From Flame and Ash has officially made my top ten list of 2019 Young Adult books. Fantasy, angst, suspense, thrills...it has it all. From the first page, I was drawn into a world so captivating, I bumped into a few things because I was walking and reading at the same time. I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this series.

Dark and Light have been at war for so long, most have forgotten why they were split, to begin with. Lyric is the girl who is destined to save them all. She brings

Ohhh, the feeling of finding a phenomenal, fantastical, and utterly addicting new YA world. I LOVED getting to sink my teeth into Lyric's journey in Book 1 of the Elements of Five, and Book 2 was just as engaging and entertaining a read for me. This time, Ms. Ryan jumps right into the guts of the story, though weaves in enough of the backstory to ensure that you have enough information from Book 1 to keep yourself on track with the plot. Lyric is pulled into the Obscurite realm pretty quickly, a ...more

An action packed thrill ride with all the “feels”...

From Flame and Ash takes Lyric on an arduous journey through the Spirit and Lumière Kingdoms. She is really just a babe in this world, most of her new friends are at least two hundred years old. As the Spirit Priestess so much is expected of her, but all she is given as a guide are feelings, nightmares, and a crazy old guy.

As Lyric evolves or comes into her powers we are given a front seat into her mindset and I think she longs to belong to thi

This is book two of Lyric’s story and you should read book one, From Breath And Ruin first. As the storyline picks up, you are once again pulled into this complex world. I find it very easy to like Lyric and feel for her. The situation she finds herself in, her uncertainty, her struggles and the vast amount of emotions she is bombarded with, cause you to sympathize with her because it is simple to imagine yourself in her shoes. This series feature a well developed and engaging world. The charact ...more

The saga continues in book 2 of this page turning story. Lyric has lost so much yet gain abilities she never knew she possessed. As we learn more about this realm there are so many riddles yet to be solved. Easton will protect Lyric and Rhodes and Rosemund also need her. As more chaos ensues Lyric loses more people she cares for and continues to question her role in this endeavor to heal this new normal for her. Can’t wait for the next installment in the saga.

Wow this book needs more than 5 stars! Lyric has been back in the human world for a year training and reading up on the Maison realm. She has nightmares and dreams that really scare and confuse her. When it is time to go back, she is more prepared than she was last time. This part of the story was very intense as she learns more about the Obscurite Kingdom and the the Lumiere. The group she travels with is beset at every turn and not until close to the end do you find out who and what is behind ...more

I am struggling to find all the right words to describe how absolutely amazing this story is. I could not stop reading. If I could just keep saying OMG, I would. Talk about wanting more of this series! This quest to unlock all of Lyric’s elements has us visiting the other kingdoms as well as meeting old and new friends along the way. Can I just say hello Rhodes and Easton ! I was on the edge of my seat (okay really my bed ) the entire time. 💕LOVE 💕LOVE💕LOVE💕

From Flame and Ash is the second book in the Elements of Five by Carrie Ann Ryan. The book is not a stand-alone and I would recommend starting the series from book one. I read From beath and ruin when it was released and still I had a little bit hard time to adjust into this world again. Just for the first couple of chapters though. The book ends with a cliffhanger and if you don't like that, my suggestion is to wait for all the books to be released before reading the series.

As most YA stories

Happening!!!

The book started off one year after the events that took place in the previous book with Lyric running back to the human world after she got scared. Learning and seeing so many intriguing and overwhelming things while in the Maison realm, she knew her life would never be the same again. She'd lost too many loved ones.



Despite her losses, she knew that she needed to continue her training as the Spirit Priestess. She had a very interesting dream, one that only reinforced what she alread

Absolutely excellent, this is not an easy journey for Lyric to live up to her potential as Spirit Priestess. There is heartbreak, a learning curve, and friendships of all different kinds. The start of the book was a little slow with a LOT of recaping from the first book, but is probably good for those that did not read the first, though I recommend that you do to get the full story and submersed into this world.

All in all this was a great installment and totally had me wondering what was going t

Although Lyric has been living in the human world she has accepted that it is time for her to accept her fate as the Spirit Priestess and return to the Maison realm so that she can discover the woman she is meant to be.

She returns believing that it will be Rhodes who will help her uncover the powers she hasn’t discovered yet and because of her feelings for him it gives her comfort but she soon finds out that she was mistaken. Rather she will be training with Easton and the Obscurite and the fee

This series is such a departure from what I know and love from Carrie Ann Ryan, but DANG. I LOVE THIS SERIES.

Lyric is a fantastic heroine, and her adventures along the way to finding herself are just incredible. The mythology she's built, the elemental components - this series speaks to my heart in so many ways. I was thrilled with the first one, but I actually think this one was better.

If you enjoy this kind of fantasy story, I cannot recommend this one highly enough!

This book was received as an ARC from Author Collective 20 in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

After having read the book, I realized that this is the second installment of the elements of five series and I must say if the first book was just as exciting as this one was then, I must read it. Even though in the beginning it was hard to get into the story but, as the story progressed I really grew to love lyric and the tenacity sh

Book 2 in Elements of Five series by Carrie Ann Ryan
This book is devastating a lot happens in last book and this does continue from previous but there is a slight break.
Lyric comes back to human realm to take a break but she struggles to come to terms with what happen previously. Lyric returns to Maison Realm to begin her training to become the Spirit Priestess.
I will admit that I listen to the first and third book in wrong order but still understood everything and things definitely make sense

This is definitely getting added to my favorites list!!! I loved EVERYTHING about this book. I've really been jonesing for something paranormal or fantasy and this definitely gave me my fix! I absolutely LOVE how Carrie Ann has written this series. You really feel like your are amongst the characters and living in this realm. It doesn't feel like I'm reading anything that is fantasy either, because there's such a "norm" about the way she writes their life and world.

Elements of 5 #2, This book pick up a year after Lyric returned home in that year she started college and trained with another person from the Maison realm.

Lyric has studied the history of the Maison realm and trained all that she can now she needs to awaken her other elemental powers. When she is called back it's not by her friend Rosemund and her brother Rhodes it's the new leader of
