Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
Release Date: December 3, 2013
Summary (from Goodreads):
Love, power, and magic collide with war in the second book of the Falling Kingdoms series
Auranos has fallen and the three kingdoms—Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia—are now united as one country called Mytica. But still, magic beckons, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the world...
When the evil King Gaius announces that a road is to be built into the Forbidden Mountains, formally linking all of Mytica together, he sets off a chain of events that will forever change the face of this land, forcing Cleo the dethroned princess, Magnus the reluctant heir, Lucia the haunted sorceress, and Jonas the desperate rebel to take steps they never could have imagined.
As soon as I finished reading Falling Kingdoms, I was already desperately awaiting the release of the second book in the series. It was an awesome, fast-paced introduction to a fantastical world filled with magic and dark forces, and I couldn't wait to delve right back into it with Rebel Spring. I'm sure Morgan Rhodes will push the central characters—Cleo, Jonas, Magnus, and Lucia—further than they've ever been pushed before, and more pain and heartache will be in their futures before anything can get better. Everyone will be struggling to place themselves in a position of power in Rebel Spring, but who will succeed?
