Memories of Ash by Intisar Khanani
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read Sunbolt which had been sitting on my kindle for a while; I knew that this was releasing soon and preferred to wait so I could read them back to back.
I was definitely not disappointed.
Picking up shortly after the ending of the SUNBOLT, Hitomi and her mage teacher Stormwind are visited by an old friend of Stormwind. A rogue mage hunter. Stormwind is escorted off to stand trial, leaving Hitomi behind. Still missing a large part of her memories, Hitomi is still Hitomi and sets off to rescue her teacher and friend.
This series is adventurous and magical. I love who Hitomi is and I love how she puts others before her self. I was delighted that we were reunited with a few characters from SUNBOLT, although her old enemy is alive and well and at the heart of the evil building up tensions, etc.
I cannot wait to read more and see what becomes of Hitomi and Val and Stormwind and the Phoenix and the council and and and...
In some ways, I wish I hadn't discovered this series until several years from now so that I don't have to wait for the next book. LOL
Enjoyable reads with plenty of adventure and a nice blend of cultures.
