About the Author

Dee Harrison was brought up in Nottingham, England, on the tales of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest. From that came an abiding love for all things Medieval so she went on to read History at Nottingham University. The myths and legends of the period fascinated her and she decided to create her own. Thus was the Firelord's Legacy born. Dee's latest series, Mirrorsmith, a taste of which can be found in Fusion, is quite different, however. She is not a fan of spiders so she made them the villains. Dee has also had articles and essays on Medieval History published in journals.

The author's command of epic fantasy writing is astounding. Rich, descriptive language of scenes and characters, and in-depth usage of medieval terms largely ancient to us but vital in a fantasy novel. The grammar and style is nearly perfect.

My take on this book was that it seemed to lack a narrative at the beginning and does not set out what the end goal is. This is important for me as a reader. Also, it seemed that the descriptions, while well done, were excessive, and nearly every action, scene, or character was described in depth. After a while, it becomes tiring.

If the author could trim this book to focus more on pacing and action, and less on the description, this might be a top-notch novel for me.

The Firelord’s Crown is stunning, high fantasy. I picked up this novel after reading the pitch and the first chapter, expecting something enthralling, but the scope of Harrison’s world building and the involvement I felt with her characters was beyond expectations. We begin in a kingdom frozen in the tundra, with a prince who is about to quickly, forcedly come of age. He is surrounded by a loyal kinsman, Rolo, a magelike man, Airen, and a destiny shrouded in secrets.

With a taste of both old and new, Harrison’s work reminds me of my days in Robin Hood’s Nottingham and also strikes me with a reminder of Kristen Britain’s ‘First Rider’ series. There is also an epic feel to The Firelord’s Crown, as if out of Tolkien’s mind, and yet I enjoyed The Firelord’s Crown more.

The entire work was stunning, but by far my favorite part was the final scene. Harrison does suspense extremely well.

After writing this review I’m immediately picking up my Kindle to begin the next in the series, Firelord’s Heir. Thank goodness I don’t have to wait.

If you are a fan of sword-and-sorcery novels then I'd recommend "The Firelord's Crown" because it's got plenty of both to go along with some pretty interesting characters and some very interesting places.
Dee Harrison's novel, the first in what's meant to be a series, drops us into a dangerous world in the middle of a rebellion aimed at unseating the current rulers of a land caught in the grip of a harsh winter. It is chock full of battles, miraculous escapes from danger and there is a burgeoning love story woven nicely into its pages. It is a novel that examines in great detail the meaning of friendship and loyalty as its main characters attempt to escape from the clutches of those attempting to usurp the crown. Harrison also closely examines the trappings of power and their impact on a young prince who was never meant to rule because he was a second son. How he reacts to the fact that he may now have to rule a kingdom, assuming he lives through the rebellion, leads to some very intriguing passages in this book.
She doesn't stop there, however, for she also examines the root causes that would lead a man to betray his honor and what that means when it happens.
Harrison has a way of dragging the reader into the action that takes place in her book. Her main characters are appealing because they each have a purpose, whether it be for good or evil, and they are driven by it. Harrison makes us care about them, and that is the mark of a clever writer who is only going to get better as time goes by.
I found "The Firelord's Crown" a great read and think you might too.

This first novel in The Firelord’s Legacy series introduces a fantasy of a magic spell gone wrong, and a new age with the old problems of a dying king, his sickly heir, a healer from the past, a defender knight, and all the marvelous characters a reader expects to find in an Arthurian type legend. The best thing about this book is that it is beautifully written, has a complicated plot and a steady flow of action. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

The Firelord’s Crown by Dee Harrison is an epic fantasy about the seventeen-year-old crown prince Falath and his despairing flight from the powerful usurper of his father’s kingdom.

Treachery claims Falath’s bed-ridden father. The extent becomes clear when one of Rollo’s kinsmen, Malglint, reveals himself as a vassal to the conquering lord who has killed the king. Falath leaves his home with two companions: his cousin and sworn protector Rollo, and a foreigner-come-lately magician named Airen.

Falath and his friends are ever harried in his homeland. The hateful Malglint has a knack for trailing the prince’s party, plus has a deadly matter to settle with Rollo. Allies and double-crossers swirl into the prince’s path. The useful Airen swears to help, but harbors unsaid motivations that may jeopardize the prince.

Desperation finally convinces Falath to choose exile in Airen’s foreign land while Rollo stays behind. His cousin will kindle an uprising among the prince’s subjects who dislike the usurper’s rule. Things do not go as planned when the canny Malglint corners the three fugitives in a desperate fight at the edge of a precipice. The outcome is heartbreaking.

The Firelord’s Crown is a most satisfying start to a hero’s journey. Falath, Rollo, and Airen are likable guys who cannot catch a break. Harrison uses a masterful hand to describe the brutal winter weather and adrenalin-soaked fights. Malglint is my favorite kind of villain—despicable.

Readers who love epic fantasy and haggard flights through an unforgiving countryside would enjoy The Firelord’s Crown. Beware of the political intrigue. The story will have you all but trusting enemies and casting doubtful glances at your friends.
