ARC Review : Ash Princess

Yeah I Can't Believe it either, i'm actually posting. I won't even go into the reasons why , just that i got the urge to visit my blog today. I have read some good books this year( more than one 5 star review ikr!?) and today's review is one of them.

Ash Princess #1

Fantasy/Young Adult

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered before her eyes. On that day, the Kaiser took Theodosia's family, her land, and her name. Theo was crowned Ash Princess--a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisoner.

For ten years Theo has been a captive in her own palace. She's endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser and his court. She is powerless, surviving in her new world only by burying the girl she was deep inside.

Then, one night, the Kaiser forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword. And power isn't always won on the battlefield.

For ten years, the Ash Princess has seen her land pillaged and her people enslaved. That all ends here.


First, all my thanks to Netgalley for letting me read an early copy and i will be definitely buying a copy as well, the cover and blurb drew me in but i was still hesitant as i started reading,

OMGGGG WAS SURPRISED AT HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS. The characters , the same old plot of many treasured books i love. Maybe because the lead character wasn’t too perfect and i loved reading about her pain and seeing how damaged she is. Besides the fact that this plot has been done many times i guess the character is what kept me reading all the way through.  So i love strong characters and Theo was a fave, i love her hardness but also the bouts of softness. She was molded into stone by years of abuse so naturally she would want revenge, I expected her to feel remorse at the end when she learned the tidbit of truth that could of maybe changed things but no she didn’t and I actually cheered. The Romance, i don't know it's actually not a big deal for me and that's surprising for me because in every trilogy i look for the romance and the world building and none of that stood out  so it's a testament to laura's writing of this character. I will definitely read the sequel just because of how it ended.

5 Stars for me
