"The crown of crime shall fall as kin performs regicide before the time of dawn. The crown of crime shall pass to another as the destiny of an innocent disturbs a kingdom." -Meekil A prophecy foretells of an unfortunate incident that will affect an entire kingdom. An innocent is tragically destined for a guilty cataclysm. The Crown of Crime is able to stand apart from all other stories, yet its characters are prevalent in the other books of The Frenalose Galaxy Collection. It conjures adult themes, yet it's as suitable for children as a common children's rhyme. It is a simple, sinister story and a complex, intriguing tale. The lessons that it contains are timeless and extensive and powerful.
