Let’s start with the synopsis first shall we?
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.
This book was so fast paced, I devoured this whole book in less than 24 hours! I loved Three Dark Crowns so much (you can find the review for that here) so I knew I’d love One Dark Throne too, I just didn’t expect just how much I’d love it. It literally took off from the moment I opened the book, I was ready to see what happened to Katharine, how Mirabella is doing and to be reunited with my faves, Jules & Arsinoe. But maaaaan, everything has changed so so so much, with everyone.
Katharine has gone very dark and just so twisted, at times I was in awe with how awful she was, and at times I just wanted her dead. I saw her to be pitiful and showing off in a arrogant way. Arsinoe developed even further since we left off from the end of the book (with that major twist to do with her) and of course Kendare decides that wasn’t enough and to give Jules a major twist too, which now has me debating over something.
And can we all just appreciate Billy, he’s totally adorable! I loved him with Arsinoe, even when he had to go to Mirabella as part of his punishment he stays loyal to Arsinoe and I just can’t deal with how cute he was!
I just loved Camden and Braddock in this book, I want to see more of them both in the next installment (note, please can i have the book right now, thankyou)
Again, THAT ending asdfghjkl, what’s going to happen with her? Will it ever go away and improve for her? Will she keep her throne? Who’s controlling her? What’s going to happen with Jules? Like oh my gosh.
Kendare, if you ever read this .. can I have my heart back please?
