Born of Ashes

Guardians of Ascension

This was a great book. While I’ve never read a book by Ms. Roane, I’m now looking forward to reading her other books. This book is in the middle of a series, so I have a few other books to enjoy before her next book comes out. I liked this book for making it clear it is part of a series, yet not go into too much backtracking of prior stories. This novel was fast-paced, witty, and intriguing. There are moments of hilarity (especially when it comes to a lady’s choice of outfits). The characters are well-developed with timing enhancing that development. I spent an entire day reading this book (I couldn’t stop!). I hated finishing the last page and setting this book down. The only consolation: there were more books in this series for me to read. If there were any shortcomings in this book, I could not find them.

Book Blurb for Born of Ashes

Enter a hidden world of winged vampire warriors—and the women they are sworn protect…

For years, she was kept as a human slave—one of seven unwilling “blood donors” for the death vampires who thirst for absolute power. Now, Fiona is a free woman, haunted by her memories of being strapped to a gurney, drained of blood, then revived at the last moment. She lives to avenge her captors—but only one warrior can help her…

Jean-Pierre has lived and fought for over two-hundred years. He knows the triumph of slaying a death vampire, but has never known anything like the feelings that arise when he becomes Fiona’s guardian. Her beauty, her pain, her passion—and her growing power—consume his senses. Now the warrior must draw his sword once more…and fight the gates of hell itself—for love.
