Product Details


“Dark, brutal, bloody–and incredibly compelling, with brilliant worldbuilding and a romance that gripped my emotions. Milla Vane has created something extraordinary in this story of kings and war, gods and vengeance.”—New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh

“An engrossing, epic story of warriors, gods, leaders and lovers…The characters walk through the pages with heart, soul and courage, and are matched by Vane’s equally stellar world building, which weaves seamlessly with thrilling action scenes.”—BookPage (starred review)

“[A] richly imagined dark fantasy world.”—Publishers Weekly

“This stalemate between vengeance and love permeates their every interaction, which Vane fearlessly explores through masterful plotting and characterization. Imaginative worldbuilding and compelling political intrigue add depth and complexity to their passionate and wildly romantic love affair. A showstopper.”—Kirkus Reviews

A Heart of Blood and Ashes is an engrossing tale of barbarity and treachery, of devotion and loyalty, and ultimately of love. Milla Vane knocks it out of the park with the savagely delightful A Heart of Blood and Ashes. Now I find myself desperate to get my hands on the next book in the series.”—Fresh Fiction

“A gorgeous imaginative book which is brimming with amazing details and colour…It is harsh, unrelenting, dark, and violent, with a lush romance at its heart.”—The Book Pushers
“Dark, brutal, bloody-with splendid worldbuilding, one is taken from the stressful, mundane reality into a world that will have you not stopping until the last page.”—I Smell Sheep

“Vivid action scenes pair with harrowing emotional vulnerability to launch a new, addictive series.”—Amazon Book Review
