Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
I am terribly missing Game of Thrones so I decided to read the Falling Kingdoms series. This series is just as amazing as GOT! So if you're looking for read to calm your GOT nerves, then go read this series! I am on the second book at the moment but here are few quotes I loved on the first book (some of these quotes, Tyrion would approve!):
“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It's something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist. What might not be evil to you could be evil to someone else. Knowing this makes us powerful even without magic.”
“Even paradise could become a prison if one had enough time to take notice of the walls.”
“Love is stronger than anger. Love is stronger then hate-stronger than anything. Remember that.”
“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is also darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light?”
“Follow you heart wherever it leads. Appreciate life, Cleo. It's a gift that can be stolen at any time.”
Falling Kingdoms #1
Author: Morgan Rhodes
Reading Level: Young Adult
Released: December 11th 2012
In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.
As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed... and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.
The only outcome that's certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?
It's the eve of war.... Choose your side.
Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.
Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people's revolution centuries in the making.
Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.
Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realise that the heart can be more lethal than the sword....
