Series: A Trial of Sorcerers #3

A Royal Tournament. Thrilling Magic. Deadly Mysteries. Slow-Burn Romance.

Last night, Eira killed a man.

However justified her actions were, many now regard her as a cold-blooded murderer and a heretic who extinguished their hope. But there’s no time to explain herself. She barely has a chance to wash the blood off her hands before the Tournament of Five Kingdoms begins.

Sequestered with the other champions for the duration of the tournament, Eira must now navigate the games, her competition, the enemies who hunt her head, and — somehow worse than all the rest — being stuck in close quarters with the man who broke her heart.

All is fair in love and magical tournaments, and Eira is ready for the fight of her life.

Get ready for twists you never saw coming in A Tournament of Crowns. This series is perfect for readers who enjoy young adult, epic fantasy full of elemental magic, slow-burn romance, found family, and battles for the futures of kingdoms set in a world you’ll never want to leave.

Don’t miss a single book in the A Trial of Sorcerers series. Readers should start with A Trial of Sorcerers, and then A Hunt of Shadows, before reading A Tournament of Crowns.

Also in this series: A Trial of Sorcerers


My Thoughts

Please Note: this is a series that should be read in order- though my review does not have any specific spoilers for the series, if you would like to check out my thoughts of book one you can find my review HERE

A Tournament of Crowns is the third book in the A Trial of Sorcerers series by Elise Kova. This book takes place right after the events of the second book, which means this is a series you need to read in order. I love this series so much. In fact, I think a Trial of Sorcerers is my favorite series I have read of Elise’s. This world feels so magical and I love how different each of the regions and its’ inhabitants are.

Here we find ourselves deeply embroiled in the Tournament of the Five Kingdoms. I loved this because it helped us to expand the world even further. We got to learn about each of the different kingdoms and their own unique cultures and magic systems. I found myself really feeling for Eira in this installment. The poor girl has so much on her plate, and I was feeling overwhelmed for her. I think this might have been my favorite book so farin the series because we not only get to dive back into the competition element of the story but we also have several additional layers of conflict and complex characters woven throughout. I really loved it.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, especially that crazy ending. I need the next book in my hands right now. If you are a fan of magical competitions featuring complex characters, great friendships, a slow burn romance and plenty of betrayals, then look no further than this series. It is excellent.


I will have a giveaway to win a copy of this book up on my instagram next week so stay tuned!
