So I am love with this series and Kendare Blake!!
I am going to keep this review short as I don’t want to give anything away.
I know that a lot of people had issues with the pace of the first book. Well that book was a brilliant set up to dive straight into this amazing, fast paced story, good luck trying to catch your breath whilst reading this one!
All the characters that I loved and hated from Three Dark Crowns are back and, seriously, they are better than ever!!
Arsinoe is still a bad ass, although sometimes I really just feel like punching her in the face. Did she learn nothing from the Quickening?!!
Mirabella is still my favourite Queen, she is just so lovely and it is great to see her grow and bond with the other characters throughout this book.
That leaves us with Katharine, sweet, weak, innocent Kat. Well shit is about to hit the fan. I really had a love / hate relationship with her, either way she is the one of the best characters.
Special shoutout to Billy for being the best character in the book! I honestly thought in the first book that he was just going to be an annoying character, oh how wrong I was.
I will say this again, there are a lot of characters, if you are not paying attention to the story you will get lost. Thankfully the book drags you in from the start, so there is no getting bored or distracted!
So, book 1 left us with a giant cliff hanger, what the heck was even going on! This book answers all your questions, but leaves your head reeling with even more. There is action, bloodshed and betrayal. One thing that does not change with these books is the brilliant writing by Kendare Blake. Blake really knows how to hold an audience captive! I am dying for the next book already!
Overall this is a dark, fantastic read that I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

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 favour 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 that she can’t seem to prevent.
In One Dark Throne, the enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s The 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.
