About the Book:
“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” 


When kingdom come, there will be one.

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.





About the Author: 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.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I love the map of Fennbirn. It flips back and forth between the sisters which I like because you meet all three girls.

Check out author's other books or related books? I have yet to but I am going to when I get caught up with this series.

Recommend this book? YES!!! 

Notes and Opinions: This good was SO good! I love Katharine. She is my queen. I think the concept of this book is so sad but the book is cool. Its similar to Hunger Games ideals. The concept of making these triplets kill each other to become queen made me want to cry because I wanted to take care of all of these little girls. The adults in the story scare me especially the prisoners. I would not want to live the life these little girls live but Blake's creation of this twisted world is fantastic. The ending was totally unexpected! This book is dark and twisty but clever.

Go Into This One Knowing: It is a dark book. It is not a happy-ever-after book. There is death and gore.
