Review: From Blood And Ash - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

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.

A Maiden…

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.

A Duty…

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.

A Kingdom…

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.

Review: From Blood And Ash

Fear and bravery are often one and the same. It either makes you a warrior or a coward. The only difference is the person it resides inside.

A girl upends her fate – and that of her kingdom – as her heart duels with the forbidden, inciting her to question everything she holds true.

Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers a rousing series starter in FROM BLOOD AND ASH – her first foray into high fantasy. The narrative brims with tension, magic, myth, longing and adrenaline as we see a kingdom begin to tear at the seams. Violent, cursed creatures lurk among them, striking against those chosen by the gods.

In Armentrout’s world, some are born to rise as Ascended, and others given up in servitude of the gods. Without the Maiden, without Poppy, however, there is no Ascension. Chosen from birth, Poppy must never be looked upon, never touched, never spoken to.

Despite deep longing to claim her life as her own, as the Maiden, Poppy must be protected at all costs.

But when her personal guard is the charming, golden-eyed Hawke, the rules are blurred by desire, by a man who tempts her to believe she deserves more.

As they set off on a treacherous journey, and more blood soaks the ground beneath their every step, the life Poppy once knew begins to violently unravel.

“Some truths do nothing but destroy and decay what they do not obliterate. Truths do not always set one free. Only a fool who has spent their entire life being fed lies believes that.”

The world in FROM BLOOD AND ASH is fascinating. It feels dangerous, tense, and veiled. You sense secrets behind a facade, sense there’s so much more to uncover, making the pace propulsive and exciting. But in true Armentrout style, it’s the characters and their interactions that truly shine in the narrative. They’re thoughtfully drawn, nuanced people whom you grow to care about, root for, feel for – especially the fierce heroine at the story’s center, a girl who fights for whom she loves and refuses to ignore what rouses within. And as the story builds to a shocking crescendo, it becomes undeniably clear that Armentrout can dominate any genre and leave us clamoring for more once again.

FROM BLOOD AND ASH is one of this year’s most exciting, not-to-be missed fantasies.
