Book Review: Broken Crowns [The Internment Chronicles #3] by Lauren DeStefano
Broken Crowns is the third and final installment to the Internment Chronicles, and is a book I have been waiting years for, to see how this series ends. Broken Crowns picks up after the events in the previous book, Burning Kingdoms, where we join Morgan, Pen, and the rest of the group on Earth, trying to sort out their current situations, and figuring out how they can get back home to save the people they love.
Internment is sinking, ever so slowly, and soon enough it will crash into earth, killing thier home and thier family. Morgan and Pen have to come up with a way to save thier home, but also thier home on earth too, to stop this war and try to restore the peace.
Broken Crowns is a book that draws you in, and has you wondering what is going to happen. There are a few surprises that I never expected, and I liked getting to see old faces again. The progression of the story was well paced, and I did feel more connected with the plot and the decisions the characters make. Going into this series, as you near towards the end you know a few things have to take place, to get the ending you want, I just didn't expect them to happen the way they did.
Broken Crowns was a much more enjoyable book for me, I was invested in the overall outcome for all involved, and wanted to see good things happen for them. The ending of the book wasn't something I expected, and I maybe would have liked a look at 'years later' to see what happens, but overall I liked how we got closure.
Broken Crowns is a very aptly names book, and it makes sense once you have read it. I found this one more enjoyable and easier to fall into. This is a great end to a series.
