Cover Reveal + #Giveaway: Memories of Ash (The Sunbolt Chronicles #2) by Intisar Khanani @BooksByIntisar @yaboundtourspr

Memories of Ash (The Sunbolt Chronicles #2)
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: May 30th 2016


In the year since she cast her sunbolt, Hitomi has recovered only a handful of memories. But the truths of the past have a tendency to come calling, and an isolated mountain fastness can offer only so much shelter. When the High Council of Mages summons Brigit Stormwind to stand trial for treason, Hitomi knows her mentor won’t return—not with Arch Mage Blackflame behind the charges.

Armed only with her magic and her wits, Hitomi vows to free her mentor from unjust imprisonment. She must traverse spell-cursed lands and barren deserts, facing powerful ancient enchantments and navigating bitter enmities, as she races to reach the High Council. There, she reunites with old friends, planning a rescue equal parts magic and trickery.

If she succeeds, Hitomi will be hunted the rest of her life. If she fails, she’ll face the ultimate punishment: enslavement to the High Council, her magic slowly drained until she dies.


“It needs a meal,” the mage says, “And it won’t be me.” He yanks me off balance. I cry out, jerking back on my arm and lashing out with my glowstone. I manage to smack him hard across the face, but then his boots come between mine, and for a sickening moment I teeter on the edge of the stairs.

Get back!

I barely register the words ringing in my mind before the mage releases my arm and shoves me, hard. I swallow my scream, throwing my arms up to shield my head as I fall. I slam down on the stairs, bouncing toward the mass of tentacles.

Feet first—get your feet first!

I follow the shouted advice mindlessly, twisting my body as I reach the talons embedded in the stone, my feet slowing me until I come to a stop among a mass of three or four great tentacles. I lie still, trying to slow my breathing, trying not to give in to panic and flail and scream my way back up the stairs.

Someone is talking in my head. And it’s not me. Somehow, that is almost worse than lying surrounded by the talons of a tentacled monster.

About the Author
Intisar Khanani grew up a nomad and world traveler. Born in Wisconsin, she has lived in five different states as well as in Jeddah on the coast of the Red Sea. She first remembers seeing snow on a wintry street in Zurich, Switzerland, and vaguely recollects having breakfast with the orangutans at the Singapore Zoo when she was five. She currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband and two young daughters. Until recently, Intisar wrote grants and developed projects to address community health with the Cincinnati Health Department, which was as close as she could get to saving the world. Now she focuses her time on her two passions: raising her family and writing fantasy. Intisar's next two projects include a companion trilogy to Thorn, following the heroine introduced in her short story The Bone Knife, and The Sunbolt Chronicles, a novella serial following a young mage with a propensity to play hero, and her nemesis, a dark mage intent on taking over the Eleven Kingdoms.
