Kingdom of Ashes by Elena May Book Summary:
"Utterly alluring and remarkable!" ~ The Genre Minx, https://thegenreminx.com/ "Mixing the post-apocalyptic with the medieval, describing with vivid (and sometimes morbid) details a blood culture that creeped you out but also fascinated you, [Elena May] managed to capture your attention, to drive you insane with the desire to sink your teeth into this disturbingly delicious book that was not coloured in black and white, but in every shade of grey you can imagine." ~ BookNest, booknest.eu "It was hard to believe this was Elena May's first published novel. Her style was very appealing; I couldn't put the book down." ~ Magic of Books, https://maginibooks.wordpress.com/ ~*~ Myra never witnessed the Nightfall. She has only heard stories from the eldest among them; tales of the Old World and of the scientists who invented the WeatherWizard-a technological innovation that controls the weather. Unfortunately, the device also gave an ambitious vampire prince the means to cover the world in impenetrable clouds, allowing his armies to crawl out of their caves and conquer all. Vampires rule over the New World, breeding humans for food. After fifty years of guerrilla warfare, the Resistance is fading, its supplies dwindling. They must rally and succeed-and soon-or all hope of restoring human civilization will be lost. When Myra goes on a desperate mission to help the Resistance, she ends up a captive in the vampires' palace. With time running out, she must find a way to stop Prince Vladimir, and every wrong step leads to the death of innocents. Her battle abilities prove useless, but Myra discovers she has another skill that can give her an edge over her captors. Now, Myra must defeat the vampire leader at a power game he has been playing for almost two millennia.
