement of Crowns by Nadine C. Keels
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Constance is the princess of Diachona and the only child of the King and Queen. She has great aspirations in being her father's heir and showing those who doubt a woman could rule that they are wrong. She has her father's support and is willing to put in the hard work to prove she has what it takes. By her side is her childhood friend and romantic interest Commander Alexander the leader of the her father's army.
Just as Constance is coming into her role as heir, a neighboring empire starts to threaten the people of Diachona. When an allied country is hit by hard times the King's focus is torn and Constance sees the right time to step up to secure her position on the Council. Constance was allowed to travel as a young woman and this helps her with knowledge that could prevent the kingdom from going to war.
I enjoyed this novella. I think Nadine did a great job in creating the world of her series. You can tell she really put thought into creating Diachona and it's people. I just wish it would have been novel length so there could have been a bit more development of the story and the characters. I liked how the religious aspects weren't too overpowering and played in nicely with the story.
I received an eBook copy from the author for my honest review. I don't know if I would have purchased this book on my own otherwise, but I'm happy Nadine got in touch with me to review her book.
