The dark crowns

By Kendare Blake

ISBN 9781509804559



I absolutley loved Anna dressed in blood so I am certainly looking forward to this new book by Kendare Blake. Her writing grips you and drags you in to her worlds. Take a look at her website too with a very cool front page illustration. Suitably creepy and intriguing.

“Three dark queens
are born in a glen,
sweet little triplets
will never be friends

Three dark sisters
all fair to be seen,
two to devour
and one to be Queen

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.

But becoming the Queen Crowned 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.”

Girl of nightmares
by Kendare Blake

“Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl gets sucked into Hell story”.

I am so excited about this book. I didn’t even know there was going to be a sequel. I think I actually gave a squeal of delight when I read there would be a new book in March. I loved the first book Anna dressed in blood which was a great ghost story with blood and gore, murder and mayhem. Cas the ghost hunter, and Anna, the ghost. (See my review for the first book on the reviews tab).
Anna is a ghost but that’s okay – sort of. She had her reasons for what she did and the murders she committed. It came at a price though and Anna ended up in Hell.
In Girl of nightmares ghost hunter, Cas Lowood is determined to rescue Anna and bring her back. Guilt or something more! But in order to rescue Anna they must face even more danger than before. Really can’t wait. Roll on March!
