What I liked:
As always, Smith delivers a well written and emotional twister of a tale with a rich and culturally diverse background that builds on her universe. And while the longest book of the series so far, I didn't feel that the overall story dragged or got tedious.

What I didn't like:
This just didn't grab me or give me the intense emotional impact of the other books. I think the tension and threats to the characters could all have been cranked up a notch throughout and/or the resolution of t

I've been with this series as long as the author, since it's conception, because, admittedly the author and I are writing partners.

When she introduced Lorin to me, I feel in love. Don't get me wrong, I loved A'yen, but there's something about Lorin that floored me. The whole world in which Lorin lives and moves is fascinating, and Rachel's imagination is left to run wild with this one. Once you open this and begin reading, you're sucked in, rooting for both characters to overcome their conflicts

(Mature Adults 18+) Once again I am blown away & almost speechless! “Hidden In Ashes” is the 5th book from A’yen’s Legacy- an 'out of this world' series (a setting that literally is, and then also figuratively speaking) where each book exceeds the previous 5-star book! **I must point out that this novel is for (Mature Adults 18+) who can handle some graphic parts that include different types of abuse...

I normally don't choose books that are violent, too gritty, or have warnings about abuse, but
An up-front warning - this book is not for the faint of heart, or those unable to deal with abuse, including physical, emotional and sexual. There are some graphic descriptions of abuse: while most action is off-page, it is discussed on-page.

This is, I think one of Smith's gentler novels, but at the same time, she still takes her time taking your heart apart piece by piece - and at one point, she certainly ripped mine to shreds - and then patches it all back together again ready for the end.

Rachel Leigh Smith's "Hidden in Ashes" is the fifth tale in the A'yen's Legacy series. Again, this series takes my breath away. The web is woven more and more masterfully at each step! I love, love, love the mythology and how the markings and cascades work. Sunny and hawt! I hope we get to hear more of their continuing story later. I can't wait to keep reading this series, I hope it never ends! ...more

Rachel Leigh Smith was swept off her feet at the age of six by Magnum, P.I., then again at nine by Frank Hardy. She remembers her favorite romance novels by the hero’s name, so of course she writes romance for the hero lover. She lives in central Louisiana with her family, a half-crazed calico, a ginger tabby lion, and a menagerie of book boyfriends.
