From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new novel in her Blood and Ash series… 

Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance?

A Betrayal…

Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.

A Choice….

Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.

A Secret…

But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

    Just finished and I’m about to read it again ! Decadent. This book is hot fudge brownies and wine for the soul.
  • Extremely repetitive

    By Mags.parkin
    Okay, to start- the series is phenomenal and I could not stop reading the first book. But this second book as been somewhat of a let down. It’s so repetitive I have a hard time reading without getting distracted by something else. Poppy is still in copious amounts of unrelenting denial for no reason. She knows the truth of her kingdom and what Casteel had done to save her, and she has been given very little reason to continue to fight back against him and continuously try to escape. The conversations and arguments are on what seems to be a long loop, of the same explanation given by casteel and the same questions being asked over and over and over again by poppy. She’s frustratingly daft throughout the entire book and there are many pointless monologues and scene builders throughout the book that just take too much time and space in the book to read. I often skipped pages worth of their conversations and inner monologue to end up still reading the same things and getting just as much information skipping 10 pages as I would have reading them all. I love the story but I’m sincerely hoping that the potential isn’t wasted in the third book

    If you are a fan of the wonderful Sara J Maas’ multiple series, you will definitely enjoy getting into these books as well. I can’t wait for this third book to come out!
  • Couldn’t put it down!

    By kibmj
    This should be in the diet section because I was so engulfed I forgot to eat. Just the right ratio of adventure and romance. Has plenty of “I did not see that coming” moments but not so much that it’s annoying. My absolute only critique is they try to drawl out the “will-they-won’t they” scenario so, some of the banter and arguments can kind of get repetitive.

    It was AMAZING!!! As someone who’s just getting into reading books, I was hooked!!
  • Unexpected writing

    By swtthng
    Over and over I caught myself thinking of the approach this author took that felt modern and current- female forward vs old school tired. So fun and exciting to read!! Cannot wait for the 3rd book!!
  • Even more perfect!

    By Da Shitman
    The first book was perfect, yet this one was even better. My husband was mad at me the whole time I binge read these books because I refused to talk to him. I was filled with dread the closer I got to the end because I never wanted it to stop! It truly left me dumbstruck and wanting more immediately, it's going to be a real struggle waiting for April!
