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 is this book a must read? Another YA female empowerment? Really? Ummm, YES, REALLY! Because we need books like these, more strong-willed heroine storiesImage result for feminism gif

I want every girl, every woman, and man to read female empowerment books. And if it has to be fantasy fiction, let’s start with A. C. Gaughen. Ms. Gaughen Scarlet series is a poetic and transcendent story with a voice and writing style, exclusively to this author alone.This beloved Historical romance tale is a retelling of a female Robin Hood. Scarlet is a courageous story that is full of passion and sorrows at numerous turns throughout this entire series. This badass heroine is a powerful, intriguing female that teaches us, that no matter what, we can accomplish anything. And this is the lesson that I look for in books, this is the books that we need more of, to teach others that we too can.Image result for feminism gif

I want everyone to become empowered and learn that we woman are enough and that we can do anything, as well as anyone.  I want every mother and father to teach their daughters and sons, their friends the meaning of feminism and teach them that they can coexist together and accomplish anything if they put their mind and will to it. We are equals.

Therefore, I know that this book will be ANOTHER kickass tale. Ms. Gaughen does not disappoint and I  cannot wait for Reign the Earth I know without a doubt in my mind that this story will be an epic story. This isn’t the only empowering book on feminism, there are many out there. But this author is unquestionably a great place to start with.

About A.C. Gaughen

I am shamelessly addicted to staying up far too late (it feels like stealing time), diet coke (it burns so good), Scotland (stupid country stole my heart and won’t give it back. Interpol has been ineffective for prosecution) and thieves (so I guess I’m not that mad at Scotland).
