𝘼𝙣 𝙪𝙣𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙪𝙧𝙚 What’s a book you weren’t expecting to love, but that absolutely stole your heart? For me, the answer could honestly be the whole From Blood and Ash series. However, in particular the latest instalment; A Shadow in the Ember. Is the series perfect? No. Are there things that could be improved? Definitely. Sometimes I honestly feel like I need a cheat sheet to help me keep up with the plot and all the terms used for different things. (Still confused between Gods, Godlings etc 😫) But none of that mattered to me in the end as I had such a blast reading this series. When I picked up A Shadow in the Ember my first thought was one of anger that it wasn’t the fourth book in the series instead. ‘A prequel?! Who wants to read that? If it’s not about Poppy and Hawke then surely it can’t be any good.’ How incredibly wrong was I?!? Here’s why 🥀Sera is very similar to Poppy but I didn’t mind at all because I love Poppy! To me Sera actually seems way more reckless and mouthy than her. 🥀 In a previous book Nyktos actually says to Poppy that she reminds him a lot of Sera and now we get to see why 🥀Nyktos is also a great MC. Step aside Hawke. 🥀I loved his scenes in the other books and immediately went and reread them after finishing this book. 🥀He calls her Liessa! 😭 I died just a little at that bit. 🥀Great banter and snark which JLA does oh so well. 🥀Great side characters: Nektas, Jadis, Reaver-butt! 🥀Baby Draken alone bumped this book up several points for me 🥰 🥀Another great cover 🥀Now we just need a heart to heart between Nyktos/Poppy, and Sera/Poppy in FBAA and all will be right with the world. I love this book, and I love it even more because I wasn’t expecting it to be this enjoyable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 / 5 #ashadowintheember #jenniferlarmentrout #frombloodandash #fleshandfireseries #nyktos #nyktosandsera #kickassheroine #fantasybooks #fantasyromance #unexpectedlove #guiltypleasurereads #booknerd #allthebooks #waitingforthesequel
