Title: Gathering Darkness
   Author: Morgan Rhodes
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: December 9th, 2014

     In GATHERING DARKNESS, book three of the New York Times bestselling Falling Kingdoms series, the stakes have never been higher as three teams push forward on a race to find the Kindred, the four elemental crystals possessing ancient all-powerful magic, first:

     Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred - the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic...

     • THE KRAESHIANS join the hunt. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the wealthy kingdom across the Silver Sea, charm and manipulate their way to the Kindred, proving to be more ruthless than perhaps even the King of Blood himself.

     • THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo and vengeful Jonas lead them, slaying with sweetness, skill, and a secret that can control Lucia's overpowering magic - all so they can use the Kindred to win back their fallen kingdoms.

     • 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.

     The only certainty in the dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica... but fate can be fickle when magic is involved.

My Stance:

     The third installment in The Falling Kingdoms series is coming out next week and while I have only read the first book. That book got me into fantasy faster than any other book prior. I love Melina Marchetta but Morgan Rhodes just does such a great job managing multiple groups and allowing the reader to understand what their culture/lifestyle is like, and why they act in certain ways. How the three integrated together and how they all were part of a war brewing just drove me insane int hat world, I loved it.

     I highly anticipate this book to do well, I love how she's on the same track and the second book is high on my TBR list. In fact, I think I think it's next after the book I am on. I honestly can't wait to binge the two together so I may hold off till it comes out. If you want a fantasy book that's just spectacular, this would be the one.
