Goodreads Synopsis

Roxanne Fosch had a perfectly normal life at the age of twelve. Cool, popular, pretty, smart. Her dreams of a perfect, successful and prosperous future seemed well within her grasp.
By the time she was twenty-two she had become a commodity. A fugitive. She was being hunted.
As Roxanne embarks on the dangerous quest to search for half-truths about her past, she discovers she’s not just an abnormal human, but a rarity even among her Fee peers.
She is hunted by scientists, keen to exploit her extraordinary abilities, as well as other beings far more dangerous whose plans for her she cannot fathom.

Disclaimer: I received an arc of this book from the author, but all my thoughts and opinion are honest and my own.

My Take

Action packed. That’s the one thing I noticed from the word go. Literally kept me at the edge of my seat wondering, is this it? Is it happening now?
I loved the characters, the world building is fantastic, the writing is amazing. I fell in love with the protagonist, Roxanne. She shows so much strength and resilience and it’s very much admirable.

It’s really important to read The Curse if you want to understand Heir of Ashes more. The whole premise of the book stems there.

Now, this book would have been a 5 star read for me, everything is great, but the plot was really disappointing. There’s so much happening but why it’s happening, I don’t know. It’s a story with no ending basically and to be honest that annoyed me a lot.

“Trust your gut instinct. Listen to what your senses tell you. They’re more reliable.”

Other than the plot or lack of, I did like the book and I would recommend it if you like action, modern fantasy books.
