Book Trailer Thursday #41 - Reached & Falling Kingdoms

Book Trailer Thursday is a feature inspired by Once Upon a TwilightWe are hoping to promote not only new books that are out or are soon to be out on the shelves, but to also promote the creation of book trailers themselves! Make sure to post a comment below and let us know what you've found out there this week!

This week’s trailers:

Reached 
(Matched Trilogy, Book 3)
Author: Ally Condie
Release Date: November 13, 2012
Published by: Dutton Children's Books

After leaving Society and and desperately searching for the Rising--and each other--Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.
In this gripping conclusion, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without. (Summary from Goodreads)

I read the first book in this series just as it came out and have waited to read the rest until the whole series is out. I love these covers, they are just perfection! I love that they thought it all through from the beginning! This video is short, but also follows the imaged they've had all along which I appreciate immensely! I do have to say that I'm surprised the actress they chose looks so much older than the character is in the books...odd. What do you think?

Falling Kingdoms 
(Falling Kingdoms, Book 1)

Author: Morgan Rhodes & Michelle Rowen 
Release Date: December 11, 2012
Published by: Razorbill

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? (Summary from Goodreads)

I'm ready for a battle! Nice teaser of a trailer! I immediately went and read the synopsis which made me want to read this even more.  3 kingdoms, 4 main characters, and a battle to come for power and control--I'm in! 

What's your favorite book trailer of the week?
