The Crown of the Desert is the third book in An Empyrian Odyssey series by N. L. Willcome. Continuing the story of Tamsin as she looks for ways to help Haven, every time she gets close, something stumps her efforts. Getting Haven free from the clutches of the Ravine of Bones appears to be near impossible, but that does not mean she will stop. As Tamsin gets in touch with her newly emerging powers, outcasts appear and cause chaos. The Empyrian rebels work toward ending Cornelius’s regime while Emilia, Georgiana, Lord Urbane, and others all have their battles to fight. However, nothing comes close to the chaos inside Tamsin. She needs to make a decision, and she needs to make it now or else lose everything.
I waited a long time for The Crown of the Desert, and you can imagine how high my anticipation was. Tamsin is the perfect protagonist. She is determined, has a goal, and has the power and the brains to achieve that goal. I was expecting tension, drama, action, and perfection, and I got them all. The tension was so thick I could feel it and loved it till the end. The cliffhanger, the struggles, and the subplots all worked toward giving readers a complete theatrical experience. I love Tamsin’s growth and how confident she is. While Tamsin has my heart, I loved Georgiana’s growth and how well she handled her predicament. Lord Urbane and Emilia’s chemistry is fantastic. I am now anticipating the reunion between Tamsin and Haven. Also, I am forever grateful to N. L. Willcome for providing a pronunciation guide! I highly recommend this series to fans of epic fantasies and young adult fiction.
