Reviewed By: Jessica P. 
Publisher: Razorbill
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: High Fantasy 
About the Book:

In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.

As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed... and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.

The only outcome that's certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

It's the eve of war.... Choose your side.


Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.

Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people's revolution centuries in the making.

Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword....

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: When I started this one I almost DNFed it but after talking with a few people who have read it told me to keep at it and I am so glad that I did. 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes if you love epic fantasy this is the one for you! 

Notes and Opinions: This one starts off really well and with a horrible situation. It was a little confusing when I first started this book is very involved with the world and the characters.  We have multiple things going on in this story and I loved every bit of it. This world is so vast and this story is as well.  I loved all the characters once I really got into it.  I will say this is one book you need to take your time with so you get a good grasp on who is who and what kingdom you are in.  But once you really get into the story you won't be able to put it down. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Very complex world
