IN ASHES LIE
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
Brennan has created a fascinating hidden underworld beneath London, and it's enhanced by prose that has an elegance perfect for historical fantasy. The worldbuilding is beautifully executed and rife with atmosphere. This sequel to Midnight Never Come can also be read on its own, as it takes the Onyx Court into the 17th century with more action, intrigue and romance. A map and dramatis personae are provided to help readers keep track of the many characters.
Baker Thomas Farynor banks his fire and sweeps the hearth, but while he sleeps, one spark kindles a blaze. He and his daughter Hanna escape, but the fire has the power to burn London to the ground. While the humans struggle to put out the conflagration, the fae fight another enemy -- the spirit of the fire itself. Faeries and humans will have to put aside their differences and fight together for the survival of London. (ORBIT, Jun., 464 pp., $14.99)
