No one had ever kept a soul from the god. Until now.

As Black Angel's population is ravaged by invisible soul-stealing demons, Svana learns that the soul she holds could be all that stands between them and total annihilation. Death god Chahr's greed for souls grows deeper by the day... and every soul taken brings the city one step closer to total extinction. Plagued by grief and guilt, and hunted by her loved one's killer, Svana sets out to save those remaining, armed only with the ashes and words in a dead artist's journal. Her crusade will take her to the heart of Chahrboga's powers and reveal the dark past that almost wiped Black Angel from the map two hundred years earlier.

Dark and gritty, but with splashes of hope, Holding the Ashes is a journey through grief, memory, and regret, and addresses the ultimate question about whether it's ever okay to let go. Fans of The Fifth Season and City of Stairs should love its tangled emotional webs, dark fantasy landscapes, and contemplations on mortality.


In a time of blood and myth, humanity used its nuclear weapons to crack the world. In the year of blinding white light which followed, gods of death and cruelty poured in through the gap and staked their claims in the post-apocalyptic frontier, fueled by the relentless smothering of human lives. Welcome to the New West. Welcome to the world you deserve.
