About Three Dark Crowns (via Goodreads):

Fans of acclaimed author Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Bloodwill devour her latest novel, a dark and inventive fantasy about three sisters who must fight to the death to become queen.

In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose...it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

The last queen standing gets the crown.

I originally wasn't sure whether I wanted to pick up this book, but Sarah @ YA Book Traveler made an INCREDIBLE book trailer for it, and I just fell in love with the concept as she made it come to life on the screen. I can't wait to see how the story plays out within the pages, and I'm interested to see what I'll think of (likely) the first Kendare Blake book I'll ever read.
