Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway: Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes

Welcome to my stop in the FROZEN TIDES by Morgan Rhodes Blog Tour hosted by Penguin Teen. Today on my stop we have my Review of FROZEN TIDES + an awesome Giveaway!!!

Frozen Tides #4

Morgan Rhodes
(Falling Kingdoms #4)
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Published: December 15, 2015


Rebels, royals, and monsters wage war over the Mytican throne in the shocking fourth book of the Falling Kingdoms series, from New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes.

CLEO: Reeling after a bloody showdown in Limeros ending with Amara’s abduction of the water crystal, and a vacancy in the Mytican throne, Princess Cleo must cast aside her feelings and look toward her kingdom with the eyes of a Queen.

MAGNUS: With the kingdom in chaos, Princess Lucia still missing and quite possibly in danger, and a shocking realization about Cleo, the steely prince is once again torn between love and duty, leaving him wondering whether he’s strong enough to rule his people.

LUCIA: The young sorcercess has had her vengeance after the cruel death of her first and only love. Heartbroken and unable to trust anyone, she allies with the awoken Fire god, who also seeks revenge.

JONAS: After escaping death by the skin of his teeth, the defeated rebel—along with a mysterious stranger–leader reunites with Princess Cleo, only to find himself a mere pawn in a dangerous hunt for the elusive Kindred.

KING GAIUS: Abandoned by Melenia and betrayed by his own children, Gaius flees Mytica and sails to Kraeshia, where he attempts to ally with the famously brutal emperor across the Silver Sea.



FROZEN TIDES was such an amazing sequel that I couldn't get enough of! I've been a huge fan of this series since reading the first book FALLING KINGDOM back in 2012 and falling madly in love. But this series seriously just keeps getting better an better with each book! I think this book may be my absolute favorite in the whole series! But haha, I say that about all these books when I'm done reading!!!

As always in this series the world building was phenomenal! Built on broken kingdoms, all the characters fighting for something different, yet intertwined with each other one way or another. And bitter sweet romances to swoon you into awe, with fierce magic that's pulsing, scheming political intrigue, and enough twist and turns to have you on the edge of your seat!! FROZEN TIDES definitely did not disappoint!!

This book had me staying up late demanding just one more chapter! I was instantly hooked from the very beginning and never lost interest! Even when it was over I was still daydreaming about this book and everything that happened, and was predicting what would happen in the next book!!

Overall, FROZEN TIDES was a fantastic addition to the Falling Kingdoms series that I think any Young Adult fantasy fan would love! It's easy to fall head first into this series with all the different characters and plots twist going on at the same time. And usually I would say that it was too much to have so many characters and individual stories going on at once, but Rhodes made it work and made it just that much intense and thrilling!! I'm sooo excited for book five releasing next year!!

Morgan Rhodes is the New York Times bestselling author of the FALLING KINGDOMS series. As a child, she always wanted to be a princess—the kind that knows how to wield a sharp sword to help save both kingdoms and princes from fire-breathing dragons and dark wizards. Instead, she became a writer, which is just as good and much less dangerous. Along with writing, Morgan enjoys photography, travel, and reality TV, and is an extremely picky yet voracious reader of all kinds of books.
