“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. That is your destiny, Princess of Kale, Princess of Koloso, heir to both.” – Prophecy of the Kalian Twins

Two heirs. One throne. Return to the land of Kale for the third installment in the Rise of the Temple Gods series and follow twin princesses Mariana and Ameria as their struggle for the crown divides not only their hearts, but the kingdom they strive to rule.

Named by her grandfather as the future Lady of Serenitas, Princess Ameria distinguishes herself as a ruler while, in secret, delving further into her family’s shadowed past. What is the meaning behind the wraith’s prophecy and how does it connect to the identity of her father’s killer?

Seated on the throne as acting queen, Mariana struggles to navigate royal court politics while grappling with the possibility the man she considered a second father, Master Leo, may not have been the hero she once believed. To discover the truth, Mariana sends her trusted captain and love, Kyle, to meet with her sister, Princess Ameria.

Kyle is not without secrets of his own. Each night he endures the same dream. Two men, trapped in eternal, mortal combat. And behind their clash of blades, a voice growling in the darkness: Beware the twins of Kale.

***Valerie – #NerdGirlVal’s Review***
Wow! And Wow! This one is full of surprises! K. L. Bone has you on the edge of your seat as one of the twins falls for a silver defendant. The other twin searches of their grandfather for answers. I found myself all over the board with my emotions. This was an exciting, heart wrenching storyline.
The silver defendant himself searched out the truth behind Kale and Koloso. You are finally reviled the truth behind the legend. Now this is a jaw dropping tale of two brothers and the crown and death. You won’t believe what happens! You will find yourself on the edge of your seat holding your breath. The love of two brothers turned to betrayal and death. This can only result in a very numb non-feeling king.
Then you have the story behind the twin’s parents. Another set of brothers with love, betrayal and death. The consequences from this arranged marriage is banishment and a happy father. Do you follow your heart or do you live a loveless marriage?
But the last few chapters of this book, had my heart breaking into a million pieces for one of the twins and the silver defendant. The choices they are forced to make, the love that is forbidden and the cold heart of the other twin stepping in between the two. I was sobbing, my heart was breaking so bad.
To me a really good book, has to have a storyline that takes all your emotions to their highest levels and I feel this one did just that for me. So on to the next book and finding out what happens. I can’t wait!
