As with Three Dark Crowns, Kendare Blake does not let us down with the second installment of this series, One Dark Throne. Yet the journey is still to be continued; and I fear it will get far worse for the three queens before it gets better.

The book review:
Commencing exactly where the first book left us, One Dark Throne is a suspenseful and deadly tale of war, survival and sisterhood. What stood out in this book was the in-depth character development, emphasized by Blake’s wonderful writing.
As the book slowly came to an end, I found myself wishing for a ripe future for all three queens. But one queen’s fait remains uncertain: Queen Katherine, the undead queen. What will become of her and her conquest to track down her two sisters? Can she truly be saved?
And what will become of Jules, the naturalist who was cursed with the war gift? Now that she has left, grieving over Joseph, it is hard to imagine how her and Arsinoe will survive without each other.
All in all, One Dark Throne definitely had the second book FUNK. Though it did have a slow start, the build-up was suspenseful and kept my on my toes. A lot of questions from book one were answered, while a lot of new ones arose with the continuation of the adventurous tale of the three sisters. I am looking forward to read the third book and can’t wait to see what happens next.
What did you think? I would love to read other people’s opinion on this book!
