"This edgy fantasy doesn't just blur boundaries of genre, of gender, of past and present, life and death--it explodes them." --Cinda Williams Chima, New York Timesbestselling author of The Seven Realms and The Shattered Realms
Without the dead, she'd be no one.
Odessa is one of Karthia's master necromancers, catering to the kingdom's ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it's Odessa's job to raise them by retrieving their soul from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised: the Dead must remain shrouded. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, a grotesque transformation begins, turning the Dead into terrifying, bloodthirsty Shades.
A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears around the kingdom. Soon, a crushing loss of one of her closest companions leaves Odessa shattered, and reveals a disturbing conspiracy in Karthia: Someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead--and training them to attack. Odessa is forced to contemplate a terrifying question: What if her magic is the weapon that brings the kingdom to its knees?
Fighting alongside her fellow mages--and a powerful girl as enthralling as she is infuriating--Odessa must untangle the gruesome plot to destroy Karthia before the Shades take everything she loves.
Welcome to the Reign of the Fallen Blog Tour👑
We would really like to thank Penguin Teen for giving us the amazing opportunity of being part of the Reign of the Fallen Blog Tour, it really means a lot to us, it’s a honor and we literally jumped out of emotion when we got the news❤️🙌
I really don’t know how to start this review, believe me when I say that if I could write this review with emojis I definitely would!
There would be lots of ♥️ 🔥 💀 ⚔️ 🗡 and swoons!!! And before you ask yourself
“Did she liked it?” Well, I totally did, in fact I LOVED this book!
I’m a huge fan of Sarah’s writing style, I loved Fear The Drowning Deep so much and after I finished reading Reign of the Fallen I found myself saying “Well, she did it again!!!!” Because this book was amazing & fantastical🙌 I was hooked from the VERY FIRST PAGE.
One of the many things I like about Sarah’s writing style is that she starts her books in a way that makes me want to keep reading more. The book started with a shockingly-amazing 😉 sentence that makes you wonder what could possibly happen next? And guess what? That feeling never goes away, if you read this book you will feel like that during the whole story ❤️
Now, what can I say about this book? If I could only use three words to describe it I would pick:
DARK. MAGICAL. UNIQUE.
One of the things that makes this book so special, is how dark it can but I also loved how funny and sad it was at certain times. Sarah made me laugh MANY times at the things the characters said, specially Jax ❤️ *inserts all the hearts* , but she also made me cry as well😢 😭 and that is really one of the things I love about books, when they bring these kind of emotions out of you ♥️
I loved all the characters of this book, Odessa, Evander, Meredy, Jax ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ , Valoria, Simeon, they are so amazing, super brave, and the fact that some of them are necromancers and can bring royals who have died back to life makes this book even more amazing.
Odessa is a very brave and care free character. She fights for the ones she loves the most even when it means she has to risk her life in order to do it. She is an orphan and being a necromancer – the sparrow – is what makes her feel like she belongs somewhere, and while my heart broke for her sometimes, I’m glad she found strength in herself to keep going ♥️
This book has lots of epic twists that will make you want to keep reading till the very last page. It has amazing world-building, brave characters, action and romance ❤️ I highly recommend you to read it, it’s a masterpiece that I’m sure will captivate your heart as soon as you start to read it.
We had the amazing opportunity of hosting a #MTMC18 chat (Meet the Main Characters of 2018) for Sarah and we wanted to share with you guys some of the quotes that we posted during the chat. We love these so much and we really hope you guys like them as well❤️❤️❤️
