    [Rezi] Kendare Blake – The Oracle Queen [Three Dark Crowns]

    Klappentext Triplet queens born on the island of Fennbirn can be many things: Elementals. Poisoners. Naturalists.

This cautionary practice started long ago, with Queen Elsabet—the legendary, and last, oracle queen—whose reign was tinged with blood and horror. Paranoid, ruthless, and utterly mad, Elsabet’s mistrust led to the senseless slaying of three entire houses of innocent people.

    [Rezi] Kendare Blake – The Young Queens [Three Dark Crowns]

    [Rezi] Kendare Blake – Three Dark Crowns [Three Dark Crowns]

    Klappentext 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…
