All of you may have noticed that Rae Lori has been such a wonderful person to have helped me out with posted some of her reviews of books she’s read and recommends to others. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing her two months ago in December about her writing and her book A Kiss of Ashen Twilight, which is book 1 of her Ashen Twilight series. Well today I’ve just finished reading my ARC of the novel which Rae sent me an autographed print copy of for me to read and review. Haunted by dreams of a mysterious yet seductive figure that Ariya, the heroine, has yet to find out more about but then she awakens to a more dangerous nightmare. There is a vicious elemental creature out there and it has nearly wiping out her entire family except for her. Her parents have urged her to cross over into the mortal realm right before the elemental creature could get to her and there she is saved from another attack against strange shifter wolves. Her rescuer is Jace Archane, the hero, an immortal Nightwalker from the House of Blood within the Ashen Twilight House and he is also the very same man from her mysterious dreams that she has been having before.

I was a little confused about the House of Blood and all the other terms that they use in this book but I finally figured out what was going on as things started to become more clear. Now Jace and Ariya’s attraction to each other is evident since the moment they met each other in that horrific fight when Ariya first came into the mortal realm. Yet Jace is reluctant to lower his guard, having spent lifetimes coming to terms with death’s curse since he was turned into a Nightwalker because for some reason everyone he feeds from dies. This is something that only happens to him even though he doesn’t mean to feed from mortals until their lives slip away His uncle Julian has tried to teach him to do what he does as he feeds and leaves the mortals living but forgetful of what happened but it hasn’t helped Julian. But Ariya is not going let his fear of contact control their attraction for one another and despite his attempts at distance himself, she remains by his side in a desperate bid to stay safe and near to Jace. Now the elemental has followed her from her realm and into the mortal realm in hopes of draining her life force and powers.

This is one creature that is hard to destroy on one’s own but they have to defeat it because it will not stop until it has the power and life force of Ariya. But when Shelley a woman of the House of Blood is murdered after leaving Jace’s home the fight is brought to the doorstep of the Ashen Twilight House. Now the race is on to find out the origins of the elemental creature and stop the horrific killing spree because this elemental creature has even infected mortals with a disease that could kill the immortals of the Ashen Twilight House. As they dig deeper into the mystery, they will uncover a truth that ties the elemental’s origins to a forgotten ally with plans to overthrow the Archane legacy and obtain Ariya’s fairy blood fueling an immortal thirst for power. This is one novel that I could not put down because there was so much action and emotion going on between all the characters that held me captivated.

Ariya’s people are such complex characters because they are also mythical creatures that the mortals have hyped up but I’m still not all sure about what the Aziza people are. I also especially liked that Jace and his uncle Julian are Scotsmen from the 1400s because they make for some very interesting characters. The other characters in this novel kept me very intrigued because there were many twists and turns that were taken that kept me on my toes to find out what would happen next. By the time I finished this novel I was pretty excited to get to read more about these amazing paranormal creatures that make up the Ashen Twilight series but unfortunately I will have to wake a couple of months before the next book will be available in a couple of months. Before I read this book I saw the sneak peak that Rae has one her website but that didn’t compare to actually getting the whole story when you read this novel. I really recommend A Kiss of Ashen Twilight to all you paranormal romance readers out there and to everyone else who likes to read something new. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
A KISS OF ASHEN TWILIGHT by Rae Lori $ 5.50 (Book 1)(310 Pages in Paperpack)(284 Pages in e-Book)

Phoebe Jordan

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
