Read Beast & Crown (Beast & Crown #1) Online Free - From the author of The Fog Diver comes a new epic fantasy series, delivering a thrilling combination of adventure and humor! Beast & Crown is a sweeping two-book series filled with goblins and ogres and magic, in which a daring group of friends must decide if it’s worth sacrificing a few to protect the many.
Sally is tough. Roz is smart. But thirteen-year-old bootboy Ji is sneaky.
And after years of scrubbing at muddy soles and untangling laces, Ji is done with being a servant. He doesn’t want to polish leather, he doesn’t want to bow and scrape. All he wants is freedom-for himself and his friends.
So he risks everything for a chance for them to accompany a young nobleman to the Diadem Rite, a magical ritual that chooses the heir to the Summer Crown. Ji doesn’t care about crowns or ceremonies; but he vows that this expedition will grant them all new lives, far away from stables and boots and servitude.
But Ji doesn’t know that he and his friends have a crucial part to play in the Diadem Rite. One that will change them forever.
