Description

The third book of epic conflicts and arcane intrigue in New York Times best-selling author Anthony Ryan's Draconis Memoria series.

For hundreds of years, the Ironship Trading Syndicate was fueled by drake blood - and protected by the Blood-blessed, those few who could drink it and wield fearsome powers. But now the very thing that sustained the corporate world threatens to destroy it.

A drake of unimaginable power has risen, and it commands an army of both beasts and men. Rogue Blood-blessed Claydon Torcreek, Syndicate agent Lizanne Lethridge, and Ironship captain Corrick Hilemore, spread to disparate corners of the world, must rely upon the new powers and knowledge they have gained at great price to halt its forces - or face the end of all they know.

Amazing Series Finale!

Book 1 was Great, Book 2 was Good, Book 3 is Magnificent! Where Book 2 was slow and meandering at times, The Empire of Ashes is nothing but action and gut wrenching moments that make you savor each word. Anthony Ryan does a great job of bringing the series to a tumultuous crescendo as the Dragons and Humans battle it out for the grandest prize of all, Survival. Recommend to anyone on the fence about the series and anyone that wants a book that they won't be able to stop listening to! #Audible1

Good work!

The story is well written and there are no ex machina like events. Narrator has shown considerable improvement on the quality of the narration. I did not regret the purchase.

For me personally Anthony Ryan is one of the great authors of my time. I haven’t been so completely riveted to an epic since JRR Tolkien, and Ryan’s writing style is much more succinct than Tolkien’s anyway.

Gather Your Notes Beforehand

While the reader is excellent, you’ll nonetheless want to assemble a printed list of the characters, and all relevant maps to really appreciate, nay, FOLLOW, the action. These books should bring particular pleasure to those who love both fantasy and military history.

Fantastic conclusion to a wonderful book series!

I cannot say enough good things about this book series. It is everything a Flintlock fantasy / steampunk / dieselpunk enthusiast could ever ask for. I love every minute of this audiobook and love the story arcs converging into an incredible climax. I would gladly revisit this setting with a prequel or sequel series of follow-on literature. Bravo.

Doesn’t make any sense

The author explains that the bad guys are limited to a set number of bad guys and then they are killed. Now that there are no more he kills them again... and again... and again.

Great Conclusion

A great way to end a very interesting epic in a great world. Anthony Ryan deserves more credit in this day and age. When it comes to world building, he's right up there with the best today.

A point of View

I love the reader, I can tell who's talking when and he gives a great performance.

Besides the amazing story I enjoyed hearing it through each person's perspective, rather then wondering what is going on .... I knew what each character was doing. (Or so I thought)
Listen and enjoy the ride.

There MUST be another one!

A wonderful new world! I hope it doesn't end here. The way the author pulls all the character threads together in the climax was exciting. I enjoyed these books and characters a great deal. I hope Anthony keeps this series going.

Well done. Thank you for this production.

A great conclusion to the story. Anthony did well and his story was entertaining. The one thing about this author I will mention is that his first book in the series is always my favorite.

Great Story Telling

The story drew you in, the characters were distinct and easy to connect with and the reader was one of the best I've heard. Excellent experience
