    Description

    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.

    Commentaires

    "Dreamy, twisty, steamy escapism. Take me back!" --New York Times bestseller Wendy Higgins 

    “Jennifer Armentrout has the power to control my emotions with every word she writes. From swooning to crying to racing through the pages to find out what happens next, I couldn't stop reading about Hawke and Poppy, and you won't be able to either.” --Brigid Kemmerer, New York Times bestselling author of A Curse So Dark and Lonely 

    "Narrator Stina Nielsen enthralls with this sumptuous romance, which highlights her ability to thoroughly immerse listeners in its fantasy world.… Nielsen employs a wide range of inflections, from the warm, breathless tone of the heroine to the appealing accent of Hawke, the love interest, combining them in the sensual scenes they share." --AudioFile Magazine, An Earphones Award Winner

    Great book!

    I have been looking for a book like this to listen to for a while. The narrator is great, making the main character and the story deep. I like her badass side (not too much, just perfect). There is action, romance, fun and suspense.

    Hum - just hum

    I actually really enjoyed this book, I just don’t really know why...

    Good points:
    - It’s a totally different take on the whole paranormal romance vampire, werewolf, zombie idea. I enjoyed it wasn’t just in your face vampire and werewolf. There are different names associated with them that bring them out of the eye rolling same old story.
    - The idea of the story is new and not just a rehash or one different love triangle or another
    - I enjoyed that the main character isn’t a useless fawn but also isn’t all balls up.
    - I liked the secondary characters.

    Bad points:
    - I HATED the fact that there is abuse. Not only that there is abuse but the author makes you live through it. Not ok. TRIGGERS!
    - I don’t think I like the male lead. It’s not even the whole good guy/bad guy/good guy thing. It’s not the betrayal. It’s not lies or anything like that. It just honestly feels like he is playing her through the entire book. I don’t buy the love.
    - The whole idea that she is the most important thing to the whole nation but no one ever checks on her from the palace. If she is going to save the whole of everything forever then maybe see if her keeper is beating the hell out of her maybe once
    - I don’t mentally understand how someone who lived such a sheltered life, doesn’t really have family who loves her, is abused by her overseers, isn’t really allowed to socialize, and who is basically kept in a closet her entire life can be a strong independent person. That’s not how it works.

    Am I going to get the second book? Yes, most likely. I want to see where the story goes. Am I going to have this books on my list of books I listen to time and time again? Nope.

    Another Dumb Heroine!!

    Another dumb heroine, acting dumb, thinking dumbly and speaking dumb. All for an undeserving man. I despise these types of books.

    Great if you are into harlequin romance

    I get a little bit of character building and descriptions of love to help keep a story going. However seriously this novel was written for young adults who are just blossoming into adulthood. It is ridiculously long on the descriptions of love scenes and tender moments between characters. I bet that there is a group of people that like fantasy and like love stories. This book is for them.

    You saw love; I saw a dumpster fire.

    Dear Audible Friends & Followers:
    I would like to state for the official review
    that I:
    * respect all your positive reviews around this book.
    * am a sucker for love a great love story.

    BUT GUYS. This ish is pretty low grade quality... everything? Let’s please call a spade a spade.

    So here’s what I wasn’t in the mood for:
    - The insane amount of abuse. Gross. Boo. Hiss. My feminist mood was shaking her fists.
    - Overall Execution:
    Example 1: The voice - I just didn’t expect the voice to be so modern in this world where electricity was a BFD. I kind of wish that Armentrout would have picked a century lane and stayed in it- because the voice felt too casual/ sloppy/clunky as it went back and forth. I admit, I’m probably a little snobby about this because of my love for Outlander.

    Example 2: Pacing - I can only wallow in repetitive self pity for so long. It felt like Armentrout was getting stuck in wording mini-circles.

    The Audible Narrator: Meh. I’m sure Nielsen did her best but I ended up trying to go back to Kindle.

    Abysmal

    This book is appallingly bad. I get it's YA. But young adult readers deserve better than to have their intelligence insulted by this garbage. I hate living in the protagonist's head. She's like the La Croix Sparkling water of the tired CHOSEN ONE female lead trope. An extremely watered down character lacking any substance. And of course she spends more time swooning over the PERFECT, yet utterly boring love interest than she does worrying about people dying around her. Extremely little happens in the first 20 or so chapters and very little writing is spent on what does occur that might be interesting. Even the "steamy" stuff is utterly laughable because I don't give a damn about either of the 2 protags and their "witty banter" is eye-rollingly dumb.

    I'd sure like to know more about the fantasy world in which the characters live but what much us withheld and the story doesn't seem to really use the setting as anything but an unessecessary backdrop.

    I wasn't expecting to read this to challenge my intellect. But it's not even a decent guilty pleasure. This makes Twilight look like The Great Gatsby.

    I tend to finish every novel no matter how bad. I can't listen to another word of this drivel.

    On another note, the narrator does a good job. There. That's the only good thing I can say....

    Wow!

    This is a steamy, romantic, action and a bit of a thriller story. Some hot sexy scene and good plot. Just what I needed in the middle of this covid-19 crisis to keep my mind busy.

    So freaking good!

    I've known for years that Jennifer could spin a tale. But this one is her best. This is the best fantasy novel I've read since The Bridge Kingdom. I'm not even sure that I can wait for the audio of the 2nd book. I will be taking the needed time to read it. The narration was perfectly performed which made the story even better. I wish that I could give this book 10 stars!!!

    What an amazing story!!

    I have been hearing a lot about the story of the past couple months. It’s been getting wonderful reviews but I decided to wait until the audiobook was out before I read it. Let me tell you the story was just as good if not better than everyone has been saying. Poppy and Hawke are amazing together. They have a very special relationship, the witty banter their sizzling chemistry and their deep understanding of one another is amazing to watch unfold. The only sad thing I have to say is that I have to wait till December for the next one to come out an audiobook. But I am so excited to see where the story goes.

    *Edit from my previous review...

    Continued from my previous review because I’m a dork and I’m so embarrassed. I can’t believe I wrote the wrong name of the book title.

    Since you can’t edit your review, I’m being a serious nerd, writing another and correcting the error in my last sentence. 🤦‍♀️

    3 somewhat long stars

    I enjoyed the story but honestly this book could of been cut in half. It was way too long and a bit repetitive. I almost gave up and it does not start to pick up till your about 1/2 way through. I will buy book 2 but not sure it’s worth the price of buying the audio version again.

    Still amazing after reread it

    Even though I've already read it, the story and writing style are still unbelievably amazing. The voice over is incredibly as well, it helped me to relax during the weeks of my exams. I can totally recommend it!

    Its mostly about sex and romance

    Its VERY much centered on a youthful relationship. Dont get me wrong. Its well made. And love scenes are actually quite good. But there is not much else. And what else there is, is quite predictable.

    Sehr langatmig.

    Ich bin ein großer Fan von Armentrouts "Origins" Reihe.
    Diese Geschichte kommt dem nicht mal im entferntesten nahe.
    Speziell der erste Drittel zieeeeht sich ewig. Im letzten Drittel ist es etwas besser.
    Auch gelang es der Autorin nicht so ganz mir die Charaktere wirklich "ans Herz zu legen ".

    Die Narratorin fand ich am Anfang ganz schrecklich.
    Nicht genug, dass die Geschichte zäh ist, liest auch sehr langsam. Ich habe die Geschwindigkeit auf 1,05 erhöht und damit war es besser. Was ich nicht ändern konnte war, wie sie Hawk spricht. Grrrr...

    Alles in allem war das ganz ok. Aber mehr wie 3 Sterne waren nicht drin.

    Einfach toll!

    Dieses Buch hat definitiv den Hype verdient. Die letzten etwa 150 Seiten haben nochmal alles auf den Kopf gestellt. Zuvor fand ich die Story schon richtig gut, aber danach war ich einfach geflasht und zu 100% überzeugt😍 Dieses Ende war einfach genial und ich kann es gar nicht erwarten herauszufinden, wie es weitergeht!❤

    4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Now we come to this book, also a book that I have wanted to read since I heard about it. I'm honest, I was also scared because I didn't like the last fantasy series I read by Jennifer L. Armentrout at all, but this book sounded promising for whatever it is. Even if she does what she has done with almost every book of her so far and I think it's good that we get a man's description but you shouldn't overdo it because she always lets the protagonist over so weak and willing and that it was about Poppy who had no experience I found it a bit too naive but otherwise I liked the story. The plot and the idea behind it were really good even if some characters get on my nerves (I'll just say the Duke). Nevertheless, in the course of the book I had the feeling that something was wrong and the fact that Poppy trusts everyone right away has unfortunately not made me a personable character. However, I still felt with her in many things and can understand her too, I just wished that she listened more to the people she knows better. In the course of the book it got better and better towards the end, especially because we then learn a lot that a big twist happens that you didn't expect and changes the whole story and makes it interesting. All in all it was a good story and since some things are still unclear to me, I want to know more and I am excited about the second part.
