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.

Hey friends…it’s been a while! For those who don’t know, I’m taking a hiatus here on the blog for various reasons but hope to be back in the next month or two. TODAY is a special day though, because I am coming out of hiatus to tell you all about this AMAZING new release that you should all be adding to your reading pile.

A post shared by Sarah (@whatsarahread) on

I’ve been a fan of A.C. Gaughen ever since I fell in love with her Scarlet series a few years ago, so when I heard she was writing anew fantasy series, I had seriously high hopes. Well, let me tell you, my expectations were met…and them some. It’s a story filled with amazing world-building, intriguing characters and a fascinating magic system. I think it’s safe to say that REIGN THE EARTH has some very dark moments, that may be a bit triggering for some people, but above it is a story of hope and love and strength. The main character, Shalia, suffers some horrible injustices, but no matter what she goes through she always stays true to herself and the love of her family guides her through her darkest moments. It’s that strength and love from her family that allows her to rise above her pain and take control of her destiny.

Speaking of love and strength and shaping your own destiny, I chose two inspiring women I would want to help me REIGN THE EARTH!

Michelle Obama & Oprah Winfrey

My friends at Bloomsbury Kids asked me to talk about a woman who I would want to rule the earth with and after thinking about it for a while I surrendered to the fact that I couldn’t choose just one. When I think about strong and inspiring women who lead with love, I immediately think of Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

In an ideal world, these two amazing women would be queens of the world. Their sense of self, generous spirits and wise souls are what make the world a better place and I wish I  could spend just ONE day in their presence soaking up greatness..

  1. First of all, YAY! I was so happy to see you in my Feedly this morning!!!!! And second, I borrowed the ARC of Reign of the Earth from a friend and I’m currently reading it! I love it so far and I’m devastated that I missed her signing in NYC last night because this some serious favorite potential and I’m only 100 pages in!

  2. This is one I’m super curious about – I’ve wanted to read her Scarlet series too!
