    Generally speaking, I'm just not really a fan of this trend where seemingly every second series is complemented by one or more novellas. I'd much rather this information were integrated into the actual book(s) than published as a separate work. While this is still my opinion, I do, h...

    This was so much fun, I'm so glad I decided to pick it up! I love this world SO much. This novella definitely added some more dimensions to it, and I'm so happy about that! This was great! Do I think this is a necessary read for the series? At this point, no. I think it's a fun adde...

    SO. This book is set before the start of Three Dark Crowns, my favorite YA book that I read in 2017, and I demolished it in like an hour. I would recommend reading it if you, like me, CANNOT WAIT to get back to Fennbirn, but otherwise nothing really *happens* and we don't learn anythin...

    What an emotional read. Wow definitely recommend this prequel novella if you liked the other books. ...

    ?No fighting.? Mirabella reaches for a length of black ribbon. ?This is our last day together.? ?But we will see each other sometimes. At festivals,? says Arsinoe. ?We will see one another when we are all grown up,? Mirabella corrects her. ?That is what Willa said. ...

    This was a really fun novella. I loved seeing the princesses as young girls. Their love for one another was so pure. They were so pure. Reading this made me even more excited to read One Dark Throne! ...

    Perfection! The only improvement possible would be to make it a full novel. Bravo! ...

    I loved this book and can't wait to read the second installment. It's a darkish fairy tale with a heavy dose of The Hunger Games. ...

    This is a GREAT prequel. The story fits seamlessly with the existing books, filling in the blanks in many spots where most readers probably wondered ?what happened there?? and craved more details and more background. None of it is of vital importance to understand the plots of ...

    SO. This book is set before the start of Three Dark Crowns, my favorite YA book that I read in 2017, and I demolished it in like an hour. I would recommend reading it if you, like me, CANNOT WAIT to get back to Fennbirn, but otherwise nothing really *happens* and we don't learn anythin...

    This was so much fun, I'm so glad I decided to pick it up! I love this world SO much. This novella definitely added some more dimensions to it, and I'm so happy about that! This was great! Do I think this is a necessary read for the series? At this point, no. I think it's a fun adde...

    SO. This book is set before the start of Three Dark Crowns, my favorite YA book that I read in 2017, and I demolished it in like an hour. I would recommend reading it if you, like me, CANNOT WAIT to get back to Fennbirn, but otherwise nothing really *happens* and we don't learn anythin...

    Actual rating: 4,2? ?How relieved he would be to return to the world. His world, where men ruled.? Story ???? In the prologue we get to meet Queen Camille ? and king-consort Philippe - Arsinoes, Mirabella and Katherine?s parents. That was by far my f...

    WrensReads Review: "Three black witches, the mainland would say. Born to a descending queen. One would rise to become queen in her place. Perhaps the strongest of the three. Perhaps the cleverest. Or perhaps it would be the girl born under the best shield of luck." Okay... *deep ...

    Generally speaking, I'm just not really a fan of this trend where seemingly every second series is complemented by one or more novellas. I'd much rather this information were integrated into the actual book(s) than published as a separate work. While this is still my opinion, I do, h...

    yeah, ok. sure. whatever. i read this book as kind of a test to see whether i want to read the second book in the series, and - astoundingly - i do!!! maybe i will even enjoy it!!! but also the level of confusion i had while i was reading this made me realize i'm going to have to...

    *Review for book 1 in series: Three Dark Crowns *Review for book 2 in series: One Dark Throne Out today! This prequel to the Three Dark Crowns series serves mainly as a detail-gap filler. While there are some moments of enlightenment as wepeekinto the past, there isn't reall...

    This was so much fun, I'm so glad I decided to pick it up! I love this world SO much. This novella definitely added some more dimensions to it, and I'm so happy about that! This was great! Do I think this is a necessary read for the series? At this point, no. I think it's a fun adde...

    I've said it before and I will continue to say it (unless it's the princess diaries series!): I FREAKING LOVE NOVELLAS!!<3<3<3 I just wish this novella came out BEFORE I read all of the previous books BECAUSE now I want to reread all of them AGAIN. Which I'm not complai...

    Rating: 3.5/5 Review to come! ...

    I really enjoyed this prequel! I might've enjoyed it even more than the books themselves. The mood really contrasts with that of Three Dark Crowns and One Dark Throne. It is almost sweet and adoring and you really feel for the sisters. The scene where the 3 queens were split up hon...

    SO. This book is set before the start of Three Dark Crowns, my favorite YA book that I read in 2017, and I demolished it in like an hour. I would recommend reading it if you, like me, CANNOT WAIT to get back to Fennbirn, but otherwise nothing really *happens* and we don't learn anythin...

    What an emotional read. Wow definitely recommend this prequel novella if you liked the other books. ...

    I love how people rated this book one star before it's actually released.... ...

    Amazing! THIS is what a novella should be. This book answered EVERY SINGLE question I had! My highlights: (view spoiler)[ -Caragh and Matthew and her banishment. Heartbreaking. -Natalia's love and adoration for Katharine. -Some background about Madrigal knowing she must be evil ...

    This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction Addiction The minute this novella came out, I had to read it immediately, and it did not disappoint. This little gem lets us experience some of those past events that the main books refer to?the birth of the quee...

    ?No fighting.? Mirabella reaches for a length of black ribbon. ?This is our last day together.? ?But we will see each other sometimes. At festivals,? says Arsinoe. ?We will see one another when we are all grown up,? Mirabella corrects her. ?That is what Willa said. ...

    This was a really fun novella. I loved seeing the princesses as young girls. Their love for one another was so pure. They were so pure. Reading this made me even more excited to read One Dark Throne! ...

    Perfection! The only improvement possible would be to make it a full novel. Bravo! ...

    I loved this book and can't wait to read the second installment. It's a darkish fairy tale with a heavy dose of The Hunger Games. ...

    This is a GREAT prequel. The story fits seamlessly with the existing books, filling in the blanks in many spots where most readers probably wondered ?what happened there?? and craved more details and more background. None of it is of vital importance to understand the plots of ...

    While impatiently awaiting the third book in this series, this short novella satisfied me for the moment. It offers the reader keen insight on the backstory of not only the three queens, but many other characters and fills in some blanks about certain motivations and occurrences in T...

    If you want to read this novella, read Three Dark Crowns and One Dark Throne first, otherwise you will be spoiled. However, it is not necessary to read, because it confirmed things we already knew from the previous books and it only provided some background information. I love the T...

    Tears were splattering the screen of my kindle throughout this entire story. I was aching learning more about the stories of these girls, but woven within the sadness was joy. So many tears. So many feels. I loved this with all of my heart. I live for this series! #EpicBuddyRea...

    Love this series I really didn?t want this book to end. It was great getting the perspective each of the girls had growing up and what it was like for them. It was also cool to hear more about the queens of the past. Can?t wait for the Oracle Queen to come out to learn more abou...
