first class fantasy.
dragons, magic swords, immortals, and petty royalty.
also an excellent female lead which is rare in a book as old as I am. ( )

Robin McKinley is one of those Fantasy authors who I've never heard anything negative about her writing. When I found out that she wrote several fairy tale retellings, I began trying to find all of them. While this isn't a retelling, it's still Fantasy, so I bought it along with the second book, The Blue Sword.

I would have finished The Hero and the Crown in a single day if I had started it earlier. I tried to finish it before I went to bed, but by 4 am, I couldn't keep my eyes focused on the page anymore. So, I finished it the next day. The only part of the story I didn't care for was the romance. I know the two characters involved had spent a lot of time together by the time they fell in love, but it didn't feel that way. Perhaps that's because I read the book so quickly, or maybe it's because that part of the story didn't take up a lot of pages. Regardless, I would have preferred them to just be close friends. That's how I feel about a lot of fictional relationships, though, especially if the romance isn't necessary to the plot. Why is it that every time there happens to be both a male and female character in a book they have to fall in love with each other?

Putting the romance issue aside, I absolutely loved this book. There is a significant part involving the main character, Aerin, and her relationship with her horse that I thought would bore me because I've never had any real interest in horse stories. Surprisingly, that was one of the most engrossing parts of the story. In other words, Robin McKinley succeeded in making me care about a horse, when up to this point in my life, the only horses I've liked are My Little Ponies. So, if you happen to love horses, Robin McKinley, quest narratives, or High Fantasy, take a lazy day during the weekend (but start earlyish) to read The Hero and the Crown. ( )

This is the first Robin McKinley book I've ever read, and I really loved it. I picked it up on a whim at a used bookstore, and I read it pretty much in one sitting. It reminded me a bit of both Kristin Cashore's [b:Graceling|3236307|Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)|Kristin Cashore|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1331548394s/3236307.jpg|3270810] and Tamora Pierce's [b:Wild Magic|13836|Wild Magic (Immortals, #1)|Tamora Pierce|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1347991557s/13836.jpg|1171314], with sword fights and dragons and derring do and a phenomenal girl protagonist. I'm so glad I bought it! ( )

This is on my to-re-read shelf and I just re-read it again. Worth a re-read. ( )

First, this is not as good as the Blue Sword. The Blue Sword manages to both use and break stereotypes. This book is too much 80's wish fulfillment fantasy. I've read other books in this same genre that reads almost the same. But Robin McKinley does it best.

We have an ill-used Heroine. She is the only child of the king, but because she is female, she will not be queen. Of course, she prefers swordsmanship to embroidery lessons, riding horses over dancing, and generally, just completely different than her peers.

Note - this sentence contains spoilers. But, not much of spoilers since this book is fairly standard of this sort. Of course, she's treated badly, runs away, becomes friends with the forest, learns a bit of magic and defeats the bad guy, and life is good.

Its well written, characters are nuanced, the history of Damar is filled in, and I'm disappointed the origins of Damar is typical western type kingdom story, rather than something a bit less standard.

While this book does add a bit of history to the Blue Sword, its not essential reading. ( )

Miss McKinley, the author of ''The Blue Sword,'' a 1983 Newbery honor selection, has in this suspenseful prequel, which is the 1985 Newbery Award winner, created an utterly engrossing fantasy, replete with a fairly mature romantic subplot as well as adventure. She transports the reader into a beguiling realm of pseudomedieval pageantry and ritual where the supernatural is never far below the surface of the ordinary. For those who like fantasy fiction, as I do, ''The Hero and the Crown'' succeeds.
