Very enjoyable and unusual SFR read.
My only thing I would have changed is killed the h's ex much sooner, yes I know we wouldn't have had a proper villain but still that should have been done much sooner.
And then of course more focus on the romance would have been fine.
But still spunky space faring h and hot devoted phoenix-like H. Whats not to like?

4-1/2 stars

I enjoyed this Science Fiction Romance. It hits the high points of what I consider the necessary criteria for Sci Fi Romance.

First good world building. I could visualize the settings in which the action took place. There were two planets involved in addition to the ships. The first planet was a desert planet. The description was clear and the dangers were clearly described and pertained to the story. The populated planet where the ma
From the Ashes combines two of my favorite genres – romance and science fiction. So I knew when I got it, I would probably like it. I was not disappointed. There is plenty of action for me (and, no, not just the sexual kind!!!) and a nice mix of romance and science fictional things.

I was hooked when her ex shows up and demands Calista’s cargo. Incidentally, her cargo is our hero, Asher (he was hatched!). His extras are particularly interesting. I liked the revelations – how her ex had sold her
It was a really entertaining read and I absolutely enjoyed reading it, but the story lacked somehow.

Calista is pretending to be a strong woman, because she doesnt want others to see how badly hurt she is because of her ex-husband. He treated her very badly and wanted to sell her(!), which led me to the question how stupid and vulnerable a woman can actually be, but then I was pleased when I found out that she payed him back in a really bloody and satisfying way.
Then she meets Asher and gets to s

This is a good book which did keep me reading it till the end. I enjoyed the story. It was entertaining and fun. The by play between the characters was amusing. If you are into intergalactic travel and bodies with extra appendages, then this is the book for you.
Review by Noushie

Calista is a self made woman, rising out of the ashes of her life, after near miss into slavery by her ex-husband. She has created a life for herself as a top courier pilot. She is a strong woman, but a damaged one. She
Surprisingly Sweet, Satisfyingly Smutty (4 stars)

Calista hasn't had the greatest luck in love, her ex-husband sold her into slavery! But she's not one to take that lying down and once she's back on her feet she's back to working as a courier in her ship, Doppelganger. Having had a few too many bad surprises in her life she figures she can open the crate holding her latest cargo, find out what's secreted away inside and have time to pack it back up with no sign of tampering before she gets to her
Paranormal Kiss
From the Ashes by Maree Anderson is an erotic sci-fi story about a human space courier, Calista and an alien Phoenixae named Asher who she unwittingly becomes bonded to. The story is unique and holds your attention. The problem is that is lacks depth. You are told that the characters love each other but you don’t see it happen. The relationship is suddenly there, as appose to gradually building. There is a lot of internal dialog instead of actions. This leaves you feeling a slight disconnect to ...more
