    Three Dark Crowns has an interesting premise, but it manages to be insufferably boring for the first 75% I foresee many DNFs on the horizon for this book.It s about three sisters, three queens, essentially competing for the throne They Katharine, Arsinoe and Mirabella each live in different parts of the land, each have a different power, and each have a different group of supporters aiding them This is an in every generation, there are three chosen ones kind of thing However, throughout the generations, only one sister can claim the throne, and she must do so by murdering the other two.In this case, Katharine is a poisoner who wields deadly cocktails Arsinoe is a naturalist at one with nature and animals and not very good at it nobody expects her to win the throne Mirabella is an elemental and clearly the strongest of the three, her powers by far the most developed.It sounds quite exciting, but it is far too slow and quiet a telling for such a nasty premise The first three quarters are just boring They needed a shot of excitement Most of the book consists of the girls honing their skills in their own private locations and having flirtations with their love interests It is painfully hard to not yawn, put the book down, and go find ...

    2.5 stars Three dark sistersAll fair to be seen,Two to devourAnd one to be queen Three Dark Crowns offends me It promised me scheming sisters and political intrigue and power plays Instead I get this And this And a whole lot of this 80% of the book is the sisters Katharine, Mirabella, and Arinsoe waffling around, training, and getting acquainted with their love interests What s each island s culture How did the tradition of Triplets Hunger Games begin No fucking idea, but look, dreamy eyes The romance itself isn t good either Each sister has her own POV and love interest, but because of the multiple POVs, none of them are fleshed out Other than the sisters, side characters like Jules and Natalia have point of view chapters, too It s a curious mixture of too much going on yet nothing happens While I m glad each sister queen has the chance to tell her side of the story, the feeling is dampened when it becomes a detriment rather than an advantage view spoiler Josep...

    3.5 stars I struggled with this start to a new series, but I m currently reading the sequel and am SERIOUSLY enjoying it, so it was worthwhile for me to push through the first novel I will always admit when I feel choosing the audio version of a book may have impacted my reading experience I restarted the first few hours of Three Dark Crowns about four times because I just could not keep track of the story And that was my biggest issue with this story I just could not get engaged There s a HUGE cast, a wide variety of perspectives, and many different locations and I struggled to keep everything at the forefront of the story while listening, but that s not automatically a bad thing I feel it is a personal thing my reading experience which caused me to have an extremely difficult time staying present in the story and remembering all the details and it s possible the audio version had an impact on that.I am also afraid my expectations may have influenced my reading experience as well I believed Three Dark Crowns was going to be an epic battl...

    UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT AT ITS FINEST Wow Wow Let me start off by saying that this is going to be messy and probably inarticulate But just go with it Had to let it out Alright How does one express rage in just a few words Because in the last quarter of this book fine, all I had to constantly take breaks to calm and compose myself because I was too LIVID and could feel my blood boiling and chest pain arising Then why, you may ask did I continue Because 1 I hate DNFing books 2 I honestly kept hoping that things would change by the end and that maybe, just maybe, my perspective would also change along with it Neither did The book had an interesting premise that was executed so, so poorly Horribly First and foremost, can we talk about how mind numbingly BORING it was How could a book fail to pick up three quarters in Ahhh, and the gift that kept on giving The horrible, atrocious and petulant cast of characters who ruined everything EVERYTHING 1 I fucking HATED HATED Joseph with a livid passion why is it that we NEVER see accountability in YA Fantasy He was an irredeemable shithead through and through 2 I grew to HATEEE Mirabella or whatever her name is Her ...

    4.5 stars Wow this was bloody fantastic BUT.The first 35% or so was ROUGH I honestly would have DNF ed this had it not been for friends telling me to keep going I M SO GLAD I DID So if you re reading this and you get bored overwhelmed with all the names generally disinterested it WILL pick up And don t worry about memorizing all the character names who is who Basically we have three triplets They are separated at a young age and each raised in separate parts of the kingdom island thing Each of them is tailored to have one type of magic When they reach 16, they are all supposed to face each other off with said magic, and whoever wins gets the throne Not only are they supposed to try and kill each other, they try to gain supporters and win suitors to help them in this Then, the surviving queen will choose a suitor who will act as king consort She will have said triplets thanks to the curse on the island , be sent away, rinse and repeat Pretty depressing world, if you ask me The general vibe is pretty dark and bleak, so be prepared Very Minor spoilers below Anyway, I went into this fully expec...

    3.5 This was incredibly hard for me to get into I found the first half to be quite boring but I just found the whole concept to be so interesting that I had to stick with it I m glad that I did because it did get better, but half of a book is a long time to not really be enjoying it.

    Three dark queensare born in a glen,sweet little tripletswill never be friends.Three dark sistersall fair to be seen,two to devourand one to be Queen. This was SO much darker than I originally expected and it is GOOD The world building, the twists, the characters, the premise itself It s hard not to be pulled deep into the story Consider me invested For a first book where clearly the concept had to be set up, as well as the world..I still found there was a lot going on This just gives me hope for the second where I have a feeling there will be a lot action and excitement Three Dark Crowns follows a set of triplets, all three queens heirs to the crown, though only one will reign All three born with a different gift At the age of six, they are separated to be raised by different families each of their same respective gift giving each a completely different upbringing The sisters don t see each other again until they turn sixteen, when they will have to kill each other leaving only one to be the ruling queen of Fennbirn Every generation a new set of triplets is born This is how it has always been.Katharine is a poisoner She s supposed to be able to consume excruciating amounts of poison without any side effects The problem is Katharine s gift is quite weak The Arrons have been poisoning her as often as possible to try and build...

    No one really wishes to be a queen Oh my, I loved this This book seems to be very polarizing on my feed, and from people I love, trust, and have similar reading tastes as, so I was a little apprehensive going in I read that first chapter with my mouth open the entire time Instantly drawn in, immersed, and in love Most of you probably know the synopsis of this book, but it will still bring me immense joy to tell those few who might not know Basically, this story is set in a world with an amazing matriarchy, where a queen will always give birth to multiple girls For the most part, it will be triplets, each with different powers, who will be sent away to live among people who have also developed their powers Yet, once these sisters turn sixteen, a battle will begin which only ends when only one of the girls are alive and the other two sisters dead This lone triplet will be the new queen of Fennbirn This world is gloriously feminist, and I loved each point of view from the different islands And the writing Beautiful, lyrical, genius And I fell so very in love with each sister, easily, and happily These characters are honestly a tier above almost every YA character I ve ever read And again, this was such an amazing journey and I hope people give this book a shot, despite the mixed reviews And th...
