Synopsis:  The Dead must stay buried.

Karthia is nothing like it used to be. The kingdom's borders are open for the first time in nearly three hundred years, and raising the dead has been outlawed. Odessa is determined to explore the world beyond Karthia's waters, hoping to heal a heart broken in more ways than she can count. But with Meredy joining the ocean voyage, vanquishing her sorrow will be a difficult task.

Despite the daily reminder of the history they share, Odessa and Meredy are fascinated when their journey takes them to a land where the Dead rule the night and dragons roam the streets. Odessa can't help being mesmerized by the new magic--and by the girl at her side. But just as she and Meredy are beginning to explore the new world, a terrifying development in Karthia summons them home at once.

Growing political unrest on top of threats from foreign invaders means Odessa and Meredy are thrust back into the lives they tried to leave behind while specters from their past haunt their tenuous relationship. Gathering a force big enough to ward off enemies seems impossible, until one of Queen Valoria's mages creates a weapon that could make them invincible. As danger continues to mount inside the palace, Odessa fears that without the Dead, even the greatest invention won't be enough to save their fates.

In this enthralling, heartrending sequel to Reign of the Fallen, Odessa faces the fight of her life as the boundaries between the Dead and the living are challenged in a way more gruesome than ever before.

"Sarah Glenn Marsh vividly blurs the lines between hope and fear, love and hate, right and wrong as she explores a world where death doesn't have to be the end." —Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of Give the Dark my Love

"Mesmerizing. Sarah's writing is as magical as the world she has created." —Alexandra Christo, author of To Kill a Kingdom




My Review:  This book was amazing!! I loved book one and this one was even better than that.  I could not put it down at all!! The dynamics of this story were so spot on for our time. Marsh did such a great job bringing to life these characters and this world.  This one did go a little darker than the first book but that worked out well.  I do hope we get even more out of this world.  As I have fallen so in love with it that I don't want to see it end.  There were twists and turns and that ending I didn't see coming.  #INEEDMORE!



Go Into This One Knowing: Just a little bit darker
