Ashlords by Scott Reintgen

The Book ✯✯✯✯✯

A captivating twist on the legend of the phoenix, Reintgen takes us into a completely foreign world that contains equal threads of Red Rising and The Hunger Games with enough originality to sit proudly beside both on the shelf.

Throughout the novel, we follow three points of view. One told in second person, the other two told in first. While it took a moment to get used to, it also worked to fully immerse the reader in the new world while giving them a near omniscient perspective.

The characters were well-rounded with realistic goals and feelings. Staying true to brand, Reintgen keeps the characters neutral in who is really right and who is really wrong. And honestly, outside a meddling Parthenon that would make the Greek gods proud, no one is truly out to make a mess of evil things and all feel they are justified in their actions and prejudice.

I cannot wait to see where this series goes, and am biting at the bit for the next rebirth.

Thank you to Joshua Redlich at Random House Children's book for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed herein are my own.
