Image of One Dark Throne (Three Dark Crowns)

This Three Dark Crowns sequel is as intense as its predecessor, as Kat’s ferocity, Arsinoe’s determination and Mirabella’s courage create a psychological and physical battlefield that will captivate the reader. The cliffhanger assures that the bloodletting will continue, but the hope that accompanies an unlikely alliance and a narrow escape balances out the fear in this fantastic tale of sibling rivalry.

Katharine returns with a vengeance, terrifying and impressing those who used to look down on her frailty. She is determined to become queen no matter the cost, while two men vie to be her consort. Armed with the truth of their mother’s actions long ago, Arsinoe is tempted by a chance to run from her fate, while Mirabella, once considered the most likely candidate for the crown, challenges one of her sisters to a deadly duel. One queen is crowned, with a trail of carnage in her wake. (HARPERTEEN, Sep., 464 pp., $18.99, HC, 14 & Up)
