King of Ashes: Book One of The Firemane Saga

We rated this book:


A brand-new world is launched in dramatic fashion.

A kingdom has been betrayed and destroyed, and for the first time in centuries, the future is uncertain. As the kingdom falls, one influential man shapes the future to come with two decisions: the fate of an orphaned heir and the honoring of a debt. As years pass, both of these choices will have huge ramifications for not only the four remaining kingdoms but the world.

Although steeped in traditional high-fantasy tropes, the world of North and South Tembria feels fresh, a complex and fascinating place with several different, fully-realized societies, all rich with nuance and texture. Additional hints of monsters and magic add flavor to a tale of average people who may prove to be extraordinary.

This is a master storyteller at work, setting so many possibilities in motion even with the simplest exchanges that the reader’s imagination runs wild with all the potential threads to follow. A cynic would call this book a launching pad for the game to come. What it represents, in reality, is a quilt in progress, some patches fully formed, others waiting to be sewn.

King of Ashes is the start of something special.
