I HATE it when an in­ter­est­ing story is left hang­ing be­cause you have to wait for the next in­stal­ment.

Flame­caster tells the tale of des­ti­tute prince Adrian sul’Han, bet­ter known as Ash, and Jenny Ban­de­low, a girl with a mys­te­ri­ous mark on her neck, who band to­gether to fight a ruth­less king.

The son of the Queen of Fells, Ash goes into hid­ing af­ter his fa­ther is killed in front of him. The queen­dom is in chaos and Ash, a trained healer with a pow­er­ful gift of magic, has a thirst to avenge his fa­ther against the man re­spon­si­ble, the King of Arden.

Mean­while, af­ter see­ing her best friends killed in cold blood, Jenny has be­come a sabo­teur against the King of Arden. She learns that there’s a re­lent­less search for a girl with a mark like hers, and strug­gles to avoid cap­ture.

Fate throws Ash and Jenna to­gether, and they forge a bond through their ha­tred of the king. Set in the world of the Seven Realms se­ries, Flame­caster can stand on its own even if you are not fa­mil­iar with the pre­vi­ous books, and takes the reader on a mag­i­cal jour­ney of dark magic, mys­ti­cal crea­tures, not to men­tion mys­tery, ro­mance and ac­tion.

It’s an ab­sorb­ing tale that makes you want more. Un­for­tu­nately, you’ll just have to wait un­til the au­thor is ready to re­lease the next book. – K.K. Wong
