An epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.

MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he's no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption.

LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise. 

JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey.

AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she'll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge.

And what kind of darkness will descend--and who will be safe--after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?

Now on to the interview!!

Morgan Rhodes Interview Two Chicks Interview 12/16/2016

Hi Morgan! First, I want to say welcome back to Two Chicks on Books! Thanks for stopping by to answer my questions! I love The Falling Kingdoms Series and CRYSTAL STORM was freaking awesome!

Thank you so much! Glad to be here!!

So for can you give us a quick recap of what has happened in the series?

A lot has happened, so a quick recap would be nearly impossible, especially if we want to avoid spoilers. However, I can say that there has been a battle for control over a kingdom named Mytica, which contains a legendary quartet of crystal orbs filled with elemental magic; there have been shaky alliances made between mortal enemies, unexpected love found, and great losses, as my main four characters, consisting of royals and rebelsMagnus, Lucia, Cleo & Jonasnavigate this rocky and treacherous terrain.

Can you tell us a little bit of what we can expect in CRYSTAL STORM?

Things are coming to a climax in the second to last book of the series, that’s for sure! Readers can expect unexpected twists, big romance, big battles, more magic, unusual team-ups, and a killer cliffhanger.

What is your favorite passage/scene from CRYSTAL STORM?

Not to sound evil, but I did enjoy writing the last cliffhanger chapter. Sorry readers! ;)

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

Magnus is my favorite and has been since book one since he’s just so much fun to write since, even though I do write from an outline, he always surprises me with what he says and how he looks at the world. I don’t have a least favorite, but I will say that Lucia has been a challenging character since she is a girl who is (slowly) finding her footing and figuring out who she is and making tons of mistakes along the way. As we all do in our teen years!

Who is your ultimate Book Boyfriend?

I’d have to say this is a tie between Adrian Ivashkov and (yes, I’ll admit it) Edward Cullen.

What inspired you to write YA?

I’ve always been drawn to the genre. When I was a teen, that was when I read the most voraciouslyall sorts of genres. When I hit a reading slump as an adult, I found the YA genre and it reminded me of how much fun it is to read. This was when the YA section in bookstores consisted of about one shelf located at the far back of the store and most of the books were no more than 200 pages long. I wrote adult novels for a while under another name, but naturally gravitated back to YA and am loving it.

Lightening Round Questions

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

Right now I’m rereading all five Falling Kingdoms novels so I can finish writing book six. Sometimes I forget the little details, so I always skim through the previous books. Next up on my TBR, I’m dying to finally get a chance to read Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows duology.

What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?

The sorting hat at Pottermore.com was wise and placed me with my good friends at Slytherin. ;)
