Three Dark Crowns – Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crowns
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Three sisters, triplets are each born with a power. Katharine is a poisoner, able to consume the deadliest toxins with no harm. Mirabella is an elementalist, able to call storms of rain and lightning. Arsinoe is a naturalist, able to bloom flowers and call animals. Only one may be queen and she must kill her sisters to achieve it.

When reading the description of the book I personally came to an opinion about what I thought the characters would be like. But Kendare Blake completely flipped my perceptions about who I expected would be my favorite character. The book was intriguing to the last but not completely surprising. I don’t want to spoil the plot but one of the reveals at the end was something I had come to the conclusion much earlier was probably what was affecting the sisters. I found that another reveal at the end was unexpected. So you don’t go through the book knowing what’s going to happen in this series right from the start. It’s well-written and doesn’t have too much foreshadowing.

The premise is fascinating, the world building is fairly good but I wish there was a little more character development. Overall, I would definitely recommend this series to fans of fantasy novels with royalty, conflict or magic.
