'You owe it to yourself to read this!' Reader review
Fans of Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher will revel in this fiery tale of magic, mayhem and modern-day mythology.
Ben Garston has broken the Lore. Now it's time to face the music . . .
Life isn't treating Red Ben Garston well. He's lost everything he once held dear, including the love of his life. Still, at least he escaped the clutches of a malevolent spirit bent on total destruction. So there is that.
Now Ben just wants to drink, and forget, and drink some more. But he can't. Not yet.
Because someone is stirring up trouble. Someone who wants to unleash a powerful ancient magic that could bring the realm of mythology crashing into the modern world.
If Ben fails to stop them, the world will burn - and that's the last thing he needs on his conscience.

The Ben Garston novels:
Burning Ashes (coming 2018)
Bennett's inventive and vivid continuation of the tale that began with Chasing Embers focuses primarily on the struggles of Ben Garston, the human form of the last dragon left on Earth. The others along with all magical beings such as witches, trolls, giants, etc. have accepted the Sleep that let humans forget about them for centuries. But now the magic truce is failing, some humans are seeking a talisman that would let them destroy the "monsters," and Garston is beginning to suspect that he's only a pawn to Blaise Von Hart, last representative of the fay, who is capable of playing a very subtle and very long game. Readers will be swept along by the vivid writing and frequent explosions of extreme violence. This is smart action storytelling, and Bennett is assembling the materials for a terrific conclusion.
