Waiting on Wednesday #50: ONE DARK THRONE - by Kendare Blake

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme originally hosted by Breaking the Spine and now taken over by Wishful Endings that highlights upcoming book releases we're excited to read. On my blog, I include movies as well.

Publication Date: 19th September 2017. 

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 favor 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 she can’t seem to prevent.

I didn't love the first book, but I've heard that this one is more fast-paced so I'm happy about that. (The slowness was what ruined the first book for me).

I'm also so excited to see how the Queens have changed and what's in store for them!  The first book certainly ended on an intense note.

Anyone else excited for One Dark Throne?


  1. This was my choice for Waiting on Wednesday last week. I didn't know it was going to be more fast-paced than the first novel. Now, I really can't wait to get my hands on it.

    Happy readings!

  2. I haven't read the first few books of this series yet, but it sounds interesting! Great pick!

  3. I really like your pick, I want to read the first book so bad!! A shame you didn't love it because it was too slow, but I hope this second instalment does the trick and you love it :)

    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog earlier!

  4. Ooh nice! I feel like the weirdo who didn't totally love Three Dark Crowns. I was actually a little confused with it at many points, but alas, I find I will still give this one a try before totally giving up!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. I actually hated book one so I didn't think I would read this one. :/ I got an ARC from the pub but it was unsolicited so I still don't think I will read it but the possibility is there. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fantastic day, Amy. =)

  6. I've already pre-ordered my copy of this book. I can't wait till it comes in!
    I hope we both enjoy this one :) Cant wait to see what you think.

  7. Yes!! So excited for this one! Can't wait to see where the story goes after that ending!

  8. I still need to read the first book. Too bad you didn't love it that much. Hope you enjoy this one more :)

  9. I haven't read the first but I DO want to read this series. I'm so curious.


  10. See I didn't completely love the first one either (it was a 3 star read for me because of the slowness) but that ending had me dying to know what happened next. Great pick, Amy!

  11. Oh my gosh yes this book is the BOMB.

  12. I like the overall sound of the plot but I just can't deal with slow books! If you found the first one slow I dread to think what I'd do! Nice covers though.

  13. Oooh, I am so excited about this. I actually really liked the first book although I must admit it was a bit slow
    for my liking too. But, the ending was brilliant and I am really looking forward to what happens next.

  14. Sorry I haven't gotten back until now!! I didn't read Three Dark Crowns simply because I heard things about it's slow pace. I'm sure that it works really well for some, but I generally don't like books with slower paces. I don't know whether I'll ever read the series to be honest! Depends on the reviews of the second book! I hope you enjoy this one more Amy!! :D
