    I don't think anyone understands how excited I am for this book. This series is the first book I see when I walk into my apartment, I literally have dreamed the story-line multiple times because I just theorize what is going to happen in my off-time, and I am pretty sure I am obsessed-passed the health-phase.

    But I just can't help how EXCITED I AM!

    I low-key am crazed with needing this BOOK like YESTERDAY. The novella comes out in April, so that should be a good fix!

    OMG...the madness

    Like it's predecessors, I consumed this book.

    Just to change it up, I'll do character rankings rather than just sister rankings.

    Katharine ≈ Arsinoe > Billy ≈ Mirabella ≈ Pietyr > Jules >>> Emilia

    First off, congratulations to Mirabella and Jules for stepping out of the role of my least favorite character(s). But it's not much of a surprise when Emilia Vatros is literally one of the most annoying, over-bearing characters of this entire series.

    OMG...the madness

    Like it's predecessors, I consumed this book.

    Just to change it up, I'll do character rankings rather than just sister rankings.

    Katharine ≈ Arsinoe > Billy ≈ Mirabella ≈ Pietyr > Jules >>> Emilia

    First off, congratulations to Mirabella and Jules for stepping out of the role of my least favorite character(s). But it's not much of a surprise when Emilia Vatros is literally one of the most annoying, over-bearing characters of this entire series.

    She acts as though she knows what is best for Jules and constantly, not so subtlely, insisting that she lead the rebellion against the queen line because it is her destiny, and she should just accept that it's her job to lead these efforts she literally had no idea about until now. And she also seems to dislike Jules' close relationship with Arsinoe, to which I say: BACK THE F*** UP!

    Billy and Arsinoe's relationship does hit a quite a few bumps in the road throughout this book. One major one being Billy's mother and her relentless efforts to marry him off to a traditional mainland girl. Others being Arsinoe's intrinsic habit of keeping secrets and each of them feeling somewhat out of place in the other's world. But despite it all, they continue to hold on and fight for each other. Never truly letting anything come between them.

    It's odd really. Katharine and Pietyr are both people who most others would've surely walked away from. What with Pietyr pushing the girl he claimed to love down a horrid abyss, a Katharine being possessed by murderous queens that force her into killing against her will. Most girls would never forgive Pietyr, let alone trust him. But Katharine does. And most boys would've taken running for the hills to escape the trail of bodies Katharine seems to leave in her wake. But Pietyr doesn't.

    No longer twisted by the demands of the crown and those around them, these two have returned to their roots. Two sisters just trying to find their place in a world in which they can never truly belong. Mirabella steps right back into her role as a big sister. Looking after Arsinoe and making sure no one, not even Billy, ever has the chance to hurt her. But despite all her efforts Mirabella is not able to keep Arsinoe, or herself, from returning to the island.

    These two have become quite the pair of friends. There is clearly a mutual understanding and respect between the two. And constantly work together in an attempt to care for and protect Arsinoe.

    No matter what has come to past, these two are still best friends. Ride-or-die. So when Arsinoe returns to the island and finds out Jules has taken on the title of Legion Queen. She does not question it. She stands by her friend and supports her, just as Jules has always done for her.

    Previously, rivals at best and enemies at worst, these two have found common ground. That being their love and devotion to Arsinoe. They've set aside their differences and are both working for the greater. But by books end, their paths have yet again diverged and only time with tell what becomes of their tenuous ceasefire.

    How I felt about how things ended for the trio by books end:

    Before reading

    , the previous two books in this series were decent. I liked them enough but I didn't love them. I liked the world the series takes place in as well as the magic and lore behind it. The character themselves were also complex and interesting given the circumstances they were in. However, I felt like there was something missing from them. I hoped that Two Dark Reigns would rectify the problems I had.

    And it did in the best way possible.

    And it did in the best way possible.

    Two Dark Reigns is an improvement from the previous two books and I really enjoyed my time reading it. It felt like all the previous complaints I had were fixed here and my enjoyment skyrocketed big time. I was pleasantly surprised by how Kendare Blake managed to not only expand the world but to also give us more backstory on Jules and the lore of the island.

    Two Dark Reigns picks up where we last saw the sisters. Mirabella and Arsinoe on the mainland and Katharine on Fennbirn as the Queen. Jules herself is back on the island and is tugged along with two other girls who believe she is the key to ending the reign of Katharine and finally putting a stop to the long reign of Queens. But something or someone wants Mirabella and Arsinoe back on the island. And dead bodies are starting to appear. Something bad is happening in Fennbirn.

    First off, I liked how Kendare wanted to expand the world with new locations and a bigger map (I love maps in fantasy novels) as well as going more into detail about the lore surrounding Fennbirn and the Blue Queen. When books, particularly fantasy and sci-fi books start to expand in their worldbuilding, I get so excited to see many new things. It's part of why I liked Two Dark Reigns more.

    The characters themselves were just as good. I mentioned this before in my reviews of the previous two books and I'll say it again: Mirabella is hands-down my favorite sister out of all of them. She is the more mature and kind sister that genuinely wants the best for them. She's kind to a fault, and that's what I love about her. Arsinoe and Katharine are also great characters as well. Arsinoe finally has a purpose in this book and she really steps up in parts of the book. My complaint I had with Arsinoe was that I never really understood her relevancy to the plot and was mainly used for Jules' growth. But finally, she has a purpose while also breaking the status quo and gender norms when she is on the mainland.

    Jules and Katharine are next and I was surprised by their growth. Jules was always an enigma to me because like Arsinoe, I didn't really understand how relevant she was going to be for the plot. In this story, she has growth and a purpose. Her story is one of the many shining aspects of Two Dark Reigns.

    Katharine... she's scary. After the second book, she's become fiercer than ever while fighting literal darkness inside of her. You want to not like her because of who she has become but you still like her because she is a different person who strikes fear in the eyes of the people.

    Plot-wise, I really liked it a lot. It's hard for me to describe how much I loved it without giving away too many spoilers, but I do like the progression on the characters, the rebellion, and the genuine curiosity I get from reading more about the lore. There's something about this series that I love and it would have to be the overall mystery of the island and the lore. I find it so fascinating.

    One negative thing I will have to say is that while I liked the world building, I wished there was more to it. Specifically, the Mainlands. I know Fennbirn is the major setting for the series, but we are given the opportunity to see outside of Fennbirn. There was some backstory regarding one country, but not enough.

    Also, there are way too many damn characters to keep track of. It's like one of those plays or stories your literature teachers forced to read in high school and college where there are a lot of characters and you lose track of who was who. There is a glossary at the beginning, but there was still too many characters.

    Two Dark Reigns is probably my favorite book in this series so far. That might change when the last book is released, but Two Dark Reigns is a really good book.

    Thanks for reading my review!
