Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Burning Ash
Series: Forgotten Brotherhood / Fury Unleashed #3
Author: N.J. Walters
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, Entangled: Amara
This is an intriguing addition to this action packed, paranormal, romantic suspense series. Although this is the third book in the series and characters from the earlier books also appear in this one, I believe this book could be enjoyed when read as a standalone.
An anonymous email from an untraceable source results in Asher, a member of the Forgotten Brotherhood and a unique version of a vampire, investigating the event he’s been alerted to. He never anticipated a vampire hunter, Jo Radcliffe, being there – and certainly hadn’t expected to be attracted to her or to discover that she had a similar anonymous email. Someone is endeavouring to manipulate them, but just who and why? If that’s not enough, just what will Jo do when she discovers he is also a vampire?
This is an intriguing romantic suspense involving several different types of paranormal characters. It is a suspense filled romance where danger lurks where you least expect it and love will find a way! The characters are well developed, and love has certainly changed several from the earlier stories – especially Maccus! Jo is a feisty, determined twenty-nine year old who is used to being independent and alone. Asher is one of the oldest vampires though he’s also unlike any other vampire in many ways. It was great to learn their histories and see how their relationship develops in these dramatic circumstances. The story is fast paced, engaging and totally enthralling. I really enjoyed reading it and hope that we’ll be learning more about Bjorn and have him finding his soul mate.
Thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have read voluntarily and honestly reviewed.
No one is more surprised than Asher, one of the oldest vampires on Earth, that he’s attracted to vamp hunter Jo Radcliffe. She’s smart, a talented slayer, and she’s gorgeous. Something about her pulls at him, like no one ever has before. For a man, whose name strikes fear in everyone—this is something new and intriguing. And quite possibly deadly, if she discovers his secret.
Jo has two things in common with the handsome Asher—they are both slayers and someone is messing with them in a very-much-trying-to-kill-them way. She’s not so happy about joining forces with a dude she doesn’t know. But he’s sexy as hell and really good at his job as one of the Forgotten Brotherhood, whose business it is to execute misbehaving paranormals.
She knows she’s bait in a larger plot to harm Asher and the Brotherhood. And there is nothing he won’t do, no line he won’t cross, to keep her safe—which may be the weakness that destroys them both.
