When I got the invite to participate in the blog tour for Crystal Storm, I couldn’t reply fast enough.


I have loved each book more than the one before it and before I tell you guys my top reasons for reading, let’s check out the book!

23367261Title: Crystal Storm {Falling Kingdoms #5}
Author: Morgan Rhodes
Pub Date: December 13, 2016
Publisher: Razorbill
Find it: Penguin | Indiebound | B&N | Amazon | Goodreads

An epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.

MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he’s no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption.

LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise.

JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey.

AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she’ll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge.

And what kind of darkness will descend–and who will be safe–after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?

Sounds good, right?


Top Five Reasons to read the Falling Kingdoms series

Kick-ass women: Literally.  The women in this series are strong and they fight and have magic and I love all of them.  Even the ones I hate. *whispers* Especially the ones I hate.

Stubborn and brooding men: All of the men in this book are brats and it’s absolutely amusing to read the women hand them their asses. I especially love Magnus. He is my little marshmallow and I love the scenes with him and Cleo. And I had so many feels while reading CK.

Magic: And lots of it. There are sorcerers and sorceresses, immortals and gods, and all sorts of magic-y things.

The Kissing: Yeah…does this even need an explanation?

Because I said so? By now, you have to know that I’m quite picky about my high fantasy books.  I will admit that it took me a book to get fully into it, but now I’m obsessed and I need people to flail with.


5295120Morgan Rhodes lives in Ontario, Canada. As a child, she always wanted to be a princess — the kind that knows how to wield a sharp sword to help save both kingdoms and princes from fire-breathing dragons and dark wizards. Instead, she became a writer, which is just as good and much less dangerous.

Along with writing, Morgan enjoys photography, travel, reality TV, and is an extremely picky, yet voracious reader of all kinds of books. Under another pen name, she’s a national bestselling author of many paranormal novels.
