Heart of Ash did not live up to the standard Blood and Salt set The first book was on a smaller intimate scale that held the tension really well Then Heart of Ash turned it into a
Global Conspiracy That Just Took Away From conspiracy that just took away from original story Where Ash used to be a mature teen who had to deal with a lot of adult stuff and did it capably she then turned into that annoying teen who flip flopped on very little thing and spent most of the book talking herself in and out of loving Dane OMG stop Y all got way bigger fish to fry here It felt like Blood and Salt should have had just a few xtra pages that could have resolved the whole saga but Leggitt tried to draw the story out and fell flat Katia and Coronado s story became petty and unrealistic fantasy realism is different than actual realism lol I was so xcited about this seuel but overall I just didn t like it I ll give it 3 stars I read an ARC copy of this book so maybe there s still a chance that it could get better This book was bad physically painful for me to read The timing was all over the place Two pages to cover important plot points and way too many pages xplaining stupid unnecessary details The characters were boring and one dimensional and I found myself really not caring It was like the bad parts of The Fire Sermon mixed with the bad parts of New Moon Do not recommend Heart of Ash is so much better than Blood and Salt Honestly I think a lot of the problems I had with the first book were actually plot points that helped build this seuel so I m not as bitter as I had been by the time I d finished it I m so glad Kim Liggett finally gave us one too because I was so much invested in this book compared to its predecessor It s been a good 2 years since I read Kim Liggett s Blood and Salt I remembered njoying it and being shell shocked by the cliffhanger nding and then last year she wrote #HEART OF ASH WHICH CONCLUDED THE #of Ash which concluded the Granted as always my memory wasn t super hot on the first book Even my notes weren t ntirely detailed like I keep trying to do now But thankfully Ash does her own bit of a recap and I was able to remember the Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, events fairly well or at least wellnough to get through the beginning stages of the book. Ash may have scaped the immortal worshipping cult that killed her mother but the love of her life is still under its thrall Dane has been possessed by his diabolical ancestor Coronado a man who's fabulously wealthy. Just kind of get that sense that verything will be all right
"with those who "those who and while there is a feeling of contentedness I just kind of wished there was a bit But all in all a satisfying conclusion to the duology Overall Rating 355 stars We re like a dissonant chord in the finale of Beethoven s Ninth Symphony begging for resolution As long as we re apart there will never be peace in the worldharmony pg 41 of Heart of AshAsh Larkin barely survived a year ago when she was caught in the crossroads of a cult s curse and
