#64 - Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crowns - Kendare Blake

It was weird. I loved this book; it was really macabre and gloomy. I was not expecting that at all but it was a great surprise.


Three Dark Crowns is the story of triplets Queens, one poisoner, one elemental and one naturalist. They live apart until they turn sixteen, when each Queen will have to kill her sisters to become the one true Queen (and then have triplets as well.)


The idea of this book was really unique and I love this strange Island full of magic. The story begins when the triplets are almost sixteen and you do not know anything about this world. I love that we discover the world bit by bit but I think it would have been better to just have a little more context at the beginning , I felt a bit lost.


I love all the characters and all the Queens are really different while being similar as well. Queen Katharine was definitely my favourite! The other characters were nice but really clichés, but in a good way.


As for the pacing, what a race! It was really easy to read and I did not want to put it down, I think I could have read it in one sitting if I had had the time at the moment.


The sequel is already out and I can’t wait to put my hands on it, the ending left me hanging…


I definitely recommend this book is you are in the mood for something different.
