I can't wait for... Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday)

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

Normally I'm very opposed to books with even a hint of an affair or someone cheating on someone. I'm hoping this one won't cross that line or at least makes sense to me... I'm super excited because I LOVED Scarlet! This author amazed me with how deep and well written that series was. I'm really, really curious about her switch in setting and subgenre, which is why it's my pick this week...

Reign the Earth
(The Elementae #1)
by A.C. Gaughen
YA Fantasy
Hardcover & ebook, 448 Pages
January 30th 2018 by Bloomsbury


Shalia is a proud daughter of the desert, but after years of devastating war with the adjoining kingdom, her people are desperate for peace. Willing to trade her freedom to ensure the safety of her family, Shalia becomes Queen of the Bonelands.

But she soon learns that her husband, Calix, is motivated only by his desire to exterminate the Elementae—mystical people who can control earth, wind, air, and fire. Even more unsettling are Shalia’s feelings for her husband’s brother, which unleash a power over the earth she never knew she possessed—a power that could get her killed. As rumors of a rebellion against Calix spread, Shalia must choose between the last chance for peace and her own future as an Elementae.

This intense, richly drawn high-fantasy by the author of Scarlet will hold readers spellbound.
