First I want to say Thank You to all my followers. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to read my blog.
Today’s #Friday Review is From Blood and Ash by Jennifer Armentrout. This book reminded me why I don’t like to start reading a series book if only the first book is out. Cause now I’ve got to wait and who knows how long that’s going to be.
Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.
The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.
Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.
From Blood and Ash is a gripping, suspenseful read that you cannot get enough of.
I started reading and got so enthralled in the world of mortals, Ascended, Cravens and Atlantians that I lost track of time. The book is so captivating and the way Jennifer builds and develops each character and the world in they live in makes the pages of the book turn effortlessly.
Hawke and Poppy’s dialogue is fun, charming and sexy. Hawke is strong willed, courageous, sexy, has a edge of darkness and mystery to him. There is more to him than what meets the eye.
Poppy finds herself in a predicament that she truly wishes she was not in. She struggles with her decisions and do things that people may feel is unbecoming of her position. She is more to her than anyone realizes.
Overall From Blood and Ash is a mystical world that is action-packed, suspenseful, erratic, spell-binding page-turner you will enjoy.
