      Review also posted on BookNest!“He was going to burn them.He was going to burn them alive.He could do it. He would do it. He must do it. This was his destiny now as the Empire's monster. And what good was a monster if it could not be made useful for killing?”Long before the last Windwalker embraced her powers, and the Emperor Solaris conquered the North, a golden prince decided to search for a pirate's hidden treasure. In this adventure he was not alone; an ambitious lord the West, the voice [...]

      If you've read Air Awakens, you know the name "Crown's Dog" refers to Jax Wendyll. He's a good-hearted character who is quirky and unbalanced as a result of his past that torments him. We see him in action in this book and his deeds are definitely consistent with his later life. I love this character for he's not afraid to breach convention and we see that on full display as he "deals" with the antics of a 16-year-old Prince Baldair who has yet to make a name for himself. I particularly loved th [...]

      I was sent this book in advance by the author for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own.Actual rating 4,5 stars.First of all, you have to know I adored Air Awakens. I was not a reviewer yet at the time I read it, but I find myself thinking back to it and all of the amazing things that happened in those five books. Anyway, one of the many great things about it were the characters, and little did it matter if they were main or secondary ones. Among the side characters, Jax and Baldair we [...]

      if only it wasn't so boringalso i'm still fucking salty and bitter that (view spoiler)[BALDAIR FUCKING D I E D IN ORIGINAL SERIES AND IT WAS A FUXKING PLOT DEVICE (hide spoiler)]it's not actually a Jax book, but it's not a problem for me, because it focuses on Baldair and his relationship with his golden guards Erion and Jax. It's more or less Jax-centered, yes, but not a Jax book at all. And it's very preciousss! I can't wait for the next book with Raylynn.Also there is no Vhalla (thanks GOD) a [...]

      4 stars Anyone whose been following me for the last month or so knows that I've been going through my 'Elise Kova Awakening'. I read the entire 'Air Awakens' series in little more than a week and am now midway through shipping the entire series from the States, because I need the hardback copies in my life. You could read this book if you haven't read 'Air Awakens' but, honestly, it would make so much more sense and be so much more rewarding if you read AA first. So much of this book is about ch [...]

      Note: I received an ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review. This in no way influences my opinion.When I woke up the other day to this book sitting in my inbox, to say I was excited was an understatement! I was reading the last of Crystal Crowned at the time and I absolutely loved all of the books in the Air Awakens series. So, to be getting novellas, aka, the chance to revisit this world before the events of AA, I was sold!! I couldn't wait to find out more about the founding of th [...]

      "Luck would give with one hand and take with the other when it came to Jax's life."me @ Elise Kova: so, after 200 pages of feels where is my Jax x Elecia centered trilogy ???

    9. Cassandra Curiel

      I was lucky enough to Beta read this story for Elise a few moths ago but I decided to wait until after it was published so I could review it more fairly. I spent all of today rereading it and refreshing my memory so I could finally upload this, so here we go!This is the first installment in the prequel trilogy that focuses on the Golden Guard that we originally meet in the Air Awakens series. This story is dual POV and follows our beloved Jax and his good friend, Erion. Jax is the flirty male ch [...]

      OMG!!! Could this series get any better?First I felt like I was tortured from hell and back, next I felt my heart being ripped apart and then shredded in to a million pieces, I couldn't stand the pain. I didn't think it was possible for me to feel anymore pain, nope. But I did. How Elise manages to do this even in a novella is beyond my comprehension. I feel for anyone who is experiencing my pain right now *air hugs you* one million timesYYYWAYYYSSS.time to get down to businessThis one was very [...]

      “I’m exotic?” Erion raised his eyebrows.“Dark hair, bright eyes—what a blend of South and West!” Baldair’s voice went shrill in a poor imitation of a maiden’s as he brought the back of his hand to his forehead in a swoon.“Careful, I think he’s falling for you,” Jax cautioned.“I think you’re the one who should look out.” Erion started along the alley for the paved street ahead. “You’re the one who has to live with him all year, and he clearly has a thing for Wester [...]

    12. Jessica (HighFantasyFanatic)

      This was a fun short story of the adventures of the golden guard as 16 year olds and how it came to be formed. It has quite a different feel to it than the Air Awakens series because the protagonists are so young so bear that in mind. Overall love a good murder mystery ghostly pirate adventure!

    13. Jade Klinger

      I plan to do a more indepth review of "Crown's Dog". But as always in every review I've done of Elise's books, she always blows my mind. I loved reading from the perceptive of Jax. It's been quite sometime since I've read it so all of my facts are scrambled, but Crown's Dog is extremely worthy of 5 stars, which is what I gave it! I hope to be rereading this book as well as continuing on with the rest of the trilogy, very soon.

    14. Christa

      I love this world and this series but I would have enjoyed this book if it had come out between earths end and waters wrath. It's really hard to read prequels when I already know how the story ends. It is well written but prequels aren't my thing. I still love this world and the magic woven into it.

    15. Michelle (In Libris Veritas)

      “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”-The Crown’s Dog was an audio that basically took up my entire day. I ate, worked, and even slept (oops) while listening to it because the mix of engaging story and Zachary’s reading was just too good to hold off on.Our story focuses on two point of views, Jax and Erion. Jax is a sorcerer who has been conscirpted to the service of the youngest prince. He has a past that haunts him, which we [...]

    16. Haddie Harper

      Winner read. Right off the bat. We get a deeper look into characters that we already know and love. Or I should say adore, because I know I adore them. Getting to see more of Jax, Erion, and Prince Baldair. We even have a run-in with the Fire Lord. As usual, Elise Kova gives us a reason to grin, chuckle, cry and everything possibly in between. Having read and loved the Air Awakens series (except Crystal Crowned, as I have to finished that one), I truly loved to come back and revisit this world a [...]

    17. Sabrina

      My full review will be on my blog soon, however before it gets there I'd like to thank Elise Kova for the review copy in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoyed the story and plot to this prequel book. I for one believe it was a nice lead in into this Golden Guard prequel series. It was amazing getting back into a series I so much enjoyed. It also showed how much I really did miss these wonderful characters.However a few minor things may have bothered me about about the actually voices of [...]

    18. Emmie

      In the Air awakens series I always loved Jax. This just showed me more of his past, his pain, and his loyalty. The friendship between these three men is amazing. Even though this is a prequel story I would not read it before the Air Awakens series, because you might not appreciate the character development in the it if you read this first. It is a great look into characters I already knew and loved.

    19. Jaime (Two Chicks on Books)

      A strong opening to this prequel series to the Air Awakens books. I will say that only having male POV's would normally turn me off from a book but since I know all these characters and am already invested in their lives I didn't mind! I sure hope we get a female pov and some romance in book 2. But overall I loved this and the whole Pirate mystery.

      For more reviews like this check out Shelfie!“Next you’re going to tell me that you want to go find this long lost treasure.” Baldair grinned like a fool.I am late to the party with The Crown’s Dog. In fact, I didn’t even know it had been released until after I ordered my copy of Alchemists of Loom last month and suggested I also purchase The Crown’s Dog. So, of course, I did just that. How could I turn down an opportunity to return to the world of Air Awakens with Baldair at my sid [...]

    21. Stacy Bennett

      To be honest, I didn't read this but listened to it. A tale of pirate curses, missing treasure and murder, it was nonetheless a fairly light read and quite enjoyable. Though it was odd that a convicted criminal would be sentenced to serve a Prince so closely, I'm sure there is more to the story of how Jax came to be Baldair's man than just those simple facts. Obviously, Jax's traumatic past will be further discussed in later stories and I am eager to unravel it. The humorous banter and camarader [...]

    22. Samm | Sassenach the Book Wizard

      I am absolutely obsessed with everything Elise Kova puts out I guess. Her writing is so perfect! I love all the characters and the mystery/treasure hunt/murder/pirate-ness of this book! I need to finish the Air Awakens and the Golden Guards trilogy now!

    23. Teigan

      Oh my god. So excited for this because I adore the Golden Guard. They were pretty much my favourite thing about the Air Awakens series. Definitely gonna be a bittersweet read. ;___;

    24. Eileen (BookCatPin)

      As a big fan of the Air Awakens series I have to say we're really lucky to be getting more from the world! I was wary at first to get a look into the pasts of our beloved characters but Elise gives us another fun-filled story with The Crown's Dog.I enjoyed this glimpse into the earlier years of the heartbreaker prince's life. Baldir is so full of life. He's also a lot of trouble which was what landed them in the midst of a mystery surrounding an infamous pirate and her curse. While the beginning [...]

    25. Jamie (Books and Ladders)

      Disclaimer: I beta read the manuscript. However, I reread the finished copy of the book to give an opinion based on the finalized version.I will have a series review of the Golden Guard trilogy up on Books and Ladders on November 29th! It'll be a year since they released and that I read them, but they still hold such a special place in my heart. You can get an omnibus of the series on ! I absolutely adored The Crown's Dog and loved stepping back into the world of Air Awakens. We meet all these c [...]

    26. Kathleen Stebbins

      Everything in this book is fantastic. I've been so elated while reading the Crowns Dog, revisiting old friends with fresh perspectives! Watching as the Golden Guard forms and becomes official has been awesome. This is a mystery, a search for long lost treasure stolen from the Crown. Along the way they get turned about by smugglers, common street thieves and no one is pointing them in the right direction. The whole town is in on something, who can you trust? I especially enjoyed the how the chapt [...]

    27. Sarah Merrill

      I wasn't intrigued by the mystery at all and felt the book rather dragged on, though I did feel some sparks of joy from the interactions between the golden guard members. It really reminded me of a beach filler episode from an anime--some fun interaction between the characters, but overall a rather shallow plot. Just lacked some swimsuit shots, though Jax does end up in not very much clothing at one point so it almost evens out.

    28. Isabella

      After reading:It was good I liked it But it was not what I expected, and it certainly wasn't Air Awakens Could have been better, but I liked it. Still meh.Before reading:Why am I only finding out about this now!!!! How did I not know this was a thing?!?!?!?!?! I need it!!!! Like, yesterday!!! But I'd settle for tomorrow YES YES YES!!!!!!!
