Each new twist is a cap­ti­vat­ing wel­come in this first ti­tle of an in­spir­ing new se­ries.

Reign the Earth will lead to both gasps and sighs as its hero­ine, Shalia, nav­i­gates her way in a for­eign court with few al­lies.

In or­der to es­tab­lish peace be­tween her peo­ple, who are desert no­mads who take great pride in their clans, and the peo­ple of Tri­fec­tate, a pow­er­ful king­dom with a con­sum­ing re­li­gion, Shalia agrees to marry a for­eign king. In turn, the Tri­fec­tate will search Shalia’s beloved desert, and the clans­peo­ple will not stop them.

Shalia is un­der­stand­ably ner­vous as she goes to meet her betrothed, Calix, and be­gin their life to­gether. She knows that he was in­stru­men­tal in wip­ing out the Ele­men­tae, who have the power to con­trol the el­e­ments: earth, wa­ter, air, and fire. Shalia’s best friend, who is like a sis­ter to her, pos­sesses the abil­ity to con­trol wa­ter, and must hide from those who be­lieve that the Ele­men­tae have all been ex­tin­guished.
