Falling Kingdoms QUEST blog tour!

FacebookMorgan Rhodes on TwitterWebsite 
In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined:

Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.

Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword...

The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

QUESTion: What material is the Auranian castle built from?

Excerpt: “Despite being named for a goddess, Cleo wasn’t invested in religion, nor was she alone in that. Many in the kingdom had drifted away from what was previously considered an important part of Auranian life. Years ago, the king had relaxed the rule that there be a day dedicated to prayer. All days were equal here, and his subjects could use their time however they pleased.” – Chapter 9, FALLING KINGDOMS

From Morgan: The name “Auranos” is inspired by the Latin word for gold (aureus). Auranos is the rich and prosperous southern kingdom in the land of Mytica. The castle itself is in the center of the walled palace city known as the “City of Gold.” The Auranian castle is built with stone that glitters like precious metal under the sun. Auranians wears their privilege on their sleeve for all to see – but it’s more from ignorance of how they’re being perceived by those less fortunate than a true need to show off.

Auranos boasts plenty of wildlife and agriculture that their poorer neighbors in Paelsia envy and try to poach by crossing through the dangerous Wildlands forest that separates the two kingdoms. Your average Auranian might not be a super rich noble, but he or she certainly isn’t going hungry.

At one time, Auranians worshiped Cleiona, goddess of fire and air—in fact, their current princess is named after this powerful goddess. But laziness, hedonism, and a lack of religious direction from their current king has made religion a much smaller part of their lives than it was in the past.

The citizens of Auranos’s days are filled with sunshine and happiness and prosperity, and rarely do they suffer—at least, that’s how it’s been for a millennium…
