Book details:

Memories of Ash by Intisar Khanani
(The Sunbolt Chronicles #2)
Publication date: May 30th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis:
In the year since she cast her sunbolt, Hitomi has recovered only a handful of memories. But the truths of the past have a tendency to come calling, and an isolated mountain fastness can offer only so much shelter. When the High Council of Mages summons Brigit Stormwind to stand trial for treason, Hitomi knows her mentor won’t return—not with Arch Mage Blackflame behind the charges.
Armed only with her magic and her wits, Hitomi vows to free her mentor from unjust imprisonment. She must traverse spell-cursed lands and barren deserts, facing powerful ancient enchantments and navigating bitter enmities, as she races to reach the High Council. There, she reunites with old friends, planning a rescue equal parts magic and trickery.
If she succeeds, Hitomi will be hunted the rest of her life. If she fails, she’ll face the ultimate punishment: enslavement to the High Council, her magic slowly drained until she dies.

My review 

If you enjoyed book one and have been waiting-you're wait is over. And it's worth it. Or if you're like me and hadn't heard of this series yet- trust me and pick up book one now. I couldn't help myself, I read both books in one day. It's pretty phenomenal to keep my attention for that long lol! This one picks up a little time after the ending of book one. Hitomi is with Stormwind, studying peacefully. Hitomi doesn't remember everything that happened before but it never changed who she was. She's still the same loyal girl and still finding trouble not on purpose. And she finds new friends in new places. I love this author's way of describing places and scenery.  And we are learning more about the Mage world. And we see more fantastically written characters. Everything just keeps building a little at a time until your jaw drops! Some characters are new,
Some reoccurring. But I'll tell you- I love them all- even the totally well written bad guy!! And I'm struggling with talking about things without giving away too much! And since I haven't written my review for book one yet- no worries I just need to find some time- I have a lot to say and no way to say it without ruining something for someone. So I will just say READ THIS BOOK!!! Read this series!!!! And a completely awed WELL DONE!!!! 5 MAGICAL PAWS!!!
