Kalothia has grown up in the shadows of her kingdom, hidden away in the East after her parents were outed as enemies of the king. When assassins attack her home on her sixteenth birthday, she must flee to the king’s court – a beautiful but lethal nest of poison, plots and danger, overseen by an entrenched patriarchy. Can Kalothia navigate this most worldly of places to find her own role? What if she must choose between her country and her heart?

Goddess Crown
by Shade Lapite
Review by Rebecca

A thoroughly entertaining, fast-paced story of one girl's rise from obscurity to leader and Queen of Galla. Inspired by West Africa and set 1000 years ago, with a rich tapestry of characters who are either friend or foe of Kalothia. Feminist ideas and push-back at misogynist men who have no faith in Kalothia's ability to lead. Great world-building. Excellent for 14+
