Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake sounds so original! I love the idea of three heirs who have to fight each other to earn their position as queen instead of it just being handed to them. The magical elements also really intrigue me as I can never resist a good old magic book. I am super excited for this one and can’t wait until the fall!.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Author: Kendare Blake
Publication Date: September 20, 2016
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 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.
Book Quotes: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Every gift is light and dark.
No one really wishes to be a queen.
Only a king consort is fool enough to love a queen.

I can’t wait for this too! Three women fighting to the death? COUNT ME IN (sorry, just someone who likes violence in books here). xD
I don’t usually read fantasy, but I like the premise of this story. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “COMMONWEALTH”
This doesn’t sound like a book that I would normally read. This is definitely interesting.
Here’s mine: The Leaving by Tara Altebrando
Be prepared for heartbreak when you read this one! I really loved it, from the characters, the world building, everything. It was awesome. I hope you love it as much as I do ^_^

Check out my WOW
I can’t wait to read this one. It just sounds so unique and original. I am so excited to dive into it!
i haven’t read Anna in the Dress Blood series. But i love her Goddess War series. And this one, seems interesting. Wait, September? aw.. it’s too long too wait!
Ohh, I loved her Anna Dressed in Blood (still have to read sequel) but somehow I’m not sure that this book is for me.
But I hope you will really enjoy it when you read it!
I love everything I’m reading and hearing about this book! This is definitely one of my highly anticipated releases! Seeing all the ARCs for this book from BEA has me turning into Elphaba #wickedreference
This was my pick too this week! I cannot wait for it. I like that the story is centered around sisters instead of a romance. Hoping it lives up to the hype in my head 😉
This sounds really good! I think I already love it from the blurb alone!
