I struggled to put this one down to give myself a chance to sleep or get some work done. Only Ashes Remain is a perfect title for the second book in the series where the main characters have a chance to actually digest all of the events from book one. I loved meeting some more creatures in the world and getting a chance to see the characters in a completely different setting. Looking forward to picking up the final book soon!

I picked up a copy of this book after the author was thanked in the author’s note of Iron Widow - so glad I did! This was a fast paced read with another femme main character that challenges her own lines of morality. This could be a tough read at points as there are some detailed moments of torture by a creature. I finished this one in just a few hours and picked up the second book later that day!

The ending twist has had me thinking about this book for weeks after I finished it!

I was so mad at the ending before I found out it was the first in a series.

Some of my views in this review may be controversial, and I ask that you respect my personal experience before considering commenting.

Content warnings:
The author lists the following warnings on her website: mentions of abuse, gaslighting, PTSD responses, violence, gore, mentions of kidnapping, murder, spiders, cults. There is no animal death, though there are some large monster deaths. There is no sexual violence on page, but there are discussions about how the media portrays abusive relationships, and mentions of violence against women in relation to that.

My additional warnings:

The topic of grief and trauma are ongoing themes throughout. Some trauma is a result of abusive relationships for several characters, and while the abuse does not happen in the book, there are discussions about abuse on page. Some that are almost theoretical in nature as one of the characters works through their own thoughts (I discuss this in my review) and the way this is framed may be triggering.

There are scenes discussing children being sold to traffickers and a scene showing a nightmare creature that has been sold into slavery as a pet. The theme of corruption, especially of government officials, runs throughout this book.


Please note that this review discusses the topic of abuse. The section of the review discussing this topic is hidden behind a spoiler tag, so it can be read or avoided as needed. If commenting on this topic, please put a trigger warning at the top of your comment. Thank you
