Review: Ashes by Sarah Gilman

Accidents happen for a reason...

Journalist Ambrosia Pellerin accepts an assignment involving the legendary phoenix, expecting, if nothing else, a little entertainment. Instead, she winds up pregnant—by a surprisingly human-looking firebird, Reece Bennu.

As the Phoenix prince, Reece is next in line to the throne and expected to marry a purebred royal. A common human such as Ambrosia is not in the cards. He swears, though, he’ll never be an absentee father.

As Ambrosia’s due date grows closer, so do the soon-to-be parents. But will their tentative love survive the prejudice of Reece’s grandmother, who will stop at nothing to tear the two apart?

Ashes was very a pleasing surprise for me. I found it to be a sweet and exciting PNR with a new kind of shifter for me – a phoenix. With PNRs being my preferred genre, it’s not often I come across new and unique shifter so when the opportunity is offered, I jump. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the plot twists were fairly unique. The ending was more than satisfying. Over-all I fantastic read.

Reece is a phoenix. Not any old phoenix, he’s royalty. Ambrosia is a journalist and a human. Now normally it wouldn’t be a big deal a shifter mixing it up with a human. There’s a little hip action and BAM! a half-breed baby. Reading through the blurb that is was I pretty much expected. However, that wasn‘t the case. I won’t spoil it on the how, but needless to say I was surprised. Actually, it was the whole phoenix phenomenon that had me half captivated. The other have were the characters. Ambrosia and Reese are really sweet together. The slow build up to their relationship and sexual heat between then very nicely done. The secondary characters were an added bonus (LOVED the tree!). Of course, there are the antagonist who manage to keep this story rolling. Happily, there is an epilogue at the end that completes Reese and Ambrosia’s story off very sweetly so I don’t have to wait around for a next book.

From its beautiful cover to its beautiful story, Ashes by Sarah Gilman is a shifter story anyone will enjoy. I know I did.
