Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1)Publication Date: 27th September 2016

Genres: Young Adult & Fantasy

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 stomach ache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of beasts.

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's life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

The last queen standing gets the crown.

Have to say this is a very unique YA novel I have read in a while, it comes with an all original idea and the delivery of the idea is very interesting. This story is bloody and eerie all wrapped in one which is targeted at the right audience. I couldn’t decide when I was reading it that it was disturbing or not, but I liked how the author provides you a dark and uncanny story that doesn’t leave anything out.

This story is about three sisters, three queens who were born at the same time, six years after they’re birth they are separated in order to be prepared for their sixteenth birthday when they have to kill one another in order for either one of them to be the queen and Sovereign.

 This book is eerie intended for a YA read who likes dark, bloody, eerie and definitely not for the faint hearted of readers, if you think you can handle this I highly recommend that you give this book a read.
