Desperate to delay an impending attack by the indigenous people of Xidda, Tau and his queen craft a dangerous plan. If Tau succeeds, the queen will have the time she needs to assemble her forces and launch an all-out assault on her own capital city, where her sister is being propped up as the ‘true’ Queen of the Omehi.

If the city can be taken, if Tsiora can reclaim her throne and reunite her people, then the Omehi might have a chance to survive the coming onslaught.

Trigger & Content Warnings:

  • Graphic violence
  • Depictions of death, loss, and grief
  • Depictions of PTSD and other mental health issues
  • Depictions of suicide/suicidal behavior
  • Depictions of chronic pain/suffering

About the Author

Born in England to South American parents, Evan Winter was raised in Africa near the historical territory of his Xhosa ancestors. Evan has always loved fantasy novels, but when his son was born, he realised that there weren’t many epic fantasy novels featuring characters who looked like him. So, before he ran out of time, he started writing them.

About the Tour

The tour for The Fires of Vengeance accommodates both book bloggers and booktubers. It is open to both US-based and international creators, with priority being given to those who identify as Black and/or West African. Its official hashtag is #TheBurningTour.

The tour will run from November 2nd to November 6th, which is the week prior to the book’s release. Reviews are required for this tour, regardless of platform. However, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.

Both print ARCs and digital galleys of The Fires of Vengeance will be distributed among all tour hosts, regardless of where they are based. For those who haven’t read the first book yet, digital galleys of The Rage of Dragons can also be provided upon request.

All tour hosts are required to provide their NetGalley email addresses. This will serve as a precaution for shipping delays, missing packages, among other issues outside our control. Hence, you must have a NetGalley account to participate.

Sign-ups will close within next week, and the selected tour hosts will be contacted via email. The CBT Twitter account will announce once the confirmation emails have been sent out.

For other concerns or inquiries, you are more than welcome to leave a comment!
