From Blood And Ash (Blood and Ash #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout , the first book in the Blood and Ash series which is a Fantasy Romance book and was published in March 2020 by Blue Box Press.

There are no words for this book! It is very hyped and I can assure you that the hype is real. I loved everything about it. The story, the world, the characters and of course Hawke and everything about him.
I was hooked from the first chapters and I would have binge read it if it wasn't for my little toddler. 

There are many twists and unexpected turns to the story that made it even better. It is a little slow at the beginning but that is perfectly fine because we got to know the characters better. 
On to the characters now. I loved Poppy as a character. She is smart, strong and knows what she wants. Hawke is also perfect. He is smart, handsome and very mysterious. The relationship between Poppy and Hawke is exactly what I like in a romance. It was evolving as slow as it was needed. 
The world-building in the book is very interesting and I cannot wait to learn more in the sequels.

All in all, I loved From Blood and Ash and I cannot wait to read the next one, A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire. 

This was the first Jennifer L. Armentrout book I read and I will definitely read more from her.

If you haven't already, read this book now!!

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.  

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
