A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer L Armentrout

Thank you to Social Butterfly Pr for the ARC

This is the first book in the Flesh and Fire series.

Born shrouded in the veil of the Primals, a Maiden as the Fates promised, Seraphena Mierel’s future has never been hers. Chosen before birth to uphold the desperate deal her ancestor struck to save his people, Sera must leave behind her life and offer herself to the Primal of Death as his Consort.

However, Sera’s real destiny is the most closely guarded secret in all of Lasania—she’s not the well protected Maiden but an assassin with one mission—one target. Make the Primal of Death fall in love, become his weakness, and then…end him. If she fails, she dooms her kingdom to a slow demise at the hands of the Rot.

Sera has always known what she is. Chosen. Consort. Assassin. Weapon. A specter never fully formed yet drenched in blood. A monster. Until him. Until the Primal of Death’s unexpected words and deeds chase away the darkness gathering inside her. And his seductive touch ignites a passion she’s never allowed herself to feel and cannot feel for him. But Sera has never had a choice. Either way, her life is forfeit—it always has been, as she has been forever touched by Life and Death.

I was so excited to receive an ARC of A Shadow of the Ember and read more from Jennifer especially in the From Blood and Ash world

I love Seraphina and Ash’s story and how they found each other as well as interacting throughout the story. Ash is a character and I loved how he holds himself throughout.

I love learning more of the world especially from a different time from the Blood and Ash series.

The world is as big as the Blood and Ash series with similar locations but also different at the same time.

Being able to meet the drakens that we were introduced in The Crown and Gilded Bones was fantastic along with how Sera interacts with them.

The twists towards the end of the book were interesting and the ending made me want to reread From Blood and Ash again.

I can’t wait to see where the Flesh and Fire series goes.
