Title: Reign the Earth
Author: A.C. Gaughen
Publication Date: January 30th 2018
Summary from 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.
Why I Can’t Wait: So many high fantasy series I’ve loved are coming to a close and I’m ready to immerse myself in a new one! I love books that use the elements – earth, wind, air, and fire – so I was extremely happy to see those will be in play in this novel. GIMME GIMME!
