Synopsis:

  • Stolen from her family as a child, Aspasia has clawed her way up the ranks of Cyrus’s black market empire to captain her own trading vessel–and she risks it all every time she uses her powerful magic to free as many women, children, and Elementae from slavery as she can.
  • But Cyrus is close to uncovering her secrets–not only that Aspasia is a wind Elementa with the ability to sail her ship through the sky, but that she is also searching for her lost family. And if Aspasia can’t find her younger siblings before Cyrus does, she will never be able to break free.
  • Armed with her loyal crew full of Elementae and a new recruit who controls an intriguing power, Aspasia finds herself in the center of a brewing war that spans every inch of the ocean, and her power alone may not be enough to save her friends, family, and freedom.

Which strong women would I
choose to Reign the Earth with?

REIGN THE EARTH pic

Of course, I would have to pick two of the most notable women that have impacted my life in the most positive, fiercest, and strongest way: Amelia Earhart and Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

My obsession with Amelia Earhart and her mysterious whereabouts, began in grade school. I checked out every book I could find on her in my school library and county library. Not only did I learn about her historical aviation flying adventures, but I also found out that as a young adult and throughout her whole life she always faced her challenges head on. Amelia not only challenged and pushed herself, but she challenged societal standards and pioneered a leeway for women to accomplish their dreams. I would love to have a fierce spirited adventurer like Amelia by my side if I were to reign the earth.

I am a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan and some of you may already know that it is my all-time favorite show. This show was the first media outlet to show me that women can be spunky, determined, witty, and badass fighters. Having the Chosen One at my side during my reign of earth would not only provide me a helping hand when it came to fighting off bad guys, but Buffy would never hold back any sarcasm or words of wisdom. Hey, this girl died twice, and she still kept fighting the good fight and saving the world a lot.
