Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns #3)

I’m enjoying this series more as it goes on, I think. I feel as if every novel adds a twist or two, solves a riddle or two, and amps up the intensity. I’d love to see Blake’s notes on the history of the queens. I know the losing queens are basically erased from history, but […]
