Blog Tour: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes & Giveaway!

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?

QUESTion: Which country has the most power: Auranos, Limeros, or Paelsia?

Excerpt: “I never said she was evil. Nor was she good. Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is also darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It’s something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist. What might not be evil to you could be evil to someone else.” – Chapter 17, FALLING KINGDOMS

From Morgan: The three lands in Falling Kingdoms are all very different—icy Limeros, impoverished Paelsia, and affluent Auranos. Together, they form the land of Mytica, a small continent approximately the size of England.

In such close quarters, things can get heated, especially when two out of three of the kingdoms seem cursed. Limeros is slowly freezing over, Paelsia is wasting away. Auranos, the rich country with everything going for it, seems to be the one with all the power—and they aren’t reaching their hand out to help their troubled neighbors. Paelsia, despite its squalor and difficulties, remains very proud—perhaps too proud for its own good. And Limeros…well, it’s got a king with a secret agenda he’s meaning to implement as soon as the time is right. All three lands and those who lead them are interested in two things: survival and power.

Bottom line, there is no black and white in Mytica, only a really large and delicious palette of gray. Some kingdoms are just a little darker or lighter gray than others.
