Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes
In GATHERING DARKNESS, book three of the New York Times bestselling Falling Kingdoms series, the stakes have never been higher as three teams push forward on a race to find the Kindred, the four elemental crystals possessing ancient all-powerful magic, first:
TEAM WATCHER relies on King Gaius’s cruelty and Lucia’s powers to unlock the Kindred.
TEAM CLEO slays with sweetness and the secret that they hold the key to controlling Lucia’s overwhelming magic.
TEAM KRAESHIA will stop at nothing—including deceit and betrayal—to seize the Kindred and claim Mytica as their own.
Whoever wins will control the fate of Mytica—but fate can be fickle when magic is involved…(from GoodReads)
I really enjoy this series - it's similar to Game of Thrones but not quite as ambitious of a read. Gathering Darkness will be released December 9, 2014.
