Rebels, royals, and monsters wage war over the Mytican throne in the shocking fourth book of the Falling Kingdoms series, from New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes.
CLEO: Reeling after a bloody showdown in Limeros ending with Amara’s abduction of the water crystal, and a vacancy in the Mytican throne, Princess Cleo must cast aside her feelings and look toward her kingdom with the eyes of a Queen.
MAGNUS: With the kingdom in chaos, Princess Lucia still missing and quite possibly in danger, and a shocking realization about Cleo, the steely prince is once again torn between love and duty, leaving him wondering whether he’s strong enough to rule his people.
LUCIA: The young sorcercess has had her vengeance after the cruel death of her first and only love. Heartbroken and unable to trust anyone, she allies with the awoken Fire god, who also seeks revenge.
JONAS: After escaping death by the skin of his teeth, the defeated rebel—along with a mysterious stranger–leader reunites with Princess Cleo, only to find himself a mere pawn in a dangerous hunt for the elusive Kindred.
KING GAIUS: Abandoned by Melenia and betrayed by his own children, Gaius flees Mytica and sails to Kraeshia, where he attempts to ally with the famously brutal emperor across the Silver Sea.
This was exactly what I wanted it to be and more. But honestly, isn’t that the best way to describe any Morgan Rhodes book? I mean, damn, this woman can write such an amazing author and literally anything she writes pulls me in so quickly. It’s now moved up to be my favorite fantasy series I’ve ever read. Ever.
I know that I used to be such TOG trash, but honestly, when a series like Falling Kingdoms exists, why? I’m not going to get into why I feel that way, because it would be a post all in its own, and it would probably be a super super long post as well. However, if you’re looking for a reason to pick this series up, here it is: If you like TOG, this is like that, but better.
I can’t really say much else without being spoilery, sooooooo, without further ado I’m going to jump into a spoilery section here. If you haven’t read yet, go pick this one up and come back speedy quick so we can fangirl together!
CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE FACT
IT’S HAPPENING. ITS A THING. THEY DID THE THING. I’M LITERALLY UNABLE TO FORM REAL WORDS I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS RIGHT NOW HELP ME PLEASE.
“She was his princess. No. She was his goddess. With her golden skin and golden hair. She was his light. His life. His everything.
He loved her more than anything else in this world.”
I mean, how can you read this quote and not fall in love with this couple? I just can’t deal anymore, you guys, I just can’t.
I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
