Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Publication Date: 20 September 2016
Amazon | The Book Depository
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.
If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable
to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arsinoe, no matter how hard she
tries, can’t make even a weed grow. The two queens have been shamefully
faking their powers, taking care to keep each other, the island, and
their powerful sister Mirabella none the wiser. But with alliances being
formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the
queens’ every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might
not be the strongest…but she may be the darkest. (summary from Goodreads)
I read that and my immediate thought was "ooooh, yes, please!" Sounds dark and twisty! I loved Blake's Anna series but have yet to read her Goddess War trilogy. Should probably get on that!
Are you interested to read Three Dark Crowns? Have you read Blake's other books? What book has you counting down the days until its release?
