Beautiful Ashes : Review

Title: The Beautiful Ashes
Author: Jeaniene Frost

In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate. 

Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. 

Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn't: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between…

My Review
Ivy has always been different. She has visions of thins that just can't be real.  Now her sister is missing and when she goes looking for her she finds out the truth. Her visions aren't fake they are real. She can see into another realm. Her sister is trapped there and she has to save her. She finds help in Adrian. Adrian knows all about the realm. It is where he was raised and where he walked away from. He and Ivy feel an attraction between them but they can't be together. He tries his best to help her find a relic that will enable her to take on the demons that have her sister. They both are heading into danger and falling in love just can't happen. Ivy has a lot to learn about who and what she is and the journey to find it is a dangerous one.

Ivy s a wonderful character. When others would give up or go to the nut house she buckles down to save her sister. She sees other realms and what is in those realms would send a normal person screaming away. Not Ivy. She wants to know everything that has to do with what power she has and what is going on. She doesn't like secrets. Adrian seems moody at times. he has had a different upbringing than others and it has left his mark on him. He tries his best to resist anything to do with Ivy. Both are great characters with ties to an interesting history.

I have to say this book turned out way different than what I thought it would. It was so much better! There is several twist i didn't even think of from reading the blurb and I love how the author twisted them in. This book is fast paced and you don't want to put it down for anything. You just keep wanting to read to see what next. I have to say Ivy does amazing at everything that is thrown at her. She has to do many things and change several times to reach her goal. Some of these changes are hilarious. While there is something between Adrian and Ivy for the most part they try to keep it under control. There is a lot of danger in this book and I loved seeing the different realm and creatures. I am now left with the impossible task of waiting for the next book. Something that is not easy to do as I love this world the author has create. I want to know what next. if you love a book with fabulous characters and a wonderful story line pick this one up!
