***I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader's copy of this book.****

K.L. Bone has the power to nearly kill me with each and every SINGLE one of her books. They literally have my clutching my heart every time I finish one. I'm actually not entirely convinced I will make it through this series....

That sentiment being said, it's rare that when this happens in a book, that I actually want to continue the series....or even continue reading books by this author, but I know, I will always come back fo

After being blown away by the first two books in the Rise of the Temple Gods series, I couldn’t help wondering how KL Bone was going to top the previous two books. I shouldn’t have been surprised she did that and more. If you haven’t read the first two books, Heir to Kale and Heir to Koloso, you need to read those two books first.
As the feud between the two princesses, Mariana and Ameria, continued, I found myself torn. I didn’t know whom I wanted to be queen; both sisters had admirable qualitie

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.

Never a disappointing moment

Book 3 in the Rise of the Temple Gods stood true to the prior 2. Making putting the book down impossible. The desire, angst, and looming battle between the sisters keeps one on the edge of their seat. I have no idea where this story will go and KL has an amazing talent in her writing to pull in the past lives of the characters and stories of the past into the present. I picture her writing with a stack of note books surrounding her because its the only way I imagine

Loved

I love how this story is processing!! It is very intense! It seems as if the wraiths are playing a wicked game with the twins to turn them against one another. This prophesy is seeming to repeat its self over and over again. I hope they are able to find a way around it or come to see what is happening. I feel bad for Kyle a he is caught in the middle of it all. I can see he cares deeply for both princesses, I hope to find what happens in the next book!!

This is the third book in this series and they must be read in order. Some of the pieces are coming together. Things are becoming clearer. There is more heart ache in this book between Kyle and the Mariana. The sisters are at odds as well. Will the prophecy come true again or will Kyle find a way to save both girls? The wraiths are giving clues and helping out the girls however somethings aren't figured out till it could be too late. As I was reading the first two books I felt confused for quite ...more

**This book was provided by the author to Nerd Girl in exchange for an honest review**

OMG!! This is by far the best one yet!! K.L. Bone NEVER disappoints! Between the roller coaster ride she delivers and the descriptive scenes she portrays. This author always has you on the edge of your seat and yearning for more!

In this installment we continue with the twin princesses. One on the thrown and finding it difficult to navigate and one searching the deathly shadows of their family history in search
