Ward's Pick: Reign of the Fallen by Richmond author Sarah Glenn Marsh. This book is totally off-genre for me (Young Adult Fantasy), but I'm so glad I ventured into new territory because I totally loved it! Odessa, also known as Sparrow for her ability to fly through the Deadlands, is a master necromancer who is pitted against a mysterious evil force after her boyfriend and and teachers are killed by powerful Shade. Her struggle is compromised by grief, addiction to a prescription drug, a collapsing government (sounds familiar), but this teenage necromancer proves strong and compassionate enough to triumph. 

About the book: Odessa is one of Karthia's master necromancers, catering to the kingdom's ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it's Odessa's job to raise them by retrieving their souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised--the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.

A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa's necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead--and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer's magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?
