Magic, politics, and a rebellious princess. How could I NOT pick this up?
The story was told in multiple POVs from people all over the kingdom. It was incredible being able to look at the downfall of the kingdoms from all of these different characters. I always felt conflicted when something terrible happens because I could understand it from both perspectives.
There was something that bothered me through out the whole story that I couldn’t put my finger on. It was until Stacy from Girls in the Stacks pointed out on my goodreads that the speech patterns were very modern for an archaic world. One of my favorite things about books set in different periods are the unique speech patterns and that made it difficult to fully enter the world inside Falling Kingdoms because of the modern speech.
There were so many things happening at once. Falling Kingdoms was an intense book full of plot twists, chaotic battles, and betrayals. I was still able to enjoy this book, but I ended up not loving it as much as I thought I would.
