Love, magic, and a circus!
Even the youngest child in the United Lands knew the legend of the Raven Coronet -- the crown of charisma that had united the world under one ruler -- but no one believed it still existed.
Or almost no one.
Young Thaedra's difficult childhood becomes an even more trying womanhood when her stepfather marries her off as part of a scheme to obtain the storied artifact.
But some fairy tales are best forgotten...

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This first work by Christina Briley is a nice take on some classic themes - quest for a lost treasure, the traveling circus, the female fighter - with some unexpected twists. Thaedra is a well-realized protagonist that we care about, and the writing is well done. The raven coronet doesn't give POWER directly, but rather extreme charisma - a nice variation, and leads to a surprising conclusion - read the book to find out what.
