Her Crown of Fire

Young Adult Fiction—Fantasy





In the dull, everyday world, seventeen-year-old Rose Evermore struggles to plan beyond her final year of high school. But when fire suddenly obeys her every command and her dreams predict the future, she becomes hungry for more of this strange power.

Under her dreams’ guidance, Rose lands in the fantasy realm of Lotheria–with a tagalong. Tyson, her best friend since childhood, winds up there with her, just as confused and a hell of a lot more vulnerable. In Lotheria, Rose is welcomed and celebrated as a fire mage at the Academy, while the very un-magical Tyson is forced into hiding under threat of death from the headmasters of Rose’s new school.

As Rose’s talent in fire magic draws unwanted attention and Tyson struggles to transition from high school student to blacksmith, Rose must find a way to return Tyson to their own world before the headmasters discover and execute him–no matter the cost.



18305439Renee April is the author of the young adult fantasy novel, Her Crown of Fire.

In addition to being an avid reader and writer, she streams games badly on Twitch and acts as a dungeon master for her D&D group. As a result, she spends far too much time in fantasy realms.

She can be found on various writing sites such as Wattpad and Goodreads, but usually lurks on Twitter to hand out bad advice and genuine sympathies.




Throughout this book, it was apparent that there were multiple parts that could be highlighted. For some of these, they made more of an impression than others.

As a child, it took me a few years to grasp the concept of ‘hot’; I always grabbed at flames, lit matches, birthday candles. I lick my bottom lip and stretch a palm toward the nearest column of fire. My heart freezes when it dances eagerly towards me.

Something that really amazed me by this quote was the sheer brilliance of it. Common sense in most humans is to not reach for the red-orange and hot flames. However, Rose knows something’s not normal about herself, and while it wasn’t completely brought out in a way that could’ve been smoother, it still pulled that bit of emotion out we needed.

A single click; a bright flame springs up eagerly, illuminating the dark hallway. I dart a finger through the white-gold teardrop. It flickers. Shadows close in around my single form, but the flame stabalizes, staving them off. This time, I drag my finger over it slowly.

No burn.

(This is quoted from uncorrected text)

As someone who’s been burned multiple times by hot crap, the reasonable part of me was screaming at Rose to not touch the damn flame.

Haha, I know. What can my conscious do to persuade a fictional character?

By and large, I did really enjoy this part. It was a key role in Rose discovering something about herself, and I feel that it was a major shift in the plot direction as well.
