Lands of Ash by H.L. Burke

Lands of Ash


I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.


Ketyl is out on a scouting mission. Fire portals are popping up all over the forest. Ketyl ends up figuring out where all the portals are heading since they are in a straight line. They are heading towards a place called Fork Vale Fortress. What Ketyl can’t figure out is how they know about the fortress. A charred, a minion for the fire elementals, ends up showing up near Ketyl and he kills it.

He heads back towards his camp where his brother Karvir is. He hopes to be able to warn the fortress of the impending attack so they can prepare. Everyone at the fortress has known loss in one way, shape or form. They are all willing to fight until the end. Karvir and Ketyl lead a small army to try and stop the elementals from reaching the fortress.

The characters in this book are ones that you are immediately inclined to like or dislike. There really is no in-between with these characters. It’s either love or hate. You are rooting for the characters through everything and hoping they will win or at least get out alive.


This post-apocalyptic book is an awesome read. I was drawn in from the first chapter until the last. The thing that really caught my eye was the cover. It captivated me and then reading the book made me entranced in the pages. I read this book in one sitting, forgoing sleep in order to finish it. This book is THAT good!
