One Dark Throne - Review

About the book:

#1 New York Times bestseller!

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.

About the Author:

Kendare Blake grew up in the small city of Cambridge, Minnesota. She is a graduate of Ithaca College, in Ithaca, New York and received a Master of Arts in Creative Writing from Middlesex University in London, England. She loves to travel, is an advocate for animals, and cheats a lot when she plays Final Fantasy. Adopted from South Korea at the age of seven months, she arrived with the following instruction: "Feed her chocolate." Though not medically advisable, she and her parents are eternally grateful for this advice.

Kendare is the author of six novels: the contemporary SLEEPWALK SOCIETY, YA horror duo ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD (2011 NPR Top 5, Kirkus Top Ten), and GIRL OF NIGHTMARES (2012 Kirkus Reviews Top Ten), and the Goddess War trilogy (ANTIGODDESS, MORTAL GODS, UNGODLY). 

Coming in September 2016: THREE DARK CROWNS, the first book in a fantasy series about warring triplet queens.

Sam's Review:

Hi and welcome to another review, whereas we’ll be reviewing One Dark Throne. Just like its predecessor, Three Dark Crowns, the Fennbirn queens instantly take control of the spotlight. When the truth about Katharine and Arsinoe, and how they were switched at birth (you read the first book, right?) reaches Jules ears, she can’t believe it. If Arsinoe wins, the poisoners will be in control for another generation. And Katharine, once killed, and then returned, has become more immune to poisons, testing them mercilessly on animals. Mirabella believes that Arsinoe tried to kill her, and now hates both of her sisters. Needless to say, it’s going great for tradition. Not so great for the priestesses and Jules, who’s Legion-cursed. Will all three queens kill each other in the end? I don’t know, because this isn’t the end of the series. Yep, there’s another book coming out. Read this book to continue the heart pounding adventure. Suspenseful, romantic in places, heartbreaking in the end, and just plain enjoyable, this book gets 5 stars and two thumbs up, and subscribe, check out the link, like and enable notifications. I’ll see you next week, with yet another book. See ya!
