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 these dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica. . . . but the four element gods of the Kindred have other plans. @goodreads
There are a few people in this book that made me rage!
You have King Gaius who is beyond! And what he did to Gregor in front of Lysandra. I CAN'T EVEN!
Another one I didn't like was Melenia. She was just evil and did stupid stuff over what she thought was love.
AMARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her and King Gaius can be thrown on the same fire pit!
I'm on the fence with Prince Magnus, I mean he did one good thing for Cleo. I love Cleo by the way she's so strong and her character is easy to like. And I love Lysandra and Nic.
Jonas, he's a nerd but he tries. lol
Felix . . . hmmm
I want to know more about the Kindred and what's going to happen when they all get the crystals.
Sounds all crazy doesn't it? There's kingdoms that hate one another, naturally. Magic, betrayal, love, and some other crazy going on.
Alexius and Lucia *sob*
All I know is that I hope some evil people get theirs in the next book, or the next one, or the next one. You get what I mean.
Her magic burned withing her, her ring blazed on her finger, but despite the pain and suffering of this night, she'd never felt more powerful in her entire life.
"Will you help me?" he asked again when silence fell between them.
He was dangerous--she felt it down in her very soul. The price of this young man's freedom would be forged from pain, death, and fire.
"Yes," she said.
The single word sealed her fate.
Standing there on the steep Limerian cliffs, she was ready to watch the world burn.
and thus it begins
