Blurb:

Wisp is a pyromancer – a magician who draws energy from fires to make his own flames. Leading a misfit thieving crew, he enters a desolate wasteland to steal a dead sorcerer’s skull. But his crew aren’t the only ones on the hunt, and the forest isn’t as barren as it seems …⁠⠀
⁠⠀
A lot of fantasy is so huge you’d be lucky to finish it in a month. I love that. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But that’s not the case for this book. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I wanted Fires of the Dead to be a fast-paced, pulse-pounding thrill-ride – a book you could burn through in one breathless night. Based on a lot of reader reviews, it’s done that for quite a few people!⁠⠀

It’s only free in eBook form, but you can download the free Kindle app to read it on any device or computer. Enjoy!

★★★★★ “A common misconception about fantasy novels is that they are all epic, thousand page long tomes. […] Fires of the Dead proves that you don’t need to write reams of narrative to fit all the components of a classic fantasy novel into one tale.” – Reviews Feed

★★★★★ “A gripping, fun, twisted tale of a band of misfit thieves as they adventure through charred forest to retrieve a valuable, magical item with a mega payload. […] Be prepared to smash this book out in one reading; you’ll be left wondering what’s next at every damn turn.” – Mitch Bruce, Amazon review

★★★★★ “I loved every second of it. I didn’t want to put it down. After I finished, Fires of the Dead left me wanting to continue reading about this world. Highly recommend this book for someone who loves a quick read full of action and suspense.” – Dannielle Leotta, Amazon review

★★★★★ “I could not put this book down! I wanted to keep on reading and not sleep, and ended up the next day being a very moody person with a good story on the brain. I am so glad I read this and will be keeping an eye on books by this author.” – Sarah Coleman, Amazon review

★★★★★ “A great fantasy novella, a real page turner (it gave me goosebumps), I highly recommend it.” – Caitlin Shaw, Amazon review

25 – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – The Art of Setting Descriptions

In this fantastic YA fantasy novel, the town of Ketterdam is a living, breathing, three-dimensional creation: as much a character as any of the other (brilliant) characters in this story. Bardugo is a master of making a setting come to life. In today’s in-depth episode, I analyse a scene to extract key techniques writers can use to improve their setting descriptions.

No mourners, no funerals.
