Book 3 in this exciting PNR series.

This is west and Evalgalines story.

West was Evangeline's guardian, he was also her destined mate - he wouldn't act on it as he didn't believe he was worthy.

Evangaline is now the queen and is still smarting from rejection, she still loves him though.

West is busy trying to keep her safe without her knowing, its not long until the two of them are pushed together again and at last they see the light.

Oh wow! Annie Anderson took my expectations and went one better. I love the strong, independent women that she has created and their loyal and strong mates. They have weaknesses and faults but they work through the issues in complicated, all too real life, ways. Life isn't always easy but their relationships forge a path to brighter futures.

A fluid and fast read, all I wanted to do was get myself to the end so I knew what was coming next. But I didn't want the story to end either! I can't wait

I really liked this one!! I want to be kick ass like Evangeline!! She knew what she wanted and she wasn't afraid. I'm glad West got his crap together. I liked the different POV from the other characters. Squee for Aurelia and Rhys!!! Such a good PNR read. Hope there's more!!

First, many thanks go to the author; I was given access to a copy of this manuscript back several months ago for a pre-read and an edit. Truth to tell, I was already wanting to read it, just from hearing the buzz about it. I had not - and have not, yet, read the first two books in this series. (Don’t worry, I will.) I went into this novel with only the barest information about this world, gleaned from my BFF’s having read them. So, I knew the mechanics of this world, but not the details. What ma ...more

Rising Ashes
By: Annie Anderson

4 star review by Kristie K.

Just when you thought the evil witch was dead...

Evangeline "Evan" Black is one seriously powerful woman. Recently rising to Queen of her people, Evan has something to prove, and a whole race of people to set to rights. More than capable of being the leader they need, Evan has the power and potential to save the world...but she never thought she would have to lead without her rock by her side. West has a past,

Another book by Annie Anderson that I really enjoyed. Rising Ashes is the 3rd book in the Ashes to Ashes Paranormal series. This story is complicated enough that you will need to start at book 1 before you read Rising Ashes. The order for reading this series is:

1. Scattered Ashes
2. Falling Ashes
3. Rising Ashes and it looks like a 0.5 will be out in October 2016
4. Smoldering Ashes – tentative December 2016

Thank you for keeping the Glossary of Terms. This story can g

This is the third book in this series and they need to be read in order. I absolutely love this series and this book didn’t disappoint. This book focuses on Evan and West as a couple but the group as a whole for the fights and such as always. You get to read about the other characters as well. With both of Evan’s parents passing in book 2 she is now the Queen of the Wraiths. She is frustrated with West’s refusal to bond to her and with the loss of her parents it has pushed her over. Since he won ...more

As always Annie has hit it out of the park, across the Atlantic and brought it home with the next installment in the Ashes to Ashes Series. talk about a lot of heart clinching moments followed by some seriously hot, bad-ass moments. If you loved Ari and Mena.. dude's hold onto your knickers, cause a pissed off Even.. Yikes. Girlfriend is hella hot. Just Saying.

I was lucky enough to be a Beta reader for Rising Ashes so I got a first look but that does not play a part in my review. this book is a

I've said this about the two previous books...this is the series that brought me back to paranormal. I had stopped reading paranormal for several years and then found Scattered Ashes and since then I find that few other paranormal series are of this quality. The writing is brilliant, sure there's some absolutely fabulous romance but it's beyond paranormal romance. There's adventure and edge of your seat action on just about every page.

But let's talk about this book, Rising Ashes. Thi

Rising Ashes is the third book in the Ashes to Ashes series and boy can I tell you that I absolutely love reading this series. It is adventurous and keeps you on the edge of your seat on what is going to happen next. Annie wrote some strong characters from the beginning but in this book you really find out who has the strong leader traits. You will find out what makes a strong leader and if they can handle themselves in difficult situations that could very well be the last. You never know exactl ...more

What can I say about this book other than it's nothing short of amazing? What can be said about an electrifying, soul shattering, heartbreaking, play on words. This book definitely touches something deep in me in at a time I needed a smile and my world was definitely upside down. This book just like the other gripped me then held me from beginning till the end.

First of all, it’s important that you read the first two books in the Ashes to Ashes series. Each of them ends on a cliff hanger, and the third book continues the story that started in the first book although the main characters are different. I reread the second book before started Rising Ashes because I wanted to make sure I remembered correctly all the many and varied characters. I also loved the paranormal world that Annie Anderson created.

Rising Ashes is book three in this series. I would highly recommend reading books one then two before starting this one. There's a lot that happens that leads up to this book, and it's definitely one that's needed to be read in order.
It seems like I've waited a long time for Evan and West's story. When I first met them in book one, I really wasn't sure if there would be a book on them. I'm glad Annie Anderson wrote this one as it's just as action packed as the others. Evan comes

Seriously, why are there only 5 stars? There needs to be more.

Rising Ashes was everything I hoped for and more for Evan and West. These two deserved an amazing story and Anderson delivered. Their story was filled with love and loss, passion and heartbreak, and unbelievable highs and lows. Every minute of their journey, intense and enthralling.
Anderson writes the most badass heroines I've ever read. They are fierce, loyal, and incredibly powerful. I absolutely love reading about these women. And for all the alpha fans out ther

All hail Queen Evangeline!

As the newly crowned Queen of the Wraith, Evangeline Black must learn who she can and can't trust. Unfortunately for her, she sent away the one man she can literally... trust with her life.

West Carmichael has loved Evan since the moment they met, but he never felt himself worthy of the daughter of the King. He felt the only real place he fit on her life was as her guard.

After years of denying their bond, Evan has enough. To protect her heart, she leaves he

Never a dull moment in this series, we pick up right where we left off at Evan’s beloved parents funeral, with an attack by less then happy wraiths. Evan is stricken with grief and anger, and we all know that’s a lethal combination when it comes to our feisty gal, and she sets her sights on controlling and conquering her enemies and followers.

We get an amazing glimpse into the past; back to the first time West sees Evan, and the instant love and devotion he has for her. This man brings me to my

this book was so well worth waiting for , straight into an attack by rebel wraiths at Evans parents funeral & it never stops the rest of the book . we learn a lot more about West & why he loves Evan but doesn't want to bond with her, old allegiances are tested & new ones formed to hunt a hidden enemy . the past comes back in new forms but still as evil as ever but still got quirky bits of humour among all the tension & sometimes horror .

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

This is the next installment of the Ashes to Ashes series. I devoured this book. I couldn't get enough. Wes thinks he's doing the right thing by staying away, Evan thinks he's doing this for different reasons. The pull between them is strong. Their chemistry is off the charts and the sex.. whew, hot, steamy, and addictive!! Action, adventure, death, weddings, births, and a surprise that I never saw coming! I know that this is a sho

Such a wonderful series!

Rising Ashes picks up were Falling Ashes left off. This book is basically an all out war of good vs evil! All the same players, with a few new additions and revelations. Relationships grow, as does friendship that becomes family. Annie has truly outdone herself bringing all of these characters to life in a world you feel you're living in. You live through every emotion imaginable. It's as action packed as the first two books, with so much more. I'm hoping Book Four is a

Book three in this series continues smoothly so if you haven't read books one or two, these should be read in order. Our amazing main character has to figure out her new role and take the necessary steps to get things under control. This skilled writer keeps you totally under suspense wondering still if the fated mates would ever be together. This book lacks for nothing. Mystery, suspense, action, paranormals with unique abilities and highly imaginative creative genius that keeps my nose buried ...more

WOW! WOW! WOW! This book is AMAZING!!! Rising Ashes is West and Evangeline's story. This book is my favorite among the first 2 books in the series. From the start up to the last, I was hooked on this book. Evangeline is a kick-ass heroine! Love her angst. She's my favorite. West, I sometimes want to kick him but as the story goes I got to love him more and more. Rising Ashes is full of action and drama. So love this book!!!! Can't wait what's next for this series! Ms. Annie nailed it!

They just keep getting better!

This book was so good. Each book in the series not only gives a couples storyline but advances the series storyline just the right amount to answer the questions that linger from the previous book, and to raise enough new questions to entice you to continue on. These books are well written and edited. I did recieve for a read / review but would definitely have no problem purchasing outright. Great Book!

As always Annie killed it again. My favorite in the series so far. Evan is now the queen of the Wraiths trying to deal with the loss of her parents while also trying to take out the people that killed them. She sent the man she loved away because he wouldn't bond with her which adds so the levell of craziness she is dealing with. Through it all though Evan is a strong, kick ass woman

I freaking loved Evan and West's story! Great paranormal series that gives you a little bit of everything you want: love, lust, steamy scenes, fighting/action and the back story of some of the characters. I love this series and going to start Nicola and Kyle's next. If you love paranormal, you will love this series.

Amazing, engaging, fun read!

Annie keeps me on the edge of my seat and cycling through so many emotions with this book series. I honestly get so excited with how the book flows and she does an awesome job ending the current story with promise of more to come! Definitely read this series, but I warn, it's almost impossible to put down once you start.

This is book three in the series. Aurelia and Mena are still in this story but it's mostly about the love of Evangelina Black (the new queen of the wraith) and her guardian West. But don't think Annie just wrote a romance novel. There's some kick ass fighting going on in this book. You won't be able to put it down. I received an advance copy of the book in exchange for an honest review

I haven't read the other books in this series, but I most definitely plan to do so. Even without having the benefit of having read books 1 and 2 I still enjoyed the plot, the characters, and the pace of the story. Annie Anderson is a very talented author and I'm happy I discovered her!
