Rise from Ash (Book Two – Daughter of Fire series) By Michelle Irwin Review @WriteOnShell



Love has cost Evie Meyers everything. Wounded and alone, she has no choice but to learn how to survive without becoming the monster she is thought to be by the man she loves.

When she discovers a cryptic message from that very man, Clay Jacobs, her mind is thrown into turmoil. It’s second nature for Evie to run, but there is no escaping the memories of their time together. While she is certain it’s a trap, she longs to discover the true meaning of his words. With heart battling mind, her choices send her on a collision course with what was once lost, leaving her life hanging in the balance.

Can Evie rise from the ashes of her charred dreams, or will she burn in the attempt?


Rise from Ash (Daughter of Fire #2)Rise from Ash by Michelle Irwin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

* gifted by the publisher for an honest review *

I have read and loved the first book Through the Fire by Michelle Irwinshe has written this series with a different twist with the Supernaturally Born Evie who is a Phoenix, who has been on the run nearly all her life from the relentless ‘Rain’ Hunters who are like some fanatic secret society who want to exterminate anything supernatural. and how she falls for a boy from her past who is unfortunately the son of ‘Rain Royalty’. He’s been brought up from birth to believe all Supernatural beings are evil and is a trained killer.

We then got to read Clay’s POV in Besieged by Rain and although I do not like books that tell the same story by an alternate POV, this book does give something to the overall series plot line and you can read more of my review by Clicking here

So in Rise from Ash – we are brought forward to the future when Evie is alone again, running and barely surviving… Now I do not want to tell you the story line so basically all I am going to say is that its a hard road Evie is walking, and it shows in the writing.

Will Evie ever find sanctuary? What has happened to Clay? Who is killing people and blaming Evie – is it ‘The Rain’ or is it something more sinister?

You are kept guessing quite a bit, I am glad that this story does end on a brighter note than how it begins, but we are left waiting to hear what happens next at the end of this book, when that will be, I don’t know, but I will be keeping an eye on Ms Irwin so I find out!

If you like Paranormal Romances with a bit of a different twist, then you want to check this series out.
