Waiting on Wednesday: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Three Dark Crowns
(Untitled #1)
Publication Date: September 20, 2016
Hardcover, 416 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: YA, Fantasy

Fans of acclaimed author Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood will devour her latest novel, a dark and inventive fantasy about three sisters who must fight to the death to become queen.

In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

The last queen standing gets the crown.

My Thoughts

I read Blake’s Anna duology, and I enjoyed it. I’m hoping this series brings her work to a new level, though. Fantasy books have become ridiculously popular, and I don’t think I’ve read a bad one yet. Hopefully, this one keeps up with my good luck.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. This book cannot get here fast enough! I need pretty much right now! Hope you enjoy it!! My WoW post.

  2. I really liked her ANNA duology too! I think she’s a fantastic writer, so this one should be good. Great pick :D
