REIGN of the FALLEN by Sarah Glenn Marsh / Book Spotlight #ReignoftheFallen

Today's spotlight is for a book I had the chance of reading the manuscript for, and my word, I absolutely loved it! It's a book that I didn't even know about until the publisher reached out to me about it. Since I loved it, I wanted to spotlight it today on the blog so that other readers could add it to their TBR lists. 

Check out this cover! It was recently revealed and it is an AWESOME cover. It's so fitting for this story. I love it. 

Below is my quick review / blurb I shared on Goodreads. When it's closer to the release date, I'll be sharing my full review. Trust me if you love fantasy, you'll enjoy this one. If you don't, I still think you'll like it.

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.... (Goodreads)

An unforgettable, fast paced fantasy. With rich world building, characters you can't help but fall in love with, and a protagonist who's epic journey I was completely immersed in. This mesmerizing read has it all! One of my favorite reads this year.
