Beyond the Shadowed Earth by Joanna Ruth Meyer

Today I wanted to take a moment to share with you all one of my most anticipated reads of 2020 – Beyond the Shadowed Earth by Joanna Ruth Meyer. I’ve had the pleasure of reading work by Meyer in the past, and as soon as this one popped up on my radar, I knew I needed to read it. Set in the same universe as her Beneath the Haunting Sea, but a separate story arc, it’s sure to be an incredible journey.

The Fantastic Flying Book Club is hosting a giveaway for a finished copy of this book, so give the blurb a read, visit the author on her website and/or social media, and enter the giveaway below!

I want to give a huge thanks to Joanna Ruth Meyer, Page Street Kids, and The Fantastic Flying Book Club for giving me the opportunity to get my hands on this book early. I’ll have a review for you all very soon!

SERIES: Beneath the Haunting Sea
PUBLISHED: January 14, 2020 by Page Street Kids
PAGES: 400
GENRE: Young Adult, Fantasy


It has always been Eda’s dream to become empress, no matter the cost. Haunted by her ambition and selfishness, she’s convinced that the only way to achieve her goal is to barter with the gods. But all requests come with a price and Eda bargains away the soul of her best friend in exchange for the crown.

Years later, her hold on the empire begins to crumble and her best friend unexpectedly grows sick and dies. Gnawed by guilt and betrayal, Eda embarks on a harrowing journey to confront the very god who gave her the kingdom in the first place. However, she soon discovers that he’s trapped at the center of an otherworldly labyrinth and that her bargain with him is more complex than she ever could have imagined.

Set in the same universe as Joanna’s debut, Beneath the Haunting Sea, Beyond the Shadowed Earth combines her incredible world building and lush prose with a new, villainous lead.



The Author

Joanna Ruth Meyer

Joanna Ruth Meyer hails from Mesa, Arizona, where she lives with her dear family, a rascally feline, and an enormous grand piano. When she’s not writing, she’s trying to convince her students that Bach is actually awesome, or plotting her escape from the desert. She loves good music, thick books, looseleaf tea, rainstorms, and staring out of windows. One day, she aspires to own an old Victorian house with creaky wooden floors and a tower (for writing in, of course!).
