I’m really glad I still picked up this book, regardless of the negative reviews it has.
Three sisters are separated at a young age and fostered by families in different places until their sixteenth birthday. There can only be one queen, which means two sisters must be killed. One is an elemental, able to control weather, one is a naturalist, able to control nature, and the third is a poisoner.. which is pretty self explanatory.
However, only one sister is showing her true gift and the other two are struggling. There’s some love interest and crazy political things going on, but I enjoyed all of them. It was all easy to understand. I can’t wait to get into the second book!
If you’re going to be critical, yes, this book could have been a lot crazier. It could have been completely brutal and over the top. And yeah, they should definitely make it into a movie. The first hundred pages were all about getting used to the three sisters and their different worlds. A lot of people seemed to have lost interest because of that. But honestly, I didn’t mind the first half and loved the second. I read most of it while taking a bath, and the water went cold because I couldn’t stop reading. What a freakin’ cliffhanger we were left with at the end.
There definitely isn’t anything stopping me from picking up the next book.
