Together they must make one last stand knowing that if they fail, the civilization of the Ascendant Kingdoms dies with them. Picaresque series hero Blaine McFadden, free after six years in the Velant prison colony, strives to revive magic in the face of widespread devastation following war between Donderath and Meroven.
McFadden, the last living Lord of the Blood, pits his motley crew of supporters against conquest-minded talishte vampire warlord Pentreath Reese and henchman Vedran Pollard. Martin fleshes out her crowded canvas with a romantic attachment between swashbuckling McFadden and courtesan and assassin Kestel Falke. Supernatural intervention adds to the mounting tension as talishte fight on both sides, and it provides comic relief when Wraith Lord Kierken Vandholt, McFadden's ghostly counterpart, takes possession of medium Bevin Connor.
Martin draws upon traditional genre elements, such as self-sacrifice and fate vs. More Books by Gail Z.

Reign of Ash (Ascendant Kingdoms Saga Series #2)
We asked her what readers should expect from Reign of Ash and afterwards show off the fantastic cover of the upcoming novel. That serves them well in the very dangerous and unstable conditions in post-war Donderath. Blaine is still very much at the center of the group, and in Reign of Ash, several new characters get added to the circle, some old friends and new allies. Bevin Connor remains an important viewpoint character.
Reign of Ash
We met him in Ice Forged fleeing for his life when Donderath fell, and see him emerge as an unexpectedly heroic person. No one is surprised at that more than Connor himself! Pentreath Reece and Vedran Pollard have their own agenda for the post-war wreckage, and their vision involves seeing themselves emerging as the ultimate power players.

Gail Z Martin does a wonderful job of not just continuing the momentum of the series but also building upon it. The world she creates and the characters she peoples it with are believable and enjoyable. The concept of a post apocalyptic medieval society makes for a very intriguing story.
