[Promo] - A Darkness Forged In Fire

Book Description:

Iron Elves Book 1

In this world, Konowa Swift Dragon, former commander of the Empire's elite Iron Elves, is looked upon as anything but ordinary. He's murdered a Viceroy, been court-martialed, seen his beloved regiment disbanded, and finally been banished in disgrace to the one place he despises the most — the forest.

Now, all he wants is to be left alone with his misery...but for Konowa, nothing is ever that simple. The mysterious and alluring Visyna Tekoy, the highborn daughter of an elfkynan governor, seeks him out in the dangerous wild with a royal decree that he resume his commission as an officer in Her Majesty's Imperial Army, effective immediately.

For in the east, a falling Red Star heralds the return of a magic long vanished from the earth. Rebellion grows within the Empire as a frantic race to reach the Star unfolds. It is a chance for Konowa to redeem himself — even if the entire affair appears doomed to be a suicide mission...

and that the soldiers recruited for the task are not at all what he expects. And worse, his key adversary in the perilous race for the Star is the dreaded Shadow Monarch — a legendary elf-witch whose machinations for absolute domination spread deeperthan Konowa could ever imagine....

  1. I like the sound of this!! Thanks Anna!

  2. Oooh--- love the cover! And on top of that, the book sounds like something I'd pick up! Thanks for the info, I don't know if I would have seen it otherwise (or at least not for a while!). Definitely going on my list. ;)


  3. Hmmm, sounds good :D I'm wondering how is the romance is that one ^_^; and definitively an appealing cover.

  4. This one does sound good! I'll make note of it :).

    Are you reading it?

  5. I love the cover, but not too sure if there is romance in it.

    This is a book that Simon and Schuster sent me. But probably won't read it, so I passed it on to Michelle G to review.

  6. This sounds awesome. I haven't read a fantasy romance that's wow-ed me yet but this sounds like it could come close!

  7. From what I read of the praise and reviews, this is more a fantasy novel that an Fantasy Romance. Here's the link if you want to read what people are saying...

    I have to admit I haven't found too many Fantasy Romances I like. I have enjoyed Anne Bishop & C.L. Wilson.

    I did pick up Tammy Kane's Fantasy Romance novel Breath of Fire, it looks promising.

  8. Wow you find some unique books Anna. I'd so love to hear about it when you finish it. I"m new into straight fantasy so I love looking for what I'd like to read!

  9. First I love the cover art for this book! Even better is that it sounds really exciting! Thanks so much for the heads up on this one!

    So happy it's Book 1, too! I can't afford to buy entire backlists right now. LOL
