I titled 2018 “The Year of Fantasy” for myself. So far, I haven’t let it live up to that sadly but hey, the entire year’s awaiting. I mean I definitely planned to finish a couple more books by the month of January and catch up to some of these, but being a mood reader, I strayed from my path (guilty as charged) and just read other things. There’s also the matter of me suddenly hitting a reading slump out of nowhere, but I blame that on my exam jitters.
But the rest of the year is still left (where I’ll be occupied on the first half, but the last 6 months, I plan to read without pause *please don’t let another reading slump hit me, thanks) and with that, I can HOPEFULLY fly through these books.
P.s-I’m leaving out the sequels/standalones that are to be released this year and I am keen to delve into, but they’ve already been mentioned on this post. Be sure to check it out!
1. Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes
Synopsis of Falling Kingdoms (Book #1):
In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.
As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed… and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.
The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?
It’s the eve of war…. Choose your side.
Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.
Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.
Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.
Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword….
This series has been on my TBR for a while now. I’ve been putting it off to find time but then I just figured I wait till the final book comes out and marathon it. It’s coming out on the 6th of February this year, so it seems like the perfect time to get started with this series. I’ve heard such good things and along with the intriguing synopsis and beautiful covers, I am so excited to begin.
