The Movement Of Crowns
Movement Of Crowns book 1
by Nadine C. Keels
At the point when kingdoms’ ideas of humanity differ…
The nation of Diachona is celebrating the twentieth birthday and rite of passage for Constance, the Diachonian king’s daughter and heir. Yet, the pause for festivity doesn’t erase collective doubts about Constance’s aspiration for a place with the men on the National Council, nor does it eliminate fears roused by oppressive threats from a neighboring, powerful empire. Amid increasing rumors of war and personal misgivings about her own future, Constance deems this an inopportune time to be falling in love with one Commander Alexander. Will Providence keep them all through international tensions and the changing of times, or is Diachona watching its territory in vain?
This short book shares quite a story...
Since I read only a few books each year using the Kindle App on my laptop I kind of figured I would start this book and leisurely read it while doing other things. Yep, that was the plan. Didn't quite work out that way though. Instead I started it in the afternoon and finished that night. This book had a way of pulling you in... maybe it was a little bit of magic...
The Movement Of Crowns is a lovely cross-stitch of threads. It is not only a sweet love story, but also a nice piece of political fiction, and the story of a princess growing up and finding her place.
The story flows smoothly; some events are expected but there are also some surprises. In many ways a simple but very enjoyable story, it is perfect for a relaxing evening.
This Book earned a 4 Bark rating.

There is much to admire in the heroine. Constance simply wishes to do what is right for her kingdom, her family, and herself, pretty much in that order. She is intelligent, educated, and wants to use that to better the kingdom, even if the Council isn't quite ready for her take on a role traditionally held by a prince. She is kind and lovely, catching the eye of more than one suitor in this story.
So, if you like to sit down for a couple of hours and finish a good story. If you like a book that isn't quite traditional fantasy. If you like story that isn't overtly Christian but teaches Biblical principals and a love of family. Well, The Movement Of Crowns just might be the book for you. This reader is looking forward to sometime reading the next book, The Movement Of Rings.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives The Movement Of Crowns by Nadine C. Keels a 4 Bark rating.
