"In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects' lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined:
Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.
Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people's revolution centuries in the making.
Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.
Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword. . . .
The only outcome that's certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?"

I've heard this be compared to the Game of Thrones but for teens. I haven't read that book yet.
However I was enchanted from the start by Falling Kingdoms, Morgan did an amazing job describing the world. I loved the characters and love the setting of the story. I wasn't sure how it was going to end. I am looking forward to picking up the next installment in the series.
This has become a new favorite series of mine.
If you love fantasy, romance, an amazing heroine, and multiple characters this book is for you!!
Check it out, 5/5 stars, happy reading, ashley
