The Night Circus vs. The Crown's Game | Book Battles

 

Welcome to Book Battles, a feature here at Crazy for YA where I put two books in the battle ring and have them fight it out to see which one is better.


Today's fight is between The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye. Even though the two books are aimed for different age ranges, their drastic differences really contribute to the same plot--a competition between two magicians that may or may not fall in love. The Night Circus was marketed more toward adults than young adults (but I don't tend to put too much stock in age ranges when it comes to YA vs. adult, just read whatever you want). 


With different age ranges, historical time periods, and casts of characters, it may seem like The Night Circus and The Crown's Fate don't have much in common. Despite the fact that the more intricate details do not exactly match, the core plot at the middle of the story is the same--a competition between two magicians with hate to love romance. 


My task today is to act as a referee between these two books to see which one mastered the story line better.

Undone By Fire

Review:

"Undone By Fire" by Falon Gold

My Thoughts....

I really enjoyed reading 'Undone By Fire' which dealt with Naveah and Orion. How this story went from a trial to a HEA was simply well written for these two giving the reader quite a captivating read. I loved how these two seemed to bond from the very beginning of their meeting. Then you add in that abusive person and let's not leave out some other outstanding characters...Tommy, Astrid, Gary along with a few others and you will have one heck of a good read. I will say that Tommy was one funny character that will keep you laughing at his antics throughout the story. Even though the reader will find some funny parts of the read this was still a serious story about 'Domestic Violence.' It seems like it took Naveah a minute to understand that she had people who were willing to help her but will she be willing to receive their help? This was a good story in that when certain things happen through abuse one cannot stay silent. There is 'help out there and it will not just stop and just go away.' No person should have to go through this situation alone especially when there is help for you! Well done novel to the author for such a real good entertaining read.

Review:

"Rudy" by Terry Poole
My Thoughts....

This was sweet m/m relationship that started almost from the first time Rudy meet Clay. However there will be a lots that will go on from Rudy and his crazy side of the family. There seems to be a lots of hatred due to Rudy's father, sons [especially Donny, Rudy's older half brother and his mother It was quite a delightful read as we see Clay enter the picture and was truly their for Rudy definitely being his protector.

I liked how this author brings in the shifting with the reindeer effect of the read and all from the cast of characters become part of the Rudolph the red nosed reindeer story:From Rudy..Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, Clay..Rudolph's love interest, Herman ...Hermy elf dentist, Donny.. Donner, Louis... Dasher, Daniel...Dancer, Juno... Cupid, Halley,...Comet, Rai...Blitzen, Tripper...Prancer, Dixon...Vixen and and list goes on. "Rudy" story will definitely have a 'new take on Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.'


This is one of those reads that you will have you will have to pick up "Rudy" to get the gust to the read and all because I don't want to spoil it by telling you too much. Once you start the read it will hold your attention as we see rather 'Clay will be able to save Rudy's life and the end up in a HEA, the toy factory being saved' and will of Rudy's horrible family members get what they deserved with all of the harm that they had caused him?
