"Honoring someone is more binding than dishonoring them" "Evil runs in every race. So does good." "Who was I to save my kingdom when I can't save myself?" "The reflection of the water made his pale eyes flicker like they held an ocean of their own within." Short Review: Mind Blown! This is the FINALE I NEEDED!! Fresh, Unpredictable and Magical. Beautiful Fairytale that takes you on journey you won't forget! - Sana Q. Plot : The plot was fresh and took too many unpredictable rides. I had to pause, to take it all in. The way the Author has spun this tale and did not let any loose threads lay hanging. She took us on a journey with all 3 characters that we met in the previous books. Not only did she give them a great purpose and ending. But took their stakes to a whole other level! Characters ; were real and human, even though most of them weren't (no offence to the jinn or dragons :P). The struggles of Arie was heart felt and I could feel her pain, trauma and pretense of acting strong. Rena's character Arc in the beginning from a 'fish out of the ocean' (not metaphorically) to becoming the bridge between the Human and The Mere was empowering to read. Nesrin’s journey on discovery her identity was inspiring. She’s the strongest badass heroin that I enjoyed reading. The scene setting World Building was truly unimaginable. I really do wonder how the Author is able to create such vast universe and also deliver the experience without disappointment. Favorite Scene My favorite scene was the underwater darkness in which Rena gets trapped. And Of course the Epic Climax kept me on my toes till the very end! Ending was well deserved. I mean she gave us what we wanted and even better. Such a beautiful way to tie it all in a huge bow and leave the readers smiling. After closing the book, I was still lost in its magic. Things I did not like or should’ve been better- I wish there was an actual sleeping beauty factor involved. Such as the jinni princess actually being locked up in a castle - only to be awaken by a spell. I almost half expected this to happen in the end and was waiting for it. So that’s where I felt it lacked, as an actual sleeping beauty character would’ve made it more interesting. On the other hand, I wish Gidean and Arie’s Mother had more of a role to play. I badly wanted a backstory! I guess there's a short story of Gidean which covers that. I'm gonna read it next! Take Aways: The theme in this book is even broader than we had imagined. It talks about racism and diversity that we humans tend to differentiate. There is one dialogue which describes this perfectly. Contributing to how we all are same even though we create differences and spread hate. Rating : 4/5 Should you read it? If you’re into epic fantasy and love escaping into a world of magical beings. This one’s for you! Follow my Book Club on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/sanaaminqur...

    Each book of The Stolen Kingdom series has gotten better and The Enchanted Crown doesn’t disappoint.

With the job to connect all of the other heroines and plot lines together and make for a satisfying ending, it had a lot to do, and it did it beautifully with a gripping story with twists and turns that both stands on its own and concludes the four book saga. This book has the PoVs of all three of the protagonists of the previous books, as well as Kadin, Arie’s love interest. They deal with the events of the previous books and have to deal with new problems at the same time, all related to the upcoming Jinni Crowning Ceremony. Arie has to deal with grief in several forms after what happened at the end of The Jinni Key, and I love how realistic and respectful her relationship with grief and depression is, that it’s going to be hard, and you don’t have to go through it alone. She goes through a lot and I felt for her throughout. Kadin has to deal with his future as well as reconsidering some old thoughts, as well as trying to support Arie. Rena I felt was the most improved character, as we see the growth she’s had since The Jinni Key and she steps things up in a huge way and was a fun and light character. Nersin has her strong willed personality, but at the same time, unsure of her future, and I like how she explores her option, as well as the relationships she’s formed since The Cursed Hunter. Each PoV had their own unique voice and I rarely got confused who’s PoV we were in. The characters feel real and are all fleshed out and each have their development capped off here. I love the villain as well and was fairly developed despite not having that much page time. Despite being the longest book in the series, the plot moves at a fast pace and there’s a twist or turn at every corner and those end of chapter cliffhangers had me reading “one more chapter” until I was so tired I couldn’t read anymore. Even though there was one twist I saw coming, I really liked how it impacted the rest of the story. Plus, the story all connected by the end with a great ending, which is a plus when you have three locales to deal with. Though I sorta wished Nesrin and Rena got a little bit more closure. The world building is unique and vivid, with easy to read prose that had quite a few nuggets of the facts of life, I was feeling all the emotions! If you’re looking for a series of retellings with a breath of fresh air, a middle eastern inspired setting and intriguing characters and a fast paced plot, check out this series and I’m looking forward to more from Bethany Atazadeh! 9/10

    The best book in the series! Atazadeh has really come into her own on this, the final instalment of The Stolen Kingdom series. She manages to juggle the cast of characters well in order to tie up all the threads left dangling in the storylines from the previous three books. Although I wasn't super fond of Rena in The Jinni Key, I found her no-nonsense approach to life refreshing in TEC. I loved the moments between Malakai and Nesrin, and, of course, Kadin and Arie will always be close to my heart. The best book in the series!

I loved the moments between Malakai and Nesrin, and, of course, Kadin and Arie will always be close to my heart. While the plot of this book was all the good things, that wasn't actually what impressed me the most about this book. It was Atazadeh's thoughtful discussion of grief and loss. At the end of The Jinni Key, Arie is severed from her gift. This leads her to fall into depression. She has lost her identity, her feelings of self-worth, her strength to get out of bed in the morning. As someone who has suffered from both grief and depression, I really related to her thoughtful portrayal of these complex emotions. Sometimes, there is no easy fix. You can't just 'get over it.' Sometimes you need to just let yourself feel the grief. But you don't have to do it alone. Kadin and Rena walk with Arie in her grief. They sit with her in the darkness and, simply by being there, shine a light. Kadin tells Arie to choose hope. Not once, but every day, every hour, every minute. It's a powerful message from a powerful book.

    Bethany Atazadeh has done it again. The Stolen Kingdom series is a serious, cannot put down page turner that you would expect from any seasoned YA writer, and The Enchanted Crown is no exception. The book is centered around Queen Arie’s resilience after the own loss of her gift after her severance, and it is a beckoning for us all to take time to grieve, heal, and ultimately move forward even though we may be changed.

Of course there are many other beloved characters and worlds from the previous books, and effortless shifting between and interweaving of them leaves plenty of cliffhangers that entice you to keep reading. I did my best to guess along the way, but I couldn’t come up with as thoughtful of a journey and as beautiful an ending as Atazadeh did. To wrap up such a complex series in such a perfect way is truly a gift. Bethany Atazadeh is a rising star in the YA genre, and I can’t wait to read her next!

    5/5 stars!!! The Enchanted Crown is the best finale to a series I've read. Ever. I loved how all the stories tied back into one, and I adore the way the novel finished. The characters are incredible; they feel so real and life-like. It was nice to have multiple points of view, and I didn't find it confusing at all. The pacing was great! I was hooked from the start and could not put this book down. The worldbuilding was so immersive! It was not info-dumpy at all, and I love how we got to see even 5/5 stars!!!

The plot was excellent and the plot twist was epic. But I loved all the little clues we got. I kept guessing throughout the story! Overall, I highly recommend The Stolen Kingdom Series as a whole. If you haven't read the first three, go read them now! I can assure you, they're just as good as The Enchanted Crown. I'm so sad this series is over (I legit cried at the end), but I'm happy we got this perfect ending. A Happily Ever After for sure!

    The Enchanted Crown is the fourth and final book in The Stolen Kingdom series by Bethany Atazadeh. This is an excellent book for fans of any other book in the series. As a fan of The Stolen Kingdom and The Jinni Key, I was happy to catch up with Arie and Rena for one last adventure. I was less impressed with The Cursed Hunter, but Nesrin was not featured enough to detract from my interest in this conclusion.

This is an excellent book for fans of any other book in the series. As a fan of The Stolen Kingdom and The Jinni Key, I was happy to catch up with Arie and Rena for one last adventure. I was less impressed with The Cursed Hunter, but Nesrin was not featured enough to detract from my interest in this conclusion. The Enchanted Crown contains chapters from the perspectives of all three protagonists and several love interests, which keeps the story moving at a quick pace. The variety of perspectives creates a unique reading format since the story itself is a pretty traditional "final battle" narrative. I recently noticed that the subtitle for this book claims that it is a "Sleeping Beauty" retelling. That claim is a bit of a stretch, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the novel itself. The Enchanted Crown is the exciting climax of The Stolen Kingdom, The Jinni Key, and The Cursed Hunter. It picks up where all three of these books leave off and takes the three princesses on a quest to stop the wicked Jinni Queen from conquering the worlds of humans and Mere. Princess Arie has become Queen of Hodafez and must team up with her companions to stop the most powerful being in the realms. How and why the heroines defeat the Jinni Queen is less interesting than the antics they get up to along the way. All three princesses are tested to their limits when they are stripped of their special abilities. Prior to this book, Arie was forced to have a "severance," a dangerous procedure that removes powers from anyone blessed with a Jinni gift and usually results in death or suicide. With the way the severity of the procedure was stressed in The Stolen Kingdom, I expected Arie to be in a much worse state than she was. Rena, the "Little Mermaid" character from this series, has her necklace of spells forcefully taken from her and is thrust into the middle of the ocean without her tail. Nesrin from The Cursed Hunter must face her feelings for Malakai that she adamantly denied in her own book. Arie's plan to reach the Jinni Queen is a little crazy, but that's also what makes it so interesting. Using Rena's magical relic, the group of renegade royals set a trap to catch any Jinn in the area and attempt to negotiate with them to overthrow their queen. The plan goes as well as you would expect a forced alliance initiated by a trap to go. Some Jinn betray the group, some deceive them, and others agree to help them. Included among the numerous Jinn who fall into the trap are Gideon, Arie and Rena's reluctant ally from the first two books, and Malakai, the cursed prince from the third book. The team thinks they have a surefire victory when they capture the prince, but just wants to get back to Nesrin, which would have been touching if they weren't the weakest love story in the series. Fortunately, the story focuses on the other couples as well. Kadin plays a vital role in helping Arie deal with the traumatic loss of her powers while simultaneously trying to stage a coup, and Rena continues to learn about the nuances of love as she navigates her newfound romance. In spite of her elaborate plan to team up with the rest of the Jinn, Arie must face the Jinni Queen on her own in the end. By doing so, she discovers the answers to all of the questions she had about her past in the first book and learns to love and understand herself better in the process. Though it features other characters and side stories, this is ultimately Arie's book and provides a satisfying conclusion to the open ending that was left in The Stolen Kingdom. Rena is my favorite character in the series, but Arie has the most growth and achievements by far in this conclusion. She proves herself to be a worthy queen, moves beyond her shortcomings over her relationship with Kadin, and finally learns the truth about her past. All three princesses are tested in their own way, but Arie comes out as the biggest winner of all, which made the climax my favorite part of the book. The Enchanted Crown is a must-read for fans of any of the other three books in this series. It provides a satisfying conclusion for all three princesses, especially Arie, and builds upon the unique lore that Bethany Atazadeh created with her world of humans, Jinn, and Meremaids. Arie and Rena's bizarre attempt to capture Jinn and force them to negotiate is a unique tactic that is just as entertaining as it is reckless. The shifting perspectives in each chapter keep the story interesting even when where there is not a lot happening. Fans of the first book will be especially satisfied with the resolution to Arie's story. Personally, I was happy just spending more time with Rena, one of my favorite little mermaids. Since I read an advance copy of this book, be sure to keep an eye on the Amazon page for its official release on March 23rd.

    Wow. Just...wow!! I have no words for this epic finale. It was everything I wanted and this series needed. The Enchanted Crown explored the truth and ugliness of grief, that it's okay to grieve and not feel up to doing anything, but also that there is hope and light, it might just take a while to find it. As usual, I loved all of the characters and felt like they were fleshed out good. Arie felt so real, and her chapters were hard to read at times because they were so raw. You don't find many boo Wow.

You don't find many books that are willing to go there with grief. Kadin is so sweet and ahh I love him!! I hated seeing his hurt as he backed away from Ari, believing she needed that to heal. Rena was fun and I liked how she just says things how they are and doesn't beat around the bush. I really, really, REALLY liked how Bethany brought them all together, like Nesrin and Malakai from The Cursed Hunter. The way they were introduced and thrust into the middle of the rebellion was great! And Nesrin is just a really cool person! I could go on about all of the amazing characters–new and old–but that'd take way too long, so I'll leave it here. XD The plot was so stinking good!! It kept me turning the pages and I loved all of the plot twists. I thought the way they went about gathering their numbers was really cool, and that twist with Arie!! Dang! So much happens in this book, guys! The one and only complaint I have is that this didn't really have Sleeping Beauty elements. It technically has some, but they're very subtle and layered in. Something I really appreciate is that this series is very clean! There are a couple mild cuss words, but besides that it's good. The romance isn't very detailed, and I wish there was a little more there, but I'm glad she kept it clean. Guys I could find so much to talk about with this beautiful book and series, so how about you just go read it? I promise it will NOT disappoint!!

(( No spoilers here)) many retellings are dark and twisted and while this one certainly has its action points it’s able to stay mostly light hearted which is exactly what I needed to balance out… Life. Without spoiling all I can really say is read it yourself I think you will enjoy it if you are into retellings and need something that will most certainly make you smile but also grab your attention so much that you don’t want to put it down especially for those last several chapters this is the book for you.

I was really happy that we got this great finale for Arie that we didn't really get in book 1. It was left very open-ended leading up to the moments in book 4, so I was very satisfied with getting that for Arie since I fell in love her character in book 1. We also get to see some other favorite characters from the first three books take part in book 4 as well. All in all, The Enchanted Crown is a fantastic conclusion to this series and I look forward to this authors next projects.

    It was such a beautiful ending for this quadrology! The deepest in the series, with colourful characters and insight to their inner world. Suspenful, full of adventure, love, joy and all the emotions humans have. The only thing that I miss is a longer more detailed ending with a rounded closure, but besides that for me this book is perfect. Bethany did an amazing job once more, she truly is one the brightest uprising star of our generation. Her writing is deep and immersive!

    I read the first chapter but then had to stop, because I knew I was going to read it all in one sitting like the first three in the series. I just didn't have time for it. Today I cleared my schedule, and read this book in one sitting. Just like I knew I would. It's just that good! I'm going to miss Arie, Rena, and Nesrin. They were some of the best characters to follow in a book series.

    Long and satisfying, The Enchanted Crown wraps everything from the previous three books up nicely. We get to see all of the characters we've loved reach the ends of their character arcs, and there are surprises along the way for good measure. This was a fast read, and I particularly enjoyed the continuation of Nesrin and Malakai's story. I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to this world yet!

    Thank to the author for giving me an ARC to read. I have loved this series since I first read The Stolen Kingdom. It's been a good series with each book being a retelling of different fairy tales. This last one was the exception. I had thought it might be a sleeping beauty retelling but it isn't. I still loved it and enjoyed it. We get to see all 3 main female characters POV as well as two of the main male POV. It was a lot of different POV and that threw me off a few times trying to keep track o Thank to the author for giving me an ARC to read. I have loved this series since I first read The Stolen Kingdom. It's been a good series with each book being a retelling of different fairy tales. This last one was the exception. I had thought it might be a sleeping beauty retelling but it isn't. I still loved it and enjoyed it. We get to see all 3 main female characters POV as well as two of the main male POV. It was a lot of different POV and that threw me off a few times trying to keep track of which person I was reading for. Besides that it was excellent. We see character development for Arie, who was feeling lost at the beginning of this book. I don't' want to give any spoilers so I'll keep this quick. If you liked the earlier books in the series you'll be happy with how everything is wrapped up. Though if you are like me, you'll be wishing you got a little more of the happily ever after for everyone.

    I’m not sure I would call this a Sleeping Beauty retelling, but it is fantastic! I love all the characters we meet in the first three books and The Enchanted Crown is an epic conclusion. I also love how well Arie’s depression is portrayed. She has conflicting voices in her head: the depression telling her to give up, and the love of her friends reminding her she is strong. I don’t think it’s often that depression is explored in a fantasy/fairytale story and I love it!

I wish there was more, and I definitely wish we got more about Nesrin at the end as she learns about her secret history (which is mentioned in the previous book).

    Love it but... There could've been more to story. I felt that the ending was a bit rushed as I had questions about certain characters. Nesrin and Malakai were definitely my favorites and I felt that at least on more chapter could've been written to tie up their story. What happens to get people. The same with Rena and even Gideon. Still, a great story. Love it but... There could've been more to story. I felt that the ending was a bit rushed as I had questions about certain characters.

    This book was so amazing! I stayed up too late reading it because I couldn't put it down. Through out the book the characters find their strength and in turn, reminded me of my own strength. Thank you Bethany for this fantastic book! This book was so amazing! I stayed up too late reading it because I couldn't put it down.

    Like all the other books in this series, I was constantly wanting to read more and find out what happened. The characters were easy to love and the bit of romance was fun to read. An excellent conclusion to a wonderful series!

    Ahhhh. I hope this isn’t the final book in this world. I love these characters so much & need to know more about certain aspects. Bethany did so well with everyone’s POV & stories. The twists at the end!!! I loved this series & Bethany’s writing. Can’t wait to read more from her.

    Disclaimer: I received an ARC from Bethany in exchange for an honest review. (Prepare yourself for the exciting babbling that is my honest review.) Oh my word, this book is amazing. The perfect ending to this series. I love it to death. Do I want more? Of course, but I also got a nice, wrapped-up, resolved ending. Just *chef’s kiss* it’s emotionally resonant and beautifully crafted. There were so many points throughout the story where I went, “Oh, shoot. That’s me.” (No seriously I said that out Disclaimer: I received an ARC from Bethany in exchange for an honest review. (Prepare yourself for the exciting babbling that is my honest review.)

Speaking of the characters they are all amazing. I love them all and was not dissatisfied with the endings of any of their arcs. Bethany really outdid herself and I couldn’t have asked for a better ending.

    I adore this book! It’s the last one in the Stolen Kingdom series and each book was better then the last. It was all ties together nicely. Highly recommend!
