I was on the blog tour for this book, stop by my blog to see the full post- https://marriedtobooksreviewsandblog....

Curses and Ash was a thrilling sequel to Coral and Bone in which we continue Halen’s journey in a bid against time to find the controls to her magick and save herself before everything goes out of hand. It was a quick read to get into and follows straight on from the concluding events of the first book, the worldbuilding and adventure was what kept me reading up until the final pag

Halen and Dax have a connection. He is her guardian and she needs his support, but can she trust him with her secrets? There's something Halen is scared to share with anyone. She was supposed to kill Asair, but the voice she's hearing in her head sounds just like him. What Asair is asking of her is something she isn't willing to give and she needs all of her strength to keep him from taking over. How can she get rid of him without being able to ask anyone for help?

This is the long-awaited sequel to Coral & Bone and I have to say, it didn't disappoint!
It took me a while to get through this book because I was battling one of the worst reading slumps I've ever been in. It lasted about two months and it was torture. It wasn't this book's fault at all, my mind just couldn't focus on reading when all it wanted was to go out and socialize. Thankfully, I seem to be leaving that slump behind so I made mysel

Curses and Ash is breathtaking and heart pounding! With this edge of your seat adventure, you will be turning page after page! This one is full of danger, magic, betrayal, and fantastical creatures!

I think I loved this one more than Coral and Bone! It kept the momentum going from book 1 and continued to build off the unique world Tiffany created. There was so much excitement and suspense, and the characters continued to grow from their development in Coral and Bone!

I loved Halen's vulnerability

Just finished this a few hours ago and I just can't breathe!!! So goooood!! Full review to come!

Curses and Ash is even more enthralling than the first book. With magical creatures, edge of your seat action, secrets and betrayal that will break your heart, and danger lurking at every corner, this spellbinding adventure had me holding my breath until the end.

There’s no denying that I’m in love with this enchanting world. Duane beautifully created a wonderful and enticing story that I never want to

Review originally from

In a world where there is a water based realm, a magic based realm and then the earth realm, there was always a balance, until the most ultimate evil was born- A blue moon siren without a guardian. Now that the evil that was Asair has been defeated by another blue moon siren Halen, recovery can occur- but Halen hears a voice that may belong to Asair in her head. He is not be gone like everyone believes, instead he has entered Halen. She

This is a mind trip and in a good way. You don’t know who to trust and who is on the wrong side. Those you think are for good may have been ill-informed and really for darkness. Those who were like this some sacrifice so much for the misinformation and wrong beliefs.

this takes up where the first book leaves off so you do need the first book to understand what is going on. Asair is not what I expected and neither is quinn. Dax saddened me and I hope he sees reason soon. I think the boy has drank

​I received a copy of Curses & Ash from the author in exchange with my honest review .

I really enjoyed reading Coral & Bones , the 1st book in the series. I fell in love with the plot , writing style, and world building . I was expecting the sequel, Curses & Ash, to be like it. It wasn't ; it was much better !! I have no idea Tiffany was able to make a sequel that was so great , compared to the epic start of the series .

Sequels sometimes end up to be a disappointment , but Tiffany was able to br

This is the second book in the Coral & Bone series. I actually reviewed the first book in the series, Coral & Bone, in September 2014 for a blog tour. I was a little late to the game because I didn't realize the second book came out. You can bet I jumped right on it last week!

This series is one of the most creative I have read in a long time. The characters, their names, the mythology . . . it's all beautifully constructed and hypnotizing. Just like the first book in the series, I found myself d

This is the second book in the series and picks up where the first when leaves off. In other words, it's highly recommended to start at the beginning of the series before diving into book two.

Halen has destroyed Asair. . .or maybe not. The Etils' fires are still burning, and the threat to Earth is even greater than before. And the excitement and problems just shoot off from here. This is a packed book on so many levels—fast moving, hidden secrets, unexpected twists, and tons of character dilemma

I recommend this book to all who read the first book CORAL & BONE and who enjoyed it.

In this second instalment of the series, CURSES & ASH is definitely hotter than the first book, I mean by just looking at the cover, it's so Hot! Literally on fire! Yes!

On this Fantastical world made by Tiffany Daune, our protagonist Helen has a problem of her own.

As the ending of book one. all characters though that Asair was defeated already, but instead He's inside at Helen's body. (Pretty awesome plot twist

Curses and Ash picks up right from where Coral and Bone; the first book in the series ended. I really liked the plot in the first book but as it continued it got even better. I was definitely proven wrong with not expecting much from this one.
This book had way more interesting plot twists and much better characters. You got to see a different side of Asair which I really liked and the conversations in the book between Asair and Halen was so entertaining, I was giggling through some of the book b

Saying that this is a spellbinding sequel just does not cover how absolutely amazing this book is. Duane out did herself creating a second book that is not only as good as the first book, but quite possibly out does it. Okay, so maybe it's Coral and Bones equal but there is nothing mediocre about this second book. In fact this book holds its own and shows us all that being second isn't always a bad thing.

I think the biggest thing for the plot in this book was the massive twist that it took. I

Tiffany Duane amazes me again! I fell in love so fast with her first book, Coral & Bone. I was so excited to read Curses & Ash! This book definitely did not disappoint!

After killing Asair, Halen returns and everything is different. Daz can no longer sense her, and she can hear Asair in her head. Asair is talking to her. Halen knows she can't let her friends know, they will kill her. Her mom finds out that Asair is inside of her an

It took me quite a while to write this review upon finishing this book. Not because I lacked the words to describe such a beautifully written sequel but because I have so much to say I wanted to be careful of spoilers. (If you haven read Coral & Bone this may contain spoilers about it)

Frankly there are few times when I feel that the sequel matches the first book, and even fewer times that it surpasses it. This is one of those few times. I am in awe with Ms. Duane and her ability to weave a pictu

Oh man, I'm still shocked with the ending from the last book and this one picks up right where that one ended. A big crazy has happened. Halen has Asair with her. I won't explain because I won't give anything away for those of you who haven't read this series yet, but it's a big deal. It's big trouble. Tage and Ezra and Dax are trying to protect Halen, Catch and Pepper are back at home dealing with the fall out and maybe the bad guys aren't the only bad guys and maybe some of the good guys are b ...more

Fantastic Sequel!

Bang, surprise and thrill through the entire book, and I am happy with how the first book rolled directly into this one without skipping a beat. There are often times when an author can lose sight of how to flawlessly continue the evolution of characters or plots when there's spacing between books, but Ms. Daune did not have that problem!

Halen has won, she destroyed the bad guy, found peace.....the whole shebang.....or so she thought. I love how with the closure that she shoul

See my full review here:

All in all, an interesting fantastical read with deadly creepy mermaids. beautiful sirens and other mythological creatures , filled with twists and turns that will catch you off-guard and leave you wanting more. Recommended for those who don’t mind a different take on mythological creatures.
