This series starts out great!!! But the last book is a disappointment if you don't mind that then this is a great book.

Let me start out by saying that I accidentally read the second book first. It captured my attention immediately and didn't let go once. That was two or three years ago, and when I saw this book, I snatched it up at once. But at first, I found the book slow and hard to get into. This problem evaporated after the first third of the book, maybe a little sooner. Then I found just two other mino quibbles. When it tells the backstory of Sorahb and his mother and father, at some parts the voice of this story changed. It would sound formal, then in the next sentance, it would sound more causal-21st-century-like. That only happened a few times, though. Also, in part of the backstory, Rostam and Tahmina were only married for one day because he rode away after a huge argument with his father-in-law. This seemed a bit unlikely to me. I mean, they were supposedly deeply in love, yet he couldn't remember/didn't dare take her with him. Come on, how could he forget to take her? And she was his wife; why would he not dare to take her with him? That didn't ring true. Other than these little quibbles, I really enjoyed this book. Highly reccommended!

Im very picky when it comes to what i read but i absolutely loved this one! I told multiple friends to read it, who liked it. Hilari really thought everything through, making the country and world highly believable. Loved the characters, really got me into the plot. I enjoyed who she wrote it as it is, not trying to pretty up or censor facts of war. I would say READ IT!!!!

The characters were very detailed. The story got better as it went a long. It was hard to put down. I couldn't wait to get the next two in the series.

Fall of a Kingdom was a title I picked up for its cover art. I had the book for about three months before I actually got into the story. I found the story a bit slow in the beginning, but then what story isn't? Once I got to know the characters the story took off I couldn't wait to read what happened next to each of the characters. I loved how Bell wrote each chapter from the view of one of her three main characters, Jiann, Soraya, and Kavi. Honestly the story only gets better and more interesting as the trilogy unfolds. I enjoyed this book but the 2nd and 3rd in the series are truly amazing works of art that every reader of fantasy should read. 5 stars for the Farsala Trilogy.

I like this book but I think it leaves a bit to be desired. Soraya is capable of greatness and great kindness but is held pack by her anger, vanity, and down right bratiness. Jiaan is sweet, handsome, and brave but has been beaten down so much by others that he does not think he is capable of being a true leader and excellent warrior he is. Kavi I at least understand but he thinks to quickly and not enough and ends up regreting things when all he really wants is peace. The author has the power in the next installments of the trilogy to make Soraya the amazing warrior princess she was born to be, to make Jiaan the confident commander and superb warrior his father would be proud of, and to make Kavi a master spy and a man with his heart to a cause instead of a confused traitor who has a good heart but dosen't know how to use it. I also really want to see team work between the three main characters and love between them. Also while I love action and politics I think Bell did a little to much setting up for the story in this first book instead of actually telling it. However I can't wait to read the others and hope that they are a bit better than this one.
