Description

Fire at her fingertips. Watch the world burn.

When Monroe Benson was born with the power to summon fire from her fingertips, her family knew she had to stay hidden. But when Queen Viera calls for the Culling, an age-old tradition in Erydia where ten goddess-touched girls battle to the death in order to claim the crown, Monroe can no longer hide.

“The intriguing plot, complex characters, and brilliant writing make this a page-turner to the very end.” —School Library Journal

“Using a richly detailed near-contemporary setting and blending well-trod fantasy tropes with romance, intrigue, and action, Crump capably delivers an opulent tale of defiance and resilience in this absorbing debut.” —Publishers Weekly

"Of Cages and Crowns hits basically every YA fantasy must. There’s a magical heroine, there’s war, a destiny, and of course, an unlikely romance. But despite this, and the book being described as 'The Hunger Games meets Shadow and Bone,' Of Cages and Crowns manages to stand apart in a genre that is filled to the brim with very good books which follow more or less the same formula." —Fangirlish

"Of Cages and Crowns is an epic dystopian fantasy read that will hook you in and leave you wanting to know what will happen next." —Your Bookish Life

"If you’re a fantasy geek, definitely watch out for the name of author Brianna Joy Crump." —Young Entertainment Magazine
