Blog Tour ~ Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake ~ Guest Post + Giveaway
Welcome to the Blog Tour for Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake. I am superhyped that I get to participate in this tour. dances The book sounds epic, and dang that cover is just too good!
For today’s post I got all the information on the book/author, a guest post (which made me squee as it features characters from Anna Dressed in Blood), a fabulous trailer for the book, and a giveaway. Yep, this post is full with amazingness!
Time to start~
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kendare Blake returns with the highly anticipated third book in the Three Dark Crowns series! And while Arsinoe, Mirabella, and Katharine all have their own scores to settle, they aren’t the only queens stirring things up on Fennbirn Island.
Queen Katharine has waited her entire life to wear the crown. But now that she finally has it, the murmurs of dissent grow louder by the day. There’s also the alarming issue of whether or not her sisters are actually dead—or if they’re waiting in the wings to usurp the throne.
Mirabella and Arsinoe are alive, but in hiding on the minland and dealing with a nightmare of their own: being visited repeatedly by a specter they think might be the fabled Blue Queen. Though she says nothing, her rotting, bony finger pointing out to sea is clear enough: return to Fennbirn.
Jules, too, is in a strange place—in disguise. And her only confidants, a war-gifted girl named Emilia and her oracle friend Mathilde, are urging her to take on a role she can’t imagine filling: a legion-cursed queen who will lead a rebel army to Katharine’s doorstep.
This is an uprising that the mysterious Blue Queen may have more to do with than anyone could have guessed—or expected.
Kendare Blake is the author of several novels and short stories, most of which you can find information about via the links above. Her work is sort of dark, always violent, and features passages describing food from when she writes while hungry. She was born in July (for those of you doing book reports) in Seoul, South Korea, but doesn’t speak a lick of Korean, as she was packed off at a very early age to her adoptive parents in the United States. That might be just an excuse, though, as she is pretty bad at learning foreign languages. She enjoys the work of Milan Kundera, Caitlin R Kiernan, Bret Easton Ellis, Richard Linklater, and the late, great Michael Jackson, I mean, come on, he gave us Thriller.
She lives and writes in Kent, Washington, with her husband, their cat son Tyrion Cattister, red Doberman dog son Obi-Dog Kenobi, rottie mix dog daughter Agent Scully, and naked sphynx cat son Armpit McGee.
Time for a fun guest post! Thanks Kendare.
THREE DARK CROWNS GIFTS FOR CHARACTERS FROM ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD
CAS – Naturalist. His familiar would be (no, not a cat) a sly gray fox.
ANNA – Elemental. Her affinity would be for water and weather, and she would absolutely rock them both.
THOMAS – Oracle. He’s very down with the messages of the universe. His gift would be visions in smoke. Also, mind-reading of course!
CARMEL – War-gifted. Beware Carmel and her aluminum bat.
