Calling all fantasy book nerds: THREE DARK CROWNS from Kendare Blake is your next hauntingly terrific fantasy read, arriving in bookstores September 20th. What’s so great about this book? For starters, it’s about three sisters – triplets, to be exact—who are born with magical powers. Separated at birth, each sister is trained to develop their deadly powers until their 16th birthday, when they will be forced to fight to the death.
Pause on that. Forced to fight EACH OTHER to the death. Dark AF, Kendare.
Of course, things aren’t quite as they seem – alliances are formed, betrayals take place, and revenge haunts their motives. Only one thing is for certain: the last queen standing gets the crown (brb, getting a blanket because I just got the CHILLS).
If that doesn’t get you, this creepy, ominous poem will put you in your place:
Three dark queens
are born in a glen,
sweet little triplets
will never be friends
Three dark sisters
all fair to be seen,
two to devour
and one to be Queen
Check out the trailer below for the full eerie effect but take our word – don’t watch it alone.
What did you think of the trailer? Will you be joining these triplets on their journey to the throne September 20th when Three Dark Crowns goes on sale?!
