  • Very Similar To From Blood and Ash

    I’m conflicted. On the one hand, I did enjoy ASITE and I will continue with the series. The same goes for FBAA. They are fun, filled with banter and action and steamy moments, and have plenty of intricate world-building. The problem is that I have read this book before. Let’s start with the good: The book has an engaging plot and has some great action scenes. The world-building, when it is clear, is detailed and fun. There are great twists, and I enjoyed the progression of Sera and Nyktos’ relationship. I found the draken to be very cool, and would love to see more of the Primal’s Court. There will be huge challenges for Sera in future books, and I can’t wait for those plot threads to continue. Now for the other stuff. There is little I can say about Sera when she is so much like Poppy. Both are feisty women who are often rash and like to stab things. Both have had challenging upbringings and struggle to find someone who loves them and not their mantle. Both are inherently good and kind and easy to relate to. Both say “I have a question” more times than I could count. Honestly, I was calling Sera “Poppy” for much of the book. Same goes for Nyktos. He and Casteel meet Sera/Poppy under false names, despite knowing much. They are both dream boats with a broody charm. They both love talking about Sera/Poppy stabbing them and are aroused by it. They would both do anything for their lady loves and are ferociously protective. It was hard to ignore the similarities or get past the repetitive banter. Truth be told, I wished Armentrout pushed for more variety. I genuinely like her work and this series, and I know that from her previous works she is capable of creating something fresh from a familiar universe. I still rated this book high because I did enjoy it and I am a fan. But it truly did feel like a copy of itself. For readers who are fresh to the series and this is their first book from it, I think they will find a solid, sexy adventure filled with banter and action. For long time fans, this will be good, but it’s okay to ask for something new.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Oh My Gosh That Was Fantastic!

    5☆ A Shadow In the Ember was crazy interesting to me and a great extension of the From Blood and Ash world. The book does have similarities to From Blood and Ash, but I felt like the story and way it flowed it were uniquely its own. Both Nyktos and Sera have really deep and complex lives and it was really interesting to see how that has impacted them now. I really enjoy their vastly complicated relationship and even with all the mountains in their way I think they make a great match. Having read all three current From Blood and Ash books I felt like this complimented it very well and offered a better insight into this world. I can't wait to see how their story unfold!

  • Amazing and spicy

    I devoured this book in a day, so so good I cannot wait for the war of two queens to come out. I love the connection of this book to the blood and ash series

  • Just so good

    Just when I though J. Armentrout couldn’t get any better, this book is true mastery.

  • A Shadow in the Ember

    Incredibly written, beautifully constructed story, strong enticing characters, and the enduring theme of love concurs all! I inhaled this book and can’t wait to breath in the next.
