Fans of acclaimed author Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood will devour Three Dark Crowns, the first book in a dark and inventive fantasy series 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.

Don't miss Five Dark Fates, the thrilling conclusion to the series!

 

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Praise for this book

"A brutal and inventive fantasy that is as addictive as it is horrifying." - Marissa Meyer

"Full of mystery, intrigue, and deadly girls I wouldn't dare cross, Fennbirn is a darkly magical world I'm both drawn to and frightened by. In short, this is a book I could linger in for months, with three girls I am rooting for with all my heart." - Megan Shepherd

"I loved this book. Blake's Three Dark Crowns is hypnotic, twisting, and beautiful...as satisfying as a drop of poison in an enemy's cup." - April Genevieve Tucholke
