The Crowns of Croswald by D.E. Night | Book Review

Good morning, bookpups๐Ÿพ As a teenager who grew up with the magical world of Harry Potter, I have always loved a good magic story. D.E. Night has created a brand new world, full of adventure and magic. The Crowns of Croswald is this generation’s Harry Potter. Step into this incredible world with our review …

QOTD: What would you do if you found out you had magic?

Me? Probably build a magical never-ending library … a little bit like the library in Beauty and the Beast. Wouldn’t it be amazing to be sounded by walls and walls of books?

๐ŸพMany thanks to the author, D.E. Night, and NetGalley for my complimentary copy. This in no way influenced my review.๐Ÿพ


16-year-old Ivy Lovely has just found out that she has magic! And she gets sent to this amazing school that she’s only ever heard about – the Halls of Ivy – to become a scrivenist.

First, this book has such a Harry Potter-esque feel to it. I mean, girl who has this pretty cruddy life suddenly finds out she’s “special” and gets whisked off to a magic school. Very HP. But that’s not to say it’s a copy of the popular middle-grade series.

The Crowns of Croswald definitely stands on its own two feet. D.E. Night did a fantastic job of world-building and giving everything its own little place in the story. I also loved how one of the first characters you meet (and the one who keeps popping up quite a bit throughout the story) is Derwin Edgar Night … D.E. Night. That was such a fun addition for me!



While this is clearly a young-adult book, it’s very well suited for adults. I found myself sucked in at the very beginning and it didn’t feel like the super-easy read that many adults seem to expect from YA books. Though I initially thought this was more of a middle-grade read, I’d classify it as YA, as Ivy is 16 at the beginning. Oops, my bad!

    Iโ€™d end this pandemic with magic. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Or if I wasnโ€™t THAT powerful, make myself and my loved ones immune at the least.
