Take Me to the Good Parts of This Book
Warning: The Good Parts Might Be Explicit
- Heat rockets through Ivy's body.
- Sexual Tension
- A hot gaze intensifies the moment.
- Hot Hot Hot
- Adrian's hands roam over flesh not fabric.
- I Want You
- He could have sworn Ivy was a Minion.
- Declaration of Love
- Ivy chokes out some breathy declarations.
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.

Great Listen, but was it YA or not?
I loved this book and can’t wait for the next in the series to come out. I love Jeaniene Frost’s writing and haven’t read (or listened) to a book I didn’t like. However, I can see why many people (even her diehard fans) were turned off by this particular one. There isn’t much “steam” to this one and it’s relatively PG compared to her other books. It’s definitely more of a YA listen than an adult PNR book. However, I do love YA and by its own merits this was a great story. I am hopeful this series will “mature” along with the main character, Ivy. Overall I would recommend this one if you like Ms. Frost's books and try not to compare it to Cat and Bones.

It Was A Good Read!!
This is different to what am used to by Jeaniene Frost, its not the usual vampire stories with the lovely characters we all love... Its a completely different theme and story, no vamps, but its all about angels and demons, and all i can say that it was interesting...
The main character "Ivy" has some powers were made her life hard, she kept on seeing other things around her, not only what regular humans could but supernatural things... that part was interesting a bit... but i don't know how to say this, the story was going a bit too fast. I do think that it could have been a bit longer so there could be more details, it did go really fast and for some reason it didn't feel right.
but the plot itself is very interesting, it is different than the usual books you read and there is plenty of conflicts between the characters, which i have liked.
I'm interested in how it will continue, so for sure will get the next one.

Amazing, definitely worth the money
What made the experience of listening to The Beautiful Ashes the most enjoyable?
If your looking for cat and bones reincarnate, don't bother. If you are looking for a truly well crafted story, with twisting plot lines and a narrator that greatly cares for the story and the characters (props tavia Gilbert) this Is for you. I would like to thank jeaniene frost for taking the leap from the highly successful night huntress universe and for keeping your readers so engaged. So many other authors rehash the same story with the same characters for the money. Jeaniene took the risk and I have to say that I for one am a devoted fan for life.

I am a big fan of Jeanine Frost and her supernatural worlds and have enjoyed every book until this one.
The character development was poor, I didn't care much about the characters even at the end of the book. The main character is whiny and annoying and her relationships with other characters don't develop anywhere. Her 'Love' for the Hero is unconvincing and shallow.
The concept of the supernatural world is a good one with huge potential, but this book unfortunately doesn't do it justice.
I really wanted to like this book and I finished it out of respect to the previous books. Sadly Disappointed.
