A struggle for power between gods, rebels, and royals, murder, betrayal, and magic – this is the world of Morgan Rhodes’ “Falling Kingdoms” series. Frozen Tides, the fourth installment in the series, throws readers right back into the midst of the grief and betrayal Gathering Darkness ended on, and Rhodes does not pull back.
Like its companion books, Frozen Tides is a substantial book, and there is plenty of gore and some harsh language, and so it’s not for squeamish or reluctant readers. However, the quality writing makes this book perfect for avid fantasy readers looking for plenty of action, suspense, and romance.
I recommend reading the series from the beginning in order to get the full effect of the events that take place in Frozen Tides. Each book in this series has been better than the last, and, as the cast of characters dwindles and the powerful Kindred are gathered, it’s hard not to white-knuckle the pages as you read.
