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…

Book Reviews


I wish I never read this book5 star

I love it so much. I’m so invested . Where’s the next one ?? Where is my casteel and poppy reunion?! Where is the BATTLE. Now I have to wait til October onggg. Anyway 10 stars great book! I wish I didn’t read it it until we had it all buut great book 😅55


Disappointed...2 star

I was engaged reading books 1 & 2 as the plot evolved naturally but this third book was a massive let down. I hope Armentrout can come back from this, the series had tremendous potential but this read offers nothing but poorly structured whiplash.25


Good but ....4 star

Okay, people are gonna hate me for this but... The sexual chemistry between Kieran Poppy and Casteel is astronomical. Anyway, this book was good, repetitive as other reviews have stated, (ironic- negative reviews about the repetition are getting repetitive) This book was a little slow and drawn out but a lot of crucial plot points happened amidst the chaotic repetition. I’d say it’s definitely worth the read if you’ve already invested your time in the first and second books.45


Drawn Out. Can’t wait for it to be over.2 star

I’ve been trying to get through this book for a week now. I’m over 600 pages in and I find myself skimming over paragraph after paragraph. I’m bored. I’ve read other reviews that say it’s the greatest but I just don’t see how. I will finish the book and hopefully I’ll enjoy the ending but honestly, even if she keeps writing more I can’t imagine I will purchase another.25


What happened to this one??2 star

The firsts 2 were really good. This felt rush. She could’ve finished the series in the 3rd book. Instead, I got repetitive dialogues. The protagonists regressed to high school dialogue and immature conversations. The sex scenes were unnecessary and predictable. Like I said, what happened???25


A LOT of fluff3 star

I love her books - but there is no way to understate the lack of substance to a vast majority of this book. I am still ANXIOUSLY waiting the fourth book because I know it will be full of action. But this book was a lot of unnecessary dialogue, and I agree with the other reviews that it is repetitive- i.e., casteel is inappropriate, poppy is naive and inexperienced, and Kieran is annoyed. Also when is the joining happening, come on ...35


Love love love!5 star

I LOVE the From Blood and Ash series and this one definitely didnt fail to disappoint! I need book 4 out right now!55


Best series ever5 star

Idk how other reviews can say it was boring or not as good as the other 2 books in the series. This one is my absolute FAVORITE. I have been reading fantasy books for years and this series is hands down the best I have ever read. I’m definitely going to reread the series, I miss the characters so much! I love her details and the character developments. Cas and poppy are goals!55


Ugh3 star

Honestly the first 2 books were SO good. I literally recommended them to everyone! But this last book was so bad. Listen - spicy scenes are great but literally they have sex like every 50 pages and it literally doesn’t make sense why they would be having sex when they do 🤦🏻‍♀️ the writing is repetitive and predictable in this 3rd book. Poppy asks a lot of questions, Cas is inappropriate, Kieran is not surprised - I get it. I’m so sad because the story had so much potential...35


disappointing2 star

waited so long and was so excited. the first couple chapters and the last couple chapters were great and everything in between was pointless. very disappointed25
