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, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.
In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.
Why can’t everyone just be happy LIKE WHYYYY
REALLY. TELL ME.
even though it was our idiocy on my part, I spent THREE DARK CROWNS and ONE DARK THRONE just wanting EVERYONE TO BE FREAKING HAPPY. LIKE OMG. obviously that’s stupid because you can tell from the beginning that not everyone’s going to be happy, and even in other books not everyone gets to be happy but sheeesh I just wanted all my preciouses to be happy.
So somehow through sheer and utter genius, Kendare has made it absolutely impossible to hate anyone in this story, I LOVE EVERYONE OKAY.
Ike I tried to hate Katherine but THEY’RE ALL SO COMPLEX THAT ITS LIKE I CAN’T HATE YOU ITS NOT YOUR FAULT THAT YOU’RE THAT WAY OMG. (If you can’t tell yet, I’m going to be spending a ton of time exercising my right to a caps lock button)
Also the ships? I AM HERE FOR IT YASS. so many ships. I love them so much I can’t even right now.
So THREE DARK CROWNS was a little dark but this book just jumped in and was so dark and I AM HERE FOR IT YASSSS. It was deliciously dark. But like complex too. You never knew what was going to happen next and it was AHMAZINGG.
ever heard of second book blues? Hahahaha this book had none of that. It grabbed THREE DARK CROWNS by the throats and smashed it up and TOOK THAT FREAKING CROWN. I probably need several more days to properly process what the freak just happened but I THINK I LOVE THIS BOOK MORE THAN THREE DARK CROWNS IDK IDK.
I feel like THREE DARK CROWNS spent a lot of time setting up the characters and the story and the world, whereas ONE DARK THRONE was able to dive in and murder me with feels and amazingness. It didn’t have to take time to set things up.
I feel like THREE DARK CROWNS was setting up a maze of dominoes, and ONE DARK THRONE was all the dominoes falling.
Have I mentioned how FREAKING GOOD this book is yet? Like how. TEACH ME YOUR SECRETS I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO WRITE THIS GOOD. everything in this book was just amazing, the plot, the world, the characters…. A freaking +. I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW
I just. I can’t even word all my feels. This book was a masterpiece of darkness, love, and heart-pounding twists. I’m going to go cry now bye.
