I think this series is so good, love the characters especially Poppy and her ability to sense peoples emotions , it‘s definitely steamy at times but it‘s a great story line that even when it‘s slower it still doesn‘t disappoint!

Finished book 3. It got better! The action was throughout the book with a few twists. I think the infodumping could have been spread out a bit more. The heat got turned up even more and frankly I got tired of it, there‘s only so much play by play one can handle especially when there‘s a certain routine established in passionate encounters of heroes. Main hero character felt flat, I‘d love to see him grow. But overall I enjoyed it.

⭐⭐⭐ It isn't actually the kissing that makes me feel like Fred Savage in The Princess Bride. It's the constant declarations of everlasting love. There was a lot to like in this book, but there are way too many pages devoted to repetitive descriptions of just how devoted our heroine, Poppy, and her husband are to each other. 🤮🤮 Still, the politics of Poppy's new country and the ceaseless plots leading to war are compelling.

Book 3 in the series and it was really good…up until the middle and then it really slowed only to pick up towards the end…which is a set up for book 4. I really hope book 4 is as good as book 2 here.

Finished 2 last books for July. This one was an ebook I finished on Friday. These books are just like a guilty pleasure reads for me. This is the 3rd book and it left me wanting the next one. We finally get to see Poppy in the end acting as her true self and I can't wait to see her take down the evil.

I‘m giving this a borderline pick. There is a lot of good in this third book of the series. However it definitely suffers from middle book syndrome. It has a lot of filler that was meant to be character development but was at times boring. However, the beginning and end are great. This cannot be read alone and does end on a cliffhanger. 3.5⭐️ another bingo for #bookspinbingo

I love this series, and I can‘t wait to read the next installment! That being said, this was definitely my least favorite of the 3 so far. The first fourth was very exciting- some of the best moments of the series- but after that, the story started to drag a bit for me. There was still plenty of romance and action but it was missing the danger and uncertainty elements. It picked up at the end, though.

How did I not know that this was more than a trilogy? Why do I have a horrible book hangover? Where am I?

Used for a free space in #bookspinbingo because I always forget to add my current read to the actual bookspin list. Eesh.

Excellent 3rd installment of the series. I need to grabby hands book 4.

I really love this series!! Can‘t wait for book 4. Lovable characters, tons of romance, action and adventure-packed, a world full of fantasy creatures, less predictable plot than you‘d expect. This particular book felt like it could have been shorter, but I still greatly enjoyed it, nonetheless.

Best in the series yet! Darn cliffhanger ending. I love this world, these characters and.this storyline. If you enjoy modern fantasy with a fierce female lead and red-hot open door, I highly recommend this series!

I just finished the tagged book and the author (though I love her) had the AUDACITY to announce a release of a prequel before finishing this series. Don't mind me I'll just hang out over here on this cliff.

Thanks for the tag @EadieB

EadieB You‘re welcome! Doing a prequel in the middle of a series is enough to make you want to jump off the cliff she left you on! 1y
ShelleyBooksie My friend and I were just talking about this today 1y
mavey The next one's coming March 2022!! I too felt that way when I heard about ASITE the first time, but after meeting Nyktos in TCOGB, think we'll all love the spin off series(JLA Brand of Magic🤩😍) and get even more worked up and frustrated that there are still 5 months more till the next book!! 1y

1. Yes
2. Love this series by Jennifer Armentrout.
3. I am really not.sure about this. Before reading Sarah J. Maas or Jennifer Armentrout, I would have said no open door romance. However, these 2 authors have blown that out of the water and I cannot tell the difference!

1. I‘m a high school librarian so I read tons of YA.
2. The Blood and Ash series by Jennifer L. Armentrout is great. I personally enjoy the audiobooks.
3. A book is YA when it is has at least one teenage protagonist and is mostly told from a teenage perspective.

This was one hell of a wild rollercoaster of emotions and completely unpredictable plot twists. We get so many answers to our questions, but we also have so many more questions (Just like Poppy😉). The plot was amazing as it continued straight from AKOFAF, the romance was much more prominent in this book, and that ending has me wishing I could time travel because I need the next one! Absolutely amazing series so far, I love it so much!

mavey So true!! Wish I could time travel and read all the books in the entire verse in one sitting! 1y

Book #17: The best part of reading this book was reading it in tandem with two of my friends. It was so fun to text about the parts we were at and share the emotions/reactions of reading this book. Parts of the book had me throwing down my kindle, but it definitely delivered in all the areas I expect from this series. It‘s going to be a long wait for book 4!

This definitely starts with a bang and goes out in a bang. This book was so intense and such a rollercoaster. I loved all the sweet moments in this book between Poppy and Cas. There were many twists in this book. Definitely my favorite book of this year.

The_Heeler_Booklife @Mavey I‘m really curious about what we will learn in ASITE and all the crap that is going to go down in book 4. I am really curious how this is actually going to be 6 books. 1y
mavey @The_Heeler_Booklife Me too!! Want to see what all twists and turns JLA is going to bring about! Though I'm guessing we'll only be getting one Blood And Ash book a year but definitely 2 books in the same universe every year. Yeah! After meeting Nyktos, I wanna know more about his story too! Gosh a really good series! Do you have any recommendations for the book hangover?❤ 1y
The_Heeler_Booklife @Mavey yeah I‘m thinking we will get one FBAA book a year, but two from the same universe a year. Ummmm, if you haven‘t read any Sarah J. Maas, I would recommend her. Lore by Alexandra Bracken is great, Layla or Verity by Colleen Hoover, I heard the Bargainer series is great. 1y
mavey Thinking of trying Cresent City or Lore! Thank you!❤VERITY! That story imploded and then completely exploded my mind!! Isn't CoHo the queen of first lines! Just knows how to get the attention of readers! And Layla, I loved the realms concept and my heart was definitely racing that last chapter, but I felt a lil of CoHo's wow magic missing..My favorite is All Your Perfects! If you haven't already, do give it a try! Happy Reading! 1y
The_Heeler_Booklife @Mavey I‘ve only read Verity and Layla by her, but I totally enjoyed them. I think you can‘t go wrong with CC or Lore. Just know with CC it is very slow for the first two hundred pages due to world building. 1y
mavey @The_Heeler_Booklife Thank you, I'll be sure to keep that in mind! ❤ 1y

This 5Star Rating has been a foregone conclusion! It did feel a lil slowpaced in the middle but the gripping start and the explosive ending were everything! Hair-raising revelations! Chilling quoteworthy moments! More Poppy and Cas! Jen has crafted one helluva riveting story. AND IT IS ONLY JUST BEGINNING!!

mavey My fear with anticipating this book was finishing it super-quick and having to wait for Book4 for a whole year after getting to read the first 3 in short-interval releases within almost a year! Can't believe we'll only get to meet the gang in 2022!! 1y

Okay so i‘m only on page 82 of TCOGB but I just wanna say that when everyone was fan girling over Alastir I always perferred Delano for background Wolvens. Cause obviously Kieran is my favorite. & i‘m coming here now just to say I was right. Alastir betrayed them which we all knew and Delano comes to save the day.
