In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate.

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…

The Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny, #1)My Review:
The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost

Jeaniene Frost debuts a brand new and completely original series, Broken Destiny, with The Beautiful Ashes. This is the story of Ivy, a woman who believes she is hallucinating her entire life only to find out the monsters she sees are real and are vying to control our world.

When the monsters come calling, Ivy finds herself fighting for her life. But then an expected hero comes to Ivy’s rescue. Adrian was raised with full knowledge of the spirit realms but when push comes to shove, will he betray Ivy or help her.

The Beautiful Ashes was a non-stop, action packed, mind twisting storyline. Frost masterfully builds this world within worlds with so many twists and turns I’m still reeling. This isn’t a light read but a highly complex plot with deep and dark secrets. I know Frost will slowly reveal these intricacies, shocking us all with each reveal. I can’t wait for the next installment to see where we are taking next.

I received this ARC copy of The Beautiful Ashes from Harlequin HQN in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 26, 2014.
