Let me start by saying that a few chapters into the book, I was fearful that it would take the classic formula that a lot of novels seem to take and the two main characters, obviously enemies, would find some common ground on which to fall in love and blah, blah, blah.
How wrong I was. And for that I couldn’t be happier.
Kindling Ashes does a fabulous job of telling the tale of war between two sides, and the feelings of betrayal and anger and helplessness that follow. Instead of coddling her characters, Harris thrashes them and puts them through so much that by the end of the novel, your eyes are misty and your heart aches for them. What brilliant characters they were to be put through the grinder.
It was so refreshing to follow Giselle and Corran through their very unique adventure, making you question your own terms of loyalty, and a wonderful addition to the fantasy genre.
