Lightning, espionage, and magic—Inselgrau's fate lies in the hands of one thunder goddess with a heart of iron, one exiled spy, and one Magician haunted by chronic pain.
Under the tutelage of the Fantazikes, Evelyn Stormbourne's dominion over the skies has become formidable. When she receives word from her spymaster that an old and powerful enemy has taken her throne by lethal force, she sets off on a cross-country trek to return to Inselgrau. If she wants her country back, she'll have to free her greatest nemesis from an ancient Magical prison and offer him as ransom for the release of Inselgrau.
Relying on old friends, new allies, and her own otherworldly abilities, Evie must use her wits, cunning, and power if she's going to defeat the greatest enemies she's ever faced, and to prove herself worthy to wear the Crown of Thunder.
Evolved Publishing presents the third book in the "Stormbourne Chronicles" series of young adult fantasies, where you'll discover an extraordinary new world, epic adventure, and memorable characters. [DRM-Free]

Some of Karissa’s favorite things are coffee, chocolate, and superheroes, and she can quote Princess Bride verbatim. She loves to read and has a sweet tooth for speculative fiction. Sometimes her family convinces her to put down the books and take the motorcycles out for a spin, or they’ll haunt flea markets, searching for rusty scraps to reuse and re-purpose. Karissa lives in North Carolina with her kid, her husband, the occasional in-law, and a very hairy husky named Bonnie.
Karissa is also the author of the adult Urban Fantasy series, The Norse Chronicles, where she puts a modern twist on ancient myths. The first book, Midnight Burning is available now. Her first effort with Evolved Publishing will be the Stormbourne Chronicles, a Young Adult Fantasy series.

What an Epic finale to this fascinating Epic Series !! Karissa Laurel has pulled every single thread from throughout the series together and made these characters dance to her tune. Crown of thunder continues seamlessly from the end of Quest of Thunder, once again showcasing this authors exceptional & original creativity. It’s like a smorgasbord of fantasy as everyone who has played a part of Evie’s journey back home, plays some part in this final book Of The “Stormbourne Chronicles”. Lushly imagined and powerfully characterised, it’s a potent page-turner. Set against a backdrop of magical & political intrigue this simmering journey is about to have its inevitable explosive ending. This is a carefully constructed narrative of Uncertain loyalties, friendships, betrayal, secrets & a searing love. This book and the whole series weaves a world that is so lush with detail, you will want to hear, taste & touch everything. You will weep when touched by the emotional strains Evie & her friends endure & tighten your butt cheeks with tension when times get desperate & dangerous. This is no pampered immature princess fighting to regain her kingdom & crown. Evie died & became a warrior, a realist, a risk taker, her humility know’s no bounds, she will protect her friends above everyone & everything else. Evie spent months mastering her family’s hereditary control of the storms, growing stronger in body & soul, preparing herself for the battle of her life. She returns to her kingdom as a Woman. Worthy to be Queen. This is a story like no other I have ever read. I don’t leave spoilers so I hope I have left enough description to encourage you to pick this series up and be transported to a world that makes your reality slip into the background, and a storyline that if you allow, will forever be engraved into your mind
