A dark fantasy about three sisters-triplets-each with her own magic, who were separated when young but will meet again on their 16th birthday when they will fight to the death to be queen. Alluring, sophisticated, unexpected, and original, THREE DARK CROWNS will appeal to adult readers as well as teenagers.
In 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.
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
