Title: Falling Kingdoms
Author: Morgan Rhodes
My Rating: 4.5/5
If you don’t know what this book is about pretty much all you need to know is that it has been referred to as the YA Game of Thrones because of the multiple character POVs and the politics that is laced throughout this novel.
This is the first book in an epic young adult fantasy series and I can already tell that this is going to end up being one of my favorite series!
There were so many things I loved about this book! The world building was not too overwhelming but it was very immersive and I could really see the landscapes of the different Kingdoms and villages in this novel.
There was a very interesting added element about the belief system that the characters have and I found that part of the world very interesting and I can tell it will be a major part of the future novels!
The characters were all very likable but it did take a little while for me to really love a few of them but after that I was hooked! They’re all very funny and I enjoyed reading from all of the narrators’ perspectives.
There is a hint of magic in this first book and I loved the introduction of that part of the world because I’m a sucker for anything magic related.
This book was also very fast paced! There wasn’t a momeremnberingnt where I was bored because there was always heavy amounts of action and conflict consistently throughout the novel!
The only thing that kept me from giving this book a full 5/5 stars was that the plot was a bit predictable but, that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book at all!
If you like fantasy or want to get into it I’d definitely recommend giving this series a try!! I know that the list of names in the beginning makes it seem very intimidating but I didn’t even refer back to the list because I had no problems remembering all of the characters.
My Song Recommendation for Falling Kingdoms is:
P.S. (Would you guys be interested in non-spoiler reviews for each book in this series or only this one?)
