The darkness is rising... and someone better be there to stop it.

When Angel, a.k.a. Death, the Horseman of the Apocalypse, goes missing, Zane Burns and his friends are the only ones willing to risk bringing the Four back together. Not that sitting down for coffee with the three other Horsemen is the best idea in the world, but needs must, as they say.

With the veil growing weaker by the day, the world is lingering at the edge of destruction. And if that is not enough, powerful magical organizations that are supposed to support Zane and fight on the side of light, now work against him.

With the doomsday clock ticking, and with his former allies turned enemies, Zane must use whatever resources he has, crossing lines he has never crossed before. In the end, he is the Great Fire Salamander, the protector of the human realm. He must do whatever has to be done... whether he can survive it or not.

If you like a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat Urban Fantasy adventure with dynamic characters, intense action, and breathtaking suspense, then you'll love the fifth book in The Fire Salamander Series.

What Readers Are Saying...


"The craftsmanship on display here is second to none. Thorn has a knack for creating atmosphere, adding just enough detail to draw you into the fascinating world she has created, leaving you riveted and hanging on every word. The opening sequence, for instance, was wonderful, and from a historical perspective, felt very authentic. I could imagine being back in that time, feeling the atmosphere and being in that environment. It takes talent to draw a reader in in this way, and N.M. Thorn has it in spades."

~ Amazon / Goodreads Reviewer


"Where to start? This book had me tied in knots, crying, swearing, cursing and laughing in equal measures...

The story pulls you in from the opening line and will hold you in a tight grip till the very end. It’s a cover to cover kind of read and I’m already eagerly awaiting the next one."

~ Amazon / Goodreads Reviewer


"N.M. Thorn makes all the characters in the book extremely relatable – small jokes, constant “sibling” bickering, making fun of each other bring them to life. I see them as regular humans under normal conditions, until they start their supernatural stuff, and that makes the book a great reading. It is full of intrigue and it gives so many hints that something great should follow; now, where is the Book 6."
