Age of Ash

By Daniel Abraham
Age of Ash by Daniel Abraham digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

From Hugo award-winning, and New York Times bestselling co-author of the Expanse, Daniel Abraham, Age of Ash is the first book in an epic fantasy trilogy that unfolds within the walls of a single great city where every story matters —and the fate of the city is woven from them all.

“An atmospheric and fascinating tapestry, woven with skill and patience.” – Joe Abercrombie, New York Times bestselling author of A Little Hatred

Kithamar is a center of trade and wealth, an ancient city with a long, bloody history where countless thousands live and their stories unfold.

This is Alys's.

When her brother is murdered, a petty thief from the slums of Longhill sets out to discover who killed him and why.  But the more she discovers about him, the more she learns about herself, and the truths she finds are more dangerous than knives. 

Swept up in an intrigue as deep as the roots of Kithamar, where the secrets of the lowest born can sometimes topple thrones, the story Alys chooses will have the power to change everything.

"An outstanding series debut, which instantly hooks readers with Paul mysteries . . . Readers will eagerly anticipate the sequel." – Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“I have been wanting to read this book for about 2 years now. I finally got to it and all what I can say is that it’s underwhelming. I get it, the city is big. There’s a lot of people. And everyone knows each other and everyone is hungry. If this work is truly this boring then why bother creating/writing this story? I’m not sure what the point is. What is the plot? I don’t even know what the plot is! There are two sides, good and evil. I don’t which side is good and which is evil. This book is a whole lot of nothing. I only have around 130 pages left. I should know what the plot is by now. Well, you’d think… No author should leave the plot unwritten this far into a book.”
