A War in Crimson Embers

Book Three of the Crimson Empire

By Alex Marshall

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

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.

For Pyke and his crew it should have been just another heist. Travel to a backwater desert planet, break into a museum, steal a tracking device then use it to find a ship buried in the planet's vast and trackless sandy wastes. Except that the museum vault is a bio-engineered chamber, and the tracking device is sought-after by another gang of treasure hunters led by an old adversary of Pyke's, the devious Raven Kaligara. Also, the ship is quarter of a million years old and about two kilometres long and somewhere aboard it is the Essavyr Key, a relic to unlock all the treasures and technologies of a lost civilisation . . .

The great war cannot be stopped. The tyrant Geder Palliako begins a conquest aimed at bringing peace to the world, though his resources are stretched too thin.

Clara Kalliam, freed by having fallen from grace, remakes herself as a 'loyal traitor' and starts building an underground resistance movement that seeks to undermine Geder through those closest to him. Cithrin bel Sarcour is apprenticing in a city that's taken over by Antea, and uses her status as Geder's one-time lover to cover up an underground railroad smuggling refugees to safety. And Marcus Wester and Master Kit race against time and Geder Palliako's men in an attempt to awaken a force that could change the fate of the world.
