I wanted to know the history behind the series and this actually makes me like people in the book. It also makes me want a whole book about Caragh.

Satisfying novella that gave more insight into this series and answered a few questions. I have a feeling that I‘m not going to love the entire series but it is definitely the most fun I‘ve had read YA in a long time. I am so picky now with YA; this is a rare exception to my tendency to steer away from it.

Bette Yay! Just scooped this up at B & N...I found the 2nd one disappointing so glad to know this is good. 1y

When Haku was a baby he was a dark brown color but with each shed he's gotten more and more orange 😍

Still currently reading Emergency Contact but I think I'll finish The Young Queens first since I'm almost done with it ^^ #petsoflitsy

LiterRohde Bearded Dragons are the best. Unfortunately mine got sick and stopped eating.

A fun novella about the queens before we meet them in the first book. No real new information but it is fun to be back in the world.

This is a good collection of stories with hinted at events, but I feel like it could have been better. It‘s not like Assassins Blade to Thrne of Glass where you gain SO much more—these definitely aren‘t can‘t miss, though I still enjoyed them. 3*

This short ‘Three Dark Crowns‘ novella was a fun read! ☺️ It gave lots of backstory on the characters and tied things together nicely. This book also answered some questions about Queen Katharine that were previously left up in the air. I felt it did a good job explaining how things came to be, prior to the first book. Can‘t wait for ‘The Oracle Queen‘ and ‘Two Dark Reigns‘!!😄📚❤️ #ThreeDarkCrowns #QueenKatharine #KendareBlake

I like novellas in a series that I‘m working through: enter the world for a while, learn some backstory, and have mysteries solved. This one does all three well. It‘s listed as book “0.5” in the Three Dark Crowns series, but I wouldn‘t recommend reading it until after One Dark Thrown because there are references to basically all of the series‘ twists/spoilers.

Great little read and I‘m anxiously awaiting the Oracle Queen novella and third book.

GondorGirl Ooo! I love when authors give us collections like this! I live for extra backstory! 2y
LitLogophile Me too @GondorGirl ! This one is great too because it‘s a prequel, but it talks about big reveals from the series that happened before the story takes place. Makes the world more real. 2y
Zelma I just bought this one on my nook and am excited to read it. 2y
LitLogophile Oo it‘s really good, I think you‘ll enjoy the first chapter 👀 @Zelma 2y
Zelma @LitLogophile now I just need to replace my dying nook so I can actually read it. 🙄😄 2y

I love this series so much! I'm so invested in these characters that I can hardly stand it. 😅 Kendare Blake just keeps winning me over. This novella answered a lot of my questions and whetted my appetite for the next installment of the series.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

LitLogophile I‘m reading One Dark Throne right now and have this on library hold! Love this series 😊 2y
EchoLogical @LitLogophile Have I already asked which queen you‘re rooting for? I‘m rooting for Kat but young Mirabella has also become a favorite. Lol 2y
LitLogophile Well, I‘m about 70% done with ODT and I am just so confused as to who to root for. I was a big Kat supporter but I‘m not really sure what‘s going on with the whole undead thing, so I‘m going to have to say I‘m cheering for the real poisoner queen, Arsinoe 😂 2y

EchoLogical @LitLogophile She is pretty awesome. I can‘t help but wonder what‘s up with Jules, though. 🤔 2y
LitLogophile I know, right?! That whole family is questionable. I guess we‘ll find out eventually 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
HOTPock3tt The cover of this is GORGEOUS!! 😍now I just HAVE to check out this series!! 👍 2y
EchoLogical @HOTPock3tt I'm a huge fan of Kendare Blake so I'm a little biased but it's amazing. The first book started off slow but I promise it's worth it to keep reading. 2y
HOTPock3tt I just went to my library‘s website and put a hold on the first book! Lol! 😎thanks for the recommendation. I will definitely check it out! 2y
EchoLogical @HOTPock3tt Yay! Let me know what you think! 2y
HOTPock3tt I sure will!! ☺️ 2y
HOTPock3tt I didn‘t get to tell you! I read both the first and second book and omg!!! 😍it has become one of my fave series! It was every bit as awesome as you said. Thank you soo much for recommending it ❤️Gonna check out the novellas too while I wait for the third book to come out!!! 😎🎉 1y
EchoLogical @HOTPock3tt So glad you liked it! Which queen are you rooting for? I was #TeamKat because she really needs a win but the others are starting to win me over. 1y
HOTPock3tt #TeamKat all the way!! ❤️I love the fact that she went from sweet girl to badass!! 😎Mirabella kind of gets whiny and starry eyed to me and arisone is just a bit too uninterested in anything to care. Katharine has been my fave from the start, and I love it that she can even throw a poison arrow/crossbow now!! 👍 (edited) 1y

Finished this short prequel around the Three Dark Crown series. I loved how it cleared up a lingering question regarding Katharine‘s gifts in the opening pages! Overall the story was insightful tho it left me wanting much more!

Coco @ReadingsByTheC I finished! I found myself surprised at liking Natalia more! 2y
ReadingsByTheC @Coco Me too. I can only imagine what would have happened to Kat if she hadn't been around. What did you think about Madrigal? 2y
Coco Madrigal opened up a whole slew of new questions. I didn‘t realize she was gone to the mainland for that long. Had they mentioned that in the other books? I liked her a little in book 1&2 bc she seemed so keen on helping Arsinoe but she seems malicious now! And poor Caragh 😩 @ReadingsByTheC (edited) 2y

EchoLogical @coco @ReadingsByTheC I just finished and I‘m devastated all over again. I definitely like Mirabella a lot more but I‘m still #TeamKatharine 😭 2y
ReadingsByTheC @EchoLogical @Coco Yes, Katharine definitely has gotten the short end of the stick all around. I just want her to have some happiness, poor thing. Maybe we can all do a buddy read when the 3rd book comes out in the fall. 😊 2y
EchoLogical @ReadingsByTheC I‘m in! I‘m not the best buddy reader though because I get ahead of myself and finish before schedule if the book‘s really good. 😅 2y
ReadingsByTheC @EchoLogical I totally know what you mean. 😅 2y
Coco Katharine‘s story is so much sadder knowing that she was never meant to be with the cruel poisoners 😩!! I‘m definitely down for a buddy read!!!! @ReadingsByTheC @EchoLogical !! 2y

I enjoyed this prequel novella to the Three Dark Crowns series. It answered a couple of questions but gave me some more. It also increased my dislike of Madrigal. I need more of her backstory though. Looking forward to the next one in April. What did you think @Coco ?

Coco I‘m still reading (50% through)! I just passed the mention of the Blue Queen tho and very curious about what that is exactly!! 2y
ReadingsByTheC @Coco oh okay, I won't say too much then. 😊 The Blue Queen though is when there are four babies born, the 4th is automatically supposed to become queen and the other three are supposed to be drowned immediately. I think they talked about that a little in one of the other books, but they didn't go into it too much. At least not that I remember. 2y

I read the whole thing in one sitting and absolutely loved reading about the queens before they were taken! It really brought out their personalities and how they developed and showed how the allegiances wound up as they did. It also gave some more info about one of the series‘ biggest twists and confirmed one of my theories as well! I‘m even more excited for book 3 now!!

This was also my chance to use my little Kobo mini again!

I‘m glad for this little filler book. It made me have some compassion for Mira, whom I hated all throughout Three Dark Crowns. I felt sorry for Katherine, who I can‘t bring myself to hate no matter what she does. And it only strengthens my love for Arsinoe ❤️
Also it helped me to surpass my reading challenge by one book 😊

EchoLogical SAME! I literally just finished writing the same things on another post: I don‘t hate Mirabella as much and I‘m still pulling for Kat. 😭 2y

GREAT prequel. The story fits seamlessly with the existing books, filling in the blanks in many spots where I craved more details and more background.
None of it is of vital importance to understand the plots of the existing duology, and these details would have very little significance to anyone not familiar with the books and might even bore them, so I wouldn‘t recommend anyone read it before.
But fans of the series should absolutely grab this!

This little glimpse into the childhood of the queens gave me this fix I needed until the next book comes. I feel like I know them better now and understand their personalities even more. Great little novella.
