Well, this story was really something different. It's the story of three sisters- all born at the same time but with different abilities. All meant to be queen, but in the end, only one of them will be.
They are separated at a very young age and given to their own faction - for lack of a better word - to be raised. There is Katharine- the poisoner. She can supposedly ingest the most deadly of poisons without the slightest stomach ache. Mirabella is an elementalist. She can light fires and conjure deadly storms. Finally, the third sister is Arsinoe - a naturalist. She can control the forces of nature.
On their sixteenth birthday, the battle for the crown begins. The three must fight until only one queen remains. But what happens when one or all of the queens have a different idea for their own destiny.
The plot is wonderful. Extremely original. The writing style was somewhat simple which is what made this book a 4 instead of a 5. I will definitely finish the story though and I hope that the story will grow as the series progresses.
