'Ashes of the Sun is fantasy at its finest' Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld

Four hundred years ago, a cataclysmic war cracked the world open. Amid the ashes, the Dawn Republic now stands guard over lands littered with eldritch relics and cursed by plaguespawn outbreaks. But a new conflict is looming and brother and sister Gyre and Maya have found themselves on opposite sides of it.

At the age of five, Maya was taken by the Twilight Order and trained to be a centarch, wielding forbidden arcana to enforce the Dawn Republic's rule. On that day, her brother, Gyre, swore to destroy the Order that stole his sister... whatever the cost.

Twelve years later, brother and sister are two very different people: she is the Twilight Order's brightest prodigy; he is a thief, bandit and revolutionary. Together, the siblings will discover that not even ties of blood will keep them from splitting the world in two.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Magic, mutants, and mayhem abound in Django Wexler's Ashes of the Sun, but there's also plenty of brain food to be had in this tale of a post-catastrophe world suffering under the yoke of unbending authoritarian rule. A fast-paced and highly entertaining ride through a compelling and original world' -- Anthony Ryan, NYT bestselling author of Blood Song
'Reminiscent of Final Fantasy, Masters of the Universe, and Moorcock's The Jewel in the Skull, Ashes of the Sun is a science-fantasy adventure brimming with everything that is weird and wonderful about a world where magic and technology have fused in the fires of a fallen civilization' -- Jonathan French, author of The Grey Bastards
'Ashes of the Sun shows that Wexler is a master of high fantasy. His plotting and this post-apocalyptic setting will warp your mind!' -- SM Stirling, NYT bestselling author
'Gorgeous writing, powerfully drawn characters, and an exciting storyline!' -- KD 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' -- Peter Clines, author of The Fold and Ex-Heroes
'A high-octane, dystopian fantasy thrill-ride ... Scintillating ... Unpredictable and shocking too. Highly recommended' * Grimdark Magazine *
'Wexler's best work yet ... Ashes of the Sun has scale and pace, and tension and batshit cool scenery, and I enjoyed it a hell of lot' * Tor.com *
'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 *
'Wexler demonstrates a talent for worldbuilding in the impressive post-apocalyptic fantasy that launches his Burningblade and Silvereye trilogy' * Publishers Weekly. *
'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. *
'There are monsters to fight and relics from a now-vanished, more advanced civilisation, which makes for some colourful worldbuilding ... The prose and pacing are strong, bolstered by impressively vivid action scenes. Wexler gradually raises the stakes' * SFX Magazine *
'An action-filled book with plenty of daring escapes and breathtaking duels between competing forces of magic ... Ashes of the Sun is a fun-filled, exiting, fast-paced fantasy romp that Django Wexler executes with impressive skill and precision' * Zealot Script *

“An excellent start to a fascinating new triology”

Ashes of the Sun is one of those novels you need to pick up and read. It has a fantastic book cover which I believe illustrates the magnitude of this novel. Star Wars influences are written all over this book, and... More
