Publisher's Summary

Armies will clash and ancient secrets will be revealed in The Empire of Ashes, the thrilling conclusion to Anthony Ryan's Draconis Memoria series.

The White Drake's army has cut a bloody swathe across the world, leaving nothing but ash in its wake. Thousands of innocents have died beneath its blades, and countless more will surely follow.

Only small-time criminal Claydon Torcreek and master spy Lizanne Lethridge - along with their ragtag band of allies - stand between the White Drake's fury and the world's end.

To save the future, they must delve into the past - and unravel a timeless mystery that might just turn the tide once and for all.

Not quite what I was hoping for

Unlike the last trilogy, I found Anthony Ryan spending far too much time on dull plot lines and elements that made no sense.

I also cannot understand the switch from Steven Brand who I think is excellent. I see there were plenty who agreed with the change so maybe I am in the minority but I thought he was excellent.

A Spoiler alert here so I will seem a bit of space for you:










The endless quest to finally get the blacks to agree to join, to then see the thousands drop to 50 to then 1. What on earth was the point. What a complete waste of time. I simply do not get it.

I found myself wanting to skip forward.

The magic element was great and Anthony Ryan is truly a great author but I think there were some big plot holes in this one.

Brilliant

A brilliant conclusion to the trilogy. I can't wait for A. Ryan"s next set of novels.
