The Crowns of Croswald is a young adult novel that takes the reader into the world of Ivy Lovely, a young girl whose hidden magical powers are revealed to her after her sixteenth birthday. The book begins with details about the fantastical world that Ivy lives in, and the struggles she has in her life, and then introduces the mystery that will then be revealed throughout the rest of the story.

D.E. Night creates a complicated character in young Ivy, whose world is full of intriguing characters and unforeseen events. Throughout the story, the author creates a narrative that pushes readers to infer the meaning of different terms, such as sqwinch and scrivenist, throughout the story, creating a stimulating experience requiring attention and imagination. Additionally, beautiful imagery used throughout creates a vivid picture of the fantastical world in which the characters live:

“The moon, though gorgeous, was only a shadow of what the Moonsday holiday celebrated: a strange double moon (twice as large, twice as shimmery) that used to occur once a year.”

The author’s writing style has depth and the book’s plot becomes intertwined with the descriptions and characters around it. Ultimately, readers of The Crowns of Croswald will find fulfillment as this very detailed story weaves together satisfying events with a comprehensive backdrop.

This book is recommended for young teen readers who enjoy darker and more challenging books that have rich storytelling and a significant amount of characters and plots. Readers that enjoy intricate tales in a fantasy world will revel in this original story that can surprise and delight until the very end.
