A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer L. Armentrout Book Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns with book one of the all-new, compelling Flesh and Fire series—set in the beloved Blood and Ash world.
Born shrouded in the veil of the Primals, a Maiden as the Fates promised, Seraphena Mierel’s future has never been hers. Chosen before birth to uphold the desperate deal her ancestor struck to save his people, Sera must leave behind her life and offer herself to the Primal of Death as his Consort.
However, Sera’s real destiny is the most closely guarded secret in all of Lasania—she’s not the well protected Maiden but an assassin with one mission—one target. Make the Primal of Death fall in love, become his weakness, and then…end him. If she fails, she dooms her kingdom to a slow demise at the hands of the Rot.
Sera has always known what she is. Chosen. Consort. Assassin. Weapon. A specter never fully formed yet drenched in blood. A monster. Until him. Until the Primal of Death’s unexpected words and deeds chase away the darkness gathering inside her. And his seductive touch ignites a passion she’s never allowed herself to feel and cannot feel for him. But Sera has never had a choice. Either way, her life is forfeit—it always has been, as she has been forever touched by Life and Death.

Read it!!. Crying! I loved this to much..

Didn’t expect…. I did not expect to like this book and only picked it up because I heard it gave hints to The war of two Queens. I am SOoOOo glad I did. I may not understand how certain things will tie in, but I devoured this book and am excited to see how it all meshes together. I love love love these characters just as much and Poppy and Cas. I am really eager for this prequel series (fingers crossed that it will be a thing)

Mariana. An amazing book with passion, lust, and an enemies to lovers trope,

Loved it. A Shadow in the Ember is the first book in The Flesh and Fire series and takes place in the Blood and Ash universe. These series are best read in publication order so this story is best read after The Crown of Gilded Bones the third book in the Blood and Ash series. Oh my gosh my mind is just blown by this story. When I finally figured out whose these characters are and how they relate to the Blood and Ash series I was just stunned speechless. This story was just brilliantly done and I can’t wait for everyone to see these characters come alive.

BORING and mediocre at best. DNF. Couldn’t go another minute of endless question and answer conversations, boring at best smut, and just general poor worldbuilding and writing. Bleh.

Great read!!. Can’t wait for the next book

New favorite!. Loved Blood and Ash series, but Sera and Ash in the Flesh and Fire series definitely resonate on a different level! Absolutely loved this book and can’t wait for more! Biting at the bit for book 2

Shadow in the Ember. Loved it⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ms. Armentrout is one of my favorite writers. Her books are never boring and her characters are full of surprises and humor. Another great series. Can’t wait until the next book. Thanks for what you do 👍

Omg!. That Cliff hanger!! I need book 2! This book was such an amazing read!

Loved it. Hope there will be a book 2 of this series or at least a continuation! Loved the characters and how they tie into the blood and ash world. Read after the 3 book in the series. This has lead me to even more questions that I can’t wait to be revealed!


Absolutely stunning. I will wholeheartedly admit I was a little unsure at the beginning of the book but I’ve never been so happy that I kept reading because this book is incredible. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the characters, their emotions, everything. I couldn’t put it down!

Nice follow up to poppy and casteel!. So ready for the next book! Loving how everything is coming together and reading about the characters years before poppys time.

The best I’ve read in awhile. I couldn’t finish this read fast enough!

Wow. Just wow. Read it!

LOVED THIS BOOK. so good I don’t even know…cannot WAIT for wotq

AMAZING. Just read

Great Prequel. Moves faster than her other books, well written. The story was entertaining and kept me engaged. Spicy :)

Junk. Pretty much soft porn wrapped around a poorly written story

Great prequel!. Fell in love with Cas and Poppy…wasn’t sure how I’d feel about Sera and Ash but needless to say…I couldn’t put this book down. It makes me want to go back and re-read the other series because so much more information is laid out in this one that I’m having to really rack my brain to remember the details from prior. I’m going to have a hard time waiting till fall 2022 for the next installment!!!

confusing. i need a family tree and world building that isn’t executed through an exposition q&a every other chapter to make it through the rest of this terrible terrible series.

Amazing.. Love the plot, characters, everything so happy this is a series.

AMAZING. Wonderful story line that makes you just want to keep reading until 3am when you have to be up at 7am for work

Almost, but not quite.. I really enjoyed the storyline, if you’ve read the blood and ash series it starts connecting some of the dots. But it felt rushed. I can see where she was trying to go with the the characters but she missed the target. I finished it simply because I thought it’d make the rest of the blood and ash books more interesting. I hope the second book is better. Hope this helped.

i’ve never loved a book so much. YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!!! i haven’t been able to put this book down for the past 48 hours. There was not a single moment or scene when i thought “ehh that’s not written great” not one time i am absolutely in love with these characters and the plot is so beyond wonderful that with every surprise i was in awe such a well written book and i am def going to be recommending to any and everyone

Loved it!!!🥰. OMG I really loved this book and now I have a better understanding. But I really hope there’s a book 2 so Ash and Sera story continues.

Stunning!. Stunning! I devoured this and enjoyed every word. I loved being back in the FBAA world and getting a better understanding of the ascension and how it all started. The secondary characters surrounding Nyktos and Sera were all amazing in their own ways, and I loved the banter between all of them. This had incredible chemistry, jaw dropping moments, and an underlying tenderness between the two MCs that made my heart ache. I know there’s been a lot of mixed reviews, but I thought this was beautifully done.

MY GODS!. gosh i wish these books were longer. i love the way jennifer picks the next book up LITERALLY right where the last one stops. no time skips, no rehashing and it’s so seamless. the story was great. answered a few question i had from FBAA and im so invested in nyktos’ back story. it was also very relatable to me right now as my lover and i aren’t, you know? and it felt good to see that dynamic play out REALISTICALLY. ITS JUST SO REAL

Doesn’t disappoint. I have yet to be disappointed in something JLA writes. This is a wonderful off shoot of the From Blood and Ash series. I love how stubborn and independent yet still vulnerable Sera is. And Nyktos is amazing. He’s tough and possessive but caring and sweet and a great ruler. I gave 4.5 stars only because a little of the details (especially at the end) get a little confusing. I’m holding faith that as the series goes on stuff gets a little more clear so I’m not worried. Again 100% suggest this book but beware of cliffhangers.

I love this author and her stories!. I am sitting in the edge of my seat waiting for the next book in this series as well as her “From Blood and Ash” series. These stories are exciting, inspiring, steamy, and with the perfect amount of humor included.

10 stars.. Favorite book I’ve ever read. I love Jennifer L Armentrout. I started with the Blood and Ash series then followed with this one and I just fell in love with Daddy Nyktos.

Hard to put down. Epic story!!! I love it!! Great writing, great plot, and worth the money.

Amazing!!. this book was absolutely amazing!!! If you have read from blood and ash then you will probably like this one. I absolutely loved this book! The characters are amazing!

Loved it. I loved this prequel almost better than the original series. Almost.

GET THE BOOK. it’s an amazing book but i didn’t like how some things played out but i still loved it and everything connects ! i cannot wait for twotq ❤️

Loved every page. I look forward to more books in this series! I loved every page of this book!

Awesome. I could kick myself, for some reason I thought I’d read this book since I have read almost all of this authors books I could find. So I kept skipping over it until I realized last night that it didn’t say “read” but had a price to purchase. I started it this morning and it’s going on the evening and I can’t put it down.

A great find!. Loved this series!

Love. Could not stop reading. Loved it and so glad there is another book!

LOVE THIS!. I fell in love with Sera and Ash even more than I did Cas and Poppy which is saying a lot. I love the intensity of Ash and how different he is with Sera. I couldn’t put this book down and finished in over the weekend. Read all day and all night! I CANNOT wait until Fall for the next one.

Absolutely riveting!. So beautifully written and captivating! I could see this story play out in my mind like a movie. I cannot wait for the next book.

Chills all over!!. Maybe the best romance novel I’ve ever read!!!! The last half of the book is even better. The last 5 chapters had me GLUED to my phone. Couldn’t put it down. Finished it in 3 days. Absolutely amazing wonderful beautiful story that connects so many dots.

SOOOOOOOO FREAKING AMAZING!!. You must read the other books first. But THIS book was so good. Explains so much. I CANNOT wait for the war of two queens to come out!

Anticipation. Can’t wait for the next book

So good!. Did not disappoint! Loved Nyktos and Sera so much!

I am already in love with this series❣️. A phenomenal continuation after completing the Blood and Ash Series!!! 🥰💞📖

Casteel and Poppy. I loved this book!! But I NEED more Cas and Poppy!!!!!! We didn’t get to see Cas give Poppy that ‘biggest diamond ring’ and I want to see them in their King and Queen roles. How they manage the two kingdoms…Atlantia and Solis!

First review Second Read. I’ve read this twice. I really enjoy JLAs writing. Love her other series too. I enjoy seeing how this all plays out in her head. Can’t wait to see what happens next!!

A before Poppy and Castile. I am in love with Sera an Ash as much as I love Poppy and Cass. I was on the edge of my seat this whole book. The minute I finished I immediately bought the other two books an I can’t wait to dive in. I 1000% recommend this book and series.

OMG. The ending is amazing!!!

Outstanding!. Absolutely amazing, Jennifer has outdone herself again!!!! X

Best book in the series. I love the whole series, but this book is (so far) my absolute favourite. Every character is gripping.

the ending made me feel sad☹️. i enjoyed this book and it kept me hooked but i felt depressed at the ending. the writing became a bit repetitive at times, love the characters but sometimes i think things became unnecessarily over complicated

This book omg. I started reading this book without realising it was a prequel to a series and GOD I’m so sad it’s over and there’s not gonna be a follow on cause this is one of the best books I’ve read in a while! The plot was constantly thickening (I didn’t think it was even possible) and every character from our main ones to our loveable supporting characters were all amazingly captured! It truly was amazing, I loved that it was sexy without being rammed down your throat but it held that sexy suspense all throughout the pages. Tension was constantly being built and that ending !!! THE ENDING !! I’m just so heartbroken that there isn’t MORE cause it definitely felt like it was leading to something else and now I am desperate to know what happens next! Really loved Ash and Sera and the way they maintained this banter that felt so easy and natural! Can there be a sequel to a prequel ?? Please ?? I wish I could give it more than 5 stars :(

Love it. Such a great book. All of her books are fantastic but I particularly love the Blood and Ash series and this one. Can’t wait for the second book because I couldn’t put the first down!

This should have come first. Loved this book! So much better than all of her other books and I was not expecting the writing, plot and pace to be as terrific as it was. A great surprise and a treasure to find.

It is a Must Read!. Seriously loved this book. It was vivid, wild and such an exciting read. Highly recommend this book. It beautifully compliments the Blood and Ash series.

Slow start but worth it. It took me a while to get into it I found the start a bit slow and didn’t know if I could get through it honestly. But I kept reading and it definitely picks up and gets better. Worth the read!

Entranced. This series, plus Poppy & Casteel have me hooked.

A shadow in the ember. This book is the first in the series. It is a prequel to the Blood and Ash series. It was good to get back into this world again after finishing off the other books. There is lots of familiar people and events that had me constantly trying to remember the details I had already learnt to piece everything together. I like Sera and Ash and their feisty back and forth. She never seems to be able to conform to the perfect, subservient woman she is meant to be. I will definitely be reading the second book when it comes out later this year. Single POV, low/med spice, 18+

Wow. Captivating!

Chefs kiss. Masterpiece. Such a great read. Thank you JLA!

Didn’t expect much but wow. Didn’t expect much after reading the last 3 of her books. This book is incredible. I am utterly amazed and blown away by how much I love this book. I am only 50 percent in and am on the edge of my seat. I love the characters, the world building, the chemistry. Ahhh!!! Sooo good. So happy I chose to read this so soon!

Omg. Can not wait for the next book

Fantastic Read. I was hooked from page one. Looking forward to reading the next instalment.

Incredible. I couldn’t put it down, exceptional writing and so captivating! I can not wait for the next book 😍 my #1 favourite series!!!

Amazing. So good! I’m devo there’s not a second one out

JLA can do no wrong. The From Blood and Ash series was honestly my favourite series but I’m 100% hooked on Sera and Nyktos’ story. This book was amazing and so much fun. Love this author and all these characters.

A spellbinding read. A captivating story with beautifully constructed characters.
