It's so sad. I LOVE details... BUT! God, the only reason I finished reading this book is because it was the last, last (the previous book was supposed to be the last too) book of the series. SURPRISE, turns out it's not the last book of the series this time either. It's like John Farnam... he just keeps coming back for 'one last concert'.

I really did struggle to finish it. It was excessively convoluted, and fairly boring with it. There was a high confusion factor because of all the interchangin

Oh, my holy hell. I had tried to write this review just after I finished reading the book, but I was too much of a mess, my thoughts jumbled, and I'm pretty sure I would've let out more than one spoiler. So here I am, a couple days later, and my mind is still reeling over the events that took place in this book, the lines crossed, and even where it was cut off ( I mean what the heck Rebecca Ethington!! ) That last book better be coming out sooner rather than later.

I read the entire series. If they are not read in order you will be lost. I read them in order and was still lost. The plot for the series is great and the characters are great. Although I have never read a book in which the main character screams so much. Lol every single thing was so dragged out. The main character was called silny which was supposed to mean most powerful and I didn't see that through any of the books. Most of the time Even though I liked Jocelyn, Wyn was definitely the toughe ...more

After a read Dawn of Ash, I thought about how much has happened since we began this journey with Jocelyn, Ilyan, Wyn, Ryland and Edmund. I did not think this series would be so big, be so heartbreaking, have so many changes and still be so compelling. I was totally team Ryland in the beginning and could not imagine them not as a couple. I was heartbroken when their relationship was completely destroyed. I nearly quit this series because of it. I'm glad I stuck with it, and it was because of Wyn ...more

I felt like I was watching a movie! An epic action/ Fantasy/ thriller movie.. With a bit of romance because it was not consuming in this one! But I really wanted more of it a bit to lessen the sadness but I get it.. It's a time of war and danger is around the corner! .. 👍
The war is finally making sense a bit with Major plot twists..

I really enjoyed reading this one especially with the different POVs.. It lets you understand the story line better.. We now see each characters prospectives and per

This installment of the series was just full of emotions… Jos is struggling to understand her sights that are all over the place and leaving her struggling with what is real vs what is sight. I LOVED that during this book that you get to see different sides of the same fight. I believe you get a more well-rounded story this way as you get a glimpse of everyone trying to play the battlefield to their advantage.
Watching Wyn struggle with her past (and present) demons in this story was difficult.

Did not like Burnt Devotion as it was just a retelling of the story from Wyn's POV. Dawn of Ash at least had new scenes, but most of them were confusing. There was a lot of screaming from Jocelyn and time spent in white space, for many characters. There have been quite a few times in this series spent in the mind's of the characters and I have found that most of the time it is very confusing/hard to follow.

POV changes were numerous and I felt there should have been more from Jocelyns'. I also h

Oh man I love this series and Dawn of Ash has been one of my favorites to date. I love the characters so much! I feel like some of the different relationships were reinforced in this book and I am really loving it. I can't wait to see where the story goes from here!! As usual, I will have to hang on the edge of my seat until the next book comes out! ...more

In this the sixth outing of this series I find myself growing weary. The series is no closer to being resolved than it was at the end of book 4 and several of the "surprises" weren't so surprising. I'm not sure that I am going to see the series to the end. ...more

Dawn of Ash (Imdalind Series Book 6)

OMG 😮 juts when I think it CANNOT get any better !!!! The author goes and does it!!! Yes the POV’s does get confusing at times, but the book is a page turner, and yes some people find it a turn off, but if you are truly invested, then you will enjoy this series as I can’t put it down!!!!

If you do not want spoilers please don’t read beyond this point!!!!

Joclyn can't decipher sight from reality because Sain told her she broke the sights, and she created a Zlom

I definitely feel like there was a great pace through the middle of the book. I was fully invested in everyone. I do wish that there were more interaction and plan of action set in for the Chosen Children. It feels like they were so isolated and in the dark, like nothing was being brought up to them and that made it all the easier for Sain to really dig his nails into them. I appreciate the slow burn of Ryland and Risha. I think that this progress makes sense. I do appreciate the s

And that it’s for me.

I gave the first 3 books a better rating but this is where it started to crash and burn for me. I liked the characters and loved that it was a clean love story. As a mom, I would let my teens read this series. However, I just finished book 7 and don’t think I will even bother to read book 8. Somewhere between book 3and 5, the series just lost me. I found my self skimming chapters and I skipped one whole book. I think I didn’t like all the povs. It just was too much. I had a

A true disappointment

I was really looking forward to this book but it was just a huge mess for me! I felt that it was too repetitive going back and forth between characters. Everything was just bounced around too much! A bunch of unorganized thoughts. Felt like her thoughts were everywhere just wanting to rush everything into this book. I skipped through most of the chapters and it still didn't get anywhere until the end which still ended poorly. Not worth the time skipping through chapters spen

I am so completely disappointed in this book. I loved this series. I could laugh and cry all within a few pages of each other and then I'm not sure what happened but through changing perspectives of characters and whatnot the depth of the relationships was lacking. The story felt forced. I didn't laugh or cry. I just wanted it to be over really. I'm really sad that I feel that way too because I loved this series. ...more

Now I would have read this a lot quicker if I stuck to my main book rule-read one book at a time!!!

Another thrilling book in the Imdalind series! The twists in this plot weren’t even seen or felt until they happened!

Rebecca Ethington has made a great continuation and continues to develop these characters in a magnificent way. I was definitely on the edge of my chair by the end of this book and I can’t wait to continue!
I received an eARC of this book from Lady Amber's Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

Please note: if you are new to the series, this review has minor, unavoidable spoilers to previous books in the series. I highly suggest reading those prior to this review….unless you like spoilers…than by all means keep reading

So much was revealed in this book. A more thorough understanding of the role Sain played in everything from the beginning is explained.
This book reveals how crazy Sain is. It was shocking to know if everything he has done.
Ilyan and jocyln go through some.devastating times.
Can't wait to read more and find out what happens next.

Busy book

This book was far to busy . But it's needed to understand the outcome. Very point of view given from everyone .I almost stopped reading half way through. But I kept going and glad I did. Sain is a funny one and a whole new story has unfolded . Nothing is the same story line from the first book now. It's done a 180.

I like that the female and male character are both strong and capable. This was another win for me in the Imdalind series.

A brazen new world

This book sets everything you think you know of Imdalind on its ear. It is a new beginning but a harsh one. The story leaves you hungry for more.

I hate to say it....but my initial feeling upon beginning this book was a sense of disconnect due to the length of time between each book and how long this series has gone on. What once felt like a fluid moving story through the first 3 books as I was able to read them back to back, three books that really drew me in and captivated me, now has begun to feel to me, through the last couple of books specifically, as just being drug out and not really connecting

Characters: As this series comes to an end the story is splintered into more than one perspective. In this book we have Joclyn, fighting to discover what's going on with her magic and how to take control of it before the whispers and rumors about her come true. We have Wyn, haunted by her daughter and trying to overcome the pain and hurt emanating from the piece of the Soul's Blade in her possession. Sain is pulling strings on both sides so that his version of the future will come to pass

Ugh. This series is killing me. I loved where it started and where it was headed, but just no. This was slow and boring and I am so tired of reading about hundreds of people being murdered in different and the same ways. Too much of the dialogue is just people saying, calling, crying or shouting someone’s name. 🤦🏾‍♀️ I’m sad because Jocelyn is supposed to be all-powerful but is always being hurt by people less powerful than Ilyan (who she constantly beats in practice), she always gets hurt. It d ...more

First I just want to say that I was not a fan of Burnt Devotion. I didn’t like how Ethington brought the book back in time yet again. This meant that we had to reread the same events that we had read in the last book, the only difference was that this time we were reading from a different point of view. I didn’t like Wyn’s point of view, it was dark and depressing; I didn’t like Ryland’s point of view, it was too crazy; and frankly there was not enough of Joclyn’s point of view.
