Long ago, a magical war destroyed an empire, and a new one was built in its ashes. But still the old grudges simmer, and two siblings will fight on opposite sides to save their world.

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

Long ago, a magical war destroyed the Chosen Empire, and a new republic rose from its ashes. But old grudges still simmer...

Gyre hasn't seen his beloved sister since their parents sold her to the mysterious Twilight Order. Now, twelve years after her disappearance, Gyre's sole focus is revenge, and he's willing to risk anything and anyone to claim enough power to destroy the Order. Chasing rumors of a fabled city protecting a powerful artifact, Gyre comes face-to-face with his lost sister. But she isn't who she once was. Trained to be a warrior, Maya wields magic for the Twilight Order's cause. Standing on opposite sides of a looming civil war, the two siblings will learn that not even the ties of blood will keep them from splitting the world in two.

Reviews for Ashes of the Sun (#1 Burningblade & Silvereye)

'Wexler demonstrates a talent for worldbuilding in the impressive post-apocalyptic fantasy that launches his Burningblade and Silvereye trilogy' Publishers Weekly. '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'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. 'A high-octane, dystopian fantasy thrill-ride ... Scintillating ... Unpredictable and shocking too. Highly recommended' Grimdark Magazine. 'Exciting. Immersive. Epic. A perfect page turner and a phenomenal start to a new series' Peter Clines, author of The Fold and Ex-Heroes. 'Gorgeous writing, powerfully drawn characters, and an exciting storyline!' K.D. Edwards, author of The Last Sun and The Hanged Man. 'Ashes of the Sun shows that Wexler is a master of high fantasy. His plotting and this post-apocalyptic setting will warp your mind!' S.M. Stirling, NYT bestselling author. '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. '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.
