Overview

A Crown With a Mind of its Own...When Liras-ven Tsormelezok set off into his garden that morning, he knew he could claim some sort of royal ancestry—but then, so could most of the rest of the population of Averidan. Therefore, being named King while pruning his klimflower vines was a trifle unexpected. But that was only the first of the surprises waiting for Liras. For example, he discovered that the Crystal Crown of the Kings of Averidan could not only speak to him—it could kill him, if it decided he shouldn’t be king. And then were certain other inheritances from the late king: a war about which he knew nothing, and a royal bride-to-be with whom he could not speak. No wonder Liras decided to make a run for it.

Meet the Author

Brenda W. Clough does far too many things, including journalism, cooking and the fiber arts. Her books include The Crystal Crown, The Dragon of Mishbil, The Realm Beneath, The Name of the Sun, How Like a God, Doors of Life and Death, and a children’s novel, Impossumable Summer. Recent e-books inclide Revise the World and Speak To Our Desires. She has been a finalist for both the Hugo and the Nebula awards. Locus Magazine said of her work, “Clough brings myth and science and plain human existence (complex as all get-out) together for what proves to be a fine blend, and a very good read, offering physical, psychological, and metaphysical insights into the human condition, along with the sometimes delightfully outlandish action that drives the best of pulp fiction.” The New York Times Book Review says, “Ms. Clough has an appealingly cheeky imagination.”

I read this book in the 1984 DAW edition with B.W. Clough as the author. I did not know the author was female until I saw this e-edition. Looking forward to reading it again. This is a fast read that is inventive and entertaining. No sequels or related books that I know of.
