Series" Three Dark Crowns #1
“Three dark queens
Are born in a glen,
Sweet little triplets
Will never be friends
Three dark sisters
All fair to be seen,
Two to devour
And one to be Queen”
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.
Katharine is a poisoner.
Mirabella is an elemental .
Arsinoe is a naturalist.
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.
