Three Dark Crowns

TitleThree Dark Crowns
AuthorKendare Blake
Call NumberMcNaughton
Location1st Floor McNaughton
RatingSomewhat Recommended
Book ReviewMagical matriarchal society that pits young royals against each other sound great, but this book feels like just a warm-up for the sequel. So much focus on world building and establishing character bonds. The young queens are weak and pretty much only preparing for the anticipated year long death match without ever truly demonstrating their ruthlessness or power. It's easy to get lost in the alphabet soup of names and places as different characters across the kingdom narrate every chapter. Bit too much romance between characters you don't truly care about. If you can get into lore then this is a fine read, but leaves a lot to be desired.
