“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Falling Kingdoms
By: Morgan Rhodes

Sixteen-year-old Cleo has grown up in luxury, the royal heiress to a prosperous kingdom. But beneath her nation’s seemingly peaceful surface lies dangerous unrest. Whispers of war are growing ever louder—intensified by a murderous incident for which Cleo’s betrothed, Aron, is accused.

Amidst the ongoing intrigue, Cleo has a more desperate mission. She defies her father’s orders and sets off on a secret and perilous journey into a neighboring country, seeking a magic long thought to be mythical. If it’s real, it could be the cure that heals her ailing sister. If it’s only legend, Cleo will be stranded in a kingdom that has just declared war on her own.

This sensational series debut melds intricate storylines with unforgettable characters and vibrantly imagined magic. Falling Kingdoms is ideal for fans of Kristin Cashore, Cinda Williams Chima, and George R.R. Martin.

Oh man. Ever since I heard about this one in late February, I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind! Will this be the new series that I will be craving after the conclusion of Cinda Williams Chima’s series this year? I think I will not rest until this baby is in my hands.

  1. I saw this one somewhere else already, but I didn't pay it any attention then, because while the cover looks really great, the position seems incredibly uncomfortable. LOL

  2. This one sounds so awesome! I'm dying to read this one. I can't wait until it comes out. Even the cover just screams awesomeness. Great pick 🙂

  3. I saw this a few weeks ago someplace and knew I had to have it too – it's a little off the path of what I normally read or for the blog but it sounds so good that I'm just buying it for a pure pleasure read. I love seeing it on your list!

  4. I've not heard of this before, but it sounds fantastic! So many things are going on! Privileged upbringing? Betrothed accused of a murderous incident? an ailing sister? defying her father?? It's all just so much! I have to read it just to find it all out haha.

    Great pick, thanks for sharing!

    I like your font. Did you change it or has it always been that type?
