Black Crown

by Raye Wagner and Kelly St. Clare


Book 3 in the Darkest Drae Trilogy

I will not be ruled by fear.

A depraved emperor. A wasted realm. A dying race.

With Tyrrik by my side, I’ll lead the charge to remedy it all.

After discovering the rightful heir to the Phaetyn, an alliance with the healers should be easy as pancakes. But while the armies of Verald and Gemond march to the border for war, the emperor delivers a crushing blow that threatens to put everything at risk.

As I fight my father’s staggering power, I’m compelled to face evil on his terms. A twisted darkness worse than anything I’ve experienced.

Nothing could’ve prepared me for this.

How far would you go to defeat a merciless sovereign?

I’ll lie to the liars.

I’ll betray the betrayers.

I’ll kill the killers.

I will conquer my fear.

Black Crown is the third and final book in the Darkest Drae trilogy, and is co-written by Raye Wagner and Kelly St. Clare. It centers around Ryn, a half Drae/half Phaetyn who leads the charge in a war against an evil Emperor - who just happens to be her father.

Notice how I didn't put a whole lot of effort in the synopsis of this book? Yeah, there is a reason for that.

I just didn't like it.
