The Crown Princess' Voyage Paperback – March 31, 2017
|New from||Used from|
"Even if an enemy is defeated, can those governing the kingdom ever rest easily or be truly happy? The forces that cause major protagonists to grow as individuals as they face paradigm-changing choices makes for a riveting, action-packed story whose progress is livelier than its predecessor, which set the foundation for a powerful story of invaders, patriots, and the clash between improbable forces and sorcery.
Fantasy fans who relish social and political insights against the backdrop of confrontation and intrigue will find The Crown Princess' Voyage continues to hold tightly to and rests firmly upon its unique blend of attention to detail, complex character interactions, and a dialogue that keeps everything on track, making it a highly recommended pick for those seeking more than light fantasy reading." - Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"The joy of this book is that we've got two strong female leads. More often than not it is the men who shine in tales like this. While both Chandra and Alathea have men that they confide in, trust in, it is clear that these two women are the ones who call the shots. Alathea especially. Her youth was twisted and taken from her in the most dramatic of ways, yet she used this to her advantage and pressed forward with her goals." - The Hungry Monster Book Review
From the Back Cover
"Who or what anchored her to that palace?"
Chandra Kenderley is the crown princess of the world's mightiest empire. She has successfully foiled two conspirators, each with different visions of what her empire should be. In the truest testament to her power, Derek, her greatest and most dangerous enemy, has become a loyal personal guard. Sorcery may be nothing more than a people's superstition with little basis in fact, but in the face of such feats their beliefs only grow stronger.
Peace in Kensrik will be short-lived. The people still demand more drastic changes to the way they are governed, and even a prime minister sympathetic to Chandra's plight can't do better than suggest that Chandra flee for her own safety. How wonderfully convenient that an invitation should arrive from a land not even marked on the world maps of the day, suggesting one place where Chandra might be not only welcome but respected.
That's what the sender is counting on; the same puppet master who hoped that Lords Merton and Belheff would get the job done. Alathea has plans to reshape the entire world, and they encompass a dangerous obsession with Derek and Chandra. She knows Chandra must accept that invitation. She knows Chandra will have nowhere else to go, and she expects poor bewitched Derek to follow Chandra until Alathea can save him from humiliating servitude...
The Crown Princess' Voyage is the second book of the Gift-Knight trilogy.

‘Then fear enough for both of us, because I don’t.’”
– The Crown Princess’ Voyage by Dylan Madeley
(I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.)
Crown Princess Chandra Kenderley is a powerful sorceress, a liar and a betrayer who allegedly stole leadership from her royal father by murdering him in cold blood. At least, that’s what she’s being falsely accused of by the citizens of Kensrik. With the recent attack and growing suspicions, will the repercussions destroy the kingdom’s already fragile peace? Accompanied by her Gift-Knight, the Princess sets out on a perilous journey to seek out the truth behind what truly happened that forcefully ascended her upon the throne. Her extraordinary fate and that of an evil goddess will collide in this ancient and epic adventure.
The Crown Princess’ Voyage is the second book in Dylan Madeley’s trilogy. With great anticipation, I couldn’t wait to dive right into this unique world. The writing-style and the development of the story really drew me in. The story was rich and action-packed. The idea of a crescent-shaped continent surrounded by an ocean filled with monsters had my attention right away and so I wanted to know more about this world from the get-go. The writing was stunning in the way that everything seemed very real and I couldn’t help finding myself immersed into the story and along for the ride, side by side with our characters.
I definitely recommend this series if you’re a big fan of Game of Thrones and are looking for a similarly entertaining and gritty fantasy.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 rating!
