La liste des tomes


Triplet queens born on the island of Fennbirn can be many things: Elementals. Poisoners. Naturalists. If an oracle queen is born, however, one with the gift of sight, she’s immediately drowned, extinguishing her chance at ever taking the throne. But that’s not how it always was. This cautionary practice started long ago, with Queen Elsabet—the legendary, and last, oracle queen—whose reign was tinged with blood and horror. Paranoid, ruthless, and utterly mad, Elsabet’s mistrust led to the senseless slaying of three entire houses of innocent people. At least, that’s the unchallenged tale carried down from generation to generation. But what really happened? Discover the true story behind the queen who, though born with the gift of sight, could not foresee her swift and sudden fall from power . . . until it was too late.

E-book release Mirabella, Arsinoe, and Katharine weren't always scheming to murder each other. They weren't always surrounded by rival foster families, each swearing to have their best interests at heart. And they weren't always afraid of being unexpectedly attacked—by one of their own sisters, no less—in a way that could cost them their last breath. They used to be together. Just three sisters. Alone in a glen. This is the story of the three queens—after they were born, before they were separated, during the time when they all lived together, loved each other, and protected each other. It’s also the story of the day they were torn apart, and the several years that follow. From birth to eleven years old, this is a rare glimpse of the queens' lives…before they were at stake.

A chaque génération sur l'île de Fennbirn, une série de triplés voit le jour : trois reines, toutes héritières égales de la couronne et chacune détentrice d'une magie convoitée. Mirabella est une élémentaire féroce, capable d'allumer des flammes affamées ou des tempêtes vicieuses en claquant des doigts. Katharine est une empoisonneuse, capable d'ingérer les poisons les plus mortels sans avoir le moindre mal de ventre. Arsinoe, une naturaliste, a la capacité, dit-on, de faire fleurir la rose la plus rouge et de contrôler les lions les plus féroces. Mais devenir la reine couronnée n'est pas seulement une question de naissance royale. Chaque sœur doit se battre pour cela. Et ce n'est pas seulement un jeu où il faut gagner ou perdre... c'est une question de vie ou de mort. La nuit où les sœurs atteignent leurs 16 ans, la bataille commence. La dernière reine à demeurer debout obtiendra la couronne.

L’affrontement pour la couronne a débuté et les événements inoubliables de la Révélation ont laissé leur marque dans l’esprit des trois sœurs. Katharine, autrefois cette faible et frêle reine, est devenue étonnamment forte. Arsinoé a découvert un secret lié à son don qui pourrait la mener à son salut ou à sa perte. Enfin, la puissante Mirabella, pensant qu’Arsinoé l’a trahie, est fin prête à en découdre.   En pleine année de l’Ascension, les triplées vont devoir faire face à des attaques qui les pousseront à remettre leurs destins et leur progression vers le trône en question. Leurs amis tout comme leurs ennemis leur forcent la main, les menant à une issue bouleversante qui changera à jamais tous les protagonistes impliqués. Reprenant là où le bestseller du New York Times, Three Dark Crowns, s’est arrêté, One Dark Throne prolonge l’aventure avec des enjeux encore plus époustouflants, des rebondissements stupéfiants et un dénouement qu’aucun lecteur ne pourra imaginer.

In the third book in the #1 New York Timesbestselling Three Dark Crowns series, a queen that has long been dead makes a chilling return to 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 her sisters are actually dead—or if they’re waiting in the wings to usurp the throne. Mirabella and Arsinoe are alive, but they’re dealing with a nightmare of their own. Stuck on the mainland, where their powers have weakened, the girls are being visited by a specter they think may be the fabled Blue Queen, pointing her rotting, boney finger toward Fennbirn. Jules, too, is in a strange place—still on the island but in disguise. And her only confidantes, 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.

This is an uprising that the mysterious Blue Queen may have more to do with than anyone could have guessed—or expected.
After the grim confrontation with Queen Katharine, the rebellion lies in tatters. Jules’s legion curse has been unbound, and it is up to Arsinoe to find a cure, even as the responsibility of stopping the ravaging mist lies heavy on her shoulders, and her shoulders alone. Mirabella has disappeared. Katharine’s reign remains intact—for now. When Mirabella arrives, seemingly under a banner of truce, Katharine begins to yearn for the closeness that Mirabella and Arsinoe share. But as the two circle each other, the dead queens hiss caution—Mirabella is not to be trusted. In this conclusion to the Three Dark Crowns series, three sisters will rise to fight as the secrets of Fennbirn’s history are laid bare. Allegiances will shift. Bonds will be tested. But the fate of the island lies in the hands of its queens. It always has.
