Happy First Day of May Everyone!
I hope you are all hanging in there, and going on so many adventures with reading! Today I bring you a book full of twists, turns, forbidden love, Vampires, and other supernatural creatures. From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout, had me on the edge of my seat to see how it all ends, and this is only book one in her new series!
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa.
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.”
When I tell you I love this author and knew nothing about this book until I started looking to see when another book of hers was coming out, and started seeing people talk about it, I freaked out! I knew immediately that I had to read this book, so I went to Amazon, and once it was delivered and I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down! Jennifer is one of my favorite authors, and what I really love about her is she can create a story in any genre and make me instantly fall in love with it!
Jennifer has the ability to take the reader into her creative world and make you get so lost in the book that you experience everything like you are right there with the characters. I love authors that can do this, because they are the one’s to look out for. In my opinion, anything Jennifer sets out to right will be gold for me! I have been a fan of hers for years now, and look forward to seeing what her brilliant mind comes up with. If you love forbidden love, bombs you don’t see coming, sexy men, vampires and supernatural creatures, than you need to read this book as soon as possible!
Go on a journey as Poppy tries to figure out her true place in her world without losing her life!
