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…


  • Not a great read

    By South shore of Lake Ontario
    I’ve enjoyed this series up to this book… I tired of the love story and the pace was too slow for me.
  • Couldn’t put it down

  • On the edge of my seat the whole time

    Amazing 11/10 my favorite series of all time
  • Wasted my time.

    By Stargazer_jlk
    I kept wanting to like this book. Aside from the cliffhanger ending which I admit was great, the majority of the book was pretty boring. I even found myself wanting to skip portions just to get it over with but would keep reading just in case it got better.
  • Love this Series!!

    By Tater2424
    Fell in love with this series and couldn’t put the books down. Probably my favorite series I have ever read. Very well written. Hope Poppy and Casteel’s story continues because I am hooked! Highly Recommend.
  • Fantastic Series!!!

    By CaityHB9
    It is a thoughtful, detailed and extraordinary story. And unlike most series, the end is not rushed. She continues the slow build giving the story the ending it deserves. Bravo. I look forward to October
  • Great read

    By Big Oven lover
    The first and second book was amazing, I could not put them down, it started the obsession. I wasn’t a fan of the beginning of the third book or some of the early middle but the book did turn around then and surprised me. I can’t wait the next one!
  • Love love love

    By Sdot8888
    This book again left me on a cliffhanger and I am so mad I have to wait until October to finish. The characters and story captivated me from beginning to end!!!!
  • I wish I never read this book

  • Disappointed...

    By MayiMayiFlor
    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.
