If you know me, than you know that Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books are always a must buy. I have never been disappointed and when I got the chance to get my hands on From Blood and Ash, I swear I jumped on the occasion to find out how I was going to enjoy her writing into this genre.
Let me tell you that this author comes through once again with From Blood and Ash as it kept me enthralled throughout the whole book. You won't be able to put down this epic story once you start. This book has everything you didn’t know you needed in a book. I swear I had difficulties to put it down when I needed to work. I needed to know more and more.
Poppy is an incredible character. She is the Maiden; the Chosen. All of her life, she has been treated differently because of it by the few people who get to see her. She has a long list of things she can’t do, but Poppy is also kind of like a rule breaker which makes her more interesting. Throughout the book, you see how she’s fighting to find herself, but still trying to remain true to what people are expecting from her, but as the book progress so many events will be putting her faith to the test. She has a strong personality and she has such endurance to everything she had to go through. I loved how she was portrayed in this book and I’m looking forward to see how much growth she will do in the next books to come.
Next is Hawke who is an intriguing character from the moment you are first introduced to him. He is cocky and sure of himself, but he also has a way that makes him seem like he connects with the people he talks to. There is an aura of mystery around him which only wants you to get to know him more. His character pulls you in and you just take anything that he’s giving you.
Poppy and Hawke’s chemistry is over the chart and when they are together, you just feel it in everything they do or say. Throughout the book, the two will banter and he really likes to tease her and this just adds more to the chemistry between them. Hawke will be a major factor in Poppy’s search to find herself. He will bring a lot of feelings she hadn’t really had the chance to feel before and it will bring so much more question about what she is expected to do and what she actually wants.
So many characters in this book that you will either love, hate or perhaps be confuse about them, but one thing is for sure; none of them will leave you indifferent. Whether you care for them or simply want them gone, they will all make you feel something.
The story itself is filled with a lot of this world’s history, its secrets and as truths start to be revealed, the characters will have to debate about where they actually stand in this battle between two clans and whether or not they had been right or wrong about what they knew.
I swear this review is hard to write because I could say so much, but spoilers will be said and I want you guys to see for yourself just how awesome this book was. I wanted to re-read this book over and over again once I was done with it. Jennifer L. Armentrout knows what her readers love and she has put up an interesting list of characters, of events and secrets that will captivate you throughout the whole book.
Honestly, you need to grab that book right now because it is one amazing read and I can't contain my excitement for the next book to come.
