The battle for the Crown has begun, but which of the three sisters will prevail?
With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.
In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.
So all the questions I had from the first book (read review here) were thankfully answered in this book!
The plot moves much more quickly in this book than in the first and we pick up right where the first one left off. We are right back into the action and the quickening ceremony is quickly approaching. We get to learn even more about the sisters in One Dark Throne which is hard because it makes me love them all even more and I want good things for them all (except maybe Katharine. What’s her deal anyway??) But given the dark nature of this world and this book, I don’t foresee that happening.
I was pleasantly surprised with this sequel. I am so obsessed with this story and cannot wait to read more about it! I don’t want to say too much more for fear of giving a single morsel of this delicious plot but if you haven’t read this series, pick it up IMMEDIATELY! I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂
