Hello fellow readers, David here. In keeping with my recent High Fantasy kick, today I want to bring FALLEN KINGDOMS to your attention (if it hasn’t been already!). This books sounds great and I do love tales of political intrigue and warring kingdoms. It sounds like a lot goes on in this book and I can’t wait to dive into it! It’s written by Michelle Rowan, under the pen name Morgan Rhodes. You maybe familiar with the author, who already has a number of books under her belt. Anyway, here is a bit more about the book:
In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined:
Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.
Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.
Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.
Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword…
The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?
FALLING KINGDOMS will hit shelves on the 11th of December 2012, which is in perfect time for Christmas. Be sure to add this on to you list and I hope Santa deems that you have been good this year, ’cause this is one present you won’t want to miss out on!
