Reign of Ash
Book 2 of the Ascendant Kingdoms Saga
By Gail Z. Martin
Following Ice Forged comes this second novel in the Ascendant Kingdoms Saga - a tale of war, heroism and sorcery from one of the most popular fantasy writers of recent years.
Blaine McFadden survived six years in the brutal Velant prison colony, exiled for murder. When war devastates his homeland of Donderath, it also destroys the intentional magic on which Donderath and its fellow kingdoms rely. Blaine and a small group of fellow exiles return to a lawless wasteland where unrestrained magic storms appear and disappear unpredictably, and monsters roam the ruins.
Yet rumours persist that the seeds of a new magic rest with a dangerous, ancient ritual and a handful of survivors who have disappeared. McFadden resolves to find these survivors and work the ritual, despite the danger, to restore the magic and end the chaos. He rallies a small and desperate army for a last stand, knowing that if they fail, the civilisation of the Ascendant Kingdoms dies with them.
Gail Martin is the author of the popular Chronicles of the Necromancer series. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband and three children.
