ARC Review: One Dark Thone

33640496

One Dark Throne

(Three Dark Crowns #2)

by Kendare Blake (Goodreads Author)
The battle for the crown has begun, but which of the three sisters will prevail?

With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, the elemental sister once thought to be the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.

Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must confront the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.

I. Loved. It! Ah! (Totally fangirling!) Even darker and more dangerous than the first book, this one was a thrill to read! We once again see our three Queens and their friends/family in this exciting sequel. I really didn’t have one favorite part, as there were so many beautiful moments in this one! My least favorite was the end, I mean it can’t end like that! Come on! Don’t do this to me!

Throughout the story, I could tell that something big was going to happen in this one, but I wasn’t really sure what to expect(view spoiler) I love all three queens, each for a different reason. I love Katherine’s fascination with weapons in this one, Mirabella’s elemental control, and Arsinoe’s personality and hidden ability! So it’s really hard to cheer for any of the three since I don’t want to lose any of these three powerful women.

This book goes back and looks at some of the lesser mentioned characters, while also introducing us to some new faces. I enjoyed seeing more of each sisters’ powers, while also seeing some unexpected consequences of such power. I also enjoyed seeing each of the three Queens as they tried to stay alive, and outsmart the others.
