Kingdom of Wonders Book One: Journey to the Crown is a work of fiction in the fantasy and adventure subgenres. It is intended for the young adult reading audience and was penned by author Katrina-Marie A. Medrano. In this truly epic fantasy tale with a vast cast of exciting characters and daring situations, we follow our protagonist Mimi on an incredible journey of transformation. Starting out her life as a simple white cat on the streets of California, Mimi’s destiny as one of seven legendary warriors is revealed, and she is turned into a human being and sent to the Kingdom of Wonders to fulfill her sworn oath. A dark prince threatens the realm and its princess, and Mimi must use her catlike prowess to protect the princess and the future of the people at all costs.
Readers who want to lose themselves in a novel for a great length of time will certainly find the immersive world of the Kingdom of Wonders to their taste, especially as author Katrina-Marie A. Medrano has spared no detail and left no stone unturned whilst developing this incredible setting. The world-building and fantasy lore are top-notch, and although the plot develops slowly to give the characters time to grow on you, there are some great twists and exciting events throughout the tale. If you fall in love with Mimi and the friends she makes along the way, you’ll get a lot out of this work, as it’s clear that Medrano puts a little piece of her heart into every new face that appears in the work. I also really enjoyed the conversational dialogue style which felt very fresh and modern. Overall, Kingdom of Wonders Book One: Journey to the Crown is a fantasy work I would highly recommend.
