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?
 
Why am I eagerly waiting on this?  This book sounds like a truly epic adventure!  I haven't read many high fantasy novels lately (Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series just about did me in and I'm still not finished with the series...lol).  But, I'm really excited about this book and I think it's going to be a great beginning to an intriguing fantasy series!  And I really love what they've done with the cover...it's really stunning!
 
What are you eagerly waiting on?
