A SPARK WITHIN THE FORGE will be the second graphic novel in a three volume prequel series that will explore the pasts of beloved An Ember in the Ashes series characters.

Before they were torn asunder, Laia lived happily and quietly with her Nan, Pop, and brother Darin within the Scholar district of Martial-ruled Serra.

Meanwhile, Darin has a chance encounter with famed swordsmith Spiro Teluman that leads him down a precarious path away from his family . . . but towards hope for his people.
