The battle for the crown has begun, and the Fennbirn triplets have made the stakes higher than ever in the quest to tear down each other. Katharine, the poisoner, has grown blood thirsty and strong. Arsinoe, the once weak sister, has discovered new found powers that could change the course of her life forever. And Mirabella, once thought to be the strongest sister, has grown soft and scatter-brained, haunted by the dangers that lie ahead. Only one sister can claim the throne, however some may be less willing to kill than others.
This book was such a step up from the one before it! As you may recall, while I enjoyed the setup that Three Dark Crowns provided, I wished for more action, and with the fight for the crown fully underway in this novel, I got just that! It was fiery and addictive, and I loved each of the sister's character developments.
I loved how this book dove deeper into the three girl's secrets and their mindsets. Katharine has become a full fledged villain, while the horrors of what she must do has finally gotten to Mirabella, who was once so ruthless. There was a dramatic power shift which I really liked.
I absolutely cannot wait for the third book in the series. This story is far from over and it ended on such a cliffhanger that I was so shaken by!! These girls are so well written and I have become so intrigued with their story.
Have you read One Dark Throne? What did you think?
