I thought that this was more accomplished than book 1. Ms Anderson could have gone in a completely different direction with Mena. She could have been depicted as weak, but instead, although a bit broken (understandably), she was portrayed as a kick ass fighter and strong enough to stand with Asher.
There was genuine emotion in this story. Character depth and complexity and action. There is also now a real feeling that something bad is coming, and the bonds around the core characters are tangibly strengthening in preparation.
This was a hugely enjoyable story. I look forward to the continuation of the saga.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Mena’s mind, body and soul have literally been shattered to the point of numbness. She’s carried a heavy burden through all the torture she’s received, yet her spirit continues to fight the good fight. Finally free, Mena is struggling with reality, and being around people again.
In all the chaos, she literally finds an electric connection with Asher, Guardian to the King. Being a wraith, he claims her love, and there’s no turning back from that, so together they try to deal with their past and present heartaches. Asher is my current god, he’s everything a woman would want in a man and so much more. I’m smitten beyond belief!
A hell storm is coming for them all, and Mena and Aurelia are in the center of it. These sisters are beyond amazing, strong willed, and absolutely snarky, and I love them to the point of girl crush status! No shame!
In Falling Ashes, we finally meet Aurelia's sister Mena, who has been held captive by the evil Iva for the last fifty years. Mena has been broken to the point where she no longer feels the pain inflicted on her body. But her mind is strong and her spirit stronger still, if only she could overcome the guilt that plagues her life and heal the scars left on her soul from her heartbreaking past.
While recuperating, she meets handsome Guardian to the King, Asher Crane. He has his own list of problems, the most important being the imminent demise of his beloved King and Queen, in which the law states Ash must die too. With so little time left in this world, the last thing Ash needs is to fall in love with the electrifyingly beautiful Aegis but being a Wraith means he doesn't have a choice in the fact his heart has claimed her nor can the man in him fight the pull of the feisty yet fragile woman he has come to know.
He wants to take her away from it all, let her heal in peace and after a life in hiding let Mena find out who she really is but with a death sentence hanging over them, unease between the Wraiths and the Phoenixes growing day by day and Mena in possession of a power that many would kill to obtain, can these two ever find peace? And does Mena still have it within her to save the people she loves as well as herself?
I really loved this second instalment in the Ashes to Ashes series. Scattered Ashes was the first paranormal book I had picked up in a few years and I was instantly drawn in by Annie's imagination and the strength of her characters, particularly the female leads who are not the damsels in distress we have come to expect in this genre but are stronger and sassier even through adversity.
Mena gives Aurelia a run for her money in the badass stakes, surprising I know, but she's hilariously strong willed and entertaining and I loved every moment spent inside her head. And Asher, well I just got myself a new book boyfriend, sexy Asher has it all, wit, good looks, sensitivity and well, lets just say he knows how to treat a lady in the bedroom or any other room or surface he cares to show his appreciation for the woman he adores.
All of the characters we got to know in Scattered Ashes are also back and I am really looking forward to the next instalment and although I can't wait to find out what happens to Nicola (and hopefully understand her a bit more) I am praying that Annie is going to write a story for Evan and West because I just know it's going to be a s***-hot action packed adventure that's most likely going to rip my heart out...no pressure there Annie :) Oh and just so you know...I'm claiming West, just putting that out there now so there's no arguments down the line... Okay Ladies
If you haven't read paranormal before or would like to try something fresh and contemporary to this genre I strongly recommend this series.
the king of the wraiths guardian , Asher , instantly feels a pull to Mena & she instinctively trusts him whereas others that try to touch her she'd instantly fry whether she meant to or not .
the queen of the wraiths is slowly being poisoned & if she dies her husband dies with her as well as their guardians .
This is a great story that shows Aurelia & Mena reconnecting as well as Asher & Mena's love developing amidst the uncertainty that hangs around both the wraiths & the phoenixes .plenty of action & great cliffhanger at the end , bring on book 3 .
