From Blood and Ash

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout Book Summary

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.

That is all. Read.

- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5 star

AMAZING!!!!

- Absolutely Amazing5 star

If you’re debating reading this book, I hope you take this review as a sign to read it!! It’s action packed while being full of romance too. The storyline is so captivating, the worst part is when it’s over. This is JLA’s first ever fantasy book and she has set the bar high. I love this book with my entire heart!!!

- Love!5 star

This was a great read! I didn't want it to end!

- Must read5 star

If you’re into the fantasy, romance, new adult kind of books, this is definitely the book for you. It’s new and refreshing with some of the same themes that you see in a lot of fantasy romance books but told a completely different way. Sometimes, especially in this genre, I feel that you get a lot of the same stories retold with very small differences between them. That was not at all the case with book/ series. I absolutely loved it. Finished it in one day and then bought the second book and finished it the next day. Could not put it down. One of the best things about this book is the main character. Poppy is headstrong, smart, courageous, and not afraid to get her hands dirty. Not only that, but she has flaws and she embraces them and has become even stronger because of them. It’s refreshing to have a main female character who can hold her own and is not just waiting for someone to save her. It’s also refreshing that she’s not 10/10 the most beautiful, skinny, blond/brunette, delicate flower. Shes a feisty redhead whose scars are proof of the trauma that she’s been through and she wears them proudly even when she feels self conscious about them. 10000/10 would recommend to read. Can’t wait for the 3rd one to come out.

- A pure delight!5 star

I stumbled across this book and it had me from the first page to the last, left me yearning for more. Read in one day. Tantalizingly delightful read with strong character development giving the reader anguish, passion, hope, and laughter. A must read!

- MUST READ5 star

I am in complete AW of this new series! Extremely talented writing, plot and emotion. It was the perfect roller coaster. I love fantasy books and this one has it all. Fantasy world, a strong but insecure girl that finds her way, battles and blood. ROMANCE. I 1000000/1000000 recommended giving this a read of you like detailed story lines with emotion and romance.

- Amazing!5 star

This book was so unexpected. I’ve never read anything by this author before and THAT is about to change! I loved this so, so much I had to read it twice! Definitely a new favorite!!

- Amazing.5 star

Love everything about this book and the characters!

- Heart broken5 star

I do not think I can make it until the next one comes out. It was absolutely amazing. The second part has to come soon. In love with the complexities of the characters!

- Not my cup of tea2 star

It’s an interesting world that’s been created but I would sometimes get lost trying to navigate through all the details (sometimes vague details). I did enjoy the writing style for the most part, though at times found it a bit repetitive. I really couldn’t bring myself to like one of the main characters but I know a lot of readers do like them, so it’s probably just me. The main reason I didn’t love it though is because of the lust and sex and just the manner of the relationship. I just couldn’t come around to shipping this unhealthy... whatever they have. Personally, I’m not a fan of the “caressing gazes” and “burning sensations” that follow but if that’s what you’re looking for then I’d recommend this book.

- Inject into my veins and let me die5 star

Oh my god. Oh my god. The teens were right about this one. They really were. Blessed to have waited this long to read it, if only because I can’t IMAGINE reading this a year ago and then waiting till this September to read the second. Move this out of your TBR and into your library!!! Purchase and read, I s2g. (Ending set-up is a little obvious but I’m here to play along and have a good time)

- Better than expected!5 star

When I first got this book I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Let me tell you that it was nothing like I anticipated— but in a good way! The world building and character development was great, and I think if you are a fan of books like the acotar series or even Serpent and Dove, you would enjoy this book! I can’t wait to read the sequel!

- Genuinely love this book5 star

It took me a little bit to get into the story, but once I did, I did not regret it. It takes a lot for me to read a book and not skim it since I’ve read so many books throughout the years. This is one of the few books where I didn’t want it to be over, but I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see where the story would progress. I love the female character, Poppy, and I think she might be my favorite of all time. I was entranced in the story and I loved the chemistry and banter between the two characters. I haven’t been able to find another book that holds my attention like this one did. I can’t wait to see where the story goes. In the meantime, I’ll be re-reading this book until the sequel is out.

- GREAT BOOK5 star

Took a chance by buying this book because by the description I wasn’t sure how much I would like it BUT I am so happy that I did! Such a great book! Already pre ordered the next book! Cannot wait to read it!

- Mind Blown5 star

Amazing. This book gave me ALL the feels. Read it in one day!

- I can’t wait for #25 star

At first the world was a lot to wrap my head around it did not matter I was sucked in, and now I wait impatiently for number 2.

- Perfection5 star

I was not expecting so many plot twists! I did predict most of them, I guess I’m either skilled at the tropes by now or they’re predictable. I didn’t mind at all, though. The best part was having it finally revealed and me being satisfied that I knew it was going to happen eventually.

- Loved5 star

Loved every second.

- HER BEST BOOK YET5 star

She outdid herself on this one. I have read all of her other books and this is by far my favorite. I could not put this down. I love how the plot unfolds and character development. (Not to mention some steamy moments) I am so excited for more of this series!

- The Characters You Want5 star

What an amazing book with a unique and surprising story. The characters are full of life and beautiful flaws and the author makes emotions and events so tangible to the reader, you won’t be able to stop reading. Truly such an amazing book. I cannot wait for more to come from Poppy!

- From Blood and Ash5 star

Amazing!! I seriously can’t wait for the next book!

- Adventure & intrigue5 star

Jennifer L Armentrout has created a whole new world that keeps you forever guessing who is trustworthy & never leaving a dull moment to want to put this book down.

- Captivating!5 star

I loved this book..I was hooked from the beginning. I read the book in a day I couldn’t stop, and it kept me intrigued! I can’t wait for the next book!!

- Loved it!5 star

Pleasantly surprised with how quick I read this! I was disappointed when it ended! I can’t wait for the next part.

- Incredible!!5 star

Wow... I have always enjoyed her books but this was above and beyond. Completely captured my attention from the first page and refused to let go... and still hasn’t! I finished the book hours ago and still can’t stop thinking about the characters, secondary characters, world building, etc., because it was THAT good.Devoured this book in under 24 hours thanks to covid’s social distancing restrictions, but now I’m slightly heartbroken because I have no idea when the second book will be released. To the author, thank you for the incredible story and please don’t make us wait too long for the second book!!!! Highly, highly recommend!!

- wow5 star

completely hooked from beginning to end! need the next book asap!!!!

- Wow5 star

I mean, wow. Just do yourself a favor and read it. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. I need more!!!

- Loved every minute5 star

One of the best fantasy books that I have read. Not your typical love, girl needs saving, type of book. So easy to get caught up in the words and read it in a day. I can’t wait for more from this series.

- JLA’s High Fantasy is on Point!5 star

If I could rate this book more than 5 stars, I totes would! This book was AMAZING!!!! I'm a huge JLA fan anyway, but this was like GOT with vampires thrown in...and I LOVE both of those! I do believe this is quite possibly her best book she's written! She had great world building, visuals, narrative, and the characters were well written. Poppy is such a strong heroine! Like, legit [email protected]! She's compassionate, fierce, feisty, protective, yet she's also a bit insecure. I loved how she would take pleasure in her defiance towards the Duke. She wasn't some meek and frail heroine, she fought when others would run. My heart broke for her many times throughout reading this story too. She sometimes just couldn't catch a break. Hawke is quite honestly now bumped to the top of my book boyfriend list of all time. He was protective, supportive, sexy, blood thirsty, and his swoon game was on point! I loved how he encouraged Poppy instead of held her back when things got tough. This was a page turner from start to finish and I devoured it within hours of opening it up. I so can't wait to see what happens in the next book! Thank you Jen for this copy! This is my honest review!!!

- Best read 20205 star

From Jennifer L Armentrout comes this new high fantasy story filled to the max with action, adventure, romance, lies, deceit and betrayal. Poppy has been the chosen one since birth, she is the maiden. What does that mean? Well she’s not quite sure, what she does know is upon her 18th birthday she will be given to the gods to fulfill her destiny, if she is found worthy. She lives a sheltered and protected life. Where she isolated from everyone with in the kingdom. Her life has never been hers to live, she longs for more. She wants to make her choices and experience all that life has to offer, but most of all she wants to be seen for who she is and not what she is. Hawke is a swoon worthy guard, with a pain deep inside that only Poppy can see, and he’s the first person to look at Poppy as well, Poppy. He sees the fierce, scarred girl beneath the veil. Quickly things escalate as the kingdom is always on high alert from the craven lurking just beyond the walls. Jennifer captivates through all 600+ pages of intensity! The story draws you in and refuses to let go. Easily the best read of this year, if not her best work to date. All I can say is I cannot wait for the next book in the series! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
