Crush The King by Jennifer Estep
Rating: 4.0 Stars * * * * 
I reread the prior Crown of Shards books so that I could enjoy this one, but I was a little bit disappointed. I so much enjoyed the first book in the series (Kill the Queen), and while I enjoyed this book, it wasn’t quite the same experience. Evie (the main character) was very well portrayed in this book (as with the other books) but the other characters fell a little flat. I loved the setting - the Regalia, a fierce competition among all the neighboring nations—what a great setting to have the last and final battle to crush the King of Morta. Or was it the last battle?
