There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Especially because I fell in love with the characters, I just found the whole things to be really drawn out.
I give it three stars because the first 2 books were so good, this book apart from the series would have been less stars for me personally.
Oh, how this book hurt my heart and also made me laugh. I was on the edge of my seat with the meeting between Poppy and the Queen of Blood and Ash!! There were so many twists in this book that I never saw coming. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
And Casteel and the other characters, had really bad English accents that went from cliche toffee to cockney, why would the author or producers let this happen? Casteel is masculine and a formidable character, the accent did not match his character, and why swap from American to bad English accents, it was not right ....it really ruined the story for me and I had to go back to kindle and finish reading.
This is a 5* read so you definitely need to check it out.
I recommend reading this book in large chunks in order to move things along as quickly as possible. If you are someone who only reads a few pages a day I fear you may lose interest or get completely lost halfway. But with some perseverance it does pay off in the end.
As with the previous books in this series, it sure takes you on a ride of emotions. We learn so much more about everything and everyone. There are so many twists and turns, and so so much going on.
As with the previous books this one also ends on a cliffhanger, can’t wait for the next book in the series.

The mystery of Poppy’s parents flip flopped so many times I just didn’t care by the end. Too many twists equals exhasperated readers.
The romance was pushed past all interesting concepts. There was maybe one conflict where casteel finally called poppy on her childish nonsense but then it went back to fawning adoration.
Also, the ancient but attractive man falling for a teenager trope is beginning to feel very midlife crisis and a little creepy.
I just can’t believe all the 5 start reviews out there. I was exhausted by this book 95% of the time. And now we have to read 3 more of them?!
No thank u. I’m out.
Now the book itself… Holy amaze balls this was soo good. I mean anxiety inducing good. The first few chapters had me on the edge, I was so scared reading each page, incase someone died. But I love it when books do this to me and its one of the reason I love Jen’s books so much is because she does this so well!
The story picks up immediately after the AKOFAF finished, so you find out right away what’s going on after the jaw dropping revelation that happened at the end of the last book. From there a lot of stuff goes down that I’m not detailing because SPOILERS. There’s plenty of hilarious banter between the Fab 3, Poppy, Cas and Kieran. As well as some really pull at your heartstrings moments between Casteel and Poppy.
And then that ending…. I can’t even! Like I knew something was gonna happen hence the anxiety I mentioned above but jeez I was not expecting that and cannot wait for the next book, if feels like the wait is going to feel longer than the wait for this one was.
In a nutshell…
The Crown of Gilded Bones is an emotional rollercoaster that you won’t want to get off! It will make you laugh, cry and in true Poppy style make you feel stabby – Enjoy the ride!!!
Nothing happened. Zero. It was as entertaining as making me read through 200 pages of tedious bullet points on random historical facts. Instead of developing any of the existing characters so that we could actually care about them and what happens to them (because it is book 3 after all) there are just random new characters introduced with so many identity twists - I lost track of who was related to whom.
Also, skip any inner monologue (i.e. every other page) as it will 100 per cent get repeated in the next pages preferably in the form of another lengthy conversation. How can a conversation be 30 pages long and still nothing is being said?
This book just made me angry for wasting my time.
From those opening scenes right through to the end, readers will be enthralled and captivated. It's intense, exciting, daring and full of so many amazing twists and turns. You will laugh, cry, sigh and maybe gowl absentmindedly. You. Will. Experience. Everything. And isn't that the whole point. The sign of an epic saga like this, is when you can connect to the characters and their emotions regardless if it all feels otherworldly and implausible. It's pure unfiltered magic on paper.
Author Jennifer L Armentrout is a literary crafts woman. How she weaves a tapestry with so many different beautiful threads joining into one glorious picture. The dialogue, the action sequences, the magic and power and rules and destruction, it's all so impeccably well done and will have you invested, intrigued and on the edge of your seat the whole way through.
This book was utter perfection. It's no wonder readers are falling in love with Poppy and Casteel.
They went to the land of the gods... an exciting prospect where it could have built more interest, but they went in and out of their like a dose of salts. Nothing much happened, I was a bit numb by then with the story.
It was an odd book as i kept waiting for it to begin and then it was over. I felt trapped all the way through in mind blowingly boring narrative about more and more description on a dress or food, okay but then go to land of gods and NOTHING. What an opportunity missed!!
Then the weirdest thing was walking into something with their eyes wide open... A trap!! They all had to know it was as they didnt meet the queen on mutual ground but at her place.. Eh? A child of 10 could have worked that out and yet here was Casteel who had been around hundreds of years and he just upped and said, yep lets walk right into this trap with no way out. talk about dumb. he lost more credibility as a character. That was a sad old thing to let happen in this book and took it to the most unbelievable point. I stopped caring about the characters
as they were used to fit the plot rather than a deeper creative meaning. It was unbelievable for the characters to act in this way and wasnt clever. So i lost even more interest and think maybe the author was also losing interest, which I cant blame her as she has a lot of books on the go. I dont feel I will read the next one.
On the other hand I Loved the last series Roth and Layla, Elemental and thats really worth a read. you can love those characters. This book "The Crown of Gilded Bones" is not, and is not rounded enough for me. I guess loads will just love it regardless, but where is it going? just circling around and around. Needs a bit more genuine action to spice this up. Casteel started out really hot and now.... Not. Whereas Roth and Layla in The Dark Elements series, worked well. Good characters. Although Poppy is good she doesn't have a lot of personality just a bit badass and getting a bit bored with it and these types of characters that have super human strength. Want to see some vulnerability, which is more real from all of them. no one is like this so it needs to have a tad more realism as young girls are going to bite into this. They will look at that perfect love and think it is real. It can be but not when you go looking for it or think it is your right. Make the girls in the books work a little harder and the boys not fall over the grils quite so much, as the girls arent all gloriously good nor the boys and neither is anyone. I wondered if Poppy was going to get off with the Wolvern. Hes a bit more interesting at least. Sorry to say I am disappointed and not a fan of this book. I also want to say that Jennifer is a good writer and prolific so I can forgive her for this book as I think she is juggling serveral stories almost at once. I can see how this can end up in a tangle. I've seen discrepancies throughout this book and others. Shes writing real fast. Well done regardless of what I feel about this book. Thats why I havent put it at 1 start.
