From the Ashes

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

Queen Aurora and King Jarvok are finding that there is a thin line between love, hate, and Oblivion. The war between the Court of Light and Dark has finally ended, and peace reigns. The Court of Light continued advising the human monarchs of Europe while the Court of Dark kept to themselves, intervening only to act as the humans Dark Gods and Goddesses. The two Courts were both upholding their respective duties as written by the Treaty of Bodhicitta, until Queen Mary the first of England reneges on a Changeling contract with the Court of Light. This unfortunate act puts events in motion which led to the last Fire Drake, Bishop Awynn, making the ultimate sacrifice. Awynn loses his light while saving The Dark Fae King during a tense standoff with Queen Aurora. Queen Aurora swears revenge upon Mary for Awynn's death and issues the same warning she gave her Father, King Henry the Eighth, so many years ago. However, King Jarvok had his own point of view on Queen Aurora's vengeance and pays Aurora a visit to deliver his critique of her technique, leading to a knock-down drag-out fight between the two Fae monarchs. Both Leaders refuse to bow even if it means certain Oblivion...
Reviews
Readers Favorite- Stephanie Chapman

I enjoyed every moment of this dark fantasy. Danielle Marie Orsino took great care to provide vivid details of every character. There was never a moment I could not picture. The emotional pain Jarvok attempts to hide reflects in his leadership skills. Aurora is not as rigid and tries diplomacy in decision-making. She appears to avoid confrontation but is pushy and manipulative. Suspense builds as others plot to interfere with Aurora’s plans. The supporting characters in the story are catalysts by adding intrigue. I found humor in Jarvok’s lieutenant, Zion. He has a playful streak and makes others laugh, but is not afraid to be blunt, even to Jarvok. Readers interested in dark fantasy romances involving Fae, dragons, and an intense cliffhanger ending will enjoy From the Ashes. I am eager to read the sequel because the end left me craving more.
