Death Diggers Handbook, #2
August 17, 2021
Anchor Group Publishing
Cover Designed by:
Death Diggers Handbook series:
The queen on her throne, the veil sealed tight.
For a moment, all in Carnage Crossing seemed right.
Magnificent galas. The waltzing dead.
A town of corpses happy in their homestead.
But darkness crept in, drawn by venom and spite,
Corrupting the island for its twisted delight.
A plague of decay sweeps over the land,
Reducing its victims to grains of sand.
To protect her people, the Corpse Queen must rise,
And gather what’s left of her crumbling allies.
Can the queen save them all from their grisly plight?
Or will she be hunted when her past comes to light?

Why.... Oh why!!!! To end on a cliffhanger! To leave readers with more questions. Wow! What storytelling.... Stacey Rourke just grabs readers from beginning to end. She builds that excitement and trepidation to what lies ahead in the story. All the secrets that were revealed... Really?!?! Whoa!! Rotting Reign kept me absolutely at the "edge of my seat" with apprehension at what lies ahead for the queen and the people of Carnage Crossing.
Rotting Reign begins where Corpse Queen left off. From there, the Corpse Queen again is faced with another dire predicament as she continues to settle in as queen of Carnage Crossing. The macabre and uncanny lives in Carnage Crossing must again be saved. As chaos ensues, the Corpse Queen's past is revealed in which it is the key to helping her people.
My heart was definitely racing with foreboding with each turn of the page. I was so engrossed into the story; I just had to get to the end to know what becomes of the queen and the citizens of Carnage Crossing. When I did get to the gripping end, so much of Corpse Queen's past was revealed that it felt like my heart was "ripped out of my chest." Whoa! 🤣 Since we are talking about revelations... That revelation at the end made for a dramatic cliffhanger. OMG! 😱
I so NEED the next book now! Must know what happens next.
