Falling Kingdoms: Falling Kingdoms (Book 1)
by Morgan Rhodes
“In a land where magic has been forgotten and peace has reigned for centuries, unrest is simmering.
Three kingdoms battle for power…
A princess must journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.
A rebel becomes the leader of a bloody revolution.
A sorceress discovers the truth about the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.
It’s the eve of war. Each must choose a side.
Kingdoms will fall.”
I have heard about Falling Kingdoms for ages, and I have always wanted to read it. I thought that the last book coming out was the perfect opportunity to buy them and read all of them.
Cleo is on a trip into Paelsia to get some wine with a friend, when the friend ends up killing a Paelsian. This is political trouble and ends up with massive chaos between kingdoms.
Oh my, this book is incredible, I loved every single second. I cannot wait to read more. I was hooked pretty much straight away, I went through so many emotions and those twists are like being on a rollercoaster.
I think my favourite part has to be following Cleo, even though she is a ‘stuck-up’ princess. I enjoyed learning about the different cultures and countries, although I feel that there is more to learn. There were several points I ended up crying at even though I had less than one book to bond with characters.
I think my favourite characters are Cleo, Jonas, Mira and Nic. I love the differences between them and the relationships that are there, and the relationships that you can see building.
Falling Kingdoms ends on a cliffhanger, that is because the series continues in Rebel Spring.
While reading this book, I described it as a YA version of Game of Thrones and kingdoms warring against each other. I would recommend it to anyone. 4 out of 5.
