Shadow and Flame, the fourth and final Ascendant Kingdoms novel, is now in stores and online! Not only that, but Orbit and I have some killer special deals with special low launch prices and great extras!
Here’s the scoop:
Blaine McFadden and his allies have brought magic back under mortal command and begun to restore order to the beleaguered kingdom of Donderath. Now, new perils and old enemies gather for a final reckoning. Foreign invaders, a legendary dark mage and vengeful immortals fight Blaine’s battered forces for control of the continent, and Blaine’s weary army is the only thing standing between a kingdom struggling to rise from the ashes and a descent into fury and darkness.
So here’s what’s REALLY cool! Right now, the paperback copy of Shadow and Flame is just $10.24 (save $5.75) on Amazon! AND Orbit has done a price drop on ALL of the Ascendant Kingdoms books for a limited time—Ice Forged, Reign of Ash and War of Shadows are just $4.99 on Kindle (save $5 on each)! That makes is really easy to catch up on your reading or binge-read the series. Grab them quick!
And to sweeten the deal a little more, if you buy Shadow and Flame (ebook or paper) before 3/31, you get Arctic Prison (a Blaine McFadden prequel novella) free! (That’s a $2.99 value!) Need to catch up on the series? Buy 2 or more Ascendant Kingdoms novels (any format) by 3/31, and get King’s Convicts (three Blaine McFadden prequel novellas) free! (That’s a $9.99 value!)

Here’s what they’re saying about Shadow and Flame!
“The perfect conclusion to a truly epic tale.” — Michael J. Sullivan, author of the Riyria novels.
“Gail Z. Martin is the one of the finest storytellers writing today. Her fascinating characters and mastery of atmospherics gives readers stories that have to be savored. Her characters display the sort of quick wit and heart that make them a joy to follow through their adventures.”
–Michael A. Stackpole, New York Times Bestselling author of I, Jedi and Rogue Squadron
“A flawless finale that does not disappoint.” — RT Book Reviews
