Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
I forget where I got the recommendation for this book from but when I saw the physical book my reaction was ‘Oh no, that looks like a hardcore fantasy book, I’m not going to like that’. I almost didn’t even read it but I am very glad that I did.

This book is set in kind of your typical kings and townspeople sort of world where there are rich people who live in the city and all the villagers who do their own thing and then there are randomly magical people and evil creatures. Continue reading “(26) Uprooted // Bookish Blurb”
