To start off a warning that there are no actual dragons in this book, rather the dragons are a unit of Parsathean warriors, that act as the parts of a dragon, the heart, the claw, the sting, the shield, etc.

Yvenne has been kept captive in a Tower with her mother all her life. She comes from a long line of warrior-queens and though she may be small, she is smart and has the courage of a lion. Her father's ambitions, corruption and cruelty knew no bounds. She knew of the world only by her mother's teaching and visions and her father's abuses. When she sees her chance to escape and exact revenge on her father and take back her crown she seizes it by taking on Maddek.

Maddek is the commander of the alliance armies and vows vengeance when he learns of his parents death at the hands of the Yvenne's father. He kidnaps Yvenne intending to exact his revenge but instead accepts her counter offer to join forces against her father.

There is so much goodness in this epic tale it's hard not to reveal too much. Milla is an artist bringing these characters alive, the avenging warrior and the quick witted queen, with hopes of more than a cold alliance. We see these two grow with each other as warrior learns to become a king and a queen learn to become a warrior. There is no instant love here, it's a slow burn that gets hotter and hotter. Maddek has a lot to overcome to learn to trust and care for Yvenne and he hurts her in the process. Thank god even when she gave up on him, he managed to convince her to give him another shot. I loved these two for each other and don't get me started on his Dragon! Loved his guards, they were such a great warrior family and that they were willing to become Yvenne's family when her's were so evil.

I won a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

First book by this author.
Really enjoyed it.
Very good.
Brooding Hero and misunderstood heroine.
The heroine is also strong in her own way though not a warrior.
Heroine is a virgin and the Hero has been celibate for some years as he's been fighting for his country and also he is aware his parents were seeking a bride for him so he feels it isnt right to be with others.
Bit violent and some possible triggers from treatment of and by enemies, though not gratuitous.
Loads of cultural history and legendary stories.
Secondary characters introduced that could have their own stories.

Incredible World Building and Absolutely Amazing Characters!

I'm torn about whether this story is 4 or 5 stars. It was an enjoyable reading experience and everything about it was well done, but I didn't devour it like most books. I was content to read it at leisure. And that didn't fit the tone of the journey. They were on a vengeful quest and running for their lives so I feel like I should have been more on the edge of my seat unable to put it down. At the same time it was a long journey and a cunker of a book soooo taking the time to savor it makes sense too. Either way it's a great book.

The depth of the world building is epic giving you many layers without going overboard or info dumping. The Characters are so multidimensional watching our hero grow was heart warming. The loyalty of his people overwhelming. The strength and determination of our heroine is awe inspiring. I can't wait for the next book. ( )

A Heart of Blood and Ashes is the FIRST book in a THRILLING adventure series by Milla Vane. Now this is the first time I have actually read this author, I, of course, have seen her name around since she has done some anthologies and other writing projects but I was so thrilled to see a full length (really full length at almost 600 pages) epic fantasy romance. I am sure I have mentioned this before but there just isn’t enough of this genre to satisfy me in any way and I am so happy to see that this author come out with such an exciting premise to a story. I took way too long getting to this book and I honestly am baffled at my own behavior in wondering why it took me so long to read this book here. I simply loved every single page.

Our delightful story begins with our hero, Maddek, who is a fierce warrior and heir to his father’s throne. But when his parents are murdered…..Maddek’s driving force is revenge against those who killed him parents so viciously. When a missive from a servant of another kingdom informs him that Yvenne is the one who brought his family to danger, he is out for blood. When he finds her, she is traveling in a caravan on her way to a betrothal but when he confronts her and her brother, Yvenne is not the woman he expects and even though she convinces him to marry her to regain her powerful kingdom and get his true revenge against her father ….their truce isn’t an easy one but these two enemies soon become lovers in the most beautiful of ways. Soon Maddek and Yvenne will have to face off enemies they never imagined…..

what a truly astounding book this turned out to be. I do want to warn readers though, this book starts out a bit slow as the author is setting the stage of the worldbuilding. It picks up quickly once you get through the first few chapters. So I highly recommend you stick with it and you will be golden. It also has some darker elements at times, but when you see what these two are both battling with, it definitely makes sense in that. There is so much to this book I don’t even know where to start to be honest. The world building alone is extensive and so well balanced, I love how vividly its portrayed and you can definitely see how much thought this author went in going into writing this novel. And so many great mixes of characters and creatures that you are confronted with. I loved that this was a whole NEW world that this author creates…so expect plenty of details to open the eyes of your imagination even more.

The romance that builds between these two is so sensual and fabulous in all the swoony ways we expect to see in a romance. Now there is plenty of angst especially the first half of the story, but its not too much. I really loved how these two entangled with each other. It was quite a delight to see them stand on their own and against each other and seeing little by little becoming endeared to each other. Its not instant love in any way, these two really have to work to receive their happy ever after….but it does happen and its delicious.

Overall I found A Heart of Blood and Ashes to be an astounding read that will captivate the reader from the first page….stunning picturesque detail, sensuality dripped on each page, characters that steal your heart and a love tale so rich in its design you won’t be able to put this page turner down until the very end…..HEART AND SOUL —BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY!
