Synopsis

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.

News on Jennifer L. Armentrout’s New Book | The Awkward Book Blogger

A couple days ago, I got an email. A newsletter, to be exact, from the one and only Jennifer L. Armentrout. If you’re no stranger, you know that Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my favorite young adult authors. I think she holds the record of the most books reviewed on this blog (don’t quote me on that… I’m not actually sure and I’m too tired to double check).

Anywho, she announced in her most recent newsletter that she has working on a novel that she mysteriously named FB&A. It’s probably the first letter of each word in the title if I had to guess, but that name doesn’t give us much about the actual story.

Here’s what Armentrout was willing to share with us.
