Review: Chryers Crest

Chryers Crest
By:  CM Stunich


Rating: 4/5 Cogs


With honor, pride, and privilege …

It takes a brave person to be a Griffin Rider, and an even braver person to hold the Chryer's Crest and be a leader. But Jordan doesn't know about any of these things. She's a normal girl with a normal house and a normal cat (whose name just happens to be Mr. Marmalade).

When Jordan wakes up on Monday morning, she thinks it's going to be a day like any other. She certainly never expects to find a bird made of fire in her garden shed, and she's absolutely flabbergasted to encounter a griffin on that very same day! Of course, the most interesting things can show up in the most unexpected places. Jordan is destined for greatness, and her courage is needed to protect not only the world she loves, but also another that she never even knew existed.

With the help of Brixus, the Prince of Griffins, Jordan must prove that sometimes, it takes an outsider to lead the way.


This is a fanciful tale of wonder and magic as Jordan learns what it means to become a Griffon Rider that holds the Chryer's Crest.  I've read many different books from this author, and I never thought that I would see the day where I found a book from this author that I would be comfortable with my child reading (even though I love them, I guess I'm a major mama bear), but I can't wait to read this book out loud to my son during bedtime.  I'm a bit glad we're almost done with the last book. ;)  

This is a fantastic children's book that I can easily see girls and boys both enjoying.  The story is fast paced and engaging, perfect for short attention spans.  I had so much fun reading it alone as an adult, that I can't wait to see my son's face as I read to him about the flaming birds, griffons, and magical swords.  
I would definitely recommend this book for parents with small children!  I hope to read the next installment soon!
