Description



About the Book



Includes an excerpt to Rebel Spring, the second book in the series.



Book Synopsis



War brought them together. Love will tear them apart.

Princess Cleo of Mytica confronts violence for the first time in her life when a shocking murder sets her kingdom on a path to collapse. Once a privileged royal, Cleo must now summon the strength to survive in this new world and fight for her rightful place as Queen.

The King of Limeros's son, Magnus, must plan each footstep with shrewd, sharp guile if he is to earn his powerful father's trust, while his sister, Lucia, discovers a terrifying secret about her heritage that will change everything.

Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished--and finds himself the leader of a people's revolution centuries in the making.

Witches, if found, are put to death, and Watchers, immortal beings who take the shape of hawks to visit the human world, have been almost entirely forgotten. A vicious power struggle quickly escalates to war, and these four young people collide against each other and the rise of elementia, the magic that can topple kingdoms and crown a ruler in the same day.



Review Quotes

"In this Game of Thrones-esque high fantasy, Rhodes has created a world that's raging with war, deceit, spoiled royals, and a populous needing little to spark a revolution." --NPR/WAMC's The Roundtable

What a great start to this series! When I read that there were 4 main characters I obviously expected that they'd all end up together halfway through the book. Instead, this is more of an epic fantasy series, where you're following several story lines. The characters are going to have great growth, I can feel it, especially since this isn't a trilogy. Excited for book two!
