ABOUT GATHERING DARKNESSThe seeds of revolution have been sown…but in Mytica the lust for power reigns supreme.

THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo slays with sweetness—and a secret that might control Lucia’s magic—as she and vengeful Jonas lead the hunt for the all-powerful Kindred. THE KRAESHIANS join the fray. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the vast kingdom across the Silver Sea, prove to be just as ruthless as they are charming as they manipulate their way to victory. THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally, in the flesh, with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia’s powers to unveil the Kindred.

And which side will Prince Magnus choose, now that everyone he’s been betrayed by everyone he’s ever loved?


In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten.  And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering.

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 love.

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. 


Morgan Rhodes is the New York Times bestselling author of the FALLING KINGDOMS series. As a child, she always wanted to be a princess—the king 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, and reality TV, and is an extremely picky yet voracious reader of all kinds of books.

Top Ten Tuesday #12 - Ten Books I'm Looking Forward To Reading in 2015

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish

Hello and welcome to this week's Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic is 10 Books I'm Looking Forward to Reading in 2015. Since my last two Top Ten Tuesday posts (here and here) featured 2015 releases, I tried to create a list of other 2015 releases I'm looking forward to reading, that I haven't previously been mentioned. Here are 10 Books I Can't Wait To Read in 2015. 

Lady Midnight: The Dark Artifices #1 by Cassandra Clare
I don't think there's much to say about this, other than I wish this book was already in my hands!
This is a sequel I can not wait to read! If you've not yet read about Julie's dragons, you are missing out!
Leigh Bardugo has a new book coming out!!! I will read anything she writes. I can't wait for this one.
I LOVE Kasie's YA Contemporary books. If you know me, you know how picky I am when it comes to YA contempt. I adore her books and can not wait to read this one. 
This is another author and series I LOVE!! I would complain if this book was released, oh say this month. 
I'm really looking forward to reading this one! This is another fabulous YA series I recommend picking up. One word, Gargoyles. 
I've really enjoyed this series, and I'm excited for book three to be released. 
YES please on this release! We are huge fans of Rachel's and this series is fabulous. 
Wendy is another author I adore, and I'm really looking forward to this book! Go pick up this series if you've not yet read it. 
CARRIE RYAN has a new YA book coming out!! I can not wait to read it!

These are just a few of the 2015 releases I can not wait to read. What are some of yours?
