On the Edge of Death, the sequel to In the Company of the Dead, is approaching release date! As Ciara Ballintyne’s editor for both of these books, I’ve had the pleasure of reading them multiple times in various drafts, and I’ve enjoyed every single reading. Ballintyne is a brilliant author who writes deeply layered characters, and the series is rich with magic, revenge, torment, horrors, love and adventure.

On the Edge of Death will be available from April 22, 2017. To celebrate the upcoming release, Book 1: In the Company of the Dead (a winner of a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Best Fantasy!) is only $0.99 on e-book, so this is a perfect time to jump in. All the links you need are below!

“Some of the most notable fantasy authors create powerful reads with slower beginnings that lead up to a crescendo of gripping action – such as this story… Much like the acclaimed fantasy writer Patrick Rothfuss’s productions, In the Company of the Dead evolves slowly for the first few chapters… perfect for the fantasy fan seeking depth, who appreciates a slow build-up before the fiery action begins. Such an audience will find this perfectly fits the definition of an epic saga: sweeping, complex, and ultimately engrossing.” ~ D.Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

“Ballintyne’s deep characterizations make you feel for the people she’s created, root for their endeavors, and gasp at their tribulations… The prose is wonderfully evocative and the plot has good twists and is well-paced… an engrossing read, a good choice for fantasy fans who like a meaty storyline.” ~ Readers’ Favorite

“If you’re a fan of epic fantasy with a romantic twist along the lines of Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings, I think you’ll enjoy this book… I definitely see this as a book that the more you read it, the more you’ll glean from it. If you’re looking for a hefty, deep, complex fantasy novel, definitely check this book out.” ~ Nebula of Books
