The Crown of Gilded Bones

The Crown of Gilded Bones Summary

Bow Before Your Queen Or Bleed Before Her…

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book three in her 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…

I literally could NOT put this series down. It has everything you could ever was in a book!!55


Read it5 star

Read it and find out55


Meh2 star

This didn’t feel as exciting to read as the previous books. It felt like a chore to read. The only motivation I had to finish this book was because I bought it. If you want to spice thing up, take a shot when you see the words: stabbing/stabbed, knife/dagger, heart, question/questions. Author always brings up her stabbing him in the heart at least twice in every chapter.25


Very disappointed2 star

I waited so long for this book. Hyped it up for months to my husband and friends- I was so let down. There is so much dialogue and hardly any moving plot whatsoever. Hugely disappointed25


Felt let down2 star

I love this series and was really looking forward to this book but felt really let down. I found it to be slow moving with too much unnecessary dialogue. Pages were spent describing excess detail or to over state the obvious. I did not enjoy it even half as much as the first two. I’m really hoping the next is better and with more action. This series has so much potential.25



I was at the edge of my seat at 4am55

Can’t wait5 star

I can’t wait for the next book!! I love this series55


Couldn’t stop reading!5 star

I’m already finished reading this novel and now I’m mad at myself for not spacing it out more because I don’t even know when Jennifer plans to write the next story. I’m an avid reader and I’ve read plenty of fantasy/romance/adventure books in my time and this is by far one of the best series I’ve ever come across. Each of the characters is incredibly well-developed and the story is so immersive that I’ve found myself laughing out loud, crying and on the edge of my seat at other times. I can’t applaud Jennifer enough for her fantastically skillful writing and the beautiful, magical world she has created. Jennifer - please write more soon! I can hardly wait to learn what happens next! :)55
