#1 New York Times bestselling author Kendare Blake returns with the highly anticipated third book in the Three Dark Crowns series!

Katharine sits on the throne, Mirabella and Arsinoe are in hiding, and an unexpected renegade is about to wage a war of her own. The crown has been won, but these queens are far from done.

Three Dark Crowns summary: When kingdom come, there will be one.

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 lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

The last queen standing gets the crown.

My Thoughts

I still haven’t read the first two books, but I’ll get to them someday. I’m intrigued by some aspects of this series, and less so about others. I like the idea of one girl having magic while the other two do not, and then one girl having to fight the others to win the crown. However, I’m not a big fan of triplet/sister plotlines. I think it’s because I have two sisters, and the sibling dynamic in those relationships just don’t play true to me. I’m still planning on giving this one a try though.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
