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.
