Three dark sisters rise to fight. Allegiances shift. Bonds break. Secrets surface.

Mirabella has returned to the capital, seemingly under a banner of truce.

Katharine maintains her rule over Fennbirn – for now – but at huge personal cost.

Arsinoe is lost, the responsibility of stopping the ravaging mist heavy on her shoulders.

As oldest and youngest circle each other, and Katharine begins to yearn for the closeness that Mirabella and Arsinoe share, the dead queens hiss caution. They whisper that Mirabella is not to be trusted. But even they are drawn to her power …

The fate of the island lies in the hands of its queens.


OOHHH My heart! That ending… I am dead!
I have seen some mixed reviews for this epic conclusion, but I freakin’ loved it!! IMO, it was perfect and wrapped up the series really well!!

All the favourites are back! This is the fourth and final book in this amazing series. So I am going to try and keep this review brief and without spoilers!!

I absolutely adore Kendares writing, her books are easy reads with some amazing world building. I mean, she’s created a whole new island within our world!

Anyway, this book is fucking epic!!!
So much death, gore and action!

Honestly, it’s really hard to dislike any of the characters because they all have some kind of redeeming quality. But, man! some people throughout the story I just wanted to throat punch haha. I still love Mira so much though. Her strength, determination and hope never waver throughout the series! Also, P

Overall, this is such a fantastic series with amazing world building.
The characters are interesting, deep and just full of surprises!! ⁠
Five Dark Fates brings this series to a bloody finale, where no one is safe!

Three Black Witches are born in a glen,
sweet little triplets
will never be friends.


Three Black Witches, all fair to be seen
two to devour
and one to be queen

I would like to thank Pan Australia and the author for providing me with a copy of this book. This has in no way affected my views or opinions of the book or the content of my review


About the author :

Goodreads | Blog

So, I write books. The Anna Dressed in Blood duo is horror, The Goddess War trilogy is mythology, and Sleepwalk Society is contemporary, because the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum. What might be right for you, may not be right for some. Love to read, too. Fiction, philosophy, good books, bad books, because you take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have a stack of books and stuff. I mean, you’ve got to be adventurous. There’s more to life that what you’re living, so take a chance and face the wind.

There’s more coming soon like Scary Out There and THREE DARK CROWNS so don’t waste another minute on your cryin. We’re nowhere near the end.

My likes include animals, food, and nostalgia. I mean, whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paperboy, the evening TV? Used to be everywhere you look, there’s a heart, a hand to hold on to.

Anyway, I love to hear from readers so drop me a line here or at my website and we’ll talk about friends to know, and ways to grow, and how if you threw a party you would see that the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say, thank you for being a friend.

We can also talk about all the sitcom theme songs in this bio. Sha la la la.
