I feel so blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to be a part of the book tour for the sequel of the book I loved the most last year.
I cannot thank Penguin Random House International enough for providing me with both the copies and for giving me a chance to be introduced in this beautiful world filled with Nacromancers.
I have read and gushed about my love for the first book previously which I will here Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
The Second book “Song of the Dead released on 22nd January, 2019 and I was so happy to have received an early copy through PRH International, you guys made my whole year truly.
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.
I was super thrilled to be back with these characters. They were like my family. I cannot stay away from them much longer and it pains my heart that the series end here?!? Please don’t.
I love this world and how there is a mix of not just the little politics and fantasy but also the heartwarming friendship and family love that I miss in most of the fantasy.
I find that it is hard for me normally to get along and fall in love with all the characters in a fantasy. There characters feel like home to me and I can’t stay away from them.
The plot was slow and impactful. Not too much and not too little in action. But as I suggest with the previous book it is book you must not fly through but giggle with the characters and cry with chaos.
I have read many books with ordinary writing but with Reign of the fallen and Song of the dead I was so mesmerized with how beautifully she writes some simple scenes. I love how beautifully she knit words in sentences. I really would keep on want to read more and more of her words.
And she is an excellent human being. That kind of kindness is rare.
I loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved loved is book till infinity.
Thank you so much for writing this, Sarah.
Thank you so much Penguin Random House International for giving me this opportunity to cherish this life of characters and the world. And to hold them near forever.
