Being a huge Game of Thrones fan, I’ve always been excited about the Falling Kingdoms series, which in my mind, is like a teen-safe version of Game of Thrones. But I have to say, after reading this book, I don’t think I’ll be able to wait for the next book. The story was amazing. The character development was amazing. The romance was amazing. And the unpredictability was possibly the best part.
Frozen Tides holds your interest for its entire duration, constantly keeping you on your toes due to all of the twists and turns. Many of the twists are a result of the characters, who constantly realigning sides. (I won’t spoil, but be prepared for surprises).
Romance was also a prevalent part of the novel. One of the major characteristics of Rhodes’s writings that I love is definitely the way that she does her romance. It is never overdone, but is much more interesting and subtle.
Finally, I really felt the “teen version of Game of Thrones.” Anyone can die, anyone can come back to life. Constant political intrigue. Many character points-of-view. It was all there, but in a much less complicated (and violent) package.
All in all, I would highly recommend this series, and I hope that you find it as enjoyable as I did!
