NOTE: Today I begin a slightly different format for my podcast. I feel it will lead to shorter, more enjoyable episodes for you, my wonderful listeners. Instead of doing a full-on plot dive into all the details, my guests and I will more casually discuss what we liked/didn't like, our favorite moments/quotes, the characters, and the plotline in general. So this does mean that the entire episode WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS. You've been warned.

I hope you enjoy! Thanks for listening!



Join my guest Rachel Carpenter and I as we dive into book three of the Three Dark Crowns trilogy. 

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 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 mainland 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.
