Publisher Description

Magic is the key... but will it save them, or consume them?

To be discovered with magical potential is to be feared. The gifted few dread their future, for while a life of ease awaits those who succeed, failure leads to a much darker destiny.

For Natalia, whose magical abilities revealed themselves at an early age, there is no choice. Torn from her mother's arms, she was borne away to the Volstrum, an institution steeped in mystery. There, trained as a battle mage, she has the potential to be one of the most powerful spellcasters ever. Yet the price they demand of her is too high!

Athgar's life was shattered the day his magical potential was released by the very fire that nearly consumed him. Even while the Orcs taught him to master his new talents, he could not forget those who were savagely ripped away. Blindly driven by revenge, it's not until he meets Natalia and nearly dies again that he realizes something much more sinister is unfolding.

Now, she is on the run from her family while he desperately hunts for his! Together, they embark on a voyage to unearth a dark conspiracy that has remained secret for years.

The Frozen Flame

Book One of the Ashes series by Paul J Bennett. Loved this book it had me by the first chapter. The characters were compelling, I was rooting for them throughout the entire read. The story painted was vivid and exciting enough to make me want to keep reading even when a tired old man was exhausted from the day’s activities. I am looking forward to the next book. Thank you Mr. Barrett for your thoughts, time and imagination.

Sincerely, J.W. Harris Jr.

Out of the park!

Loved the new series opener. Great new characters and in another part of the same world. I wonder if the two story lines will eventually meet. It was over too soon. I am ready for more.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, and asked to read this book prior to the prequel. I would recommend reading the prequel first.
