Book Review! The Crimson Throne by Christi Stallard

The Crimson Throne (Crimson Throne #1) by Christi Stallard
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: February 10, 2017
Publisher: Self

Nearly a decade ago, the supernatural creatures hidden in the shadows conquered the world with unspeakable power. The mass takeover became known as the great fall of civilization and the most devastating event in recorded history. 18-year-old Sadie Carlisle has never seen past the walls of Section 18. After a city siege forces Sadie into a fight for survival, an unlikely ally turns her life into a thrilling and terrifying whirlwind. Peter is the ultimate drug; exciting, addictive, and highly dangerous. The war raging between dark creatures threatens everything they’ve discovered in one another. Loyalties are tested, and the fate of humanity rests in the balance. How far would you go for the one you love most? 

The Crimson Throne by Kristi Stallard is a gem that needs more recognition. Seriously guys, we need to get the word out about this one. 

The characters had character, their world had substance, and the story as a whole had depth. I was unsure about the insta-love in the beginning. It happened so fast, but I enjoyed Sadie and Peter as individual characters, so the relationship grew on me. I would like to get to know Peter a little more though. He still feels a little bit like a stranger to me in many ways. Sadie was great. I love her spunky independence. She didn't let being a little human hold her back one bit.  

I was completely intrigued by the supernaturals. I loved the dragons. That goes without say. The vampires were VAMPIRES. Sure, there were some nice ones, but the others? Well, they were nasty little beasties, and that's really putting it nicely. I hope we get to to see even more of the supernaturals in upcoming books. The Crimson Throne truly had a little bit of everything I like to find in a book with its crazy creatures, action, drama, romance, and humor, not to mention a bad guy who's brutal yet interesting and a main character I want to root for!
