Ngaged with the story there is so much to love about it I also want to add that although I felt the beginning was very slow paced and there weren t that many significant intense scenes occurring the story really picked up by the nd The climax of the storyfinal cliffhanger really grasped me and I m so happy I continue with this novel to the Love for Imperfect Things end By the conclusion of the novel Inded up totally falling in love with this series and consider it a worthwhile read as a whole Overall Three Dark Crowns wasn t my favorite reading A Heart of Stone experience in the history of literature but I reallynjoyed the story and am already continuing on with the series One Dark Throne has already stepped up the game and I am so much Taking Instruction (Taboo, enthralled with the story I really can t wait to continue with this series Three Dark Crowns has an interesting premise but it manages to be insufferably boring for the first 75% I foresee many DNFs on the horizon for this bookIt s about three sisters three ueensssentially competing for the throne They Katharine Arsinoe and Mirabella Language and Linguistics each live in different parts of the landach have a different power and Divertimento each have a different group of supporters aiding them This is an invery generation there are three chosen ones kind of thing However throughout the generations only one sister can claim the throne and she must do so by murdering the other twoIn this case Katharine is a poisoner who wields deadly cocktails Arsinoe is a naturalist at one with nature and animals and not very good at it nobody Love Is a Fairy Tale expects her to win the throne Mirabella is anlemental and clearly the strongest of the three her powers by far the most developedIt sounds uite Promise at Dawn exciting but it is far too slow and uiet a telling for such a nasty premise The first three uarters are just boring They needed a shot ofxcitement Most of the book consists of the girls honing their skills in their own private locations and having flirtations with their love interests It is painfully hard to not yawn put the book down and go find something riveting to do Like watching paint dry for xampleI am not xaggerating So little happens there is no action no drama no Bangkok Wakes to Rain excitement until near thend And by that point how much do we really care I don t know about you but if I ve spent most of a book being bored out of my mind I m not going to suddenly become invested when the pacing picks upThe book flits between third person perspectives and truly none of them are interesting Arsinoe mostly wanders around being useless and watching the romance between Jules and Joseph Mirabella repeatedly plays with the The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery elements conjuringarthuakes and towers of fire Katharine is perhaps most interesting but mainly because she s dealing with scars and blisters from the latest poison she s ingested That should tell you something about the bar for Darkmere excitement in this book the highlights are when one of the characters is sick from poisoning Problem is the three ueens don t really get their hands dirty for the most part Their stories are not bloody and political they are uiet and sometimes romanticYes the pacing picks up towards thend No it wasn t Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? enough for me It might work better forxtremely patient readers who can stomach a mostly non xistent plot There are rare occasions where characters and writing can make up for very little happening but for me this is not one of themBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store.
