    DREAM MAGIC Release Week #Giveaway

    I am super excited to be offering up a copy of DREAM MAGIC by Joshua Khan, for giveaway. DREAM MAGIC is “an immersive high fantasy middle grade stand-alone novel, the second in the Shadow Magic series.”

    This series looked so awesome that I just had to go out and buy both books for my Kindle and I can’t wait to read them.

    And if I wasn’t already convinced, here’s what best-selling author Rick Riordan has to say –

    “If you are pining for that thrill you felt when you first discovered Harry Potter […] here is a fantasy world you will lose yourself in. I defy you not to love this story.”

    DREAM MAGIC released this week and if you’d like to know more about it and the first book in the series, SHADOW MAGIC, scroll down for more info.

    I hadn’t heard much about this new book by Morgan Rhodes (a.k.a. Michelle Rowen) until I checked its description out on Goodreads. And when I did… Oh. My. Gosh. It sounded absolutely amazing! I may even have gotten a chill or two while reading the description. So of course I had to pre-order it. And of course I had to make FALLING KINGDOMS the book to watch this week.

    This may be classified as high or epic fantasy. But to me this book just sounds epic. As if “betrayals, bargains, and battles” weren’t enough to entice me to read this book, there’s a princess, a rebel, a girl with a supernatural legacy and a boy “bred for aggression.”

    I cannot WAIT to meet Cleo, Jonas, Lucia and Magnus and find out how all their paths cross and how their fates are “forever intertwined.” Each character sounds so very different and I’m excited to meet them all to see who my favorites will be.

    The description and book’s title promises that kingdoms will fall. I am so super anxious to see just how that happens. I’m sure there will be nail-biting suspense a plenty in this book and that the battles will be every bit as action-packed as I anticipate they will be.

    I’m so glad that I hadn’t heard about this book too early or the wait for FALLING KINGDOMS would have been way too torturous. But now that release date is almost here, I can’t wait to add this book to the top of the pile.

    With three kingdoms “grappling for power” in a land where magic has been forgotten and “deadly unrest is simmering” and four wicked awesome characters to meet, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that FALLING KINGDOMS deserves the spotlight and is the book to watch for the week of December 11th.

    About the Book

    Goodreads Description:

    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?
