The battle for the crown has begun, but which of the three sisters will prevail?

With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, the elemental sister once thought to be the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.

Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must confront the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.


Thank you Kendare Blake for making sure I received a copy of One Dark Throne for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

I loved Three Dark Crowns. Now I personally was pulling for Katherine. She is my favorite of the three. Katherine, is fierce, strong and vulnerable although she will not let others see that side of her easily.

I gave Three Dark Crowns 4.5 stars because of my hang up with Arisnoe. I felt like her POV was the hardest to get into since it focused not entirely on her journey but also on her friends. I was so happy when I read this book because everything I wanted to feel and get from her character Kendare gave the reader in One Dark Throne.

My love for Maribella kind of cooled of in this one. I love her fierce loyalty and I think she is the most level headed of the three sisters. I just did not connect with her as much in this one.

One Dark Throne is fantastic and even better than the first. Love, Loyalty, betrayal, battles, romance and politics. This book has so much you will never see coming. This is a must read for fans of all genres but especially fantasy fans. I can not wait until the conclusion in 2018
