Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"In order to reclaim her throne and save her people, an ousted queen must join forces with a young warrior in the second book of this must-read epic fantasy series by breakout author Evan Winter. Tau and his Queen, desperate to delay the impending attack on the capital by the indigenous people of Xidda, craft a dangerous plan. If Tau succeeds, the Queen will have the time she needs to assemble her forces and launch an all out assault on her own capital city, where her sister is being propped up as the 'true' Queen of the Omehi. If the city can be taken, if Tsiora can reclaim her throne, and if she can reunite her people then the Omehi have a chance to survive the onslaught"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* The second book in the Burning trilogy (after A Rage of Dragons, 2019) opens as a council of traitorous Nobles schemes to usurp the throne and shatter a tentative peace initiative. The Commoner Tau, named Champion by Queen, is uncomfortable with his new role that aggravates the remaining Noble's ingrained sense of entitlement and threatens their support of Tsiora's fragile rule. The enemy may have retreated for the moment, but they will soon return, so Tau, his sword brothers, and the Queen must gather an army to defeat the well-armed rebels. In order to reunite the people under one crown and regain the kingdom, Tau must turn others like himself into warriors, which means training his most trusted companions to fight demons in the spirit realm. With ghostly specters already beginning to haunt his waking hours, Tau fears that if he loses too many friends to the forthcoming ordeals, it may tip his mind into madness. Winter's beautifully descriptive, South African-inspired, military fantasy of war, revenge, and loss culminates with an impending battle against tremendous odds and the delivery of an unexpected plea heralding the arrival of an ancient, fearsome foe.

Author Notes

Born in England to South American parents, Evan Winter was raised in Africa near the historical territory of his Xhosa ancestors. Evan has always loved fantasy novels, but when his son was born, he realized that there weren't many epic fantasy novels featuring characters who looked like him. So, before he ran out of time, he started writing them.
