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 gut you emotionally. It will make you ache, cry, and beg for the sequel as you turn the last page. I absolutely loved it."--Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Queen "This triple-layered tale of bloodshed, heartbreak, and tangled court intrigue kept me turning pages very late into the night."--Lesley Livingston, award-winning author of Wondrous Strange

What an awesome, start to what I hope is a fantastic series. I bought the first book but didn't have money to buy the next one. But luckily my library had it as an ebook, so I downloaded that one as well. I can't decide who was my favorite character or if I really have one as of yet, there all pret...
Great start to what seems like will be a sweeping, juicy fantasy series. Don't let some of the book descriptions fool you. Wolfed right through this one very quickly -- unusual for me with all the POV and location switches which can sometimes go very wrong for me. Loved it. Not quite traditio...
There is so much going on in this book! What a journey. There are three different kingdoms and four main characters that we jump back and forth between. Kingdom of Auranos: Princess Cleo is the youngest daughter. She is spoiled, stubborn, a bit immature and engaged to a vile little drunk. While jo...
I have never read Game of Thrones, and it is not on my to-read list, but from what I know about Game of Thrones I'd say that the author of this book was trying to create a YA version of that series.Lots of people die. There are a bunch of different POVs, and it's hard not to hate most of the charact...
