In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret…
For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken. Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems. When Ivy’s magic––and her life––is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.

This novel was a fun read – but I wasn’t it’s biggest fan. The start to it was kind of slow and I’m sad to say that I just wasn’t able to get into it like I wanted to.
This novel did have some fun aspects to it – which included the adventures that took place in the school, which were very reminiscent of Harry Potter and all the adventures from that universe!
When Ivy is thrust into this world filled with magic and princesses I felt the book pick up and it was a lot of fun! Seeing all of the adventures of Ivy and Fyn was a delight and it this novel really felt like a huge magical journey to me. Also, watching Ivy getting into more and more trouble throughout the novel really added to my entertainment.
This novel really embodies the idea of a fun and easy middle grade. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for an adventure to follow that isn’t set in a world that has a lot of things to it that you need to pay attention to (high fantasy). This is also a great gift for your younger sibling – that’s not to say that you can’t read it if you’re older!
I’m sad that I wasn’t able to get right into the novel – but I’m not upset I read it. I am planning on picking it up again when I have a bit more time to just relax and enjoy the adventure, but for now I will leave it with a solid 3 stars out of 5!
That concludes my review for The Crowns of Croswald by D.E. Night!
