The Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny #1) by Jeaniene Frost

The Beautiful Ashes


As a lover of Cat and Bones I jumped at the chance of getting the ARC for this book. I had to say the writing felt very different. Not in a bad way, it just didn't have the components that the Night Huntress series did. 
Saying that, I still enjoyed this book. The main character is Ivy Jenkins. She has had the worse week of her life. Her parents have died in an accident and her sister has gone missing. Ivy embarks on a crusade to find her sister Jasmine. What she finds is that all those times she thought she was having hallucinations she was really getting glimpses of demon realms. The first time she gets attacked by something which doesn't look human, she runs away, not even knowing how she managed to do it. 
She soon meets Adrian, who is powerful and mysterious. She has so many questions but barely gets answers. Then she meets Zach, who tells her part of the truth. With the help of Adrian she must find a weapon to save the world and hopefully her sister too.

I love JF's books. Have been a huge fan of her Night Huntress Series. 
This story is different. 
I like Ivy. She was strong, smart and thoughtful. If it was me who discovered demons were real I would have lost it.  She had one track mind, find the weapon, save my sister.  She won't let anything deter her. Her connection to Adrian felt believable. I do think she was too harsh on Adrian, especially since every one lied to her or gave half truths.
Adrian was awesome. He was ready to fight the demons but at the same time he wanted to keep Ivy alive. His pet also made me smile.
I'm intrigued where the story is going and I'll read the next one.

Cliffhanger: Not really. It's a series.

4/5 Fangs
