See the EXCLUSIVE Character Reveal for REIGN OF THE FALLEN by Sarah Glenn Marsh!

SHARE

Here at Penguin Teen, we’re in the business of bringing you the inside scoop about books that you didn’t even know you were dying to read. Today we’re here to reveal the characters from Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh, complete with a beautiful illustration and a description from the author. Read a bit about the book, check out the amazing character guide, then add this book (coming this January!) to your TBR as soon as humanly possible.

 

About the book:

An LGBT fantasy series that follows a talented necromancer who must face down a deadly nemesis who has learned how to turn her magic into a weapon.

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 souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised–the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.

A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa’s necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer’s magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?

A lavish fantasy with a surprising and breathtaking LGBT romance at its core, Reign of the Fallen is a gutsy, unpredictable read that will grab readers by the throat and never let go….

 

 

ODESSA_FINAL_CMYK

Odessa: Odessa of Grenwyr is a Master Necromancer, a job that’s more than just work to her—having been raised by the Sisters of Death in their convent, her magic is the source of her identity and pride. Nicknamed Sparrow, she’s known for being able to navigate pathways home from the Deadlands as though the living world is always calling to her.

 

EVANDER_FINAL_CMYK

Evander: Evander Crowther is a Master Necromancer and heir to a small fortune he’d gladly forsake if it meant finally getting to explore the wide world his father had started to map before his untimely death. But since leaving Karthia is forbidden, at least he has the ever-changing Deadlands, the spirit world, to explore when he’s restless.

 

MEREDY_FINAL_CMYK

Meredy: Meredy Crowther is the younger of Evander’s two sisters and the youngest Beast Master in a century. Ambitious and adventurous, she chose to forge her magical bond with a grizzly bear called Lysander.

 

KASMIRA_FINAL_CMYK

Kasmira: Kasmira Rees is proud to be captain of the Paradise, a smuggling ship that’s mostly seaworthy. A self-taught weather worker, Kasmira often changes the fickle winds around Karthia to blow in her ship’s favor.

 

SIMEON_FINAL_CMYK

Simeon: Simeon of Grenwyr is a newly-appointed Master Necromancer who loves to laugh and joke with his boyfriend Danial and his best friend Jax despite the grim realities of his work. Raised by the Sisters of Death along with Odessa, he’s like a brother to her.

 

JAX_FINAL_CMYK

Jax: Jax of Lorness is a newly-appointed Master Necromancer with a penchant for thrill-seeking, risk-taking, and swordplay. He’s rarely seen out of the company of his necromancy partner, Simeon. He’d gladly show you any of his twelve tattoos.

 

VALORIA_FINAL_CMYK

Valoria: Valoria Juline Wylding is the eldest (living) princess in Karthia’s ruling bloodline. Rarely seen within the palace walls, she spends her days in her private tower where she reads forbidden books and invents things in secret.
