New From Author V.S. Holmes — Smoke and Rain

smoke and rainSmoke and Rain from V.S. Holmes

What happens when heroes are as broken as the world they must reforge?

A mad king’s genocide destroyed Alea’s home and left her sanity in tatters. Caught in the crossfire between the gods and their creators, Alea realizes the darkness inside her is the only thing that can end the bloodshed. Across enemy lines, bastard lieutenant Brentemir Barrackborn is horrified by the blood on his hands. He must choose between the gods he worships and newfound family if he has any hope of redemption—or surviving the war.

Winner of New Apple Literary’s 2015 Excellence in Independent Publishing Award

Holmes’s writing style is somehow both lyrical and direct, and I was impressed with her patient attention to detail. If you’re looking for a fantasy series to invest yourself in, this is it!” – Page Morgan, author of The Dispossessed “

Holmes didn’t disappoint with dropping tidbits of emotion, character growth, and internal struggle among all the action and war-time maneuvers.” – Kathrin Hutson, international bestselling author of Sleepwater Beat
