5.0 out of 5 starsSuperb
Reviewed in the United States on August 28, 2018
I very seldom give 5 stars, except when reviewing a Morgan Rice book, then I find myself giving them consistently. A Crown for Assassins is the newest book in the journey that has been undertaken by Sophia and Kate. Orphans left in the brutal hands of the religious order of the masked goddess. They escape their slavery and learn that they are children of a noble family that was slaughtered by order of the newly appointed Queen that saw them as s threat to her rule. Eventually they find their way to where their Uncle, a Duke, has hoped for the day they would find their way to him. While there they are joined by their brother, Lucas who they had forgotten in the trauma they experienced on the night they became orphans. Lucas has been raised by a family retainer who spirited him away when the assassins came for his family. He has been looking for his sisters and when he finds them he shows them a device that may lead them to their parents. They leave loved ones behind as they set out to find their parents. What ensues is a story of love, betrayal, terror, heroism, courage, and madness full of magic and epic battles. One of Rices best series, in a long list of exceptional series. With characters you come to know and love and a story line too exciting to put down it's another winner from Morgan Rice.
This book has a lot of fighting as the new army takes over Ashton. Sebastian takes his daughter and his people to Stonehome but will they truly be safe there? Endi takes over Ishjemme and becomes a tyrant - can he be stopped? Sophia, Kate and Luke leave for a strange land to find their parents - will Ashton and Sebastian and Violet be safe without powers of the three?

As usual the latest book in this series is a page turner and keeps you enthralled. I love the sisters and Luke but there are so many other great characters and more being introduced and developed in every book. This book has a a lot of shockers and to say more would upset your reading pleasure. Read, enjoy and than recommend this series to your friends and even your library. I recommend this book for teens and up.
I am really struggling with the whole idea that Sophie would leave a kingdom under the the threat of war (especially with no magic users to support the kingdom!), her newborn daughter, and the man she launched a bloody war to be reunited with, just to "find" the parents that none of the siblings knew and who don't seem to care about finding them.
3.0 out of 5 starsThe book and series has been a fun read

This book seemed almost like a prologue that would be found in the next book. Most of the books written in this author's series should be combined into one book with another in its series. I would point out that a 1 month old baby wouldn't crawl away and how could the crow man miss an entire group of people--especially nobles. A character is introduced and bam, no development. The book held my attention but I am disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 starsMorgan Rice is an incredible author, this series is fire!

Morgan Rice is always imaginative in this book series it is no different she creates and paints a world where you can just dive in it sucks me into the point where I just had to devour the book I could hardly focus on anything else! This book took me 2 days to read it was so good!!!
The tangle of battles and striving for power sees Sophia and Kate in a mire of trouble. The Master of Crows is intent on destruction - one crazy villain. There are other kinds of villainy and others seeking revenge, and all manner of powers plays.
The story is steeped in magic with an intriguing cast of characters. A great sword and sorcery tale that could have been longer.
