Waiting On Wednesday (14)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights books that we can't wait to read!

This week's WoW is......Falling Kingdoms!
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
Goodreads Summary:
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?
My Thoughts:
This one sounds like a keeper! I'm a sucker for stories with magical plots and fierce battles. And I can't wait to read about the world where this book takes place. I'm always up for some good worldbuilding! Hopefully I'm not disappointed. xD The cover looks ominous and mysterious as well. A cloak. A dagger. Who is he?!
