Why did I get it?
I actually requested this title through Edelweiss because I was way too excited to wait for it to be published! Obviously I had been tortured enough waiting for the sequel to Three Dark Crowns for almost a year. With the way the first book ended I was completely hooked and I had to know what happened. Why do you torture me Kendare Blake? Book one was full of so many twists and turns that by the end I had my jaw hanging open with drool dripping down my chin because I was hungry for more.
Why haven’t I read it yet?
I could go with the not-so-subtle answer of “my TBR is too much” or “I’m in a slump”, but if I’m being honest it’s because I’m so hyped up for it that I’m afraid it won’t live up to expectations. Hype books are dangerous territory because they are either a hit or miss, and the last book was only good in the second half. So I’m nervous because I feel TOO excited. Does that make sense? Maybe I should just start it. Who knows what I’m missing? Katherine could take over the world for all I know! There could be a fourth queen (this is one of my biggest predictions)! But, apparently the series extended from a duology to a saga and now anything is possible.
