Blog Tour: Rebel Spring | Morgan Rhodes | Falling Kingdoms/Rebel Spring Soundtrack

Welcome to the REBEL SPRING blog tour! In honor of the second installment of the Falling Kingdoms series, we’ve asked author Morgan Rhodes to share her thoughts on fantasy, how the characters in REBEL SPRING differ from the modern teen, and more. Keep an eye out this week for all five of Morgan’s posts!

Check out our review of Rebel Spring & Falling Kingdoms.

Falling Kingdoms/Rebel Spring Soundtrack

When writing a book, I like to pick songs that invoke a mood or represent a character. For the Falling Kingdoms series, the best overall “mood invoker” is an instrumental soundtrack that encompassed the sweeping, fantastical feel of the story, the Invincible album from Two Steps From Hell. Check it out, it’s seriously epic.

I also picked theme songs for each of my main four characters last year when Falling Kingdoms came out, each song representing where the character was during that book. I thought I’d update this list with their soundtrack song from Rebel Spring to represent their change (or lack there of) so far over the course of the two books.

Cleo’s the princess of the now-conquered Auranos, the formerly privileged, golden kingdom. She was once a spoiled brat, but now her courage and strength are being put to the test as she does whatever it takes to reclaim her stolen throne.

Magnus is the son of the evil King Gaius, who survives by creating a practiced mask of indifference that helps him appear just as cold and merciless as his father…even if, beneath it all, he may be anything but.

Lucia is Magnus’s younger sister, a princess raised in a harsh and disciplined palace who has a prophesied magic within her that is growing every day, making her a potentially dangerous and uncontrollable sorceress.

The youngest son of a poor merchant in Paelsia, Jonas developed a thirst for vengeance when his brother was killed by a royal, an act that triggered a revolution in the three kingdoms that led to war and a slow realization that he was fighting for the wrong side. Now Jonas is devoted to rebellion and finding a way to put an end to King Gaius’s reign.

About Morgan Rhodes:

Morgan Rhodes lives in Ontario, Canada. As a child, she always wanted to be a princess -- the kind that knows how to wield a sharp sword to help save both kingdoms and princes from fire-breathing dragons and dark wizards. Instead, she became a writer, which is just as good and much less dangerous. Along with writing, Morgan enjoys photography, travel, reality TV, and is an extremely picky, yet voracious reader of all kinds of books. Under another pen name, she’s a national bestselling author of many paranormal novels. Falling Kingdoms is her first high fantasy.
