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.… (meer)

DNF The Beautiful Ashes at 57%.

The Beautiful Ashes is book one in the Broken Destiny series by Jeaniene Frost. It’s a Paranormal New Adult book. I’m a fan of (The Night Huntress Series and World). Those characters are funny, engaging, and memorable. Even if you hate them, you still love to hate them, and they also come alive in the writing. That being said this is not like that series.

Ivy and Adrain are not memorable, really non of the characters are in this book. They don’t come alive and they aren’t even all that likable. I couldn’t stand the back and forth, back and forth, blah blah that Ivy and Adrain did. I was over it the first time it began. I couldn’t decide if they where teenagers or young adults in their 20’s. I also couldn’t stand all the time Ivy spends on thinking how attractive Adrain is. It got annoying. The world and plot where semi-interesting, but the characters got in the way. As for the cover it shows a couple on the front that are much older then the two leads in this book. It’s kinda deceiving.

I just couldn’t finish The Beautiful Ashes. I kept putting this book down and picking something else up to read, then coming back, and then repeating putting it down, coming back. I finally said that’s it.

The Beautiful Ashes was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

non ci posso fare niente, ho un debole per la frost.
Il trope light vs darkness è un po' vecchiotto e la trama era banale in certi punti, ma lo sviluppo dei personaggi è sempre il suo punto forte, per quanto la protagonista sia assolutamente idiota. ho alte aspettative per il secondo volume. ( )

So I loved this book and now I can't wait for #2! The characters were well developed and the story explored both their motivations, although I'm looking forward to getting to know Adrian better (maybe in the next book - fingers crossed). Jeaniene does a fabulous job of "painting" the landscapes of the realms and I could almost feel the cold when Ivy talked about it. Brava, Ms. Frost, keep of the great work! ( )

Adrian and Ivy are the last of their line, their fates are intertwined as Ivy seeks to save her kidnapped sister from demons.

I like her writing style but the story was a little hokey. Not as good as Cat and Bones and the other vampire stories. The historical and demonic aspects were too much for my suspension of disbelief.
