Hi guys, I hope you all are having a great day, and this is my review to the book Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes. This is the first installment in which I’m pretty sure is a six-book series.
This book is about . . . three kingdoms. If the middle even counts as a kingdom. Limeros, the northern kingdom. Paelsia, the middle kingdom (also, the poor one). And Auranos, the southern and pretty and rich kingdom. All these kingdoms are in the land of Mytica.
When Princess Cleiona Bellos goes to visit with her fiancé to the Paelsian wine-seller, her drunk fiancé kills the wine-seller’s son. This causes an uprising in all three of these kingdoms. This story is told in third person. There’s the Princess Cleo (Auranos), Prince Magnus and Princess Lucia (Limeros), and Jonas and the Chief who’s name I cannot bother to remember since he was a stupid character anyway. Also he is not really a main character.
Now, this book. Had. Me. Hooked. Which is weird.
Except, I honestly cannot decide if I liked more things or didn’t like more things from this book. Like, there are things I didn’t like:
For some reason, I still really liked this book. I am definitely reading the second. Probably because I feel like Jonas and Cleo matured at the end compared to Lucia and Magnus. I also like King Gaius because he knows what he’s doing man. So yep, I am reading the next book. I would recommend this, probably because it does get through very quickly. Maybe at the end it even changed your mind. I feel like this series has a lot of potential, though.
