Ash Princess- Review

Ash Princess (Ash Princess Trilogy, #1)Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wish I could give this book more than five stars. Laura Sebastian is by far one of my new favorite authors. After reading her “Castles in Their Bones” I needed more. Darker than most romantasy I read and so good. I finished the book last night and I already went to the bookstore to buy the sequels. Cannot praise this enough.
I love the characters and the fact than other than the king himself none of them are monochromatic in terms of personality. Even the evil ones have shades, redemptive qualities. And the “good” ones just like the main character, Theo, also have streaks of wickedness.
There is a definite feminist tang to the whole story as the plot questions the morality of war and the fight for survival. Is killing acceptable for a good cause? Is it okay to sacrifice one for the safety or many?
Love it! Highly recommend it.
