Review: World of Ash by H, L. Burke
What remains when the world burns?
After decades of Elemental Invasions, the once flourishing Kingdom of Forra has been reduced to ruins. A band of survivors pulls together in one last attempt to defend their homes and families as the Elementals make a push to wipe them out completely.
Stoic Militia Captain Karvir and his ardent brother, Ketyl, lead a skeleton force against the Fiery Horde. Everything--their families, their home, their very world--hangs on their success against impossible odds. Meanwhile across the wilderness, young Brode and his pregnant stepmother flee, hoping to find safety near the sea.
As the Elementals pour through the portals, a sacrificial act gives hope for peace, but is it sustainable? Can the human race fight back from the edge of extinction? And could the key to their survival lie in a child?
Imagine that the world will be attacked by fire elements from another world and all they do is open a portal to burn all that is there to burn, including people or they make them brainless slaves. There is where this book starts in the war between humans and fire elements, Long time ago all elements came to Earth then there was balance and peace, the portals were suddenly closed and no one understood why now the fire elements have the gate keeper and are the only ones that can open or close portals.
We get to know seet Brode and his pregnant stepmother, his dad went to war and his stepmother decides they gotta go towards the sea, she thinks it will be saver.
And Militia Captain Karvir, his wife and two daughters and his brother Ketyl. The brothers will lead a group to try to get rid of the element once and for all. if the succeed? read for yourself it is so worth it.
Great book, I loved it and read it in one sit almost. hard to lay down, good amount of adventure thrilling sometimes and very strong characters, I love this book and can't wait to read next!
