Falling Kingdoms
by Morgan Rhodes

Synopsis:
In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.

As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed... and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.

The only outcome that's certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

It's the eve of war.... Choose your side.

Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.

Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people's revolution centuries in the making.

Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realise that the heart can be more lethal than the sword....
As happens quite often now, this one was placed on my Wishlist by none other than BookTuber, Jessethereader (whose channel you should check out as soon as you're done here!). Jesse has managed to put so many books on my Wishlist and on my shelves in the past few months, and so far I have agreed with his tastes when I have gotten around to reading whatever he has recommended. The most recent of these reads was Where Things Come Back, which was fantastic and I can see why he goes on about it so much.
This was featured on his series TBR video that he filmed recently, and it sounds so great that I thought I would get it straight onto the Wishlist. I'm sure it won't be long until this is also on my shelves waiting for my more immediate attention!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

This one is on my radar, too! I don't read much High Fantasy, but this series sounds like one I'd like. :D
