This is the first book by this author that I have read and from the very first page I was transported to a fantasy world where there are princesses, temples, defendants and talking dogs. I loved the vivid explanations of the fantasy world and all of the temple history. The fight scenes were so descriptive I could see it all so plainly as if I was watching it on the big screen. The characters were well developed and the twin princesses are both warriors that have different strengths. This book has romance, excellent fights and twists that you never seen coming and I definately didn't. I couldn't get enough a I can't wait to see what is in store in book 2.
I received this book for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like “The Mists of Avalon" - only better! 24 July 2015
By Becket - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
K.L. Bone is much more than a brilliant author, she is an incredible scholar as well as a rising star in the high fantasy genre. Her writing style and storytelling talent remind me often of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s “The Mists of Avalon.” Bone provides the reader with deeply dimensional characters and beautifully intertwining plots, not unlike the magnificent brocade patterns of a medieval tapestry. From the very first words I cannot help but get immediately drawn into the gorgeous, fascinating, and comprehensive story of the twin princesses, Mariana and Ameria, both eagerly competing against each other to become Queen of the land of Kale. Royal bloodlines, fateful tournaments, temples, gods, prophecies, primeval powers — the book is a positively genius page-turner. Rise of the Temple Gods, Heir to Kale, is an absolute must read!
5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! What a read! Cannot wait to read Heir to Koloso next! 7 Jun. 2016
By Dana Busenbark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Make sure you have tissues ready, because there are several parts in this book where I needed them. Mariana and her twin sister America are Princesses in the Kingdom of Kale. Mariana is a student at the temple of Kale and Ameria is a student at the temple of Koloso. Both of them are the Golden Ranked student. That is the highest fighting rank towards becoming a Defendant that the students can attain. Watching the tournaments that take place both in the temples and the one we see outside the temple are works of art. I felt like I was actually one of the people sitting there, watching it. I could practically picture it in my mind if I closed my eyes. Over the course of the book, a number of things happen. These things are potentially life altering for everyone concerned in the book when attacks are made on the Princesses, on the King, on his brother and Heir, on the Defendants of the Gods that have become servants of those Gods. We find out about the curse of the twins, if it is indeed a curse, who the temples are named after and why. We find out many things such as who is behind the attacks. When I found that out I was blown away. Yes, people die in this book and I own't say who, but that is why the tissues are needed. This truly is not a book to be missed. I cannot wait for the second part of this series to come out. Mariana is the Heir to Kale, while her sister Ameria is the Heir to Koloso. How do these things put them at odds with one another/ what oath does Mariana invoke at the dinner that she's summoned to at the palace by her Uncle, the king? What does that oath mean? How does tha tplay into either her favor or disfavor at the end of the book? You're going to need to read and find out exactly what happens. Because there were lots of surprises in this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!!! 28 Sept. 2016

*This book was provide by the author for an honest review.

Beautiful! Heir to Kale is a masterful display of word manipulation. She weaves a story that is as intricate and complex as the music played at the symphony. Heir of Kale is filled with musical delights and tantalizes the mind. She works her characters into a fantastic tale of intrigue and politics.

Within the royal family, twins were born with an elaborate ancient prophecy and a dangerous path to travel. Princesses Mariana and Ameria, are the twin royals and are their temples champions. The two were taken as children to separate, yet equally great Temples.

I am a lover of intricate world building and consistent character development. BONE NAILED IT! She is going to be a major power player in the Epic Fantasy genre.

5 Stars and a tip of my Nerd Girl hat!! LOVED IT!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Must read book 7 April 2014
By LRogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Heir to Kale by K.L. Bone is the first of a series that will leave you begging for the next novel. The twin princesses, Mariana and Ameria, are both desirous of becoming Queen of Kale, but only one will be the winner. They are both golden students at their training temples and will battle to see if one of them will become the Champion of the Kale Tournament. You will enjoy the beautiful setting in the Rainbow Mountains as well as the numerous surprise plot twists. The fight scenes are wonderfully choreographed and you will feel as those you are in the audience watching the tournament. A must read novel and hopefully, the sequel will be out soon.
