    My Thoughts: Love doesn't even encompass the emotion and feeling

    My Thoughts:
    Love doesn't even encompass the emotion and feelings that spring forth when this series, Falling Kingdoms, crosses my mind. 
    Just gazing at the cover of the second novel, Rebel Spring, I get this tingling sensation all over my body.  It's just so hard not to get caught up in this book because there is so much going on in it.  But the story isn't crowded at all; on the contrary, every move made in this story is a tactical one.  It is another step in the seeming direction of the overall thrilling plot arc. 
    No matter how tiny each detail is, it is another scene that contributes to the entire story line.  That is FANTASTIC writing! There is no filler, no excess.  Everything in this story has a purpose and a reason for it.
    This is superb writing that supersedes just one genre.  Of course there is young adult fantasy, but then there is romance, and a lot of thriller vibe going on. 
    Actually the romance seems to take a backseat to all the power struggles that seem to be taking place.  I think I would compare it to these reality shows, The Real Housewives franchise.  The royalty in Rebel Spring could put all of those people to shame.  These power struggles are deceitful, intense and downright evil. 
    And let's just say, I definitely would not want to be a servant in the Danora household.  Servants do not seem to last long here.




    Rebel Spring really dives deeper into the lore of the Watchers and Kindred as we learn more about Luica's power and the golden hawks peering down.  I love how Morgan Rhodes writes these complex and difficult characters, who may be good inside but have to show a completely different personality to literally survive in this world where danger comes from the ones closest to them. 
    I'm in awe of how she writes characters that would usually be classified as weak but she gives them ethereal strength to them. 
    Princess Cleo is one of these characters.  Her enemies always underestimate her, seeing her as a weak and spoiled princess.  That is their undoing.  I love that she gets to prove these people wrong constantly.
    Jonas is another character that makes me smile whenever he "walks" into a chapter.  But I am also a slight fan of Prince Magnus-so you can see that I am torn between sides.  And I think that is exactly what Rhodes wants us to be.  She wants to make it hard for us to pick one character and be completely on their side because each one has good and bad traits, just like in real life.
    Another series I could compare to Falling Kingdoms is The Walking Dead.  Okay, wait, here me out first.  I know there isn't any undead in Mythica; but let's say loss prevention isn't important in either series.  You cannot get attached to any one character because chances are they aren't going to last long....in either series.  It seems Rhodes likes to torture us with killing off characters I didn't like losing.  No one is safe.  (And that  is how they are similar)
    So yeah, there were a few deaths that left me saying, out loud, "What the hell just happened?"
    But even with that, I wouldn't change a thing about Rebel Spring because every single situation, good or bad, plays into the bigger picture. And the conclusion of this story is going to be epic.  I can feel it in my bones. 
    This is one of those stories that I wish there was a rating for a million hearts, a million stars, just a million of anything.  But it has already captured my own beating heart and holds it in its magic forever; 5 hearts will just have to suffice.
    But a slight plea, if you may:  Please don't destroy my heart too terribly as the story progresses further.

    Rebel Spring is definitely a worthy sequel to Falling Kingdoms,

    Rebel Spring is definitely a worthy sequel to Falling Kingdoms, a book that I found myself deeply attached to, and is probably better than the first.  It's filled with so many complicated and multi-faceted characters, particularly Magnus and Cleo (who are undeniably my two favorite characters).  It is also great for people that enjoy political intrigue, romance (including arranged marriages), war, and a magical parallel universe that is essential to the survival of their world. Definitely had me gripped from start to finish and I can't wait for the next book!

    Pretty good

    I liked it overall, but I really hate some of the characters. For instance, whenever someone called Cleo a whore or slut, I wouldn't agree. But as her story went on, I found myself agreeing with them.

    Lucia didn't feel important at all, no matter how much they tried to make her seem so. She only had a couple of boring, I'm-falling-in-love-with-a-2000-year-old-guy twilight B.S. She did get more intersting near the end, thankfully.

    However, Jonas and Magnus are my two favorite characters. Both struggle with their desicions and the need for revenge.

    Love this book just as much as the first :)
