One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake


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, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.

In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.

I destroyed this book in a matter of hours--as I did with the first one. I don't know what it is about this series, but I can't put the books down. As soon as I start, I need to finish.

Anyway, I really liked this! It's pretty unusual that a sequel is as good as the first book, but One Dark Throne was just as enjoyable as Three Dark Crowns. I liked that Katharine was no longer the forgettable, unintimidating sister; instead, she was creepy and dark and, generally, pretty fucked up. I lived for her chapters. Arsinoe and her newly discovered talents were interesting as well, and I liked her chapters more than I did in Three Dark Crowns. I still don't care about the Jules plot, but it's something I tolerate. But Mirabella was a tad boring in this sequel. She just wasn't as active in the plot. This story is mainly about Arsinoe and Katharine.

This book had some explosive scenes and some MAJOR surprises, so now I'm even more eager for what for the next book. Hopefully, we don't have to wait too long!
