When flying monsters break through the veil into her world, Mackenzie Scott has nothing left to lose. Her brother has been taken, her future has vanished, and all that remains is a desperate need for revenge. After discovering the breach the creatures used as a gateway, Mackenzie devises a plan to stop them, whatever the cost.
When she finds an injured stranger in the street, he just might be the key she needs to succeed. What Mackenzie doesn't know is that this stranger isn't the helpless boy he appears to be. He's one of the monsters. And he's got plans of his own.
Thrown into a dying city in another realm, Mackenzie is powerless to get back. With the gateway closing, time is not on her side. But the stranger is, and if they can escape execution, this girl and her monster might be able to save both their worlds.

by Melissa Wright

King of Ash and Bone (Shattered Realms #1)Two realms separated by a veil of secrecy and if that veil is breached it will mean the end of both worlds. And. It. Is. Happening. NOW.

Mackenzie’s life has been full of turmoil and loss. All she had was her brother and the monsters flying through the sky have taken him and she wants him back. The city is in chaos, people are being killed or taken as these beasts fly through a hole in the sky and nowhere is safe. Having seen this breach, Mackenzie will stop at nothing to seek revenge.

When she finds an injured young man on the streets, little does she know he is so much more than she thinks, little did she know he was one of “them.” Together they will seek a way to stop the slaughter, close the breach and save both worlds. Will they succeed or will they each find themselves trapped in another realm fighting for their lives, once again?

Melissa Wright slam-dunks us directly into her tale of death and destruction. KING OF ASH AND BONE is non-stop chaos and one will be hard-pressed not to get caught up in the action from page one. For those tired of heroines who are either wishy-washy or angst-filled or even over-the-top action figures, Mackenzie is a breath of fresh air. She has no super powers, but she has determination, grit and the will to succeed against the odds. Hunter is a little mysterious, he is slow to reveal exactly who he is and at no time did he outshine Mackenzie!

Completely entertaining, this one will have you cheering from your reading chair! Melissa Wright has penned a tale to fall into and characters to remember.
