Review of Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Title: Falling Kingdoms 
Series: Falling Kingdoms Book 1
Author: Morgan Rhodes

In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.

As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed… and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.

The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

It’s the eve of war…. Choose your side.

Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.

Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.
Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword….

Rating: I will be giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. I really, really, really, enjoyed this book. This book is a YA Game of Thrones. The characters are wonderful and as the book progresses the character development is amazing. At first I was very unsure if I even wanted to start this book, but after reading the first chapter I knew I needed to finish it. This book took me not even 2 day! That is how good it is. There are three kingdoms in this book and a set of characters from the kingdoms. The reason for my hesitation on this book was due to the cast of characters, they were a little overwhelming at first but then after a little you really can grasp who is who and their stories, though separate, start to weave together. The transitions in this book were great and the different point of views from the characters were well thought out and wonderfully written, each character had their own vivid personality and goals. If you are looking for something on the fantasy side then this is a book you should pick up.
