Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. In it, bloggers highlight an upcoming release they are excited for. This week, my pick is:
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Release Date: September 20, 2016
In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.
But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.
The last queen standing gets the crown.
The premise for this book is so interesting. Presuming the girls have all been raised together, this fight to the death will certainly have repercussions. I’m eager to see how it all plays out!
