Three Dark Crowns
Paperback | 432 pages
Acclaimed author Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns—a dark and inventive fantasy about three sisters who must fight to the death to become queen—is now available in paperback.
Becoming the Queen Crowned of Fennbirn isn’t just a matter of royal lineage…it’s about strength, skill, and survival. In every generation, a set of triplets is born: three girls, separated at birth, who must use their coveted magic in a battle that will cost two of them their lives, while the victor gets the crown. Mirabella is a fierce elemental whose power can be channeled through hungry flames or vicious storms. Katharine, a poisoner, has the deadliest of potions at her disposal and can consume them without any effect. And Arsinoe, a naturalist, has the ability to command any animal to do whatever she pleases. With powers that intense, this will be a fight to remember.
The shameful truth, though, is that Katharine and Arsinoe have yet to manifest any magic. Once the sisters turn sixteen and meet again, it will be impossible to hide—from the people of Fennbirn and from one another. However, the Arrons and Milones, the families who raised Katharine and Arsinoe respectively, won’t give up their chance at the throne without a fight. Let the battle for Queen begin.
