Three Dark Crowns is the first book in the series of the same name. The book introduces to the island of Fennbirn where a set of triplets is born in every generation. Three girls who would be queen, all equal heirs to the crown and each with their own unique magical ability. There is Mirabella who is a fierce elemental, Katharine the poisoner, and Arsinoe who has the powers of a naturalist. When these girls turn 16, the battle begins as there is only one queen in this kingdom and the sisters will need to fight to get it.

Another popular book by Blake is Anna Dressed in Blood. The book follows Cas Lowood who has the unusual vocation of killing the dead. He inherited the job from his father and he travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. The group arrives in a new town in search of a ghost called Anna Dressed in Blood. She is the toughest ghost that he has ever faced and she has killed everyone person who has dared step into her former home. Which is what makes it even weirder when she spares Cas’s life.
