Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Kendare Blake returns with the highly anticipated third book in the Three Dark Crowns series! And while Arsinoe, Mirabella, and Katharine all have their own scores to settle, they aren’t the only queens stirring things up on Fennbirn Island. 

Queen Katharine has waited her entire life to wear the crown. But now that she finally has it, the murmurs of dissent grow louder by the day. There’s also the alarming issue of whether or not her sisters are actually dead - or if they’re waiting in the wings to usurp the throne.

Mirabella and Arsinoe are alive, but in hiding on the mainland and dealing with a nightmare of their own: being visited repeatedly by a specter they think might be the fabled Blue Queen. Though she says nothing, her rotting, bony finger pointing out to sea is clear enough: return to Fennbirn.  

Jules, too, is in a strange place - in disguise. And her only confidants, a war-gifted girl named Emilia and her oracle friend Mathilde, are urging her to take on a role she can’t imagine filling: a legion-cursed queen who will lead a rebel army to Katharine’s doorstep.

This is an uprising that the mysterious Blue Queen may have more to do with than anyone could have guessed - or expected.

Don't miss Five Dark Fates, the thrilling conclusion to the series, coming in September!

An unfortunate bore in what was a good series

Books 1 & 2 of this series had me at the edge of my seat, but this one was....painful to get through... most of the novel was focused on a very dull dream sequence, and lacked all of the competition, action and intrigue of the first two novels. Honestly, I was disappointed.

Hurried ending

I was really enjoying the story I feel like it ended abruptly. I hope the next book is better.

Good

I really wanted the storyline to speed up. I think she should have made it a trilogy.

Not as good as the first.

Someone said the ending was rushed and it definitely was. The story is missing depth, the new characters introduced don’t have as much breadth of character as the first book. You’re left having to read the third book (which I was going to anyway) but you could have stopped at the first book because that one ended in a perfect and satisfying way.

Slow to start. Loved the ending

I worried that this would happen with this series, if it would start to feel like the plot was dragging. But overall I enjoyed the book. It just wasn’t as good as the others.
