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.

AmazingPlease let there be more! I absolutely loved this read, and I literally couldn’t put it down. I anxiously await the next!.Score: 5/5

My Honest opinionThe book was good don’t get me wrong… but I do not care for books that leave the story hanging so much. There has GOT to be another book. The ending alone is what makes me not give it 5 stars. It’s a great read. Sometimes a bit wordy. But the ending…. Ugh. I need the rest of Ash and Sera’s story. Like yesterday..Score: 3/5

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..Score: 5/5

Amazingly written!If I could read a series for the rest of my life, this would be it. I’ve grown to love the storyline of every book, the tension and build ups. I can’t help but wish it were real! Eagerly waiting for the next book to come out..Score: 5/5

So goodThis was the prequel we needed and it was hot and steamy. I LOVED it as I did all the other books in this series. Waiting until March will be very difficult..Score: 5/5

Glorious!!Loved every second! Love her writing and how it hooks you. I literally could not put this book down..Score: 5/5

I need more!I literally could not put this book down, it was SO GOOD. I was a sucker for the FBAA series but this put it to shame in my opinion. I am disappointed in the ending… not a fan of cliffhangers, I cannot wait to see the rest of their story..Score: 5/5

Loved it!This book was amazing, devoured in a matter of days. I love the parallels between sera and ash and poppy and cas, it made me think back to when poppy sat with Nyktos and he said she was just like her, now it’s clear the “her” in question is sera. I think some could find flaw in the similarities but I think it works wonderfully since they are their descendants and traits can be hereditary. Regardless I cannot wait for the next book, the cliffhanger is almost too much to handle. I need the rest of BOTH series ASAP!!.Score: 5/5

Fantastic.Even better than the FBAA books in my opinion. It’s so well written, the pacing is perfect, the world building is smooth, and the characters pull you in. Definitely hades and Persephone vibes, but still unique and original. It seems you can pick this book up first, or after reading the FBAA books, but I think I got more out of it by reading it after FBAA..Score: 5/5

Absolutely incredibleI was hesitant to read it as I thought different main characters in the fbaa world could never live up to the og’s and would disappoint (as many prequel/ sequel series do for me) but I was thoroughly mistaken. I could not put down this book. Rip my sleep schedule..Score: 5/5

Must read!!Loved it! Couldn’t stop reading!!!.Score: 5/5

AwesomeLoved it. I can’t help but notice the similarities between Ash + Sara’s relationship and poppy + casteel. They have the same dynamic. Sera is literally poppy: “I have so many questions,” she’s a bada** warrior, she can heal people… the list goes on. Ash is the powerful tall dark and sexy who everyone thinks is evil but is actually an amazing person. Therefore, he’s basically casteel. Lol don’t get me wrong.. I really liked the book, but they’re literally the same characters with different names slapped on. Also, I had such a hard time remembering the names and places. I need a sheet that tells me who everyone is, a map with everything labeled, and a timeline so I can figure out when all of this took place. Otherwise, the book is really good. Can’t wait for the next one!.Score: 4/5

PerfectionI had so much fun reading this and remembering tiny details from the FBAA books. I highlighted so many things in this book and I had a blast reading it. The ending is a bit of a cliff hanger but everything wrapped up nicely and I’m not too upset with it. I know this book is a new release but I already can’t wait for more books. Ash is the sweetest and sera is so fire-y. 🥺.Score: 5/5

There better be a sequel!I loved this book! I legitimately read it in less than a day because I was so hooked, but I will be forever disappointed if there doesn’t end up being a sequel. I can see why there might not be, but the book ends on a such a darn cliffhanger that I will always be left wondering about the rest of Sera and Ash’s story. Other than that, soooo good..Score: 5/5

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..Score: 5/5

The best fantasy romance author out thereJLA, never fails. I found myself always latching on to the romance of a good story but this time I actually craved the fantasy more in this book because it was just that good. Don’t get me wrong she writes the steamy bits freaking well. But I just adored the fantasy writing for this one. And when you mix the two together you easily get 5 stars..Score: 5/5
