Twilight Sparkle and The Crystal Heart by G.M. Berrow

This review is for the older fans of MLP:FIM who are curious about what this book has to offer. A little bit about me I'm a college student studying electrical engineering and I'm a 21 year old guy who has a distinct love for slice of life cartoons. I love this show more than you could imagine, so if you got any questions that my review doesn't answer feel free to comment. Don't be shy fellow pegasisters and bronies, : ).

What you really want to know (for those who want to go straight to the point):

Anyway, I received this book in the mail today, and after about 4 hours of reading and digesting the material, I can safely say that our beloved Twilight Sparkle is still her very same "adorkable" self. She is still very studious, stubborn, and very modest when it comes to her achievements. So we can all rest easy in the personality department, she hasn't changed one bit. As for her relationship with the mane 6, the only difference is of course she is royalty now, but other than the occasional Princess calling they are still the down to earth friends we all fell in love with. Also we get some background on Princess Cadance! (*squee*)

Do not read the bottom part if you don't want to be spoiled.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brief Synopsis: [Spoilers inbound]. I will put my personal thoughts in (personal thoughts)

The book starts off where the ending episode of Season 3 left us, exactly the day after the coronation of Twilight Sparkle and her transformation into "Alicornhood". Our pony girl, Twilight Sparkle is having some trouble on how to handle her transition into royalty.

This book is a cute, easy chapter book for Bronies and Pegasisters of all ages.
The writing, while aimed at younger fans of the show, also offers puns and references for older fans as well (Including some fairly clever Princess Bride jokes). But what I enjoyed most about the story, even more than the advancing of the plot (as we will likely have to wait until 2014 for the next season), is how well the writer captured each unique voice in a believable way; sometimes tie-in books like these can seem like odd forms of fan-fiction, with the characters acting in ways that fans would recognize as unlikely. Everyone, from Twilight Sparkle and Spike to Trixie and Glinda, spoke and acted in ways that were perfectly calibrated to the Canon.
If you are a Brony/Pegasister, you will not be disappointed; if you are a parent of a child who likes the series, they will not be disappointed, and you may get some enjoyment out of it as well. If you don't like ponies abd are here to troll, take that energy and do sonethibg productive, okay? But if you're going to read it anyway, it is worth it, not just as a story to hold us over til next season, but as an excellent study in capturing voice in children's literature. I loved it, and I'm not ashamed to say so. Brohoof.

When I first watched Magical Mystery Cure, its ending almost reminded me of the ending of Mass Effect 3: Went by too fast, and created more questions than actual answers. BioWare, the creators of the Mass Effect trilogy, had to address the fans' issues by creating an Extended Cut ending to Mass Effect 3, which didn't change the ending but rather provided greater clarity to the original ending. Likewise, this book might be considered the Extended Cut to My Little Pony's Season Three finale, as it provides more clarity to Twilight's new life as an alicorn princess, while telling a great story that kids and bronies alike will enjoy.

My favorite thing about the story was how Twilight actually chose to stay behind in Ponyville to be close to her friends. And, even as an alicorn princess, she is not all powerful, not just because head-writer of the show Meghan McCarthy confirmed that Twilight will not outlive her friends, but also that in the story, Twilight learned that she still had to depend on her friends like she always does, only this time on political decisions. We're also given an origin story to Princess Cadence and how she became an alicorn princess herself, as well as two brony-favorites making cameo appearances in the story, Gilda the Griffon and Trixie.

The book is around one-hundred thirty pages, which can be very brief. However, it'll be worth the brevity due to its story of Twilight adjusting to her new role as leader. I'd recommend this to any child who loves MLP, as well as bronies who await Season Four of the show. Overall, this was the Extended Cut the show needed after the Season Three finale, providing clarity to Twilight's new life while telling a great story with a satisfying moral.

My 5 yr old loves the show and was just learning to read when we got this book. Any chapter book that she WANTS to read together is awesome. We even pre ordered the second book (pinkie pie) and are reading it now. I plan to get the whole collection for her. By the way, she got pinkie pie for her 6th b-day and is still enjoying it.
