THE FALLEN PRINCE BLOG TOUR

Riven has fought for a hard-won peace in her world, and has come to shaky terms with who and what she is—a human with cyborg DNA. Now that the rightful ruler of Neospes has been reinstated, Riven is on the hunt for her father in the Otherworld to bring him to justice for his crimes against her people.

But when she receives an unwelcome visit from two former allies, she knows that trouble is brewing once again in Neospes. The army has been decimated and there are precious few left to fight this mysterious new threat.
To muster a first line of defense, her people need help from the one person Riven loathes most—her father. But what he wants in return is her complete surrender.

And now Riven must choose: save Neospes or save herself.

review

The Fallen Prince starts off right where The Almost Girl ends. And Amalie moves this story at the perfect pace.

There’s a lot going on but not once do you feel lost or get confused. Riven is trying to locate her father who everted to the “Otherworld” (Earth) all the while she is trying to stay ahead of The Faction and Guardians. However, when she finds out that their King is in the Otherworld with her, she has no other option but to stop looking for her father and seeing what Caden needs. And it’s not what she wants to hear.

Riven and her new team find themselves on an unknown journey. There are pushed to their limits with fighting against unknown species as well as twists and turns at almost every corner. There is nothing that can prepare them for what comes straight to them.

Amalie does a wonderful job of creating these new worlds that are outside Earth’s realm. You can so easily picture what these characters are seeing and feel the exact wonderment they do. Amalie’s writing will you put you right in the heart of everything and have you never wanting to leave.

The characters Amalie creates are so unique and amazing. Some of them are not all human and it’s just fascinating to see each of them interact together. I felt like I was watching a very entertaining and captivating Sci-Fi movie. The worlds, the characters – everything just comes to life on the pages and flows perfectly.

Riven is a brave, intelligent and heartfelt character. Caden has a heart of gold and will stop at nothing to save his people. Cale is a cruel and heartless asshole but he’s very savvy and a mastermind at surviving. Danton is selfish and only looks out for himself but he’s also a very highly intelligent man who lets his power overrule his feelings.

There are so many characters in this book – I could go on and on about them. They are all unique in their own ways and help make this story extremely enthralling and enrapturing.

If you can’t tell, I absolutely loved this book and this whole series. I was bewitched from beginning to end. Amazing job Amalie!

The Fallen Prince Excerpt:

The flare of blue fire is blinding. Then again, it’s gone so quickly that even if you were staring right at me, you’d blink and it’d vanish. The emissions from the process of eversion—shifting between universes—are unavoidable. However, I try to be careful, everting in concealed areas away from people, and away from the eyes of the Faction and the Guardians. They’re always watching for those who break the law—those who don’t
remain where they belong.

Me, more so than ever.

I belong in Neospes, a domed city in a parallel dimension to the Otherworld. But I’m here in pursuit of a man who everted over a year ago. A man who nearly destroyed my world in his quest for power. A man so consumed with retaliation that to let him loose in either world would be a colossal mistake.

And so I hunt him. I’ve been hunting him—across thirty states and always a step or two behind. He’s clever, brilliant, and a master strategist.

After all, he’s my father. And he’s my creator.

I may look like an ordinary girl, but I’m far from one. It’s something I’m still coming to terms with, ever since I learned the truth. I am a product of genetic experimentation and advanced robotics. I am the girl with nanoplasm for blood—the perfect combination of human and machine, an aberration of nature—and yet, its greatest creation. I am the only one of my kind.

My name is Riven.

And I am a killer.
