5 Reasons You’re Going to Fall in Love with Reign of the Fallen

SHARE

We’re about to knock you dead with the sequel to Sarah Glenn Marsh’s stunning fantasy series: Song of the Dead.

So let’s get you caught up on the first book, Reign of the FallenSimply put? Diverse. Edgy. Not to mention, romantic. Need more reasons to get buried in this read? Here are our Top 5 reasons:

 

1) Are you trying to say the cover isn’t reason enough?!

Ugh, okay, we’ll give you four more reasons. But JUST LOOK AT IT.

2) The world building. THE. WORLD. BUILDING.

In a world where the dead and the living walk together, peace depends on coexistence. Trusted necromancers, who are able to revive the royal family to continue their reign in death, gifted shapeshifters, and a variety of other magically inclined characters bring Sarah Glenn Marsh’s fantasy to life.

3) You’re going to fall in love with this protagonist.

Odessa is the most gifted necromancer in Karthia and knows it. Not only does she provide us with action-packed scenes, but brings the emotional game to the table as well. Throughout REIGN, she’s torn between her first love, Evander, and his sister, Meredy—both equally make her heart stop.

4) Goodreads is losing its mind over it.

 

 

 

 

5) The author, Sarah Glenn Marsh, is amazing.

We were lucky enough to hang with her and talk about everything from Harry Potter to Halsey, and she’s simply the best!
