Modern-day sisters discover deadly ancient magic in book 1 of this Falling Kingdoms spin-off series!
Worlds collide in this suspenseful, page-turning Falling Kingdoms spin-off series, which explores a whole new side of Mytica—and an even darker version of its magic.
Crystal Hatcher, Modern-day Toronto: It’s a normal afternoon in her mother’s antique bookshop when Crys witnesses the unthinkable: her little sister Becca collapses into a coma after becoming mesmerized by a mysterious book written in an unrecognizable language.
Maddox Corso, Ancient Mytica: Maddox Corso doesn’t think much of it when he spots an unfamiliar girl in his small village. Until, that is, he realizes that she is a spirit, and he is the only one who can see or hear her. Her name is Becca Hatcher, and she needs Maddox to help get her home.
Farrell Grayson, Modern-day Toronto: Rich and aimless Farrell Grayson is thrilled when the mysterious leader of the ultra-secret Hawkspear Society invites him into the fold. But when he learns exactly what he has to do to prove himself, Farrell starts to question everything he thought he knew about family, loyalty, and himself….
Fate has brought these young people together, but ancient magic threatens to rip them apart.
So yeah, this book is PHENOMENAL! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!! It has it all! ALL! From adventures to mystery to romance to OMG WHAT IS GOING ON! Oh, the betrayals! What a sweet taste! But the best thing about this book is the love for a family. What one is capable of doing for a crazy, annoying nerdy-like family member! The sacrifices one is willing to take. Truly love conquers all.
I usually read a book like there is no tomorrow but with A Book of Spirits and Thieves, I had to take my time. This book drew me in like no other book. The book. To read. A book filled with magic. A book filled with wonders.
The characters, they are all loveable. Even the one that is biwitched to follow an evil man. Knowing him, before this spell was cast upon him and seeing how it has affected him, you just want him to battle it out and conquer. Gosh, I loved them all. From the Crys, the girl that tend to ignore her younger sister, Becca. To the Grayson brothers. And who wouldn’t love Maddox?!
Can I just say this - READ A Book of Spirits and Thieves!! A must read! Trust me, you will be thanking me later.
