Bastard Promotion: Ashes of a Black Frost by Chris Evans

The Iron Elves series is one that I've been very curious about, seems like a fun one. As always, time restraints have prevented me from trying the series out. With a new book, Ashes of a Black Frost, coming up soon, seems like now is the perfect opportunity to do so. Hopefully, I'll manage to catch up soon. First two books in the series are A Darkness Forged in Fire and The Light of Burning Shadows.

Of interest, don't miss out on a live chat on Twitter with hashtag #NYCC with @simonschuster & @CEvans_Author next week on October 13th. It will be from noon until 4pm EST.

Bones jutted from the sand at angles—not odd angles, though, for that would suggest that there were ways bones could protrude that made sense—and the eyes of those still living stared and saw nothing.

Amidst a scene of carnage on a desert battlefield blanketed in metallic snow, Major Konowa Swift Dragon sees his future, and it is one drenched in shadow and blood. Never mind that he has won a grand victory for the Calahrian Empire. He came here in search of his lost regiment of elves, while the Imperial Prince came looking for the treasures of a mystical library, and both ventures have failed. But Konowa knows, as do the Iron Elves—both living and dead—that another, far more important battle now looms before them. The campaign in the desert was only the latest obstacle on the twisted, darkening path leading inexorably to the Hyntaland, and the final confrontation with the dreaded Shadow Monarch.

In this third novel of musket and magic in Chris Evans's Iron Elves saga, Konowa's ultimate journey is fraught with escalating danger. A vast, black forest finds a new source of dark power, spawning creatures even more monstrous than the blood trees from which they evolve. The maniacally unstable former emissary of the Shadow Monarch hungers for revenge, leading an army of ravenous beasts bent on utterly destroying the Iron Elves. A reluctant hero, Private Alwyn Renwar, struggles to maintain his connection to this world and that of the loyalty of the shades of the dead. And in a maze of underground tunnels, Visyna Tekoy, whom Konowa counts among those he has loved and lost, fights for her life against the very elves he so desperately wants to find.

And so Konowa sets off from this Canyon of Bones, pursuing his freedom from a curse that has cast his life in darkness. For though his long, violent trek may indeed lead him to his destiny, he is ill prepared for the discovery he will make . . . with the fate of the Iron Elves, and the world, hinging on the courage of one wrathful elf.

  1. I read the first book in this series. LONG before I started blogging. And have the second one here to read... yes that growing tbr stack. And meet Chris at New York Comic Con last year. :) Great post!

  2. I came quite close to buying the first book a couple of months ago, but it was a part of an order of about 3 books that I ended up not making.

  3. Have the first 2 books in the series but also haven't gotten around to reading them yet. Perhaps I should move them up the list but it's increasingly becoming difficult to shuffle books around. Not that I've been particularly good at sticking to the current order...

  4. Wow, I like your site. and your profile pic :]
    But all this books are new to me.
    If I wanted to get started reading them which one should I start with?
