Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance?
Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.
Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.
But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.
I AM UTTERLY SPEECHLESS!! Absolutely loved the first book, From Blood and Ash, but y’all this book is even BETTER than the first one! I feel like I can’t even form real sentences.
Ok, I’m done rocking in the corner now. Hopefully I can get my feelings down before I start rocking again. Poppy is even more badass in this book than the last one. She may be one of my favorite book characters ever. She’s overcome some serious shit in this book. The relationship between her and Hawke is straight fire. I straight up love Kieran! He’s freaking hilarious and fiercely protective. I want to grab him up and squeeze him! *heart eyes*
The plot was so freaking good that I can’t stop thinking about it. I’ve got so many theories it’s making me a crazy person. The ending blew that last book out of the water by a long shot. I really want to scream from the roof tops how much this book took my breath away. It gave me anxiety (in a good way), made me laugh several times, had me saying WTF at least six different times.
There is a part, no spoilers, that was sooo freaking erotic I can’t stop thinking about it!
I’ve probably told a million people to read FB&A. This book just hammers home how amazing this freaking series truly is. READ THIS BOOK! If you love fantasy, sexy time, stabbing (LOL) and just straight up amazing storytelling….this book is for you!! Five stab worthy stars from me!
