Crown of Chaos (Legacy of the Nine Realms Book 4) by Amelia Hutchins

Emoji Review by Rebecca Dixon

I finished reading β€˜Crown of Chaos,’ Book 4 of Legacy of the Nine Realms series by Amelia Hutchins and it’s FANTASTIC 🀩! (FYI, I’m not affiliated with the author, not in the book biz, reading is just a HOBBY, and I’m just a regular reader that is super passionate πŸ’— about spreading the word on GREAT books!) There are NO MAJOR spoilers πŸ™ŒπŸ»!

OK! Mannnnnnnnn … THIS BOOK πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»! SO MUCH happened πŸ™ŒπŸ»!!! Seriously! We ended in a COMPLETELY different place then when we started πŸ˜²β€¦ and the journey 😱! WOW 😡! So many INCREDIBLE 🀩 moments happened in this book! There were a few AGONIZING 😩 moments too… one in particular… CRY FEST CENTRAL 😭😭😭! But in saying that, although it can be a trigger for some 😒, I REALLY think it was a SIGNIFICANT moment in the plotline & although it was tough… definitely TOUGH πŸ˜£β€¦ I think it was rather BRAVE of Amelia to explore a devastation that many people go through in such a respectful & impactful way πŸ’—. And not only that… it was pretty KEY to the overall plotline and character development! It was really a DEFINING πŸ‘†πŸ» moment. A BIG turn in the enemies-to-lovers trope! HONESTLY ✌🏻, right after that… I thought πŸ€”β€¦ THAT’S IT! Turn of the lights! Enemies-to-lovers is done 😩! We got a ROMANTIC HEA πŸ’˜ folks! BUT βœ‹πŸ»! NOPE πŸ˜†! (AND PRAISE πŸ™πŸ»THE BOOK GODDESS πŸ’ƒβ€¦ aka Amelia πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…β€¦ FOR THAT πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»!)

SERIOUSLY πŸ₯ΈπŸ˜†! After that HEA-like moment, I REALLY was WONDERING πŸ’­ if I would be HOOKEDπŸͺfrom then on out!? And I don’t know why πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ because THIS IS AMELIA FREAKING HUTCHINS we are talking about πŸ˜†πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜…! And I gotta say! She DID NOT DISAPPOINT πŸ‘πŸ»! It was so BRILLIANT πŸ’‘ actually! Pure GENIUS 🧠! To find a way to take that moment… a moment that felt like ALL the walls were DOWN ⬇️…. and flip ‡️ it on its head! Like! HOW?!! 😲😲😲 It all SEEMED like it was going to be OK βœ…! BUT! The key here I realized is the term ADVERSARY (not ENEMY!). In-the-name-of ADVERSARY, there was brilliant distance between the MCs that quickly allowed a Ball where … let me tell ya! … I was ready to SMACK πŸ‘‹πŸ» THE HELL OUT OF KNOX 😑 & a little VIXEN 😑😑! And not only that! AURORA! WTF 🀬! Girrrrrrrrrrl…. I said in the last review that KNOX better RUN πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ cause I’m a comin’ for him πŸ‘ŠπŸ»! And Aurora girl, you have NO IDEA…you better get that betraying, self-serving, hiney out of that Ball 😀! Cuz it AINT’T just me thoroughly ready to POUNCE 🀺! Our girl Aria is CLEVER AS EVER and you better watch πŸ‘€ out!! (Errr… is it normal to talk to characters in a review?! Ehhhh… not so sure about that πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ πŸ˜‚! But oh well! Ima gonna do it 🀣🀣🀣!)

So that WHOLE scene was FANTASTIC (needless to say πŸ˜…!) And then … we are back on track with enemies-to-lovers! Woot πŸ™ŒπŸ»! Woot πŸ™ŒπŸ»! And THEN!! Jusssst when we think the HEA coming… BOOM πŸ’₯ !!! In comes an unfortunate FLYER πŸ“„ misunderstanding that makes our girls blood (and well ours too πŸ˜…)… BOIL 😑!!! It was really SO GOOD πŸ‘πŸ». I was NERVOUS 😬 at this point that a misunderstanding would turn into a HUGE misfortune (and anxiety was a kickin’ in for real πŸ˜†!) BUT THEN! Freaking BADA$S 🀺 Aria kicking butt & taking names! THIS GIRL πŸ‘πŸ»! She is AMAZING 🀩. Every time she gets beat down πŸ‘ŠπŸ», she rises STRONGER πŸ’ͺ🏻. Her barbed tongue πŸ‘… is so HONEST, BLUNT, and CLEVER! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» She’s like… take this BARRIER yo and my SASS too πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ€£! Oh! And I LOVED πŸ₯° the relationships formed in this book! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³ FINALLY our girl is getting some folks behind her back πŸ™ŒπŸ»! And it was SO NICE 😊! I mean so, so NICE πŸ₯° for her to FINALLY become what she needs to be πŸ™ŒπŸ»! To see her FINALLY not give two FLYING FLIPPERS anymore πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»! Our girl gets so SMARTπŸ’‘& POWERFUL πŸ’₯ in this book & I am HERE for it πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ!

AND! NOT ONLY THAT 😲! But yesssssssss on the ending πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³ We have been TEASED 😜 with this since Book 2 (errr maybe Book 1?) … and it is finally coming to fruition! 🀩 Yippee πŸ₯³ πŸ₯³! We already have TONS more answers from this book and we are about to get MORE 😍! Such an EXCITING 🀩 ending for the FUTURE πŸ‰ πŸ”₯ 🏰 of our Queen πŸ‘Έ and I CANNOT WAIT to find out what is next πŸ™ŒπŸ»! I am also SUPER invested in finding out what will happen with this enemies-to-lovers πŸ₯·βž• πŸ’ž trope! Will Amelia sprinkle some fairy πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈ dust & keep the ANGST kicking 🦡?! OR… will she take us down a DIFFERENT romantic πŸ’˜ path πŸ€” (ok, I’m not SERIOUSLY thinking Knox won’t be end game, but the journey is certainly fun, isn’t it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!?!) And GOOD πŸ‘πŸ» NEWS πŸ‘πŸ»! OK! So this isn’t a completed series, no… BUT βœ‹πŸ»! The way this book ends is SO satisfying 😍! It’s a minor cliffhanger, but it’s not gonna leave you in agony! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ₯³πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ€©πŸ‘πŸ»

So… WITH THAT 😁! If you LOVE enemies-to-lovers trope that is amped up to it’s MAX with AMAZING STEAM πŸ”₯, a SASSY takes no CRAP πŸ‘ŠπŸ», tell-it-like-it-is HONEST ✌🏻FMC, a HOT/COLD Alphahole πŸ₯΅ that SCREAMS SEX 🌢 for DAYS, a FANTASTIC FANTASY πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈ plotline… this may just be the PERFECT πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’‹ amount of HEAT πŸ”₯ & FANTASY for you!
