    Volume 3 is a return to form after the redundant volume 2 of this series There are revelations about the Sekoi the mysterious aboriginal cat like people of the planet Anara The plot goes to some unexpected places and unlike the previous volume the uest makes senseTwo of the protagonists seem to develop; Carys and the Sekoi The Keeper and his scholar seem much the same as when we first met them at least in terms of characterThere are various mutantgenetically modified creatures on Anara; one of them lives in water and is called an Avanc This is an Anglicisation of the Welsh Afanc a mythical monster There's a great sculpture of one outside the Betws y Coed Tourist Information Centre Go look if you're ever there It's a picturesue village in North Wales The girl protagonist also has a Welsh name; Carys So I think Fisher wanted to sneak some Welsh culture to Anara Maybe one of the Makers was Welsh or a group of the colonists?The GalenThe Crow is interesting in the context of some of Fisher's later works He's pretty unpleasant and deeply flawed despite being driven towards goals that are good and unselfish In Corbenic and Crown Of Acorns the main protagonists are similar but less sympathetic Galen That trend started here I think These flawed characters seem very realistic but limited sympathy for the protagonists weakens those books So weirdly Fisher has got better and worse in the last decade or so

    Originally posted CSILibrarianLike both The Dark City and The Lost Heiress The Hidden Coronet was fantastic From beginning to end I was engaged concerned and so pleased by everything that happenedThe Hidden Coronet was the most event filled installment so far but it never felt overwhelmed or bogged down Instead there is just one awesome moment after another and from a larger range of view points at a rapid pace I cannot settle on a favorite part but I especially loved the Frost Fair the way the keepers spoke to the forest to create a path the Canticle of Flain all the little details about Kest all the snippets of various fairy tales and Carys' experience in TherissThe world building maintained the same level of excellence I'd come to expect from the Relic Master series and the introduction of new characters as well as the way they were utilized was very very cool And the darkness that's been growing steadily began to really rear its ugly head and I just loved the way Galen Raffi Carys the Sekoi and all the others have started to deal with it And I cannot wait to see of them trying to take on the Margrave In conclusion completely awesome If you aren't reading this series you are really missing out Fisher is a remarkable writer and I cannot wait to see what happens in the last book The Margrave

    The world of Anara is starting to crumble all around our heroes And there’s not much they can do to stop it Except maybe one thing Find the ancient coronet of the Maker Flain It is something which our keeper don’t even have the least bit idea where to find But they must for the fate of Anara And they must find it before the Watch and the Margrave Kest’s most dangerous creation finds it first PlotIn The Lost Coronet the gang is trying to find the coronet of Flain because basically Anara is beginning to fall apart because of the spread of the Unfinished Lands and Kest’s creatures This book is of a setup book for the finale than anything else So it’s not the most engaging WritingThe writing is still good Once again we are subject to a slow start I’ve seen other reviewers mention that the first half of the books are slow to them too I’ve got no trouble reading past it but it takes longer to read the slow first half than the interesting second half CharactersI’m honestly confused whether or not I was supposed to feel sad by name withheld’s death I wasn’t and I hope I wasn’t supposed to or that means Fisher did a bad job making me feel apathetic to that character Besides that I liked the rest of the characters the exception being Raffi still I don’t know why but Raffi isn’t a protagonist that really stands out to me He hasn’t made any buffoon ish mistakes this time around but I don’t give him all that much credit I don’t hate the boy but I don’t really like him eitherI still love love love Carys She is such a great character I would have liked her as the protagonist instead She’s everything that Raffi should be Galen didn’t get as much attention as he did in The Lost Heiress which saddens me I like the focus being on Galen for pretty much the same reasons as Carys The Sekoi is a character that I just become interested in I hope nothing bad happens to it Things I LikedI’m starting to get a hang of the world of Anara There are concepts that I have a better grasp of now three books in to a four part series Better late than never That aside I think Anara is a very fascinating world If Fisher had another series set in it I honestly think I’d read it Things I Didn't LikeI suppose I didn’t really like the insinuation that Raffi had this sort of untapped potential that he has literally never shown I think Fisher believes she’s created a much proactive protagonist but for the most part all he does is fumble around and get saved by Carys and Galen Also there are still things that aren’t being explained For example characters make what are called “signs” with their hands but it’s never described what it physically looks like Also I’m still confused about the Makers The words “Makers” and “God” are used interchangeable Who’s God? And what is their relation to the Makers? It’s stuff like that which shouldn’t be kept from the readers DiversityCarys That’s it OverallI liked The Lost Coronet Like I said earlier it’s of a setup book for the big finale but that doesn’t make it bad The first half was a bit slow and dull but the book or less picked up It wasn’t as action packed as The Lost Heiress was though I’m hoping for all that didn’t happen in this book will happen in the next one Here is a link to my notes

    Sigh sometimes I wonder why I keep reading these books The Dark City was decent The Lost Heiress was okay and I wasn't falling over myself to get the next book in the series Well the library did get the entire Relic Master series in so it helps that I can read them all for free Plus I keep reading reviews and other online comments that say the series gets better as it goes on so I kept on goingBook three in the Relic Master series The Hidden Coronet continues the story of young Raffi and his master Galen This time they are uesting for a very powerful relic a coronet that may help save the worldYeah that's pretty much all there is to it Even though the plot itself is very simple and pretty thin Hidden Coronet is a uick and easy read that still has the charm and fun of the previous installments Most importantly Hidden Coronet is a definite improvement from the previous installment The Lost Heiress It has character development and some action as well as greater mystery to it and was just downright intriguingOverall I was happy with The Hidden Coronet so than The Lost Heiress I wouldn't say that it's amazing but it's a fun and enjoyable read

    The Hidden Coronet is a fantasy book set on the world of Anara a fictional identical Earth It was written be Cathrine Fisher and is one of the best books I have ever read Learn about the story behind Carys and how Raffi could be the most important person on Anara Learn the Sekoi secrets and how the Great Hoard is important than we could have ever imagined

    Another childhood favorite I loved this book since I was 10 and I just remember it being one of my first adventure genre novels that I read I totally recommend others to try this series even if it's a little old o

    I am done with this series and I will not read the final book I did not care for the underlying religious theme that became prominent in book 3 I don't enjoy reading about zealots

    Galen and Raffi have found another Keeper Unfortunately they are going to have to rescue him from the Watch The weather is going bad The Margrave is gaining power Now Galan Discovers they need to find the Coronet a powerful relic But someone is spying on them and telling the Watch who is with them and where they are going Who could the spy be?This book is even better than the first two Of course there are still the problems of Raffi and Carys seeming younger than they actually are and Galen being an ornery grumpy butt Other than that I really like these characters I am concerned snout their welfare I don’t want to see them injured or in jail I really love this story I cannot say it enough I like how we see this world that has clearly lost touch with civilization It is very interesting how uickly it sank into darkness How their belief systems were derived from the technology of the original colonizers As readers we continue to find out about the makers each clue gives us a greater understanding both on how far this world has sunk and how technologically advanced the makers were I am very curious to see if the makers will actually return during this series or if it will continue to be some far off prophecy G Scary monster Tornado like storm Violence between people

    Friendship Betrayal Saving Destruction All of this and happens in this third installment in the series Raffi a relic master's apprentice is getting of an education than he ever bargained for when he began his training under Galen Harn They are on a race against time and other forces to save their beloved world Yes this is a theme that has gets repeated in this genre but I'm still enjoying this variation

    This is three and a half stars If it were just a fantasy alone I wouldn't really want to continue reading but these tiny hints of science fiction are keeping me hooked Hopefully they're explored in the next and final book
