"King of Ash and Bone" by Melissa Wright


King of Ash and BoneKing of Ash and Bone by Melissa Wright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Almost a year after I first began reading this epic dystopian novel, I finally finished it! The best part was once I started it up again, I couldn't put it down until I read the last word. I have been a long time fan of Melissa Wright's works, ever since I stumbled upon Frey in the "free" category on Amazon. I fell in love with the Frey Saga and hounded the poor author until she had finished her fantastical series. The Descendants was equally exciting for me, albeit a different genre. I enjoyed seeing this author grow and show off her talent for characters with a lot of snark and personality. King of Ash and Bone is her latest series, this time a dystopian fairy tale set not to far from the present. Wright did a wonderful job drawing you into her characters lives, and especially detailing the sudden fall of civilization. King of Ash and Bone is very different from her previous two series and promises even more surprises and wondrous discoveries for the future. Impatiently waiting for the next installment!
