A War in Crimson Embers
Book Three of the Crimson Empire
By Alex Marshall
Action-packed adventure from one of epic fantasy's most exciting new voices: when a retired warrior returns to battle to seek revenge for a terrible blow, old friends and old enemies will pay the price. The explosive finale to the trilogy that began with A Crown for Cold Silver
FIVE VILLAINS. ONE MISSION. A WAR AGAINST DEVILS.
Warrior queen and pariah Cold Zosia wakes in the ashes of a burning city. Her vengeance has brought her to this - her heroic reputation in tatters, her friends scattered far and wide and her world under threat by unknown forces.
General Ji-Hyeon is trapped in the Gates between worlds, while her lover Sullen grapples with a mission from a dead goddess. The barbarian warrior Maroto is held captive by a demonic army that threatens to spill into the Crimson Empire at any moment.
The once-legendary Zosia must rally her comrades and old enemies one last time, for a battle that will be greater than any tale ever told of her deeds before. If anyone lives to tell it.
