Still together they are set to search for a holy relic to save her sister and help stop the war that is brooding.
But can they trust each other? Can Ivy trust someone that she is insanely attracted too but at the same time, knows he is holding on all the facts?
Jeaniene Frost is those authors, that if she have a new book, it's on my automatic to-read list. I LOVE her Night Huntress, Nigh Huntress World and Night Prince Series, so it's not difficult to gather that I needed to read her new Urban Fantasy novel.
Now in The Beautiful Ashes we get the witty banter that we usual get in her novels, the crazy chemistry between the leads and the action packed story line. There were some parts that it took me awhile to get into it,while other parts I just needed to know what will happen next.
And that was what was strange to me, there were parts of the story that felt somehow strange or the characters didn't have much pull to get me in too it or too keep me invested, but then something happened and I would be drawn again.
I especially enjoyed the world building, some of the descriptions of the realms were just wicked and awesome.
Overall I did enjoyed the story and it really is a good start for a series.
