Blood of the ChosenBurningblade and Silvereye, 2by Django Wexler

For centuries, the Dawn Republic has ruled over the land unopposed. No more.

Deep below the Gap, Gyre Silvereye discovered a city, hidden far from human eyes. There, the ghouls have dwelt for four hundred years in hibernation, awaiting the moment to wreak their vengeance on the Dawn Republic.

With their help, Gyre can finally see a way to overthrow the all-powerful Twilight Order. But the ghouls do not give their trust easily, and Gyre will need to secure the alliance of the human rebels to the south if they are to even stand a chance. And uniting the two won't be simple.

His sister Maya still fights for the Order. But after recent events, she is no longer certain where her loyalties lie. Chasing the origins of a mysterious artefact to a long-lost library, she just might find the truth – whether she is ready for it or not.

Set in a post-fantasy apocalypse – think less Lord of the Rings, more a fantasy Mad Max.

'A unique setting, an action-packed plot, and two opposed but simultaneously sympathetic narratives... This is a thrilling dream you can happily lose yourself in' British Fantasy Society

'Immensely enjoyable, this high fantasy novel contains characters and a storyline to die for... Not only is this a fast-paced beautifully diverse read, I found the humour perfectly timed... Ashes of the Sun has it all, and comes with the higher than highly recommended tag' LoveReading.
'Ashes of the Sun is a high-octane, dystopian fantasy thrill-ride... Scintillating... Unpredictable and shocking too. Highly recommended' Grimdark Magazine.
'Immersive and wondrous... Highly, highly recommended. It will take a great deal for any fantasy novel in 2020 to knock Ashes of the Sun off my top fantasy spot for the year' SFF World.
'Gorgeous writing, powerfully drawn characters, and an exciting storyline!' K.D. Edwards, author of The Last Sun and The Hanged Man.
'Exciting. Immersive. Epic. A perfect page turner and a phenomenal start to a new series'
