The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout Book 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…

The Crown of Gilded Bones (Jennifer L. Armentrout) Book Reviews

Get to the pointI had to give up. I tried. The first two books were good and gave a pleasant mixture of dialogue and action. But this book is just a constant repetition of her questions and repeated history of her bloodline and then hormones. I would read more about the whole thing with Kieran but honestly, I am tired of this wordiness that seems like it’s simply filling words on a page. I appreciate the enthusiasm of their love and respect but what’s the point? Get to it. I am going to try again as ppl said it gets interesting again later but a lot of scrolling past is going to happen..Score: 2/5

DisappointedI hate to say how disappointed I was in this book. I truly enjoyed the first in the series, but this one seems to have no plot, the main male character is completely lost from the original and we are now bordering on orgies in the sex scenes which was not the vibe provided in the first book..Score: 1/5

Had potential but fell flatI enjoyed the first two books of this series so my expectations for this book were high. Unfortunately, I was severely disappointed. While there were a lot of things I disliked, I think the worst thing had to be the awkward dialogue. Half the conversations had me either rolling my eyes or cringing internally—none of it felt authentic and it could get really repetitive (like WE GET IT Poppy asks a lot of questions, do we have to mention it EVERY time??? It just quickly went from humorous to irritating). I also felt like the smut scenes weren’t fitting into the story and felt very forced which made them hard to even enjoy. This whole book didn’t have a solid plot and it just felt like a jumbled mess of all these different events (and a lot these events should have been really big moments but often felt rushed and underwhelming, but that’s a WHOLE other issue) that got very tiring to read. Especially, when the history started to get complicated and wordy … I ended up dropping the book and left it for months before reluctantly deciding to pick it up again. Fortunately, the last 200-300 pages got really interesting and it left off on a note that made me at least curious to pick up the next book. Hopefully we get more than what this book was giving us :(.Score: 2/5

TolerableAfter reading the first two and being moderately intrigued by the story and characters, this book left me somewhat disappointed. The dialogue between poppy and cas was childish and forced at times, I felt myself cringing at unnecessary conversations. This book seemed to be one that was made just to transition for something bigger and more complex. A necessary evil for most series but up until the last 15-10 chapters I was forcing myself to get to the action. The spice✨ was well written and not repetitive which I appreciated. I’m excited to continue with this series and it’s spin-offs as the next book hopefully will have more of a plot. Also what’s up with mentioning poppy’s questions so much…made the dialogue awkward and honestly annoying!! The story itself keeps me coming back and if you can power through this one than it’s worth it to continue..Score: 2/5

I cannot put how good this book is into words.Many people told me that, out of the entire saga, this was the least interesting book to read. If you heard this before, don’t trust them. It gives a much needed explanation; one that didn’t happened in the previous two books. If you think you know Poppy, I dare to say you don’t. Prepare for the cliffhanger this book will gift you. I personally cannot wait until 05/22 to read the next one..Score: 5/5

The first two books were so much betterI am really struggling to get through this book. it’s all just information building and them being scared to talk to people like his parents..Score: 2/5

It had some good momentsI’m obviously three books deep in this series, so it’s kept me interested this long. But I will say that I found this book to be a lot of dialog and inner workings. There were definitely a lot of bored moments for me where I felt like the main character continued to rehash information that didn’t go anywhere. Other than that I have enjoyed the overall series.Score: 3/5

So pumped for book 4I seriously don’t get all of the bad reviews, this book did have a lot of dialogue and in the middle it seemed to drag but so did book 2. If your a fan of the series you learn so much in this book and I feel like it was a great gateway book to the rest of the series. It’s going to be a long excruciating wait for the next book.Score: 5/5

Honestly…I’m at loss for words.To say I’m excited for the fourth installment of this series is an understatement. I’m biting at the bit. Pulling my hair out. It’s an obsession. I’m really excited to see poppy break free of this “I have to keep my powers inside” version of herself that lasted about two and half books. I’m ready for revenge fueled poppy who takes and destroys and fights for her brother and the love of her life. To see her grow so much has been probably my all time favorite character development in any series I’ve read. So If like, you could release just a crumb of the next book, that’d be amazing, lol..Score: 5/5

Too long & WordyThis book had the potential to be a good read but it was too long and everything was exaggerated and wordy. I had to skip/skim through most of the book because of all of the unnecessary content. If shorten to about 300 pages this could be a really good book..Score: 3/5

Another great one in the FBAA seriesArmentrout doesn’t disappoint with the next installment in the From Blood and Ash series. I yet again loved this one. I love the growth from the characters and the depth she added to the world. I think for the most part this book moved a little slower than the last, I still loved it though, and the last 40 pages or so were amazing! Poppy remains probably my favorite female book lead and I want Casteel or Kieran even more now. I know a book is good when the last few pages heading for the cliffhanger almost destroys me emotionally, which this did. The last time I felt like this was after Crush by Tracy Wolff. To say I’m dying for the next book would be an understatement..Score: 5/5

DisappointedDisappointed. I really liked the first two books but this third book feels like it’s just adding more and more to the books so JLA can get more books out of this series. The book didn’t really advance the plot any further expect you learn more about poppy and what she is. But it’s left again on a cliff hanger and now it’s going to be another year or so until the next book. It just feels like JLA cares more about making money by making as many books as possible..Score: 1/5

From Blood and Ash Series- June 2021I am ready to start the third series from Jennifer’s mind blowing series. The amount of imagination she came up with to create exciting complex events, so intertwined into so many lives, plus bringing the love story to a unexpected twist, leads to an outstanding enjoyable paranormal series of three novels. For those who are so critical of Jennifers’s work, obviously don’t have the taste for this type paranormal with the amount of detail she incorporates….should choose elsewhere. I could rave and rave how well done this series is, and what a wonderful talented author Jennifer is and how she manages to come up with the most unexpected ending in all her books. I am never disappointed in any of her novels…which says a lot about the author. Stony Plain, AB, CA- Linda N..Score: 5/5

Poorly craftedDisappointing after the first two. Really noticed the lack of storytelling prowess. Everything was explained via long conversations between characters and even then the relationship between deities, gods, primal was overly complex and ultra confusing in a messy, rathe than clever way. Last quarter was ok, but has lost something for me since the first. Lacks the feeling of genuine high fantasy given the characters’ use of certain slang terms. Relationships needed to be more multi-dimensional by now. There was no evolution to Poppy and Casteel’s or even Poppy and Kieran’s relationships. Poppy became less believable the more attitude she got. I wanted to see Poppy continue to emerge from the oppression of being the maiden, but I found she did so in a petulant, surly way that seemed immature and made me annoyed with her. It lost its charm in these ways for me..Score: 4/5
