Happy Book Birthday~ Out of the Ashes by Kelly Hashway!

Out of the Ashes (Into the Fire, #2)



Seventeen-year-old Cara Tillman’s worst nightmare has come true…

She’s been reborn as a Phoenix and has forgotten everything from her first life—including Logan Schmidt. He’s handsome and protective, but with no recollection, he can’t be trusted.

Accused of being a Hunter, Logan’s mortality is put to the test…

Logan isn’t willing to admit he and Cara are over—not even after he watches her rise from her own ashes.

While the other Phoenixes are convinced Logan is a sworn enemy, a group of deadly Hunters are sure he is a Phoenix. Only being guilty of loving Cara, he must prove them all wrong—and convince Cara she loves him.

However, a magical link may be the demise of Logan’s devotion

With the Hunters hot on their heels, it’s up to Logan to save Cara. But when the dagger calls out, Logan is drawn to its power.

Cara’s missing memories may not be the only obstacle standing between her and Logan. Their relationship isn’t just complicated—it’s deadly. And when Cara finds herself at a crossroad, she is forced to choose…

She can plunge into the darkness of her treacherous fate, or use her Phoenix instincts to once again rise Out of The Ashes.

My Review

I am completely obsessed with this series! Book one ended and left a lot of pieces to be picked up and glued back together. Cara has gone through her Phoenix rebirth and remembers almost nothing. Someone is killing Phoenixes and with the original bad guy gone, it's a whole new mystery. And Logan is trying to find his own way. A lot of people are blaming him since Cara can't remember. But sometimes love has a way of working things out. 

I am so impressed with the characters in this go around. Book two is even better than book one. Logan gets a lot of screen time and it's wonderful seeing him fight for his love of Cara. He won't give up. And Cara is trying to be so many things to so many people. There's some great character growth to already wonderfully depth and creatively written world of Phoenixes and I loved every single second of it. 

The writing is spectacular. I could not put this one down. With everyone working against Cara and Logan yet they refuse to give up. And seeing more into the hunter scenes kept me in my toes. Suspenseful and well paced, it was definitely a page turner. And I loved that they fell in love all over again. But it's not over. You know something big is coming in book three. I am so ready for book three to surprise me just like this one did. And I will obsessively promote this series as not only being a Wonderful paranormal ya story but just a well written one as well! 5 MAGICAL FIERY PAWS!!
