In another series that promises to be as entertaining as the previous ones, A THRONE OF SISTERS presents us with the tale of two sisters (Sophia and Kate), orphans, fighting to survive in a cruel and demanding world of an orphanage. An instant success. I can hardly wait to put my hands on the second and third books!”

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 mean,

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

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 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

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

Oh boy so where to start, the writer has a almost child like understanding of writing her grammar is like reading an essay by a 6 year old. Her books are short so one good thing but the world building and people in her books are poor over all nothing likeable about any of it. I don't get why books by her get so many good reviews at all. I would keep away from this book and read something good or remotely readable

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.

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.

I have given this a 4 star as i can see how appealin

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.

Don't get me wrong. The premise sounded interesting and I was intrigued for a whole two pages until Sophia described one of the reasons she was beaten by the nuns at the evi

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

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

Where do I begin?
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

DNFed at Page 12.

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 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.

Hmm. Zeggen dat dit slecht is, zou wat hard zijn. Het is aangenaam om te lezen, perfect om de gedachten te verzetten. Maar niet meer dan dat.

This was an enjoyable read, despite its somewhat rushed feel, so that the pace of events was unrealistic.

I did like the idea of the sisters' talents and the good v evil concept. The writing style was easy to read and the world-building good.

It's a harsh world and we are left with two cliff-hangers.

I did like it, though.

Sophia and Kate grow up in a repressive and abusive orphanage. Facing yet another beating, they run away to seek their fortunes. They have no money, no friends, and basically no usable skills except one: they can hear what others are thinking. Sophia uses this power to make her way into the royal court, even gaining the favor of the prince. And Kate uses it to help her in her quest to become a warrior who could protect them both against danger.

I liked this well enough, but it was too short--it

Only Romeo and Juliet were amazing enough to fall in love in a moment. Both characters fall in love with the first male they encounter and each of these relationships progresses unrealistically and the plot moves unfeasibly fast through events. Each girl, even though one is supposed to be some hard vengeful little rebel, end up swooning in a modern annoying pathetic teenage girl way over the boys in this book. Extremely basic character development, teenage cliche romance and a conclusion that en ...more

I don't really know where to go with this story. So the older sister has the charmed life where everything works out for her, and the younger gets all the bad luck? How in the world do you magically fit in with noble society and get a prince to fall in love with you just like that, even if you have mental powers to read thoughts? If it worked out so easily for Sophia, why didn't it work out for Kate? Was it an age thing, like Kate didn't have the experience with her powers to get away with thing ...more

Sisters in Suffering

Two sisters, Sophie and Kate, are prisoners in an orphanage where they are trained prior to being sold. They escape and, after splitting up, begin their separate journeys to the future. This was an exciting story which ends at a point that screams for you to follow their stories in the next book.
