FROM THE ASHES, a novella set in the Sojourner Saga.

Five hundred years before the rise of The Great Deliverer (Once We Were Kings: Book I of the Sojourner Saga), before the founding of the Sojourner Union, Ying, a young peasant fights for the hand of the beautiful princess of Bai Kuo. He finds his destiny amidst betrayal, treachery, timeless love and sacrifice, and sets into motion a watershed moment in history.

Includes free sample chapters from the multiple award-winning #1 Bestseller: Once We Were Kings: Book I of the Sojourner Saga.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Ian Alexander (award-winning author,Joshua Graham) has deepened the lore and history of the story he began in “Once We Were Kings” by providing us with a prequel set 500 years before the events of that book. This NOVELLA helps readers of the first book in the Sojourner Series understand the importance of the events and references at the beginning of that novel. Told with his usual wit, grace, and flowing prose, Alexander (Graham)pulls his readers in with the first paragraph. These are characters we care about and want to know better. I, for one, hope he keeps deepening the history of this lovely world he has created.


As is the norm for Joshua Graham, FROM THE ASHES begins with a bang, drags you at a running clip through the story and then leaves you breathless in that “Oh. My. Goodness!”-moment that he does so well with his climax. A must-read. You don’t want to miss this one.


With this story, Ian Alexander allows the reader to gain a deeper and broader understanding of the world that encompasses the epic fantasy, Once We Were Kings. The stylized narration of this story, the divine prophecies, the magic channeled by acts of faith and will should please readers who enjoyed OWWK. And if you haven’t yet delved into Ian’s epic tale, take heart: a sample is included here for your enjoyment.
