Crown of Bones (Crown of Bones #1) by A.K. Wilde

Book Review

Crown of Bones by A.K. Wilde is the first in a YA Fantasy series with an epic, unique magic system and action-packed adventures for survival.


“Raise. Your. Phantom.

For fans of epic fantasies and sweeping adventures, this ensemble cast will immerse you in a world of unique magic, breathtaking action and unforgettable characters.

In a world on the brink of the next Great Dying, no amount of training can prepare us for what is to come …

A young heir will raise the most powerful phantom in all of Baiseen.

A dangerous High Savant will do anything to control the nine realms.

A mysterious and deadly Mar race will steal children into the sea.

And a handsome guide with far too many secrets will make me fall in love.

My name is Ash. A lowly scribe meant to observe and record. And yet I think I’m destined to surprise us all.”

My Thoughts

If you love YA Fantasy stories with a unique magic system, a fast-paced plot, and a lovely cast of characters, I highly recommend picking this one up. 

This is a story of friendship-turned-romance amongst a well-written fantasy world of phantoms and power, and is definitely a world I’ve never seen before. If you are looking for an intro in the more adult, epic fantasy genre, I think this one would be a great stepping stone into the harsher tones and vast expanse adult stories tend to cover.  

It’s been awhile since I found a journey story that I didn’t mind following along. I feel like this book was a great balance of character and plot-driven elements that harnessed a beautiful beginning to their magic system. 

The ending left me wanting so much more (warning: cliffhanger), and I am so excited to see where this series takes me! A well-deserved 4 out of 5 stars from me.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
