Fans of acclaimed author Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood will devour Three Dark Crowns, the first book in a dark and inventive fantasy series about three sisters who must fight to the death to become queen.

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.

Don't miss Five Dark Fates, the thrilling conclusion to the series

Reviews

"Readers will be riveted by Blake's ingenious world-building, stunning developments of main and supporting characters, and spiraling tensions. Highly recommended for fans of fantasy action thrillers with strong female leads, such as Victoria Aveyard's 'Red Queen' and Sarah J. Maas's 'Throne of Glass' series."--School Library Journal
"Full of mystery, intrigue, and deadly girls I wouldn't dare cross, Fennbirn is a darkly magical world I'm both drawn to and frightened by. In short, this is a book I could linger in for months, with three girls I am rooting for with all my heart."--Megan Shepherd, New York Times bestselling author of The Cage series
"Blake is a sure hand with complicated and intricate plots, and if that's not enough to make readers stick around for the next installment, the cliffhanger ending certainly will."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Blake establishes myriad side plots and relationships, builds complex characters, and leaves plenty of compelling avenues to explore in future books."--Publishers Weekly
★ "The opener to a pitch-black epic fantasy series. Blake has constructed an insular, matriarchal society from convincing intimate details, vivid, complicated characters, [and] sumptuous, poetic prose. Gorgeous and bloody, tender and violent, precise, and passionate; above all, completely addicting. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
★ "With exquisite world building and luminous detail, this is high fantasy at its best. The magic is fierce and the plot intensely twisted, but at this novel's dark heart beats a story about sisterhood, the unbreakable bonds of family, and ties that bind enough to kill."--Booklist (starred review)
"Three Dark Crowns is a brutal and inventive fantasy that is as addictive as it is horrifying. I can't begin to guess the fates of these three remarkable sister-queens, but I'm salivating like poisoners at a feast to find out what will happen next."--Marissa Meyer, New York Times bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles
"I loved this book. Blake's Three Dark Crowns is hypnotic, twisting, and beautiful...as satisfying as a drop of poison in an enemy's cup."--April Genevieve Tucholke, author of Wink, Poppy, Midnight
