Sometimes, falling in love really is the end of the world... Ivy has always seen things that she cannot explain. Strange things. Otherworldly things. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse--her hallucinations are real, and her sister is imprisoned in a realm beyond Ivy's reach. The one person who can help her is the dangerously attractive rebel who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. The fate Adrian has fought to escape is here - but he never expected the burning need he feels for Ivy. With destiny on one side and desire on the other, Adrian must help Ivy search for the powerful relic that can save her sister. Yet he knows what Ivy doesn't: the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could destroy the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side, Adrian on the other, and nothing but ashes in between...

I was given a special offer to purchase firsts in the series in audiobook format for a deal! Of course, as much as I LOVE listening to audiobooks, I was all over it. I purchased several, and The Beautiful Ashes is one of them. It is not only written by one of my favorite authors, it also posed a wonderful concept; a paranormal romance that isn’t about vampires, werewolves etc. Hell, those creatures aren’t even in this one! What is in this book is Angels, Demons, and two extraordinary people thrown together; one on a quest for revenge, the other on a rescue mission.
I was blown away by Tavia Gilbert, and really look forward to listing to more work from her, superb narrator! She brought the world to life ; I felt like I was there!
I loved this new world Jeaniene Frost has created; it is so far removed from her Night Huntress or A Night Prince series, I was blown away. I can NOT wait for book 2; The Sweetest Burn, and I don’t have to wait for the audiobook, it's being released the same day! WOOHOO!
