One Crowned, Two Exiled, A Revolution Rising.
The battle has been fought, blood has been spilt and a queen has been crowned, but not all are happy with the outcome.
Katharine, the poisoner queen, has been crowned and is trying to ignore the whispers that call her illegitimate, undead, cursed.
Mirabella and Arsinoe have escaped the island of Fennbirn, but how long before the island calls them back?
Jules is returning to Fennbirn and has become the unlikely figurehead of a revolution threatening to topple Katharine’s already unsteady rule.
But what good is a revolution if something is wrong with the island itself?
I feel this book suffered from middle book syndrome. It was enjoyable to read but nothing of concrete substance really happened until the very end. Clearly it has been written as a story builder, readying us for the final book in the series. This isn’t a new concept for a series but I personally enjoy series more when each book works well on its own and is its own rounded out story. I didn’t feel this way with Two Dark Reigns. I am still looking forward to the final book and think that the conclusion to this series will be epic but this book just didn’t have the same level of drama and intrigue as it’s predecessors.
