Falling Ashes (Ashes to Ashes #2)
by Annie Anderson

Annie Anderson is an another author booklovers should keep an eye on, her writing and stories are captivating. This is her second book in her Phoenix series. Falling Ashes is just as good as the first one.

Ash and Mena’s story is full of passion, enough of twist and turns. You get really involved in and wanting to know what will happen next.

I found the characters to be all lovable, I really like the interaction between them all. I found myself ent

Fast and exciting read. This is the story of twin sisters Aurelia and Mena. Both Phoenix, both dangerous. In a world inhabited by humans, Phoenix and Wraiths try to stay under the radar. There is a war brewing and sides are drawn. Mena is truly mated to Asher in the first ever Phoenix, Wraith mating. Can't wait for the next book

Story of Mena, the sister of Aurellia and the oldest living Aegis, was found after years of torture and pain. She was missing and in seclusion for over 50 years and has to learn how to survive. Asher is the Guardian to the ailing king and a wraith. As he is bound, when the king dies, so does he. The first moment he heard her voice he knew she was his mate. Now, to convince her of that.

In Falling Ashes, we finally meet Aurelia's sister Mena, who has been held captive by the evil Iva for the last fifty years. Mena has been broken to the point where she no longer feels the pain inflicted on her body. But her mind is strong and her spirit stronger still, if only she could overcome the guilt that plagues her life and heal the scars left on her soul from her heartbreaking past.

While recuperating, she meets handsome Guardian

They believe they have done away with Iva. However not everyone does believe that Iva is truly gone. Aurelia and Rhys have brought Mena to the wraiths. They are helping Aurelia with overthrowing Iva and now are helping to make sure things get back to the way they belong. Then Mena meets a wraith named Asher, he is one of the Kin ...more

All right, I need to thank Andie Anderson for allowing me a copy of Falling Ashes to read in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy FA? Hell to the yes! Every word had me on the edge of my seat. Like literally. It also got yelled at a few times as I went through.

When we meet Mena, Ari's twin sister, she's been abused, locked away for the last fifty years and feeling like she can't be trusted. Her Aegis has been the one saving grace. She's been able to fight agai

When I read Scattered Ashes (Book 1), my love for Paranormal Romance (PNR) was at an all time high. If I am honest I did read a few more PNR books after finishing this, whilst patiently waiting for Falling Ashes. Now Falling Ashes is here and I am once again immersed into the world of the supernatural, reacquainting myself with my favourite “other-world” characters.

With focus on new characters, the backdrop of this story is a continuation from Scattered Ashes, it is a solid story line and full o

Another really good book by Annie Anderson! I have been waiting to see what happens next. Thankfully I do and Sparks fly literally in this paranormal/fantasy world! This story is about Mena Constantine “the last living full-blooded Aegis and rightful leader of the Phoenixes.” & Asher Crane, he is the King’s Guardian. The King is dying and as the guardian of the king he will die too. I will let you read the synopsis because the author does a much better job than I will.

I read the first book in the Ashes to Ashes series when it came out and I remembered that I found it hard to keep track of who was who and what was what, so I was glad I decided to reread Scattered Ashes before starting Falling Ashes. Otherwise, I would have been lost.
But after saying all that, I’m enjoyed rereading Scattered Ashes and I especially enjoyed reading Falling Ashes because I got to read what happened next in this terrific series.
My favourite genre is paranormal and I love escaping t

This story…what can I say…it grabbed me like no other, and from the last page of Scattered Ashes (Book 1), I was left with extreme anxiety, wanting to know what happens next. We finally meet Aurelia’s sister, Mena, who’s been trapped in her own personal hell for years, by the evil wench Iva.

Mena’s mind, body and soul have literally been shattered to the point of numbness. She’s carried a heavy burden through all the torture she’s received, yet her spirit continues to fight the good fight. Final

This is the second book in the series of Ashes to Ashes by Annie Anderson. Scattered Ashes is the first book and it needs to be read first to fully understand what is going on in Falling Ashes.

I've been reviewing books for over 3 years and I've only read two author's paranormal books so far. This genre is something I'm not interested in per se but with Annie Anderson writing it she knows how to bring out the characters to you. You can picture these mythical creatures in your head like a wraith

Wow! I absolutely love this Series and I can't wait to read more, so Annie Anderson write faster. Book two in the series picks up right where book one left off. In this book we get to know more about Mena Constantine, who we learned is Aurelia sister and she has powers of her own. She has been released from a 50 year captivity and she is struggling with the memories of her capture. She has secrets that even her sister would be shocked to

I was very excited to read this book by Annie Anderson. I couldn't wait to read more about Mena and see her side of the story. Let me tell you, this book blew me away. Not only did Annie bring a fabulous book, but she also has made me fall in love with her work.
Mena has been held captive for a very long time. And honestly, I was worried she wouldn't be able to recover and find her place in the crazy world she's in. But, not only was I proud of Mena's character, I was rooting for her the entire

I really enjoyed the first in this series and when I realised that the second book would follow Mena, I wasn't sure whether I was disappointed or not. Having read the book, the answer is most definitely not. Although I wanted to read more about Rhys and Aurelia, the relationship between Asher and Mena was a wonderful story in its own right.

I thought that this was more accomplished than book 1. Ms Anderson could have gone in a completely different direction with Mena. She could have been depicted

This is the second book in the series and should be read in order.
Mena is an Aegis, that is a special type of Phoenix with incredible powers. She was kidnapped fifty years ago and has been tortured all through her captivity. She has no faith in her ability to control herself. When her twin sister discovers her she is chained in a cell.
Asher is a wraith, and bodyguard to the king of wraiths. The wraith queen is dying, and her death will cause those linked to her to also die.

I am so very glad that I one clicked this when the preorder came up though because this is definitely one of my top series. I didn't think I could love anyone as much as Ari but Annie came out swinging and brought us Mena, her kick ass strong twin sister.

Mena is an aegis who was taken from her sister Auerlia 50 years before and locked up and tortured by Iva who wanted her power. Now she is free and out to show the world just who she is.

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

Just like the first book, this book is amazing. Falling Ashes continues right after Scattered Ashes. We see Mena in this book. We also get a sense of what she went through while in "Captivity". We also get more background on what is going on. I know that this is a short review, and it really doesn't tell you anything at all, but if I wrote what I really wanted to write, I will be giving away a ton of the book, and that wouldn't be fair to you.

I couldn't wait to read this book and was sad when it ended. The good news is, more is coming. Mena has been held captive for 50 years and had unspeakable things happen to her. Yet, she survived, she's a fighter, like her sister Aurelia who we met in Scattered Ashes, (Ashes to Ashes, book 1). When she meets her soul mate, Asher things become even hotter. As they fight to survive can their love last? I'm anxiously awaiting book 3 in this series. Annie Anderson has made me a lover of paranormal, a ...more
