"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:




Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1) 
Title: Falling Kingdoms
Author: Morgan Rhodes
 Publication Date: December 11, 2012 by Razorbill

Description: 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?

  1. This one looks interesting, I'm worried about the 4 main characters, I'm not a huge fan of alternating perspective unless it is done really well. Great pick!

    My WOW
