I need to preface this post with the simple statement that I have been dying for Ashen City to come out officially. After having the honor of beta reading, I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for when I could finally have this book on my shelf, alongside Black Tiger, and I am beyond excited that the day has finally come! And to add to the giddy excitement of it all, I’m participating in the blog tour for the release. So if you’re here because of that, welcome!
But if you haven’t already read Black Tiger, you need to stop reading this post, hop onto Amazon, buy Black Tiger AND Ashen City, then come back to here. I’ll make it easy. Here’s the link:
Got the books ordered? Good. Carry on.
Ashen City picks up soon after Ember returns home, but don’t think that means it will be a slow, sedate start. Nope. Not at all. Within the first chapter, tension is already high and the ruthlessness of Titus is made even more evident to Ember and the readers gripping the pages.
It’s a roller coaster ride from there through to the end, filled with highs and lows in Frankfurt, angst and glee with the Turner brothers, and several familial twists that had me breathless and unable to stop. Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop. And then, when you get to the last page, you’ll howl and cry and pray that book three will come out soon.
If you’ve read Black Tiger, you already know that this amazing lady is brilliant.
