Ashes (Entangled Covet) Sarah Gilman

Ashes (Entangled Covet) Sarah Gilman
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I hadn’t realised this book was so short, I tend to avoid those, feeling they don’t really allow the reader time to get deep into the story, and I like to be fully immersed in the plot and characters. What attracted me and made me miss the length constraints though was the Phoenix slant. I love paranormal but can’t ever remember reading one with this in it. I’m glad I did as it was an enjoyable read.
Anyway the book…I enjoyed the story, good plot, good characters and a fun read. It had the characters I feel necessary for a good romance, Ambrosia and Reece of course, but also a good “bad” person in the form of the controlling and wicked grandmother. I loved the phoenix slant, and the way it shaped so much of the action. The mysterious Trees too were a fun touch, along with the reasonable ( its fiction, so truth and believe needs a bit of suspension!) explanations as to how they cope with humans, and keep the secret of the species from them. It all wrapped up neatly to a HEA.
I just wish it was longer – in my view Sarah has used all the elements that would make a great series and if this could have been strung out into one longer book, with some follow ups either of Ambrosia and Reece in the near future – a “what happened next” scenario, or the family or relatives and their stories, or even just spin off adventures of these characters, maybe how certain forces are out to release their secret… anything like that – I’d love to have read it. Still, I enjoyed this even despite the space limitations.
Stars: four.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
