Review of Coronets and Steel by Sherwood Smith

Coronets and Steel (Dobrenica, #1)Coronets and Steel by Sherwood Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Magical. Incredible. I loved every word, every sentence. The concept of doubles and mistaken identity may have been a little cliched, but I don't care. The characters are so real I wept and laughed along with them.

Kim is an engaging narrator/POV character/protagonist. I love a strong female lead, and she is definitely that. A ballerina/fencer who loves old movies and Beatles music, she appeals to me in so many ways. She never allows anyone to rule her, even the handsome Prince she meets in her travels. :)

Alec is a fascinating mystery; Tony is a handsome dangerous contradiction; Ruli is more than she seems; and Sisi... well, I don't want to say too much.

Is it fantasy? Sort of. Not really. But it will appeal to fans of fantasy. Highly recommended.
