CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Series: The Elementae #1
Release date: January 30th 2018
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Pre-order: Amazon


Synopsis via Goodreads:

Shalia is a proud daughter of the desert, but after years of devastating war with the adjoining kingdom, her people are desperate for peace. Willing to trade her freedom to ensure the safety of her family, Shalia becomes Queen of the Bonelands.

But she soon learns that her husband, Calix, is motivated only by his desire to exterminate the Elementae—mystical people who can control earth, wind, air, and fire. Even more unsettling are Shalia’s feelings for her husband’s brother, which unleash a power over the earth she never knew she possessed—a power that could get her killed. As rumors of a rebellion against Calix spread, Shalia must choose between the last chance for peace and her own future as an Elementae.

This intense, richly drawn high-fantasy by the author of Scarlet will hold readers spellbound.

  1. I read A.C.'s Scarlet back when it was first released and loved it, but I haven't read anything by her since then. I think I'll be changing that with this one though! I've been loving high fantasy books lately and rebellions always catch my eye. Thanks for sharing!
