AfroBoricua Reads Book Reviews: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake


Summary: 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.
If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arsinoe, no matter how hard she tries, can’t make even a weed grow. The two queens have been shamefully faking their powers, taking care to keep each other, the island, and their powerful sister Mirabella none the wiser. But with alliances being formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the queens’ every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might not be the strongest…but she may be the darkest.

My Review:
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
Would I Recommend?: Yes I would definitely recommend this book
Disclosure: Won an ARC from https://t.co/AmWBnAokHC , No spoilers

I love fantasy books, they are amazing and this one just proves the genre can never go stale. Each Queen is portrayed so well that they could each carry their own stand alone novel. The romance in this novel isn’t the main focus which can happen in series especially fantasy ones, all of the Queen’s had one and they were a very nice touch to the story overall. The worst thing about this book is that it can be very slow at times, but the ending is fantastic and very fast-paced. Definitely check this book out it’s so worth it!
