In a world of magic where death rules, twin necromancers who share one body may be its only salvation.


The world of Nirus is full of sorcerers who can conjure fire, move stone, summon poisons... and resurrect the dead. Each of these gifted few are usually born with a single elemental Hallows. Rarely, some are born with two. And only those of royal blood possess three.


But for twins Xavier and Alexander, never before has the world seen an element split into two halves. Born with Death Hallows, Alexander is only able to raise decaying corpses, while Xavier stitches their souls to their deceased body... with consent from the ghosts he befriends, of course. Separately, the brothers are considered crippled in the magic community, but together they can achieve feats that no necromancer could dream of.


Or they would have, if Xavier's soul hadn't been ripped from his body before his time... and ended up trapped inside his twin.


Now the race to return to normal is on! The twins must find Xavier's missing body, hopefully alive, before the Princess of Death finds out and tells her father of their illegal coexistence.


What they didn't expect was to discover the fate of the world may depend on it!



"One of the most fascinating universes I have ever encountered... rich, mysterious, inviting, and frightening at the same time. You will want to visit it again and again." --Readers' Favorite Review

About the author

Ellie Raine is a lover of epic quests in all things--namely books and video games. The NecroSeam Chronicles was originally intended to be a video game series, but after she went to the Art Institute of Atlanta to make that dream happen, she made the mistake of taking a creative writing class from which there was no return.

Now, when she's not adventuring in her dreams, Ellie Raine is conjuring fantastical quests of scythes, sorcery and battle-clad wonder. She has written four books so far in her ongoing Epic Fantasy series including a prequel novella. Now she writes like mad at home with her wonderful husband, their two cats, and their darling daughter, the Dragon Princess Felicity.

Exciting new sequel to "Willow of Ashes"!  A dark force threatens the world of Nirus. Prophecy says only the ShadowBlood can stop it.  But who is this legendary hero? And will he be found in time?

When the false King of Everland declares war on the Reapers, Knights of the Death Realm are forced to fight against living souls in a double-war with both undead necrofera demons and Everland armies. Caught in the middle are twin necromancers with an unusual condition...they share one body.

Xavier longs to be normal again, especially since he is now reunited with his fiance, Willow. When new information emerges about the possible location of his missing body, Xavier is thrilled.  Now he just has to figure out how to put his soul back.  And the Dream realm relic, the Orbs of Azure, may be the key.

But their quest takes a detour when their comrades are taken captive. The twins, now fully knighted reapers, join the Death princess on a dangerous rescue mission to free their friends from an impenetrable fortress, and discover unique magic abilities never seen before in the history of Nirus.  During the treacherous journey, the reapers run into unexpected royal allies of different realms, all of whom are searching for the "ShadowBlood," someone who looks just like the twins... if they had been born as one.

A unique and original story of brotherhood, mystery, and unexplored experiences, the NecroSeam Chronicles takes readers on a thrilling adventure they won't soon forget!

Dark magic, heroic Knights of Death, and a daring adventure to save the world!

"One of the most fascinating universes I have ever encountered." --Readers' Favorite Review
"A brilliantly scripted and entertainingly original fantasy saga." --Midwest Book Review

Born of two realms, Dream and Death, Princess Willow Ember is the first royal Relicblood who can wield six unique forms of magic. But what good are her powers when she can’t even use them to save the one she loves. On the night of her betrothal to an apprentice reaper named Xavier, a vengeful sorcerer threw the young necromancer into the ocean and left him to die. Yet even Willow did not suspect the truth.

That Xavier's soul was ripped from his body... and trapped inside his twin brother.

The coexisting brothers embark on a daring journey in search of Xavier's missing body, venturing into a world they had only read about in books. What started as an exciting adventure of hope turns into a frightening nightmare. For they never expected to uncover an infestation of undead beasts and bone-crunching dragons, nor did they expect to run across someone from their past... a woman Reaper with fire magic who uses her unmatched skills with the scythe to help the twins fight off hordes of soul-eating monsters lead by and an ancient sorceress queen.

A queen who has amassed an army of undead necrofera, preparing to wage a demon war against the living.

And it's up to the apprentice Reapers to stop her!

The NecroSeam Chronicles takes the classic lore of the Grim Reaper and braids it into a thrilling adventure full of whimsy, wonder, and just a dash of horror. This special boxed set collection contains the first three books in the series: Willow of Ashes (Book 1), Orbs of Azure (Book 2), and Pearl of Emerald (Book 3).

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

Praise for Fire & Blood

“I love it so much. Fire & Blood is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but Fire & Blood flies.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.” —The Sunday Times

“The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”—The Guardian
