If you're a huge fan of paranormal romance books and
haven't heard of Jeaniene
Frost you don't know what you've been missing!! Jeaniene
Frost drew her readers in
with her vampiric stories but will win your heart with THE
BEAUTIFUL ASHES, the
first book in her new Broken Destiny series. I'll
admit when I first saw the book I
was a little leery, there are so many stories out there
about angels and demons
and most of them leave readers wanting.
I was not disappointed!! From page one I was hooked by the
story of a young
naive girl, Ivy that wanted nothing more then to find her
missing sister and morn
the death of her parents. But within minutes her whole
world changes as she
realizes that something supernatural is a foot and somehow
she's connected. If
that's not enough the gorgeous Adrian shows up to save her
life only to kidnap
her right after. He says he wants to help her but cant she
In a way this book reminded me of Supernatural but with a
fresh new twist, for
those out who are hooked to the show you will absolutely
love this book. This
story had demons and angels and everything in between but
it also dealt with
people. Not characters or heroes that are perfect but real
life people that make
mistakes and are sometimes ruled by jealousy and anger. I
think that is what
endeared this story to me, the emotions and personalities
that Frost created for
these characters is so rich that I could easily see this
book moving to the big
screen **hint hint**.
Of course between the cross country road trips and deadly
battles there is an
indescribable connection between the two main characters
Ivy and Adrian.
Despite whats going on around them and their better
judgement they can't help
but fall in love with each other... even if it could mean
life or death for one of
them. I don't want to give anything away but if you take
the chance with this
story you wont be disappointed.
THE BEAUTIFUL ASHES will have you on the edge of your seat
Adrian take on an impossible mission to save Ivy's sister
from a horrific fate...
and maybe fall in love in the process.
In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping
Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions
of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister
goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her
hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a
parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the
dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy
to betray her.
Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him,
but that doesn't mean he can change his fate-no matter how
strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for
the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian
knows what Ivy doesn't: that every step brings Ivy closer to
the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom
the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and
Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between.
