Three Dark Crowns When kingdom come there will be one 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
Three Dark Crowns has an interesting premise, but it manages to be insufferably boring for the first 75% I foresee many DNFs on the horizon for this book.It s about three sisters, three queens, essentially competing for the throne They Katharine, Arsinoe and Mirabella each live in different parts of the land, each have a different power, and each have a different group of supporters aiding them This is an in every generation, there are three chosen ones kind of thing However, throughout the gene [...]
really enjoyed this one, especially the second half and that ending i had to pick up book 2 IMMEDIATELY i do think you need a bit of patience going into this, because the beginning is a bit slow as we build everything up we re introduced to three different storylines and three main characters kind of four main characters actually and the world is AWESOME but complex, so it took me a while to really get a good grasp on it but overall this was a great opening to a series i really enjoyed watching [...]
I AM SHRIEKING INTERNALLY RIGHT NOW at how genius that ending was I almost called this a DNF towards the beginning because there were so many characters and I didn t know what was happening, but I m so glad I stuck with it because this story became absolutely awesome I NEED the sequel now Three Black Witches are born in a glen,sweet little tripletswill never be friends.Three Black Witches, all fair to be seentwo to devourand one to be queenThe whole story is just so delightfully creepy, intense, [...]
Do you like fantasy Do you like badass morally grey women Do you want to burn the patriarchy If so, this is the book for you.
2.5 stars Three dark sistersAll fair to be seen,Two to devourAnd one to be queen Three Dark Crowns offends me It promised me scheming sisters and political intrigue and power plays Instead I get this And this And a whole lot of this 80% of the book is the sisters Katharine, Mirabella, and Arinsoe waffling around, training, and getting acquainted with their love interests What s each island s culture How did the tradition of Triplets Hunger Games begin No fucking idea, but look, dreamy eyes The r [...]
3.5 This was incredibly hard for me to get into I found the first half to be quite boring but I just found the whole concept to be so interesting that I had to stick with it I m glad that I did because it did get better, but half of a book is a long time to not really be enjoying it.
Three dark queensare born in a glen,sweet little tripletswill never be friends.Three dark sistersall fair to be seen,two to devourand one to be Queen.This was SO much darker than I originally expected and it is GOOD The world building, the twists, the characters, the premise itself It s hard not to be pulled deep into the story Consider me invested For a first book where clearly the concept had to be set up, as well as the worldI still found there was a lot going on This just gives me hope for [...]
4.5 stars Wow this was bloody fantastic BUT.The first 35% or so was ROUGH I honestly would have DNF ed this had it not been for friends telling me to keep going I M SO GLAD I DID So if you re reading this and you get bored overwhelmed with all the names generally disinterested it WILL pick up And don t worry about memorizing all the character names who is who Basically we have three triplets They are separated at a young age and each raised in separate parts of the kingdom island thing Each of t [...]
UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT AT ITS FINEST Wow Wow Let me start off by saying that this is going to be messy and probably inarticulate But just go with it Had to let it out Alright How does one express rage in just a few words Because in the last quarter of this book fine, all I had to constantly take breaks to calm and compose myself because I was too LIVID and could feel my blood boiling and chest pain arising Then why, you may ask did I continue Because 1 I hate DNFing books 2 I honestly kept hoping [...]
No one really wishes to be a queen Oh my, I loved this This book seems to be very polarizing on my feed, and from people I love, trust, and have similar reading tastes as, so I was a little apprehensive going in I read that first chapter with my mouth open the entire time Instantly drawn in, immersed, and in love Most of you probably know the synopsis of this book, but it will still bring me immense joy to tell those few who might not know Basically, this story is set in a world with an amazing [...]
This was not good and yet was not bad either I m just going to sit here and admit I have no idea how I feel Like my 1 reaction when I closed it was I NEED THE NEXT BOOK Because holy heck to that cliffhanger But overall it was really dry and slow and there were way way too many POVs.L I K E S I thought the world was really interesting Like we have this island and this psycho queen and the royal lie always has three triplets who then have to fight to the death for the throne NICE They re raised se [...]
Three dark sistersAll fair to be seen,Two to devourAnd one to be Queen well that was misleading and disappointing finally im done typing out this longass rant im conflicted because IDK if i should give this 2 stars LOOK I M SORRY I REALLY WANTED TO LOVE THIS, I REALLY DID but it was really bad I am so surprised I didn t like this book because this kind of books are my kind of books I am so pissed and honestly this review will just be messy paragraphs of me talking about how disappointed I am The [...]
My September Owlcrate Box I wasn t sure I was going to read this book, but I am now of course I didn t like much of anything about this book but the ending And NOT because it was the ending, I mean the ending was really good I will get the next book from the library just to see what happens because some things that I thought might be happening did but in a different way which only makes sense to me AND there is the note of revenge I love revenge and this person deserves revenge REVENGE Sorry, a [...]
4.5 stars.I loved this Please let Joseph die in the next book.
Firstly, I have to say that I really did not jell with this book It took me a moment to get used to the POV it was written in and also, didn t really understand what was happening in the first three chapters, then when I realised that it was written from different perspectives every chapters i GOT IT P.s that is not the books fault, completely my fault I really did enjoy this novel, the ending was brilliant My only issues was it could be slow at times, and not much happened in the middle of the [...]
How could a book with such a promising premise fall so flat This is a stupid question and by now, having been a member for seven years, I ought to know better The thing is, right, that the first chapter was absolutely mesmerizing In fact, Katharine remained the only character I was even mildly interested in for the rest of the book But sometimes I like to look at it this way if I were a literary agent, and this book came into my query inbox, and the author had attached the first five pages, then [...]
While I was reading this I had several people tell me they were hesitant to read it because of the mixed reviews and wanted to know what my thoughts were, so I will try to address whether or not I think you will enjoy this book.It has a slow start, and I think that s why a lot of people struggle getting into it There are 3 POVs, set in different locations, with different politics, side characters, and types magic to learn You essentially get 3x the introduction It did feel slow at first to me, b [...]
Three dark queensAre born in a glen,Sweet little tripletsWill never be friendsThree dark sistersAll fair to be seen,Two to devourAnd one to be Queen When I first heard about the premise of this book, I instantly knew I was going to enjoy it because it sounded right up my alley Basically, there are three dark sisters who have to try to kill each other after their sixteenth birthday because only one of them can be queen DUN DUN DUUUUN Tell me this doesn t sound like the coolest story ever Katharin [...]
DNF AT PAGE 202 Review to come THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Actually, I didn t want to dnf this but I just can t bear reading it any I quite enjoyed reading it, the plot was pretty good but sometimes I somehow just felt bored with this book and the characters weren t annoying or boring They were all pretty good to read for me except Joseph and he s also the reason I didn t finish this book I didn t finish this book because of the love triangles I HATE love triangles so much and before reading t [...]
Update on this The second book came out and I just have no great desire to actually read it, so I probably just won t continue with this series, especially since it s being dragged out longer now Was that it I thought I was in store for a really exciting end section after how slow most of the book was, but I am underwhelmed.I feel conflicted about this I really liked the concept of this book, and the world is really interesting I didn t want to dnf it despite the parts that felt pointless and dr [...]
3.25 5 but a FUN 3.25 This book was far from perfect, but hell if it wasn t a good time And after two not so fun reads, I needed it emmareadstoomuch.wordpressDid I like any of the characters Uh, not totally In fact, I hated a bunch of them I would physically fight Mirabella and Joseph if I was ever given the chance, and I would like roughly 50% of the characters to line up so I can efficiently slap each of them across the face Most of them were super flat I d say all of them except Arsinoe, Jule [...]
Kendare Blake s my go to author for vivid descriptions, intimidating plotlines, and shocking surprises She delivered all three of those in Three Dark Crowns, but the pacing and romance were so off that I couldn t fall in love with the book in the way I wanted toINGS THAT MADE ME POOP RAINBOWS1 The writing was so easy to get into Kendare Blake has a way of writing novels in a way that feels dark, but is still very casual and easy to read She has these gorgeous descriptions that aren t boring to r [...]
Having loved Kendare s other series, I was beyond excited to get my hands on this one.First off, love love loved that we got POV from all three of the sisters It made it so easy to relate to their turmoil and the situation as a whole Because we got to see and know everything, it definitely made for some delicious tension and screaming while reading.I don t want to say too much and ruin the reading experience for anyone else, so I ll just say that this is one of the best roller coasters I ve ever [...]

Have you ever come across a book where just the blurb on the inside cover can make you feel like this And then the premise goes largely unfulfilled by the author and you re left feeling like this Yeah, that s how I felt reading this Lets be real here This book promise dark fantasy, magic, and a fight to the death between three sisters, and what we really end up getting is heteronormative romance stories masquerading as fantasy The plot of the three sisters meeting and having an epic show down i [...]
