Overview

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. Becoming the Crowned Queen 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. En cada generación de la Isla de Fennbirn nacen trillizas… y las tres son reinas, herederas en partes iguales de la corona, cada una poseedora de una magia codiciada. Mirabella es una elemental feroz, capaz de encender llamaradas voraces o tormentas brutales con un chasquido de dedos. Katharine es una envenenadora, alguien que puede ingerir los venenos más mortales sin nada más que un dolor de panza. De Arsinoe, una naturalista, se dice que tiene la habilidad de hacer florecer la rosa más roja y controlar al más salvaje de los animales. Pero convertirse en Reina Coronada no es únicamente una cuestión de nacimiento real. Cada hermana tiene que pelear por ello. Y no es solamente un juego en el que se gana o pierde… es vida o muerte. La misma noche en que las hermanas cumplen dieciséis años comienza la batalla.

Reviews

"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, on the English-language edition

"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, on the English-language edition

"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, on the English-language edition

"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, on the English-language edition

"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, on the English-language edition
