| Synopsis |
In A THRONE FOR SISTERS (Book one), Sophia, 17, and her younger sister Kate, 15, are desperate to leave their horrific orphanage. Orphans, unwanted and unloved, they nonetheless dream of coming of age elsewhere, of finding a better life, even if that means living on the streets of the brutal city of Ashton.
Sophia and Kate, also best friends, have each other’s backs—and yet they want different things from life. Sophia, a romantic, more elegant, dreams of entering the court and finding a noble to fall in love with. Kate, a fighter, dreams of mastering the sword, of battling dragons, and becoming a warrior. They are both united, though, by their secret, paranormal power to read other’s minds, their only saving grace in a world that seems bent to destroy them.
As they each embark on a quest and adventure in their own ways, they struggle to survive. Faced with choices neither can imagine, their choices may propel them to the highest power—or plunge them to the lowest depths.
A THRONE FOR SISTERS is the first book in a dazzling new fantasy series rife with love, heartbreak, tragedy, action, magic, sorcery, fate and heart-pounding suspense. A page-turner, it is filled with characters that will make you fall in love, and a world you will never forget.
My idea of a perfect vacation day is sitting by a body of water (pool, lake, river or ocean) reading a novel that expects nothing from you other than to be transported in time and place for a while. A Throne for Sisters by Morgan Rice does just that. The first of a seven-part young adult fantasy series, Throne transports the reader to the grimy streets of Ashton where sisters Sophia and Kate go in separate directions after escaping their lots in life in order to search for their dreams. Sophia finds her way to her fairytale castle to meet the prince, while Kate seeks adventure around each corner.
Ms Rice develops rich characters (both good and evil) who captivate each page. Her vivid descriptions help the reader to be immersed in the book. I will admit that I am not a fan of series books, especially ones that have cliffhangers as this one did. Perhaps my attention span is just too short to commit for that long. For fans of series novels, however, A Throne for Sisters is likely to keep you wanting more. For me, it was the perfect beginning to my summer readcation!
