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.

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

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

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.

Literally this book was a

Bueno no sé si soy la única que piensa que cuando un audiolibro o algún ebook es gratis hay que aprovechar y leerlo. Y es así como encontré el libro un Trono para las hermanas, leí las reseñas y pues la mayoría eran muy buenas y tenían muy buenas calificaciones, por lo tanto mis expectativas iban creciendo.

Me gusto y no me gusto.
Primero les digo lo que me gusto.
Tenemos este misterio que envuelve a las dos hermanas un secreto sobre su pasado y sus padres que no sabes si será algo malo o bueno dependiendo de lo que pasará en la segunda entregas.
El toque de fantasía en cuanto al poder mental de comunicación entre las hermanas me llamo mucho la atención y ya quiero saber más sobre si son brujas o algo así.
En Sofía tenemos a una chica dulce y tierna y en Catalina una chica rebelde que puede llegar a p

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

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 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

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. ...more

★☆☆☆☆ DID NOT FINISH ~ Why can't I give this book a 0-star review?

I am happy I did not waste money on this book and got it only because the e-book version was free on the FNAC website. This was really bad and I can't help but think I understand why this book was free.
The writing is really bad (we are at a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One and Two level here). I read 64 pages of this book and that was way too much because I could not find even one single thing I liked: the writing w

Primero que nada conseguí este libro gratis en kindle, y me voy a quejar de que he leído otros libros gratis que estan mejor editados, este tiene un montón de errores, en algunos cápitulos hasta le cambiaban el nombre a los personajes, y que decir de la escritura, creo que no me ha gustado.
Lo único interesante fue el final de ambos personajes. Pero aunque el libro sea muy cortito creo que pudo haber desarrollado mejor a sus protas, porque sus motivaciones no tienen mucho sentido, sobre todo los

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

Una historia sobre dos hermanas totalmente diferentes que hace que la historia tenga cierto balance.
Es fácil y rápida de leer y la forma en la que lo narra me gustó mucho, el toque de fantasia que tiene es bueno aunque sea un libro un poco introductorio a la historia.
Lo que no me gustó fue que hay amor de la nada y no se hace muy creíble y la historia bien podría estar perfecta sin esa parte, también que se desarrolla en unos días cuando lo sientes como si fuera mucho más tiempo.

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.
