A final quest. A people divided. Can one cyren turn the tides of fate?
The time has come to obtain the final birthstone of Saddoriel. Reeling from a near-deadly sacrifice, Roh must rally all her strength if she is to take her place upon the throne.
But with cyrenkind divided and enemies closing in, the road to Lochloria and beyond is more dangerous than ever. An ancient prophecy looms, loyalties are tested and Roh races against the clock that threatens to undo all she’s fought for.
As a centuries-long conflict comes to a head and forces of nature collide, Roh has to decide if there is more than one kind of magic in this world, and whether or not she has the power to harness it.
Some bonds will solidify, while others will be fractured forever – but all must take up their swords and face the final battle for a better Saddoriel.
Will Roh emerge from the perils victorious, or will the trials claim her at last?
Bursting with Scheuerer’s trademark action and a dash of fiery romance, the Curse of the Cyren Queen series reaches its epic conclusion with To Wield a Crown.
To Wield A Crown is the fourth and final book in the Curse of the Cyren Queen series by Helen Scheuerer. This series is pure perfection. It has cemented itself as one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. This is a series that needs to be read in order, and now is the perfect time since all four books are out now. Trust me, once you start reading these hidden magical gems, you will not want to stop.
Helen has crafted a magical world that I could not get enough of.
Roh and her gang of friends are in pretty dire circumstances at the start of this book because of the devastating events of book 3. Roh has a nearly impossible task in front of her to try and retrieve the last of the crown gems and take her place of Cyren Queen. A lot is packed into this book, and I will admit that parts of this book completely gutted me. I cried multiple times, and I am not a crier with books typically. I can count the number of books that have made me cry on both hands, and this one has me in tears multiple times. I grew so attached to these characters and their friendship and I was not ready to say goodbye to them.
One of my favorite characters in To Wield a Crown is Valli- Roh’s pet Sea Drake. He is just about the cutest scary creature in all the realms. Fans of quest based fantasy stories featuring a deadly competition, found family, great characters, huge betrayals/secrets and magnificent writing need to check out this series. Helen Scheuerer is one of my favorite authors and she writes can’t miss stories. If you haven’t read her books, you are really missing out!
P.S. There is a sliver of an opening for another book in this world based on the ending of this book and I am holding on to hope! I want more!
