Review: The Crown of Gilded Bones

The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L Armentrout

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Genre: Fantasy


She’s been the victim and the survivor…

Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers. 

The enemy and the warrior…

Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head. 

A lover and heartmate…

But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other. 

And now she will become Queen…


This book starts off with a bang just as Kingdom of Flesh and Fire ended. Poppy is ready to kick butt and take names and I am there for it! I just love these characters. Poppy and Casteel of course are ❤️ but all the side characters really add to these stories. The banter between them all is just so fun! This book takes what the first two started and builds on it. Answering some questions and of course giving up more of what is going to happen. This book is jammed packed with 650 pages of action! So much happens. The ending was epic leaving me in shock of what’s to come. Nothing I mean nothing better happen to my Cas! The only negative thing I will say about this book is that it does get a little cheesy at times. I mean Poppy and Casteel are inlove yes but it got a little much! Anyway this book further adds to my OBSESSION with JLA and I already preordered her next book! Keep em coming!
