Review: Gathering Darkness By: Morgan Rhodes

Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3)Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The wait was worth it!!!!!

The continuation of the Falling Kingdoms Series - Book 3 - one word - Exceptional!!

Okay, we left off with the wedding of Cleo and Magnus, with King Gaius taking over the lands and building a road that his Melenia was telling him to do - in blood, with Jonas being an outlaw, Lucia developing her power and Cleo knowing that her ring has something to do with calming her...

This one has more involvement of The Watchers - enter Alexius, in mortal form. Enter Felix, a mysterious stranger that helps Jonas, with an interesting twist. Enter a Kraeshia Princess Amara, who will stop at nothing to get what she wants which is power, and her brother Prince Ashur, who finds something better in the most unlikely of places. Magnus finds out the truth behind his mother's death, and there is something deeper that seems to be developing between him and Cleo. Nic also plays a deeper role in this book.

I must say, without giving too much away, Lucia begins to develop her power, the stones are hunted. This is a really exciting book, with each character racing to get ahead of the other. The ending if you know where the stones are and who has what - WOW! And the last chapter had me holding my breath and filled with theories. Can't wait for the next.
