Book 3 in the Blood and Ash series

She's been the victim and the survivor…

Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.

The enemy and the warrior…

Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.

A lover and heartmate…

But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.

And now she will become Queen…

The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L Armentrout is the third book in her increasingly popular Blood and Ash series, and continues Poppy's story right at the moment we left off in the second book. When Poppy learns of whose blood she carries in her veins - and why she is able to do the things she does, she has a choice to make. She can claim Atlantia, as is her blood given right, or forsake it. As she comes to terms with everything she learns, and a life altering choice before her, she learns of a threat that can destroy everything and everyone she holds dear. One thing for sure: no matter what Poppy and her husband Casteel choose to do, it will change their lives forever.

Woah. Just holy fucking whoa.

How do I put this without spoiling anything ...
