To Kill a Kingdom is the The Little Mermaid of your nightmares... you should definitely add this one to your to read lists! Lira is an absolutely riot! * Beautiful Bookland *
I really, really, loved this book. There's not enough books out there which go into the underwater-fantasy genre. To Kill a Kingdom fills that gap in the market. It's well written and the characters are simply brilliant * Life Has A Funny Way *
I thoroughly enjoyed this book * Much Ado About Books *
This was AWESOME. It's so rare to find well-developed second-world fantasy YA standalones - but this book managed to deliver a great story, three-dimensional characters and excellent world-building all within one single novel * Astolat Books *
This is actually a harder review to write than I anticipated; I literally just want to write a page of "I love it, I love it, I love it" and squeal with excitement as I reminisce over this incredible book and suffer through my book hangover! I can't recommend To Kill A Kingdom highly enough; it certainly lives up to the expectation and can certainly rival incredible fantasy books such as those by Maas and Bardugo, and I can't wait to see what Christo writes in the future! * Snaily Can Fly *
A glorious new book for your YA fantasy shelf * Library Looter *
It has everything! Banter, sass, chemistry, pirates, adventure, action, a bitch queen mother, incredible world-building, consistent plot and pacing and awesome character arcs and progression. Ultimately, it is incredibly fun and entertaining. Just read it. * Emma's Chapter *
Alexandra Christo's debut is much better than anything Maas has ever written. Definitely a book that I can see turning into a big hit with readers. * Mystic Reads *
The world building is deft, and the spectacular ending is a happy one for Lira and Elian, but it will leave readers blissfully wanting more. * Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books *
