Synopsis: Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred - the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic . . .
• THE KRAESHIANS join the hunt. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the wealthy kingdom across the Silver Sea, charm and manipulate their way to the Kindred, proving to be more ruthless than perhaps even the King of Blood himself.
• THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo and vengeful Jonas lead them, slaying with sweetness, skill, and a secret that can control Lucia's overpowering magic - all so they can use the Kindred to win back their fallen kingdoms.
• THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally in the flesh with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia's powers to unveil the Kindred.
The only certainty in the dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica... but fate can be fickle when magic is involved.
Our Thoughts: We are SOOOO EXCIIIITED for this book to come out we can barely control ourselves just thinking about it! *eruption of squeals* *giggle fit* We have been HUUUUUGE fans of THE FALLING KINGDOMS books since the first book was released and devour each one with a frevor that is only matched by the speed in which we go and buy the books every time one comes out! We have such a love/hate relationship with the characters and we're usually left with a roller coaster of emotional wreckage whenever we finish reading. We MUST know what will happen next to Jonas and Princess Cleo and what devious, cray cray plans Magnus has in store!
