The final book about Zoey Daniels (23, though she is technically a year older) and a ruthless dark fae, a Wanderer (a jumper; they can blink in and out of time and space, travel anywhere they want in the world in an instant) named Ryker. The couple, a monkey, pirate and an ex are all hunted. This make things hard as Zoey is determent to save the people she cares about who have been captured. She also wants to bring down DMG. And of course, there

Normally my reviews are longer (yes longer than this one lol) because I over think. However, the less I say the more intrigued you will be. The series has ended and I am parts excited by how perfectly written the story played out and sad because these are characters I've grown to love.

When an author can depict an emotion with words that make you feel all of what is being said, then they've not only done their job, but did it well. This is how I feel about SMB's From Burning Ashes. None of the c

Ok I loved the Darkness series but I think I loved this one more! Hot damn I need a Ryker of my own! Now on to The Lightness series!
I honestly didn't even think to connect this series with Brown's other series. They take place in the same world, at nearly the same time. And I didn't realize it until Zoey mentioned a girl with different colored eyes. Didn't even realize it when Lars made an appearance. I'm ashamed of myself :(

Pretty good overall. Loved Ryker. Loved Ryker and Zoey together. Loved Croygen. Zoey was pretty kickass too. Not gonna lie, Ember and Eli will always come first in my heart, but Ryker and Zoey gave them

Let's start with saying I gave book 1: 5 stars and book 2 and 3: 4 stars.
So this means that in my opinion this conclusion had a HUGE drop.
I'm definitely disappointed.

I think over all this series is a good one but book 4...I'll make points:
1)the writing: I always thought it was a bit dramatic, with a lot of similitudes (really not needed because: Ehi, the reader is not an idiot you can trust me to know basic things thank you). It was also tiring because the time of the story was again and again s

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.

Heart-stopping, intense and mind consuming, this book...this series have completely over taken me from the start.

The characters were everything you'd want them to be, plus more. You fell in love with them and hated them. You felt their emotions running through the pages while they went through complete hell.

The plot...amazing!!!! I have never read anything like this before and I loved every single minute of it.

Stacey, you have a new fan. I have fallen in love with you

Read the whole review on English and Croatian here:

The plot of the whole series is unbelievably unpredictable and it doesn't let us rest. We are constantly bombarded with a sexual tension, emotional pain, the funniest and the most bizarre images. Perfect!
The ending leaves me with a few questions and even with a hope of a possible spinoff novel. Hmmm...

That was a magnificent ending and probably one of my favorite epilogues. But also, I love how the author left it open enough so she could revisit the series if she wanted to.

Best book of the series by far.

This book was the perfect, most beautiful ending to this series! I am on such a book high right now! This is now, hands down, one of my all-time favorite book series. My head is such a jumble of thoughts right now that I don't know where to start.

So let's start with the plot. It's insanely good, okay? And the pacing of the story is just perfect. I really love the way that things played out with regard to the plot. The events and obstacles

WOW!! that was a really fun ride!! The whole series was great. I enjoyed the ending very much. There were some minor flaws that happened in all the books but all of them were still great. Despite the fact that Ryker and Zoey turning into a mushy couple, I didn't mind. I really hoped to read more about Zoey and Ryker... as well as other characters like Amara. We were introduced to some interesting casts in this last book like the Unseelie King and the Seelie Queen. I really wanted to read more ab ...more

That was fanfreakingtastic. Everything comes together not in any way I would have thought. I kind of loved that. It wasn’t predictable. And I love how strong Zoey is. But I loved that she wasn’t strong too.

I don’t know if that makes sense but it does to me. So yeah.

Sprig and his goat Pam totally crack me up. I can’t even with this monkey/sprite. He steals the show! I want a monkey.. Ok maybe not because it wouldn’t talk like Sprig.

4.5/5 stars!! Wow I can't believe it's over! I do have to say, I'm a tiny bit disappointed. Many intriguing points and avenues were left for resolution in the epilogue. I honestly think it could have made another book! (And yes, I do want more of this couple). I didn't think I would enjoy this series as much as I did. It has great lessons and some eye opening moments. The characters struggled with some of the same issues as many people have (even in a fictional world). Seeing how they worked thr ...more

this took a really bloody and nice twist....
To me, this was between a 4.0 and a 4.5. The previous book, Across the Divide, was a little bit slower than the first two books, but From Burning Ashes totally turned things around. There was a ton of action, lots of suspense, plenty of romance, and Brown’s trademark since of humor. It was a great end (?) to a great series.

At the end of Across the Divide, Zoey and Croygen found Lexi and Ryker. Croygen escaped with Lexi, and when Zoey approached Ryker, he tried to choke her to death because

From Burning Ash is non stop action from page one till the explosive end. Zoey, Ryker and the gang have spent months on the run that they finally decided to stop running and fight the forces bent on destroying them and the entire world. Zoey and Ryker are ready to burn it all done to end DMG and Valdik reign of terror. As the race to save fae and human alike Zoey and Ryker might have to sacrifice all to defeat the evil at the door.

Stacey Marie Brown has been one of my favorite authors since I read her first book. I am sad to see another great series end, but excited to see what she has in the works for the next one.

I have truely grown to love Zoey, Ryker, and Sprig. And not to forget the other awesome characters along the way. They all feel like family.

Sprig is one of my favorite characters. I could always count on him to liven up the book with his love of honey, and his stuffed animal 'love" Pam. If there was trouble, yo

Holy monkey-sprites, the emotions! I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I growled, I swooned, I got hungry for any and all things honey-coated, and I eventually sighed in contentment (and I highlighted a ridiculous number of lines). In typical Stacey Marie Brown format, this book continues the Collector series' fast-paced, epic adventure with shocking surprises, devastating twists, hot romance, dark mysteries, heart-pounding action and slathered-with-honey hilarity.

I love this series. I love Zoey and Ryker together. I loved all of this book. I don't go into this type of book looking for literary genius, I just want a story that captivates me and takes me away to a new world. This series delivers in a big way. I kept my kindle app opened on my phone and utilized every spare moment I had to check in with Zoey and the gang. I love when a story can pull you in that way. Make the world fade away while you have one crazy adventure after another. Stacey Marie Bro ...more

Zoey and Rykers story comes to a close in this fourth installment to the Collectors series. I have loved this series from the first page. All the action and intensity promises a story much more than a simple romance between the opposing characters. I was anxious to get started on this story as I have been every other installment, but I must be honest that this one took me a bit longer to finish. I have been a fan of Zoey strong dependent character, but I really felt like she found herself in too ...more

I told myself when I received the newsletter about this early release I was not stopping until I was done!! I a couple hours later I'm done and Stacey did not disappoint with this series. Going into this book I thought zoey is a cat with 9 lives but sometimes even a cat can't continually cheat death. From burning ashes had me in a trance all day I hung onto every page. But at times it knew some things as if I just knew what Stacey had in mind for this last installment. I had three to five I knew ...more

Once again Stacey Marie Brown has amazed me. I love this series (and the Darkness series) because it is full of adventure, excitement, and edgy romance. Zoey isn't a damsel in distress, she will smile while kicking your ass and the love and loyalty she has for her "family" is a force to be reckoned with. I loved how the book ended, it gave you a glimpse into the future but is not a cliffhanger. There is, however, enough information that leaves you craving more. This series blended beau

I couldn't get enough of this entire series and I will be looking for the author's other novels. Stacey Marie Brown has a way with words, with story telling. She ripped my heart out a few times and I sat in my chair staring into space for a long time just thinking about the ending of it all, so greatly it had affected me. I felt like the characters were part of me. I am a 34 year old woman and I even bought myself a stuffed This is a series you will want to read.

Okay, so I truly loved this series, but out of all the books this was my least favorite. It was still very action packed, but I felt like I was missing some of the story. The ending though was amazing!! I was so happy to see (view spoiler) I was also happy to see that (view spoiler) made it to the end and Croygen might end up with her!!! The series was so good at least one of my top ten! Totally going to read it again and again ...more
