Product Details


Praise for The Empire of Ashes

“Ryan skillfully navigates multiple narrators to unveil a world steeped in magic and on the brink of destruction. Both the characters and the setting are irresistible right through to the end.”—Publishers Weekly

“The series is action packed, full of intrigue, and just plain fun. Ryan deftly writes something for fans of dragons, steampunk, or gutsy characters (or all three). Readers of epic adventure fantasies like Game of Thrones should check this series out.”—Booklist

Praise for The Draconis Memoria series

The Waking Fire is part Indiana Jones, part Pirates of the Caribbean and part Mistborn. It’s got wonderful, memorable characters and great action…I loved it.”—Django Wexler, author of The Infernal

“A marvellous piece of imagination with plenty of twists, a refreshingly different setting and excellent world-building. A great read.”—Mark Lawrence, international bestselling author of Grey Sister

“I am barely able to contain my excitement for the next installment in the series, and continue to be impressed by Ryan’s growth as an author with each of his novels . . . Dragons, great characters and a fast-paced but intricate story.”—The Quill to Live

“Always impeccable, Anthony Ryan’s world-building skills do not fail to amaze. In the Draconis Memoria series, he completely immerses his readers in a steampunk-esque world where the struggle for survival is palpable.”—The Qwillery
