The King of Limeros’s son, Magnus, must plan each footstep with shrewd, sharp guile if he is to earn his powerful father’s trust, while his sister, Lucia, discovers a terrifying secret about her heritage that will change everything.
Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Do NOT compare this with Game of Thrones, please stop

Hard to out down, this book contains all the winning elements of a good plot: a strong-willed female character, the dying of magic, a misunderstood prince, and the list goes on. Thing is, considering it was published in 2012, I can't help but feel it's a copy of a copy. It feels like déjà vu, and should not be compared to Game of Thrones, as it comes nothing close to it. All in all, it's quite entertaining to read, and resembles any good YA lit that came out in the past years.
