#56: The Fallen Prince - Shea Berkley

There is a magical realm that exists alongside the human realm, but it wasn’t always so. The firsts are beings who were created to nurture the land. The world was split into two realms, and th


e firsts were allowed to redeem themselves. Sadly, the majority continued with their self-indulgent behavior to the point where one of their own, a king, became so obsessed with power, he was secretly banished by the court in hopes his absence would calm the masses. But a spark of madness was ignited and not even the lost king's absence could curtail what he set in motion.

My review of book 1, The Marked Son


Review:
I'm sitting on a HUGE fence with this book. That bothers me slightly, as I did love the first book no questions.
There were so many parts that were great. I love fantasy, so having dragons, dwarves and magic in the story always captures my attention. I also loved some of the characters, and not necessarily the main ones. Take Lucinda, for example. Her love and commitment to Leo is so honorable and endearing. When others doubt it, you can't help but adore her.
But there were times I felt like there was just too much going on all at once. I often wondered, "how did we get here?"
So for everything I liked, I can match with something I didn't care for. This is definitely one of those stories some will love and others will not.


3/5

Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both.
