Three Dark Crowns
Three Dark Crowns | Kendare Blake
Fans of acclaimed author Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood will devour her latest novel, a dark and inventive fantasy about three sisters who must fight to the death to become queen. 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.

It is hard to pick between so-so or a good pick for this one. Basically, I had to push myself to get through this and I‘m not sure if it is simply just because I am not used to teenager problems and young adult novels anymore or if it is just hard to push through in general. However, it is a really interesting concept of 3 triplet queens born that have to battle for the throne. I will also say the ending makes me want to read the sequel.

Scochrane26 Sounds interesting 3d
Godpants I didn‘t love this book when I stared it, but the twist made me check out the next one, which I liked a lot more. I think the series is overall quite fun. 3d

I highly suggest you read this book. I will warn you that it is has a whole series, but I was drawn to it throughout the whole book. I can‘t wait to read the other books in the series and I am 99% sure this book is worth your time!

The concept of very stylized factions is growing a little old and flat for me, and because of that I have to say I‘m a little bored.

On the bright side I‘m able to invest a little in the charcters, whic is never a given in YA👌🏻

🤣🤣🤣 you guys! I finished crocheting the bear yesterday...I told my husband it looks more like a mouse-bear because the eyes are too close together. I think that, other than the eyes, it came out pretty good for my first try at amigurumi. My husband decided to keep it in his office, since I‘m not giving that one away. He has named him Gilbert. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 😂

I bounced back and forth between my print copy and an audiobook. It was ok, but I found the lack of conjunctions to be irritating and the characters sounded stilted on the audio. Interesting enough to finish, though I am unlikely to continue with the series.

Hello new series I‘m addicted to! Incredibly well written and immersive with a fascinating plot and strong female protagonists. Total win. I LOVE the characters! They are so very “alive” and 3-dimensional. I am not one to “fangirl”, but holy heck, these characters are bringing me the closest to “fangirling” and “shipping” I‘ve been since when I first read “Harry Potter”. I have VERY strong feelings for these characters 😂

LoverofLit I love these books and the three sisters! ❤👑 👑 👑 ❤ 2mo

I got to spend most of today at the Children‘s Literature Festival with a few of my students. We saw a handful of authors, but my two favorites of the day were Kendare Blake (I enjoyed Anna Dressed in Blood but haven‘t read this series yet) and Obert Skye (specifically requested by students and new to me).

JazzFeathers Wow! Book fairs are amazing. 3mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers It really was fun! This trip is organized through my school, but I‘m also trying a bit harder to look for author events on my own. 3mo

I felt that this book was really slow in the beginning, but things definitely picked up by the end. I found most of the romance to be annoying, but they are teenagers. I‘m looking forward to the next book.

4/5🌟

I was pleasantly surprise by this book. The story was unique. I like all the characters and I even enjoyed hating some of them. I like how we have the chance to read each one of the Queens perspectives, it made the story more interesting. I don't think it had the strongest plot but I still really enjoyed reading it.

Absolutely excellent. I read Blake‘s “Anna Dressed in Blood” and didn‘t care for it. My expectations for this book were low. It was terrific. Hats off to Ms. Blake. I highly recommend this book.

I‘m popping over to buy the next installment from the Kindle store.

3 and 1/2 stars.

Katharine and Jules were my favorites, but Joseph was the worst.

This is actually a lot better than I expected.
Though maybe that's why I enjoyed it, because I read it not having high expectations.

I love all the plotting and scheming.
This was just what I needed.
I hope I'll manage to find time to read the sequel really soon. ^^

This is just a part of my 3DC collection of books and swag. I am obsessed with this series...I think mainly because it got me out of a year long reading slump. If you haven't read it, you should asap!

The regular bookmark is a hand painted one by bookmarkmyheart on Etsy and I LOVE it! She is amazing...USPS lost the first ones and she did it all over again for me. The magnetic bookmark is bearlypaperco and the woodmark is from Enchanted Book Box.

I love that I gasped out loud probably three times! Ultimately, I saw this as one of those girl power/finding your own inner strength type situations, but with the badass backdrop of Fennbirn! This could easily be a movie! I want to play Katharine (but not on Thanksgiving when I look like a beached fat cat! 🐡)

A solid 4.87 ⭐️!

I love how this reads like a staged play - the location sets the scene in which our characters interact! If I were a philosophe, I‘d argue the whole nature/nurture issue (the location names setting/defining character as much as the guardian/priestess)!

Wow! Where to begin! First off, the book design from the cover to the manor siglets under the chapter headings were brilliant. Kindare (who has a fabulous first name and thus should always be referred to by said gorgeous name!) made some excellent choices here, my favorite being chaptering by location. Obviously, K has a knack for names (ha ha!) with Greavesdrake Manor being my favorite!

Three sisters (a poisoner, a naturalist, & an elemental) battle to the death for the throne. Sounds an amazing read, right? So it‘s a pity that the author chose to hinge it all around romance instead, including a very irritating love triangle.

Katherine the poisoner queen was my favourite character, but I hated Joseph. I‘ve not disliked a character this much since Angel Clare.

I was underwhelmed with this book after it promised so much. 2 ⭐️
