Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Two orphans. Two sisters.
One wants to be a noble.
One to be a huntress. A fighter.
After fleeing from their abusive orphanage, the two sisters separate from each other, to each reach their goal.
First of: nearly all the scenes seemed so... simple and predictable.
And sometimes stupid.
First of all the scene at the beginning. There were boys hurting a girl and Sophia stops them and of course the boys see a pretty girl (Sophia, who was punished by the nuns for being to beautiful - I me

I buddy read this with Nana and Aless.

Oh boy. I thought my expectations were low, but I guess this managed to get even lower than I thought. I know Morgan Rice’s writing is bad. All of her books that I’ve read so far have felt like a very rough first draft of a highly abridged decent story. I don’t read Morgan Rice because I think she’s a good writer. She’s my go-to trash queen. But I guess, in some way, since I enjoyed Rogue, Prisoner, Princess earlier this month, I had subconsciously raised my

I feel like this book had a look of potential but was executed poorly. The entire book takes place over 2 days and the majority of the book felt like a prologue. Once the pace finally began to pick up and the plot become interesting the book came to an abrupt end. Additionally I found the world was underdeveloped and the two main characters Sofia and Kate were one dimensional and uninteresting.

Everything about this is random. Why do they decide to run away now, if the orphanage was so horrible? Why haven't they done anything "horrible" before for which they would be killed, if it is that easy? Especially considering their powers which would have made running away even easier... I don't think any of this will explained

Okay but first, oh my god. I don't know how, but I knew there was going to be some sort of ending that I really really would not like. (Cliffhangers are not fun when you have no way to get your hands on book two!)

I'm going to try and write out some form of coherent thought so we're going to see how this goes.

Our protagonists, Sophia (17) and Kate (15) are sisters with a telepathic talent. The two escape on Sophia's birthday and separate as they run, each with their own goals in mind on how to su

Two sisters, running from the horror of their lives in a cruel orphanage will separate as each seeks out their own version of freedom and happiness. Bound by a telepathic bond, Sophia and Kate have never truly been alone until they each follow the path they feel is destined for them.

A THRONE FOR SISTERS by Morgan Rice is a rapid-fire fantasy presented with all of the turmoil these teens are living as we are swept from Sophia’s quest to marry a rich noble of the royal court to Kate’s desire to li

"It was time to risk it all"

No, now is definitely not the time to be risking it all. 🤦

Lol, this book is unoriginality in it's purest form. Two sisters, Sophia (aka Sansa) and Kate (aka Ayra) escape from their abusive orphanage and decide to separate (literally the dumbest idea in the history of decisions) to pursue what the other wants in life. Sansa *cough* (sorry) Sophia wants a life amongst nobles, while Kate wants to learn how to fight and live off the land.

Wow. This book was a roller coaster from start to finish. The entire story takes place over the span of 2 days, which is both good and bad.

Sophia and Kate are orphans trying to escape the horrors of the orphanage and their future of indentured servitude. Sophia has grand plans of nobility while Kate wants to be a fighter and a bandit.

The tale is fast paced, but leaves many questions behind. Which I guess is a good reason to buy the second book in the series, in hope of more answers.

Overall, I

I was really excited for this book - the plot sounded really interesting - but it really didn't work for me. I did not hate it, but none of the characters clicked with me and the story wasn't what I really wanted
It's a small book, so if the plot interest you, maybe check it out for yourself

Free on Google Play - through BookBub - if anyone is interested. They also have the sequel for free, but for obvious reasons, I won't be continuing it

This is the start of another wonderful series by Morgan Rice. The cover is absolutely gorgeous! The characters are well written and relatable in this gritty, romantic, and adventurous epic fantasy novel. The world building was great and I found myself so attached to these sisters stories and wanting to see where they will go in the next book!

Sophia and Kate are sisters and orphans growing up in a harsh world with big dreams. One wants to be royal and the other a hunter warrior. They also both ha

This was....a book. For me, I felt as though the story progression didn't make sense. The girls are running from a terrible life, but one so happens to get a prince to fall in love with her as soon as she meets him and the other is almost immediately taken on as an apprentice to a blacksmith? Everything was just too convenient.
I also don't see how this title fits the story. There is

I did not finish. I was really wanting to like this book but it’s hard to like two separate “heroines” who lie and steal and (for one of them) sleep her way into “love”. It would have been so much better if the sisters left town and tried to make it on.their.own. Lies, deception and love don’t mix. Not my idea of good book.

Feels like bullet points made into a story. Very fast paced in definitely not a good way. The romancce was also cringe-worthy... But I think I'll still read/listen to the next book of the series 'cause I like Kate. And there really is a nice potential to the plot.

I wanted to like this book. Really I did. The premise was interesting and the idea of two sisters with psychic abilities sounded like a fresh change from the usual fantasy protagonist. I was hoping their talent would let them work in tandem together to overcome the obstacles of their hard young lives, but, alas, no. They spend the vast majority of the book apart, without even their mind reading able to keep a link between them.
The characters were very one dimensional and it truly felt like the a

I dislike writing negative reviews, but alas, I must be honest. Let’s start with something positive, though.
The ideas behind this book were good. Two sisters run away from an orphanage where they were being mistreated, then decide to split up so they can each seek fortune using their own talents. Through deception, Sophia walks the road of nobility, whereas Kate desires to become a soldier. However, these ideas among others, were not executed well. The entire story happens ove

I really tried to power through but the beginning is already so bad...I just couldn't stand the Special Snowflakes, the 'obviously different a.k.a. polar opposites' sisters where the main one is clearly envious of the other for whatever blah reasons, juvenile writing and terrible dialogue.

A brilliant book, a bit like a younger girls version of game of thrones focusing only on Sansa and Aria type of characters lol..... although the sisters in this Sophia and Kate have a very strong bond mind readingly so.
There is magic but its underlying the main story focuses on two sisters and trying to follow their dreams Sophia to be a princess and Kate to fight Even the world has a Kings landing type edge to it and it is very dark in places.

Have you ever seen a book idea that sounded cool when described to you, but when you read it, it seems like a twelve-year-old who just discovered HBO wanted to make their own edgy story wrote it? Well, look no further than A Throne For Sisters! I couldn't figure out a better descriptive word for this novel aside from stupid.

I think this book could have been good if there had been more depth. Two orphaned sisters have different dreams. One wants a plush royal lifestyle while the other wants to fight in a war. After escaping the orphanage they go their separate ways. To complicate matters, they can both read minds.

Sophia, the eldest, uses her mind reading abilities to slip into the court of nobles and woo one of them. While Kate ends up becoming a blacksmith's apprentice. You can probably guess that things don't go w

I should probably start this by warning everyone of my only child status, which causes me to have a disconnect with sibling relationships in books sometimes. I don’t really know what’s it’s like to be or have a sibling and I think I can judge characters too harshly because of this. That being said, I thought Sophia in this book was WACK.

Right off the bat I could tell this world was well thought out. I was intrigued by it, but dang, we’r

I started this book a while ago and at first I was really intrigued and I liked it. Especially Sophia's perspective I found very entertaining. I love everything that involves royalty and forbidden love, however, here we have a strong case of install be which I'm not really fond of.

As for Kate; I never really got warm with her. I cannot identify with her at all which is probably because she is so very different from me. I didn't really like her chapters and more than once I though

I was very surprised to see this book for free to be honest. But then again I shouldn't be; nowadays more and more writers offer their books for free, especially the first instalment in a series. The lure of a free book in a sea of similar and, let's face it, expensive books, is too much to pass up. In the end, the author wins readers who might more easily pick up this new series and continue through it by buying the next books. And some good ratings hopefully.

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of A Throne for Sisters!

I loved this way more than I expected to. I guess I'd describe it as Three Dark Crowns meets Heartless meets The Selection. It was super captivating, there was a lot of suspense, and the supernatural elements were really well written. It was fast-paced, which is always a bonus, but I think it was perhaps a little too fast paced in certain areas. That being said, it was only 186 pages, so for a short story I guess that's

A Throne for Sisters took me by surprise by
how much I liked the story and the sisters.
Book 2 in the series is a must for me.
I have to know what is going to happen the girls next.
Narrator Wayne Farrell was an interesting choice.
His female voices were a little lacking.
Cleanish. Small amount of Foul Language.

As was expected.. another amazing book by Morgan Rice! Everything went a little quick, making me feel like I was in a rollercoaster, but the story was well built and very enjoyable.
