Spotlight: The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge [Blog Tour]


I’m starting off May with a blogtour as well. After almost a year, I have joined the TheWriteReads gang for The Carnival of Ash tour.

This is a spotlight post, so I won’t hold y’all for long. After listening to many readers’ opinions on this book, this book sounds like a complex and intriguing book. I feel bad for not opting for reviewing it though.

Please feel free to check out others posts by following the hashtags #TheCarnivalOfAsh and #TheWriteReads on Twitter.

Thanks to TheWriteReads Tours for giving me a chance to be part of this tour!

paGES: 528

Cadenza is the City of Words, a city run by poets, its skyline dominated by the steepled towers of its libraries, its heart beating to the stamp and thrum of the printing presses in the Printing Quarter.

Carlo Mazzoni, a young wordsmith arrives at the city gates intent on making his name as the bells ring out with the news of the death of the city’s poet-leader. Instead, he finds himself embroiled with the intrigues of a city in turmoil, the looming prospect of war with their rival Venice ever-present. A war that threatens not only to destroy Cadenza but remove it from history altogether…



Tom Beckerlegge grew up in the northwest of England in a house filled with books. Writing as Tom Becker, he won the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize with his debut novel; The Carnival of Ash is his first adult book. He lives in Enfield with his wife and young son.
