Three Dark Crowns, by Kendare Blake
Three sisters, triplets, were born in Fennbirn, all with three different gifts. Arsinoe being a naturalist who has a close bond with animals and nature: every naturalist, when their gift is mature, has a familiar, which is an animal that they have a close bond with and understand. The bigger the famialiar, the stronger the gift.
Katharine is a poisoner, who can consume any poison and not get sick, and is also extremely skilled at poison mixing and making.
And, lastly, we have Mirabella. She is an elemental, which means she can control the weather and fire.
But there's a problem...Arsinoe and Katharine's gift aren't fully developed, while Mirabella may be one of the strongest elementals that's been alive in a while.
After their 16th birthday, the sisters have to fight each other...to the death. The last one surviving will be the queen of Fennbirn until they give birth to triplets and the process begins again.
-I loved this book! It's absolutely amazing! The writing is so detailed and dark and perfectly written, that I can just never get enough of it.
-The story went by quickly and was a fairly fast read, especially for a fantasy!
-The world was very interesting and was fairly easy to understand and quick to enjoy. The book was a bit slow during the first 50 pages, but after that, it was amazing!
-The characters are all likable and I never disliked one person's perspective. The chapters are the title of the place where the events in that chapter will take place, and are focused around one of the queens. There wasn't one perspective or place that I disliked to read about! All perspectives and locations were amazing to read!
-The only problem I had with the book was the side characters. A lot of the time, side characters are extremely important to the story, and could even be apart of a major plot twist! I felt that the side characters in this book weren't very well developed. I hate to say this, though! The side characters were hard to keep track of. Their names, their roles, things they took part in, etc. That was the only problem with the book.
My Overall Star Rating: 4/5
