QUESTion: What is the credo of Limeros? [Email the answer, found somewhere below, to [email protected] for the chance to win one of five hardcover copies of Falling Kingdoms!]
From Morgan: There are three different kingdoms featured in Falling Kingdoms, which make up the land of Mytica, and each have a very different view of religion.
In the north, Limeros, a kingdom that has in recent years become colder and colder, to the point that it’s covered in ice for all but a few precious warm summer weeks, the citizens worship Valoria, goddess of earth and water. Limerians take their religion very seriously and hold true to the credo of “strength, faith, and wisdom,” words that are stitched onto tapestries and found on all royal documents. Limerians live a modest lifestyle, rejecting luxuries and frivolities. A tight hold on religion does come in handy when dealing with a strict and pitiless king, who rarely gives second chances to those who defy his many laws and restrictions.
In Paelsia, a land that seems cursed to waste away inch by inch, leaving poverty and devastation behind, the citizens worship no mythical goddess or god. Instead, they put all their faith in their leader, Chief Basilius, a self-proclaimed sorcerer, in hopes that he will lead them through this difficult time and into a more prosperous future.
In the southern land of Auranos, a golden kingdom that has seen no significant hardships and is prosperous and lush from coast to coast, religion has been cast aside by many in favor of a more hedonistic lifestyle. If Auranians worship anyone, it is Cleiona, goddess of fire and air, who was the Limerian’s goddess Valoria’s fiercest rival, leading to much ill will between the two kingdoms, even now.

About Falling Kingdoms:
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?
