Another book in the three dark crowns series. I love the characters and it was a pleasure to sink back into the world. Even if it did take me a little while to remember what was going on, because it has been a while since I read the last one.
I wanted to do a longer review of this book but I don‘t want to spoil anything for anyone. I loved this series all the way through and it has been my go to recommendation to people. My favorite character changed with each book and I didn‘t get bored with any of the books (which usually happens to me with a series). I was worried I would be disappointed by the ending of this series but I definitely wasn‘t.
I loved this book and this whole series. I thought Five Dark Fates ended the series perfectly! One thing that I really liked about this series was that there were no dud books. Usually second or third books fall flat in a series but I absolutely loved every one of Kendare Blake‘s books!!!
It‘s quiet at my daycare. For once all of the kids are napping at the same time. I can‘t resist the chance to get some reading in! I need to find out what Jules Milone is up to!
I‘m up before the sun with two of my favorite things. A homemade latte and a good book! So far I am loving this book, but I‘m not sure I want the Three Dark Crowns series to end!!!
Behold my TBR pile for tomorrow‘s fall @DeweysReadathon (otherwise known as my second favorite day of the year, behind Halloween).

I very much enjoyed the final book in the Three Dark Crowns series, though the ending did leave me a bit flat. It tied up every loose end but I can‘t say it was a happy ending at all, it was dark & bloody but wasn‘t most of the series? Bk1of my #24B4Monday #readathon is finished.

I managed just over 5hrs before turning everything off & getting a few hours sleep. It‘s now 10am Friday 25th Oct & I‘m 2/3 of the way through this last novel in the Three Dark Crowns series. So far it‘s been really good! Hopefully I‘ll finish this in a few hours, then I may switch to an audiobook to rest my eyes a bit before opening another novel this afternoon. #24B4Monday #readathon #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 11points +20 PointsTotal-1,234
The 1st hour is done in my #24B4Monday #readathon, which means 5points to #TeamSlaughter! And I‘m over 100pgs into this book🙌 Off to a great start so far, have you started the readathon yet? Or are you in a different time zone. #Scarathlon #PointsTotal-1,147
It‘s 12.05am Friday 25th Oct here in Sydney so I‘m kicking off this Halloween version of the #24B4Monday #readathon with the last book in the Three Dark Crowns series by Kendare Blake. I love this series, it‘s a unique take on royal succession stories, triplet queens, each with a unique power, raised separately until they battle for the crown on their 16th birthday. Dark & brutal. #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-1,141
I have loved this whole series and this book was no exception! I really enjoyed every part of it and I‘m very sad that the series is over. If you haven‘t read this series, start with Three Dark Crowns. Three queens who are sisters who each have a special gift. They must fight to the death until one Queen is left standing to claim the crown. But there is so much more to it!

Had some #BookMail today! This #bookbuyingban is killing me, this was a preorder from months ago. There‘s so many new books I want like the illustrated Goblet Of Fire, Monstress Vol4, & special editions of both Crooked Kingdom & A Conjuring Of Light. Oh, also Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky. At least I have the last novel in the Three Dark Crowns series which fits the #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter theme. 1point #PointsTotal-135
The ending to Kendare Blakes "Three Dark Crowns" series has left me satisfied but at the same time, i'd love more!!

I was underwhelmed and disappointed by this finale. There were pacing issues throughout (similar to the other three books) and then, all the action and the finale were over too quickly.
Spoiler thoughts in the comments:
5 Stars for Five Dark Fates
What a journey this series has been! I didn‘t fully expect things to end the way they did but I‘m happy... happy may not be the best choice of words because heartbreak but it‘s a satisfying ending. I hope to the Goddess there‘s at least one novella in the works for this series, I‘m not ready to let go yet!
An end to a thrilling series! The battle for Fennbirn is underway, with Jules as a cursed legion queen, Mirabella as a peace negotiator, Arsinoe as a low magic practicer, and Katherine as a vessel for dead queens.
I couldn‘t put the book down! While I loved the action and adventure, I also liked how much of the plot was influenced by love. Love for sisters, a partner, and an island. While it wasn‘t 100% a happy ending, I think it was a good one.
Man the ending was intense and my heart was ripped out and mended and ripped out again. There‘s some major plot problems though but ughhhh sisterly love!
It‘s with a heavy heart that I must rate this book as only ‘so-so‘, & even that is being generous. It‘s “so-so” rather than “Pan” simply because I love other books in the series & Kendare Blake as a whole. All things ending up in a “most boring & frustrating” way aside, It took me “Five Long Days” to read this book when it should have taken me no more than three at the most. If you‘ve read it, please comment for discussion, but mark spoilers.
Finished the series, so now i can donate it. Had so much potential with that cast and storyline, but the writing was poor. Or maybe it was the editing. I cannot tell. Very disappointed.
Five Dark Fates 👑
Unite the Queens, Destroy the Crown ⚔️
I will forever love the cover art for this series, definitely one that needs its own special place on the top shelf!
