I have been a long time fan of Morgan Rhodes and the Falling Kingdoms series. These books have been so much fun to read and just look at those covers. I am so excited to have Morgan Rhodes here on my blog today.
About the Book
An epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.
MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he’s no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption. LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise. JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey. AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she’ll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge. And what kind of darkness will descend–and who will be safe–after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?
Author Guest Post
Throughout the series so many of your characters have changed allegiance and grown in so many ways. Has there been a specific character that has surprised you the most as you’ve written the series? Which one and why?
If we take the one character I believe has grown up the most over the six books of the Falling Kingdoms series, I would have to pick Princess Lucia Damora. The adopted (aka: kidnapped from her birth parents) daughter of King Gaius, the “King of Blood”, Lucia is the subject of a prophecy that she’s a sorceress. The king wished to use her magic to strengthen his reign. When we first meet Lucia, she is overprotected and naïve and has no clue about these rumors
Through many painful lessons, Lucia goes on a journey where she went from denial to acceptance of her magic; from hate and blame over those she feels have betrayed her; and to the knowledge that if she isn’t part of the solution, she’s part of the problem. Lucia has made a lot of mistakes throughout the series, and is an excellent example of “power corrupts.”
The only question remaining is, in IMMORTAL REIGN, the sixth and final book in the series, will Lucia finally step up and use her magic for the greater good?
