Publisher's Summary

The sensational high fantasy series that is Game of Thrones for teens

Auranos has been conquered and the three kingdoms - Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia - are now unwillingly united as one country called Mytica. But alluring, dangerous magic still beckons, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the world....

CLEO is now a prisoner in her own palace, forced to be an ambassador for Mytica as the evil King Gaius lies to her people. MAGNUS stands to eventually inherit the new kingdom but is still obsessed with his feelings for his adopted sister, Lucia. LUCIA is haunted by the deadly outcome of her breathtaking display of magic that allowed her father to capture the kingdoms. JONAS watches at the palace gates, a troop of rebels behind him, waiting for him to tell them how he plans to overtake King Gaius.

When Gaius announces that a road is to be built into the Forbidden Mountains, formally linking all of Mytica together, he sets off a chain of cataclysmic events that will forever change the face of this land.

Critic Reviews

"From an opening dripping with blood, magic, and betrayal through complex interweaving plots detailing treachery, deceit, and forbidden love, this novel...will immediately engage readers and keep them intrigued." ( Booklist)
"[It] will gut you emotionally...make you ache, cry, and beg for the sequel as you turn the last page. I absolutely loved it." (Julie Kagawa, New York Times best-selling author of The Iron Queen)

Entertaining

I was pleasantly surprised after the first book so it's nice to see that this one still retains its charm I'm glad I picked this up looking forward to more

Excellent Story!

Any additional comments?

Rebel Kingdom is a continuation of a story. Throughout the twists and turns the plot thickens and is unpredictable. (YAY!!) I love the dynamics of the characters and how the author presents their thought process. I've become emotionally attached to several and I cannot wait to start book 3.

Can't wait for the next book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Rebel Spring to be better than the print version?

This production of the audio edition is LOADS better than the first audio production of Falling Kingdoms. I thought that I wasn't going to buy the audio edition of Rebel Springs because I wasn't impressed with the audio of Falling Kingdoms but the narrator did SUCH a better job on this tape! You can't hear his sharp intakes of breath as predominantly as well as, his hurried rush of words when reading character lines. In this production he speaks smoother, not so staccato. I very, VERY much like this series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rebel Spring?

The wedding scene!!!!

What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

I liked that he improved his performance from Falling Kingdoms to Rebel Springs. This audio is very good.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No tears but I'm not a crier. The end made me VERY much excited for the next book. We really haven't had an in-depth look yet to Lucia and I think Prince Magnus still has a lot of growth coming. Also Cleonia had a large undertaking stirring and I think the best is yet to come!

Any additional comments?

Lord Aron is a perfect addition to the cast. He's horribly annoying but brings a good dynamic to the circle of nobles. Same with Nic! He surprised me at the end, holy moly!CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE!

once again perfect

I am not much of a reader, but this story line has me so wrapped up in it that I feel as tho I am there with the characters. I can not wait to start the next book. And hopefully these turn into a movie or the next game of thrones.

My newest series to read.

Where does Rebel Spring rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is in the top five series I have read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rebel Spring?

The princesses guard dying trying to save her.

What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

His ability to change his voice to each character and sustain them is absolutely amazing. Nobody in all the audio books I have read can top Fred. He deserves an award if he hasn't already received one.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I prefer my books in intervals.

Soooo drawn out

I get that authors want plot twists and crazy curve balls, but this author is making us lose our emotional bonds with the characters.

(Spoiler!!)
How many guys Cleo has liked so far: Theo, Jonas, and now the prince.

I could go through a list. It's like 5 different fickle romances stacked on top of each other. It makes me roll my eyes.

Damn near everyone in this book is retarded

There are 3 kingdoms in this world, where apparently they're so small you can march an entire through it in 1 week (just making fun of the author's sense of distance).
One kingdom is filthy rich with a decent king, just a tad bit retarded.
The other Kingdom that makes ONLY wine is poor, and the people are starving. The king taxs his people 75% of their income, yet the people still worship him as a god. Then blame all their problems on the Rich kingdom. needless to say, every single person in this poor kingdom MUST be retarded.
Then theres the kingdom thats stuck in winter almost all year round is hell bent on taking over everything, and uses the retarded kingdom to help them.
Read the book, and you'll see very few average minded people. Better yet just avoid this book, there are many fiction books out there that can entertain you. I do have other reasons why this book is just bad, there are simply too many to put it in this review.

Nara to whisper to yell is difficult

It's a pretty enthralling storyline, but in a car on a road trip, the narrator's constant shift from whisper to yelling makes it very hard to listen to. I spent more time adjusting the volume to appease my family than paying attention to the story
