Publisher's Summary

Love, vengeance, and greed spark a deadly quest for magic in the third book of the Falling Kingdoms series
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 fate can be fickle when magic is involved.

Not my favorite series

Any additional comments?

Finally, some progress in the storyline is made! But I'm actually kind of bored with it none the less. I'm not sure if this series is worth investing so much time in. The characters are shallow, annoying, so angst-y, and predictable for the most part. Thus far I have been interested enough to see where the story is headed but after this book I'm not sure if I'll stick with it. It's just not very creative and the characters are pretty lacking. The narrator is seriously getting on my nerves by now, too! Most of his voices are very bad!

Nice. Great narration and voice kept me awake.

Storyline was nice and clean. Good plot twists. Should show which books are in what order. I want to hear more.
