Right, I don’t blog much. Don’t blog at all, really, for the last couple of years. But I’m going to make a bit more of an effort. We’ll see how it shakes out.
Today, I’m going to talk a little about Legacy of Ash.For those who’ve managed to avoid my social media presence for the last few months – Hi, how are you? How did you find your way to this blog? Please let me know in the comments – Legacy of Ash is my epic fantasy debut, being published by Orbit in November.
There’s a signed, limited edition hardback available in the UK, plus English-language eBook and audiobooks available pretty much wherever.
If you’re looking to dive in, please, please, please pre-order – not only to show your support, but also to avoid disappointment. The hardbacks are thin on the ground, and a strictly limited run.
I’m sure we’ll talk about the book itself in more detail in weeks to come (I really want to talk about it, but, you know, spoilers…)
A shadow has fallen over the Tressian Republic.
Ruling families – once protectors of justice and democracy – now plot against one another with sharp words and sharper knives. Blinded by ambition, they remain heedless of the threat posed by the invading armies of the Hadari Empire.
Yet as Tressia falls, heroes rise.
Viktor Akadra is the Republic’s champion. A warrior without equal, he hides a secret that would see him burned as a heretic. Josiri Trelan is Viktor’s sworn enemy. A political prisoner, he dreams of reigniting his mother’s failed rebellion. And yet Calenne, Josiri’s sister, seeks only to break free of their tarnished legacy; to escape the expectation and prejudice that haunts the Trelan name.
As war spreads across the Republic, these three must set aside their differences in order to save their homeland. However, decades of bad blood are not easily forgotten – victory will demand a darker price than any of them could have imagined.
‘Packed with big battles, shadowy intrigue and a large cast of characters, Legacy of Ash is an absorbing debut’
‘Legacy of Ash is hugely entertaining. A well-written tale of flawed, interesting characters set in a nation on the brink of rebellion. It’s a tale of heroism, loyalty and treachery, and it has some really cool magic. There’s a lot to like here and I for one am looking forward to the next book.’
