It’s that time again, kids.
Here’s a quick rundown of each character and a snapshot of who, if Steve ran Hollywood, would be starring in Crown of Ash, Book 4 of the BLOOD SKIES saga.
Eric starts Book 4 trapped in the shadowy wastelands called the Whisperlands. Already harrowed by his time-displaced imprisonment in the ruins of Shadowmere, Cross now has to battle the odds and confront the Shadow Lords if he ever wants to earn his freedom.
Played by James McAvoy
With Eric out of commission, it’s up to Danica to get the remaining members of the team back home. That won’t be easy with her old allies the Revengers — corrupt wardens from Black Scar prison — actively hunting her down!
Played by Milla Jovovich
While Danica deals with her own problems, leading the team temporarily falls on unlikely shoulders: Kane, the wise-cracking, heartbroken former gladiator who’d much rather go drinking than face the horrors at Voth Ra’morg.
Played by Ryan Reynolds
The scarred and deadly swordsman remains something of an enigma, but Ronan’s loyalty to his team and skills in combat are needed more than ever when the team goes up against the Ebon Cities.
Played by Michael Fassbender

Played by Peter Dinklage

The local crimelord in Blacksand, Vago is a thoroughly unappealing man who manipulates Cross’s team into doing his dirty work in exchange for promises of returning them home.
Played by Michael Chiklis
The leader of the Revengers is a cold, merciless killer who has no qualms about sacrificing anyone and everyone to achieve his goal — increasing Black Sca’s power through an unholy alliance with the undead of Koth!
Played by Damian Lewis
Rake’s number one enforcer is a Fade, a woman capable of nullifying a mage’s spirit. She’s also a sadistic assassin.
