Book Description

Lathah has fallen.

Arrin leads a weary group of survivors from the ruins. He presses on in search of O'hra to take the fight to the Grol, but as he nears the Sha'ree homeland, an unexpected adversary bars the way.

With enemies massing on all sides, Arrin is forced to take his search deep inside the Funeral Sands. The survivors suffer the terrors of the desert as their lives and hopes dwindle by the moment. As the losses mount, Arrin wonders if the price of saving Ahreele might be more than he can bear.

More About the Author

Raised on a diet of Heavy Metal and bad intentions, Tim Marquitz has always been interested in writing, but it wasn't until about 1995 the urge became a compulsion. However, it would be many years later before the ability matched the interest. Fortunately, the two have reconciled...mostly.

Writing a mix of the dark perverse, the horrific, and the tragic, tinged with sarcasm and biting humor, he looks to leave a gaping wound in the memories of his readers.

A former grave digger, bouncer, and dedicated metalhead, Tim is a huge fan of Mixed Martial Arts, and fighting in general. Involved in the Live Action Role Playing organization, Amtgard, since he was fifteen, he derives great pleasure from bashing people into submission.

He lives in Texas with his beautiful wife and daughter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 29 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fab story line you cannot put it down, it keeps you interested. It must be a small world though that's all I can say with a capital and then the country is defeated. Bit strange that. The author could of definitely made more of his world in that respect and made it a bit more of an epic.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting better 8 Aug. 2013
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
I think a fair criticism of "Embers of an Age" comes from Sylvain Martel ( Sylvain comments on the way the various nations must be squashed together as the time from one to the other takes such a short while. I had the same thought while reading but had forgotten that disturbance as I was paying more attention to the characters themselves. It is true. The pace at which these characters must travel is immense.

My favorite character continues to be Arrin. He is so obviously a tragic hero who happens to be part of a story that seems to have very few happy endings. With all of the blood and gore Marquitz places us in it is difficult to imagine any of the characters having a Disney ending to their story - Arrin least of all.

Next to Arrin come Zalee and Uthul (the Sha'ree). Zalee and Uthul are daughter and father. Both are subject to the strange illness that comes with using magic contained in the O'hra but still choose to do so. Coming out from their homeland has brought home to them exactly what the Sha'ree have missed by absenting themselves for so long. I sometimes see that in my own life. Because I am fortunate in so many aspects of my life it is sometimes tempting to stick my head in the sand and become blind to the lives of other people. Maybe that is why I like Uthul and Zalee so much. They have chosen to raise their heads and see.

Sultae is my final favorite. She is obviously out to get revenge for how she has been wronged and she has become insane with that need and her understandable hatred. I get that feeling as well. Sometimes I have felt it myself and sometimes I have had friends and acquaintances who have wanted to destroy those who have wronged them so badly.

Book 2 picks up where the first left off an moves at an even faster pace. Well written with a few twists thrown in to keep the reader guessing, it's well worth the read.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy fantasy, especially that similar to the Lord of the Rings, you will enjoy this book as it is both very creative conceptually, but also uses vivid detail that allows the reader to quite clearly picture the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non stop 28 July 2012
By Spud - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This second book in the blood war trilogy is every bit as good as the first.
It has nonstop action, with Arrin facing ever increasing seemingly insurmountable odds.
The book is like a series of battles and conflicts and never slows.
The biggest problem is its part of a trilogy and the third hasn't been written yet. Common, Tim, hurry up with the next book.
If you like this try `George and Dewi.'

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best trilogies! 15 Sept. 2013
By Predator51 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each and every book in this trilogy is terrific! It's like one huge book cut into three sections. There's plenty of exciting action throughout the book with lots of battles between good and evil. Read one and you'll be hooked!
