Waiting on Wednesday: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.
Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)
Hardcover, 412 pages
Expected publication: December 11th 2012 by Razorbill
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?

"Falling Kingdoms will gut you emotionally. It will make you ache, cry, and beg for the sequel as you turn the last page. I absolutely loved it."--Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Queen

"This triple-layered tale of bloodshed, heartbreak, and tangled court intrigue kept me turning pages very late into the night."--Lesley Livingston, award-winning author of Wondrous Strange.
Why I am Waiting?
This book is definitely one for me. I have been waiting for it ever since Penguin announced their Breathless Reads. This book has everything. Magic has been forgotten. Deadly unrest is simmering. Three Kingdoms grapple for power. Betrayals, Bargains and Battles. Four Young Adult Characters. Kingdoms will definitely Fall. I will be reading this book the moment I can get my hands on it and I really can't wait. =]

  3. What?? This book looks ridiculously awesome. Must have. Immediately.

  4. I want this book too!! Great pick! Thanks so much for spotlighting it today. Please check out my WoW!

  5. I am thinking about getting this one too! Mostly because I looooooooove Maria V. Snyder's series, her three trilogies all deal with magic in a "past like" setting. So with that atmosphere in mind, but in a completely different setting, I think this is definitely one I NEED to get!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
