I found Constance to be an amazing woman. It is clear that she is destined to become a great queen. She loves her country. She also loves and respects her father, whom she looks up to as a great king. Constance is a great strategist. She makes many plans and is willing to take many risks. She also researches the customs, situations, and politics of her enemy’s people to understand Munda’s situation. It is because of this that she sees Munda’s weakness which is Diachona’s advantage. Even though Constance is a good politician, she also rules with her heart. She is very emotional. She is in love with Staid, the military leader of Diachona. Yet she knows her family wants her to marry a foreign prince to help strengthen alliances. Constance is determined to be the official heir to the throne, win the war, and to have love.
I didn’t think the world-building was fully developed. I would have liked to known a bit more about Diachona and the neighboring countries surrounding her. I would also have liked to known more about the Diachonian peoples, customs, and culture. Yet, I did come to the conclusion that Diachona had a great military, and that the council members seem to be divided. They were more concerned about their own safety, rather than that of their country because they wanted to Diachona to give themselves up to Munda very easily.
Overall, the book is about love, family, and hope. The message of the book is that God has a plan for all of us and to trust in His plan. We as human beings are called to do what is right. I found the story to be very slow-paced and I was very bored by the politics, which covered half the book. I also thought that the climax was boring for it had no tension, and I think it should be rewritten to heighten its dramatic effect. However, I did like the story for it was light-hearted, sweet, and lovely. I also thought it was a beautiful ending. I recommend this book to fans of Christian, fantasy, and romance genres, and anyone interested in strong heroines and who is looking for an inspiring story about hope.
(Note: This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.)
Overall, I liked the central characters, who were believable and I certainly liked Constance's strength. I did find the language quite heavy going, although some descriptions were extremely well done. Although set within a fantasy world, the story did have the feel of 'true' history - that in itself well done, bringing alive the 'world' for its characters (and the reader).
These are not the usual stories I like, but I will say that it was well written and for those who enjoy the 'historical romance' type, it's a good read. But that's not to say that it went much deeper than that - I don't give spoilers.
Worth a look.
Constance is a strong young woman who is realistically flawed. She’s uncertain of herself and has a strong need to prove herself. She relies on her friend for an understanding of her fellow characters. She’s part of a political game of chess that is very cleverly mapped out for the reader. Keels entertains the reader while slowly setting up what’s to come in the more intense second part of her story. Readers of romance, political intrigue and alternate worlds will find themselves engaging with Constance and her struggle.
I have two criticisms of The Movement of Crowns. The first is that the dialogue is very inconsistent in style. There is a feel and formality that slips from time to time lending itself to more modern speak. The second is that some of the key background characters are quite one-dimensional. In my opinion the story doesn’t suffer from the lack of development but could have been enhanced with just a few lines.
Keels is strongly Christian and her work reflects her beliefs. The Movement of Crowns doesn’t have an overbearing religious subtext but it is quite evident. Her romance storyline is very appropriate for young teens and the fantasy-like story line may appeal to young girls.
